Cicheti reflects the riches Italian cuisine with a match of tasty wine to offer. It also offers a distinctive perspective on Italian cuisine, presented in an urbane space where old-world charm is brought into modern design.
A delightful gem of an italian restaurant+bar situated along the streets of kandahar,just 10mins walk from bugis station. A rustic,contemporary designed interior with an open-concept kitchen and full view of the wood-fired oven welcomes you. Especially love the ambiance up at the 2nd level whr it houses the bar. Soothingly dim but at the same time well-lit, makes diners feel relaxed and even romantic.Not to mention the convenience of having a washroom just 20steps away. Food was placed and served relatively fast even when we're seated upstairs,with the friendly waitress, Eunice, checking on us every now and then. They have dishes catered for everyone,whether u're looking for a more substantial meal or just fingerfood. For small bites,I'd recommend the polpette di carne garna,which are meatballs in a divine tomato based sauce,u have to try it! The mussells were fresh and tender,I call it medium-rare mussells. The steak was also done perfectly med-rare,just as I like it. Ciuppino, is another must-eat. It's a really wholesome seafood stew,with all the flavours of the squid,prawns,fish simmered( for god-knows how many hours)and becoming this delectable bowl of hearty soup!not to mention that the seafood in it comes in chunks and are still very much tender. The bismark pizza,which has a runny sunny side up is one of my many favourites,the dough is thin and light but has a crisp edge to it,all because it's handmade/knead by the chefs,flavorsome indeed! To end on a sweet note,highly recommended are the warm salted chocolate cake,with the oozing lava of chocolate and I promise you won't feel "gelat" or too sweet as it's cleverly balanced out with a hint of sea-salt. Polenta almond torta cake would be next on my list,cake is moist and non crumbly,with a slight crunch on the exterior. And if u're looking for something light/non-cake or for the folks,try the herb jelly grappa, it's refreshing and unique with the fusion of herbs instead of just plain ol' jelly and fruits,whatsmore it's served in a pretty glass jar( fitting for photos/instagramming!) But heck,as I'm churning out this review I'm yearning for the oozing lava chocolate cake and meatballs. I'm going back soon for my fix of Cicheti!
Horrible experience. We came as a group and one of our colleague was waiting ages for her food. Then after the rest of us were served and she was left wondering, she decided to check when the waitress and was told her pizza was burnt!!! Then she was told it would come on a few minutes which it didn't. After an hour it finally arrived and apparently it was burnt twice earlier. They just said its a new special so that's why... Why it was burnt? That's the type of lousy service they have here. Don't bother
