Osteria Cicchetti Restaurant: OC Review
Hearts: Large portions, reasonably priced, lovely setting and gluten free pastas available upon request.
Farts: bring on the chocolate sauce and can be a tad noisy in the large dinning area.
This was our second time to the Osteria Cicchetti, affectionately dubbed the OC by locals here in Wilmington. This lovely Italian restaurant is located directly across from Mayfair. On this trip we brought a guest visiting from Florida.
Before entering, one is greeted by a lovely fountain. Definitely a charming addition to the ambiance.
Once inside, there are several dinning areas. I prefer not to sit in the larger dinning area as it can get a bit noisy when the restaurant is busy which is often.
We went for lunch on this day and I ordered their Italian salad topped with their special fish of the day Halibut.
YOF ordered the Tre Colore salad topped with salmon. Her salad consisted of arugula, endive, radicchio, and was dressed in balsamic vinaigrette.
My friend ordered the house special. A lovely dish of fresh fish atop fresh mixed vegetables.
For dessert YOF and YAH opted to once again order the profiteroles while my friend opted for the cheesecake. Both are well made and we would recommend them highly.
