  • We have been celebrating special occasions; usually anniversary, at Cicio's for 20 years. This includes our planned visit this evening. The food, the service, the friendliness of staff and the atmosphere have been outstanding every time. The waiter (Speedy - god rest his soul) was always great to deal with.

    The stratiatella soup and veal picata a limone and fettucini alfredo are all to die for.

    Any bad reviews on this web site must be an anomaly.

    We will continue going there as long as they are there!!

  • Order: Stratiatella soup, veal picata a limone, fettucini alfredo

  • I visited Ciccio Caffe on a local recommendation and I wish I knew about this place sooner! It's very authentic, the service is as friendly as can be, and the food was amazing.. we even ordered the gnocchi to have on my flight the following day. We were warned that it can be busy around dinner time but they really went out of their way to fit us in (thank you!). We tried so many other places on Preston and between being treated like a number at some larger restaurants and dealing with being overcharged at other locations, we loved Ciccio's!!

  • Order: Gnocchi, Veal, Antipasta, and more Gnocchi!

  • My husband, my daughter (20 months old) and I had lunch here the other day (April 29th 2010). We were rudely greeted by a woman in the restaurant with "yes, can I help you!" I thought to myself, that's rude, what does she think that we are here for the bathroom????? She sat us down and I asked for a high chair. They did not have one (what restaurant does not have a high chair?), but we got a booster seat for my daughter. The service was below average. We never got our beverages refilled, the waiter did not come back to make sure the food was good or if we needed something else with our meal. Never offered any cracked pepper or cheese. At the end of the meal, we were not asked if we wanted desert. The meal was good not the best that I have had...Overall, the experience from beginning to end was terrible. I would never recommend for anybody to go to this restaurant. Needless to say, they will never get my business again!

  • Order: lasagna and canneloni combination, spaghetti carbonara

  • Earth shattering! Each and everytime I go I have to get it. Sometimes it is a special and not on the menu for the day and they have whipped it up especially for me. The lunch service is excellent and the waiters know several of the patrons by name which to me is always the sign of a good restaurant.

  • Order: Liver

  • Went with 2 other guest to this cozy restaurant. The service was good , a bit slow and laid back which is typical in Italy. The food was fantastic and all 3 of us had different and incredibly tasty meals. The desserts were also A++ in quality. I definately recommend this place.

  • Order: Veal Scallapini , Tiramisu

    The food was wonderful as well as the wines they are more than willing to recommend! I will definitely be going back to Canada for this one...
