Cicchetti kitchen and bar

Cicchetti kitchen & bar, located on E. Boston St. in Seattle,  is a great spot for small plates with an authentic Mediterranean flare.  Cicchetti, pronounced (chi-KET-tee), means a small snack or plate of food.  Think Venice, Italy.  It is located behind Serafina, its big sister.  The restaurant/bar layout, air flow, a wood-fired oven, rustic/artistic decor, and a little outdoor seating gives this space a great neighborhood feel.  The service (Tyler) was great and I especially liked the open kitchen to view the hustle and bustle.

Happy hour is served 5 pm to 6:30 Tuesday through Friday.  The kitchen and bar are open late. Cicchetti also has DJ’s that spin a variety of genres on “Vinyl Night”.  Cooking classes are held here as well.  You might want to keep this location in mind for a private event, rehearsal dinner, and more.  Check out their website at http://serafinaseattle.com/cicchetti/ for more info.

We enjoyed a sampling and can recommend the following:

  • Fried Pecorino
  • Pizza Margherita (liked the olive oil drizzled on top)
  • Charred octopus with chickpeas, salsa verde, taggiasca olives & caramelized cauliflower
  • Arancini (Risotto fritters)
  • Spanish style chocolate mousse with Partanna extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, and crostini
  • Prosecco

Make an evening of it or stop in prior to a show!  We are glad we stopped. stayed. enjoyed.
