This place remains a go-to location but it has lost its zip. The potato leek soup was first rate. But the pasta chicken Calabrese was bland. The house white Sauvignon blanc was not very good, a tinny aftertaste. At a later meal we ordered a Super Tuscan from an unknown vintner. It was awful and we sent it back. Service... More

decor is very calm / restful but somewhat casual. Server was very conscientious, remembered every special request. Refilled water regularly, checked back, etc. Friendly, but not over-familiar. Spinach Salad delicious; tomatoes in caprese salad very tasty; calamari a bit chewy. Three versions of design-your-own pasta were good, but I wish they'd offer 1/2 portions. No one could come close to... More

Wilmington's Fairfield shopping area includes many upscale stores and this amazing restaurant. I found the low-lighting, high-ceiling restaurant quite romantic though it did make reading the low-contrast menu a challenge, and we had some service glitches as a result. We enjoyed wine, appetizer, and entrees for two in a setting reminiscent of my dining on the piazza in Cremona years... More

We chose this place based on reviews that the food was good. I had lobster ravioli, my husband had tortellini. Plenty of lobster in ravioli and was good as was the tortellini. We thought it was more fine dining, but very casual restaurant. Seemed busy but we had good service. A bit over priced for what they were serving.

I have been to this place multiple times over the years, both casually and for special occasions. I have never had a bad experience. The food is fantastic! Prices are well-ranging, so you can eat relatively cheaply for Italian at lunch time, and can work your way up at dinner time. Pesto is out of this world and the best... More

Our favorite Wilmington restaurant, this was where my husband chose to take me to celebrate our 48th Wedding Anniversary! We have also been here with our whole family including grandchildren, a great big church group, and a large ladies' gathering. The wait staff is always superior, food always delicious, and it's also a top value place to eat! Can't beat... More

Our service was so great we asked to speak to the manager to let him know that our waitress Starr was the best.

Went here for lunch with a friend and the food was excellent. I am so happy there is finally a restaurant with a really good red sauce that reminds me of the Italian families I grew up with. A true Italian pizza. the garlic rolls are great too. The servers are nice but need to be more attentive I feel.... More

From the minute we walked into Osteria Cicchetti, we felt we were transported to an Italian villa. The atmosphere is stunning, warm, and inviting. We ordered a bottle of wine, which was a bit pricey; but it was my birthday, so I need not say more? The bread was delicious, crusty, and fresh. When we asked for more bread, the... More

Everyone I work with raved about this place, so when my fiances parents came to visit and wanted Italian fare I knew where to go. Our waitress was kind but not very attentive. It was so loud that you had to almost yell to hear anything; the place was not packed so it must just be the way the building... More
