We had a nice lunch there the other day. My wife and I split a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs. The sauce was excellent as were the meatballs. Our waiter was excellent. The gelato was not so good, and we didn't finish it. The ambiance...More

We stopped for an early dinner before getting on the road home. Food was nothing special and way overpriced. For an Italian restaurant, bread should be a signature. We had to ask twice for it and were given a basket of warmed up day-old white...More

The food and service were very good. We had a nice table outside and enjoyed our meal. We were finishing as the restaurant filled up completely. That was probably a good thing. This was on a Monday evening.

We have made Cicciotto’s one of our top family restaurants this year. My children call our favorite server (Edoardo) our friend. He is fantastic! Remembers details and is always warm and friendly. He makes coming in for delicious food extra fun.

After reading several reviews we decided to have dinner at Ciccotti’s. The tomato sauce for the bread was good but not the bread making for less than an auspicious beginning. The Calamari was very good but not much else was. Two of the entrees ordered...More
