About Cicchetti

Owner Susan Kaufman was originally inspired by her love-affair with the small plates, or “cicchetti,” she discovered at Venetian tapas bars. As she traveled extensively throughout the Mediterranean, she found a unifying thread in both the flavors and atmospheres of the casual and warm eating environments she frequented. Determined to bring the essence of all of these cultures and flavors home, she launched Cicchetti Kitchen + Bar in November of 2009. Respecting the unique Seattle architectural gem designed by George Suyama, she transformed the décor into a modern, convivial space that reflects a traditional Venetian aesthetic with a distinct Northwest attitude. The rest is history.

I love this restaurant. The small plates are great and I love that you can get three appetizers at happy hour for a really reasonable price.

My husband and I were lucky enough to be married at Cicchetti. We returned for our anniversary and were greeted with sparkling cava by our waitress. I had marked that we were celebrating our anniversary on the Open Table app and was pleasantly surprised by the gesture. The menu had changed some what since we had last been in. We enjoyed some old favorites and new items as recommended by the staff. Everything came out in a timely manner. We even enjoyed some dessert which also didn't disappoint. We will definitely be back!

After the theatre we had a light meal which was excellent. The offering on the menu was to taste a number of small dishes for $36. What a buy! Wonderful tastes and fun to share with 3 people, as we were not interested in having quantity - we were after quality and we were so happy to have gone there. Great service, too.

Cichetti is my all-time favorite neighborhood restaurant. I have posted my birthday dinner here for 12 people and brought many a friends here for a fun catch-up dinner. In the summer, they have a beautiful patio area to enjoy a bottle of wine and delicious foods; for the winter, they have an adorable mezzanine level and library that can host groups perfectly.

I would recommend anyone and everyone to come here.

Everything was great, but I strongly disliked our table location. We wanted to sit outdoors, but there were no open tables. So we were placed in a side room which was somewhat closet-like. It was very hot in there and claustrophobia inducing.

I really enjoyed this place. The Pomegranate Muhammara was AMAZING! Sweet spot to order and share plates since there are many delicious things on the menu - including vegetarian options. The octopus was fabulous too! Yum everything we are. I'll be back to try more.

We went there for Valentine's Day 2017, and had a lovely 4 course meal. I am vegetarian and my husband eats fish, but also gluten-free. Both of us had delicious options on their fixed price menu.

The high lights of my vegetarian meal were the Arancini (rice balls) with feta and fennel, the spicy falafel, and the delicious chocolate mousse for dessert. I found the chestnut gnocchi just slightly bland. Maybe more mushrooms would have been nice.

Delicious meal from start to finish. Small plates - be sure to try the stuffed dates. The Brussel sprouts are also a must try. For main meal, I had the Kefta burger and a side of the truffle oil fries - the burger was super juicy and flavorful. And the fries were crispy and yummy.

Our group of six was celebrating a successful fiscal year and the opportunity to have some more personal and historical perspective conversation. We were seated in a small dining room and had the room to ourselves until just before we finished our visit. This was appreciated by all of us. The room had good acoustics and a nice setup of the table. The food was quite good and the wine was reasonably priced. Would go there again.
