Hidden in the middle of all the main chain restaurant, you find this gem. Love the classy decoration and the staff, but the menu is the best thing. I’ve always loved Tapas and I’m a fan of Italian food, so to bring this two together and deliver quality - it’s an easy winner.


Went here for a present theatre meal and it was really lovely. The venue feels luxurious and the food was amazing. We only had 4 plates and a side between 2 and it was more than enough. There recommendation of 5 and 6 I think is too much. We didn't have time for deserts but what went by looked really good. The price wasn't too much for the amount of food we ordered. However prices can escillate quickly.

I would recommend eating here if you are in the vicinity.


Cicchetti is a beautiful restaurant. The menu is classically Italian and focuses on small plates – Italian tapas. The highlight was the carbonara, it was simply divine, the best I’ve ever tried (including the many I’ve sampled all over Italy), the sauce was velvety and the pasta perfectly cooked. I wouldn’t particularly recommend the pizza – the pastas were far superior, however everything we sampled was good. The décor is stunning and service is formal (a bit stuffy). It’s a lovely restaurant to visit for a celebration or occasion. Make sure you book ahead. Around £60 per head including wine. Highly recommend.

Food is quite simply divine, a real favourite, a timeless classic. Beautiful surroundings and the food is a work of art.

This awesome restaurant has real curb appeal. Fortunately once inside it does not disappoint. Friendly staff, delicious food and a real buzz about the place. Last night will be the first of many visits. Loved it !

I wasn't the biggest fan of the decor once past the front bar, which I thought looked a little out-dated and the lighting was too bright for my taste but most importantly the food was fantastic and the service was really excellent - very friendly and efficient.

All the dishes were delicious,and our selection included amazing ravioli, Beef Carppacio and Pumpkin Risotto. The bill came in at £213 for four of us, including a couple of cocktails and bottle of white, mains and desserts.
