We wanted a pre-theatre meal. My wife is Coeliac and so before I booked I checked that they could cater for Gluten Free (GF). The waitress did not seems to understand the question and so I repeated it and said, for example, did they have GF pasta. She checked and the answer was 'yes' so as the Ciccheti appeared to... More

Excellent food and relaxed setting. Sat on a table for two by the window and welcomed by the head waiter. Food was every bit as good as usual and the service was excellent. Good value for money.

My sea bass was perfect, but the service was a bit pretentious. We were seated at what turned out to be a very draughty table despite better tables being available, and staff shrugging shoulders when I complained. Guess we should have asked to move but didn't realise how cold it would get 'til it was too late. It took too... More

I visited cicchetti again yesterday evening with a group of friends and family. We all enjoyed the lovely food. The atmosphere as always was very welcoming. The aperol spritz was a lovely summer cocktail despite the rain outside.

The restaurant is great for a spot of brunch during a shopping trip. We had the Big Breakfast which was huge! In the past ive also had the eggs benedict which is lovely. Only downside is the restaurant appears to share toilets with the house of fraser and these were very dirty and not very pleasant for diners.

I've been several times for dinner, had mixed experiences, but always thought I would return. Tried for breakfast on Sunday as we wanted some good coffee and high quality food. The coffee was great, the food not so. We both ordered eggs, mine poached which came hard, scrambled was 'OK' a big surprise was the bread choice, it was literally... More

Every time we walk past this place, we say we must try it. This evening we did and what a great surprise. I wasn't really sure what to expect...we've been to San Carlo across the road and its great, if usually very loud and busy. Here, we were shown to a table for 2 in the window, it was nice... More

Ate there again yesterday and wasn't disappointed. The food is very good, the ambiance is great and the people interesting (that is if you like footballers wives and shopaholics....) They serve Italian style tapas. Small, very tasty dishes at reasonable prices. You'll have to order several dishes if you're hungry.

Went here today and it was wonderful, ordered 6 dishes between two of us, would highly recommend the fritto portofino, all the dishes were brought out quickly with lovely service, most dishes range from about £6.50-£10, would certainly eat here again and enjoyed it more than San Carlo itself across the road..
