Welcome to Cichetti! We have now re-opened and are committed to providing the most unique food and dining experience in West Michigan. We offer a variety of food experiences, unique in the area and sure to cause excitement for food and drink lovers everywhere.
Why the name the Cichetti? This particular spelling originates in Venice, a place where we had friends and spent a great deal of time. It means quite simply: small bites of food with wine. Perfect. We have a love of Italian food, and food culture that has made its way into our personal lifestyle and business and we take great pleasure in sharing this with everyone that comes through the door from the relaxed and warm decor to the simplicity and flavor that is Italian food.
We will also provide a total experience for private events. We have held many special nights with family reunions, bridal showers, company events, or even a special 'girls night out'! Let us help you design your own special event!
Chef Jill Hansen
It's all about the food! Chef Jill has lived in Europe for 16 years, as well as 10 years in Upstate New York and 4 years in South Carolina.
