We went early, around 5ish. We were the first customers of the day I think. Service was excellent. Enjoyed a very pleasant almost 2 hour meal. House red wine was very good. $18 for a half litre. Good portion size and everything tasted good. It's rare I go to a place that has 10-12 items on the menu that I... More

Despite horrible weather, we made our way down to Preston St for our New Year's Eve dinner at Ciccio. There were 8 of us and we had a small room to ourselves with a bay window view of the Christmas tree outside. Very lovely and festive. Dinner was extremely delicious, service from Jill was delightful with her wry sense of... More

I have been coming here for years for date night. We love the food, the best veal gorgonzola, veal pizzaiola and the staff is simply amazing, always friendly and happy to greet you. Abdul in the kitchen creates his cuisine with love. The deck is also wonderful in the summer months.

It was the Saturday night just before Christmas and the snow was gently falling outside the window while we sat in a cozy round booth and ate delicious food. I rarely eat pasta but I thought I would try the pescatore version which was yummy and all my girlfriends ordered their various dishes and were very happy. We drank wine... More

We were visiting Ottawa and checked out Preston Street for some good Italian lunch and boy did we get it! The service was great as well. They serve you bread and a yummy sun dried tomato oil dip to start. We each had a caesar salad and honestly it was one of the best ones I've had in my life,... More

Visited with friends on Friday night. We were warmly greeted and the server brought us to a lovely table right by the window. She was friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu and really helpful with her recommendations. Right after we ordered, she brought us some fresh bread which was nice and warm and a mixture of olive oil, sundried... More

Ciccio Ristorante is in the heart of Preston Street, where many Italian restaurants are situated. We are in the Italian community! We do not go there often enough, not often enough. Parking is normally fairly easy to find and the dining room and food are just excellent. Depending on how we feel, we select items on the menu. This has... More

Good service, good food!. I recommend this Restaurant to anyone who love Italian food and a nice restaurant. Here is Why: Went there with my wife, had a reservation to dine outside on the covered patio.

We stopped in Ciccio Caffe after a Pokemon hunt around Dow's Lake - and we had an excellent dinner. The service was friendly, prompt and took our order right away. Our son loved the calamari and pasta. The veal was served with lots of steamed veggies. It is worth the visit.

We had a very positive experience at Ciccio's in the Little Italy section of Ottawa. We were greeted warmly upon our arrival and we chose a table on the patio.
