Description: The cicchetto is originality, the furniture is based on the recovery of wood from the cellar, the staves of the barrels have replaced the normal timber joinery. The atmosphere is simple and understated, the true style of Piedmont.The cicchetto is the real alternative to the restaurant, an establishment that combines the pleasures of the bar to the richness of the enoteca, the search for taste in the selection of food, with dishes that are simple and the best combining local and national winemaking.The cicchetto is selection, wines, cured meats, cheeses, pasta, sauces, meats, jams, spices and salts present in wine are the result of direct experiences of the most important breeders of each sector.

We organised my wife anniversary in february. Perfect Organization, great cocktail (thanks to their homemade Gin agricole...) really fair price for wine bottle. totally unexpected was the excellent quality of food served, much higher compared to a wine bar in Italy. Not too extensive choice, but very well balanced. Great job, great night.

We ended up here late on a Sunday night. We were having trouble finding something open. We walked up to the door and were greeted by the owner Franco. Even though the kitchen had been closed for an hour he invited us in. He got us some bread, his special recipe sausage and cheese and of course some wine. Everything was wonderful. Franco helped us plan our itinerary the next day and even shared a bottle of sparkling wine with us. This family owned business is a special place. I heard this restaurant gets crowded so come early or be patient. It is well worth it.

Had only arrived in Asti a few hours before and found this place on trip advisor. Friendly bar staff with better English than our Italian. Had two glasses of asti, plus a few more red and white along with free antipasti. We bought a bottle to take away as it is also a wine shop. Very pleasurable way to spend a few hours.

After having quite a big lunch, we were looking for something a bit lighter for dinner so we stopped at Il Cicchetto for a drink and a small meal.

Wine list is as good as you would expect in an Enoteca - we didn't really need help choosing, so can't testify as to how helpful the staff would be to explain the different local vintages.

Food was alright but nothing special - the risotto with speck was a bit dry, gnocchi were better.

Based on our experience, I would recommend to stop here for an aperitif before going to have dinner. Nice little terrace just on the street.

Went to this bar for night cap with a local friend. Amazing selection of gins and tonics round the world eg from Peru, Germany and Vietnam. Must stop for Asti night owls.
