Cicchetti Menu

Cicchetti, is traditionally a selection of snacks and small plates served in a “Bacari” in Venice.
Today cicchetti is served throughout Italy and beyond. An Italian take on tapas.
The food is simple and humble, created to share for a sociable time.
We suggest two or three dishes to share … to start with anyway!
