Cicchetti Pizza + Pasta Bar

Situated on the southern face of Capri on Via Roma, Cicchetti Pizza + Pasta Bar is an elegant masculine space. Owners Marco De Vincentiis and Luca Giacomin bring years of restaurant ownership, management and impeccable service to Cicchetti, ensuring that you’ll be well looked after.

Cicchetti_PastaPizza and pasta are the Italian dishes we love, but there’s no attempt to allude to casual beach culture here, no fusion of elements, just Italian class in this once fine dining restaurant.

Seating 130 diners, there are plenty of dining options. Whether you sit indoors, at the bar or alfresco at high tables, it’s as relaxed as you could get!

Cicchetti_at barIn the restaurant proper, diners are seated at handmade Australian blackbutt timber tables looking across to the expansive open kitchen. Overhead, 100 rose gold spheres suspended from the ceiling create a warm and inviting atmosphere, while over the marble-fronted bar hangs a magnificent custom-made Australian chandelier. Impeccably stylish yet welcoming, Cicchetti is one of the most elegant casual dining restaurants we’ve seen.

Cicchetti_Pasta 2Highly accessible, Cicchetti’s menu is full of familiar dishes: homemade pasta, authentic pizza, starters and mains which tempt the tastebuds – porcini and fontina arancini, antipasto misto, gnocchi, fresh fish, slow-cooked Byron Bay porchetta, and of course a great range of pizza – just some of the dishes on a menu where vegetarian and gluten free are clearly marked. Daily specials are also a highlight, providing increased interest for gourmet diners.

Cicchetti_PizzaRecently Cicchetti scored a major win for Best Pizza Restaurant in Queensland at The Savour Australia Hostplus Awards for Excellence; a win that puts them in contention for the National Restaurant & Catering Awards to be held in October 2016.

“We knew our pizzas were good because our customers are always telling us they are; and we couldn’t ask for anything better than being recognised as the Best Pizza Restaurant in Queensland,” says Marco. “Since we opened in October last year, our menu has evolved in line with the Gold Coast market and our customers tastes, and our pizzas are now definitely the highlight. With so many styles of pizza available on the market, we pride ourselves on serving authentic Italian style pizzas.”

Cicchetti 13In July 2016, Cicchetti was also awarded one glass in The Gourmet Traveller Wine List of the Year Awards 2016, one of only seven Gold Coast restaurants to gain such an honour. Cicchetti’s extensive wine list includes many gems, elegantly housed in a stunning glass-fronted wine room.

“We’ve worked very hard to evolve the Cicchetti Byron Bay wine list for the Gold Coast and are very proud to be able to offer a wine list boasting over 150 wines perfectly matched to our Italian cuisine,” Luca said.

Cicchetti 9The wine list is arranged by grape variety, including many varietals from the New World such as Pinotage from South Africa, Blanc de Blanc not only from France but also from the Yarra Valley, organic wines and wines sourced from lesser known boutique wineries which present good value quality wines available by the glass, half bottle or bottle.

Cicchetti Pizza BarCicchetti holds great interest for gourmet diners, wine buffs and locals alike. We dine on a Monday night when plate-sized pizzas are $10. Paired with a salad, it’s a great chance for us to try several types of their delicious pizza, as well as a shared entrée.

Cicchetti_Pizza-001It’s one of many specials the restaurant offers: Monday to Wednesday BYO (although the restaurant is fully licensed), Kids eat free Sundays and live music on Friday and Saturday nights. Takeaway is also available and keep an eye out for special wine dinners. Cicchetti should not be missed!

Note: Cicchetti is available for catering. The restaurant lends itself to corporate functions and parties where customers can have exclusive use of the space.
