Authentic Neopolitian pizza

For photos, please hit up http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.sg/2014/10/cicheti.html

The pizzas at Cicheti are done Neapolitan-style; they're distinctively thicker and consequently chewier than the typical thin-crust pizzas we're so used to. An absolute nightmare for dieters but heaven for carb-lovers.

Seating at the tiny shop-house space is extremely limited so it's best to secure reservations, or be prepared to be turned away. Service was excellent though, attentive and friendly. Our water glasses were always kept brimming to the full.

We had:

1) Gamberi Grassi ($13): a quartet of fat juicy prawns grilled with smoked butter, and sided by a crusty baguette toast for mopping up every last bit of the luscious butter. 
 
2) Pizza Carbonara ($23) topped with bacon, fior de latte cheese, cream, parmesan, onions, black peppercorns and a sunny side up egg was sumptuous. We especially loved smearing the runny egg all over the pizza.  
 
3) Pizza Procuitto e Rucola ($25): burnished with melted fior de latte, parma ham, arugula and showered with grated grana cheese was just lovely, with the pungent saltiness of the parma ham ribbons contrasted with the peppery bitterness of the arugula gree

Great Food in a Cozy Setting

Cicheti has arguably the best home cooked Italian food in Singapore. The ingredients are really fresh and cooked to perfection. We had all the seafood offerings -- Calamari, fat prawns, salt baked sea bass, vongole, but the star dish was the Ciopino. This seafood broth was creamy but light with a fresh and delicate flavour. As for dessert, we loved the strawberry shortcake which was on the specials board and the simple polenta cake is worth a try.

Fantastic Pizzas and Dessert!

Came here for lunch with a friend who lives in the neighborhood. I had been craving wood oven pizza and she said recommended Cicheti. We ordered 2 pizzas - Bismark and Carbonara. The former is a favorite of other reviewers and the latter was recommended by the waitress. The Carbonara totally blew us away. We absolutely loved the caramelized onions that formed part of the topping and we soacked up all the egg yolk with our leftover crust. Perfection! We were sad that the pizzas got cold after awhile. 

We shared the salted chocolate cake for dessert. Fantastic choice!! I am a big fan of molten lava cakes in general and this one did not disappoint. The portion is quite big - perfect for 2 ladies to share. The melted chocolate oozed out once we dug in. There was just the right amount of salt added to boost the flavor, and the generous scoop of vanilla gelato accompanied with crumbles complemented it perfectly. Heaven in a mouthful! 

Only gripe is that the kitchen is small so once the place hits capacity service can potentially get slow. Hopefully they have more help for peak hours.

Great Night Out

Sometimes we find a place where everthing clicks to make the evening really special. This is what happened at Cicheti.  
The menu didnt look very big but what we ordered was delicious. Fat prawns swimming in a rich sauce of olive oil herbs and garlic. Juicy meatballs and succulent calamari.
The pizza (bismark and carbonara) was done to perfection--or rather, imperfection - - with areas of rich toppings amidst slightly charred dough. Just like its done in Italy. 
The four of us shared a TBone and salt baked sea bass and pear salad.  The meat was Juicy and done just right.  Great ambience. The only serve Peroni beer. Desserts were great too - - choc salt cake and creme brulee a must. 
We highly recommend this wonderful place but reservations advised.
