Open Cafe: Caffe Ciccio

sake, shochu and sushi


In this era of fast food and uniform “chain” cafeterias, it is refreshing to find that at least one true old-fashioned (traditional) open cafe has braved the trebds through the ages and still welcomes a slow-food clientele who value quality and good service over speed and cheap prices.

Opening its large bay window-doors onto Shichikencho, Ciccio in Shizuoka City is a small haven of tranquility where you can sit, have a drink or meal and enjoy the spectacle outside on your own or in gregarious company (or make new friends!)

Real coffee lovers will be glad to know that more than 20 varieties of their favourite beverage are available along more than 10 international beers and a plethora of liqueurs. For wine lovers, Ciccio offers all what you can drink from 4 varieties at 1,575 yen per person!
At lunch (11:00~14:30) you can choose either of the two sets of the day. As of June 11th, 2007, they offered a doria set or pasta set for 945 yen with salad, homemade bread, and a drink! as for single dishes, paninin (420 yen) and pizza (650 yen) are available.
For dinner (17:30~22:00), salads and antipasti are on but have a talk with the chef and they will tell what they have in the fridge to accomodate your appetite! (great quiches, by the way!)

Of course cakes and ice-creams are on display for the sweet teeth!

  1. My wife and I love this place. Every chance we get to head down to Shizouka for a refill of culture we go here. It’s hard to find a decent sidewalk cafe where we can spend some time people watching over a coffee or a glass of wine.

    Thanks for the post.



  2. It has improved markedly!
    Change of owner, apparently.
    The staff is definitely more attentive and respectful!
    I noticed a foreign lady eating the pasta lunch. It seemed very good value!
    I also noticed that customers are more relaxed.
    It is a really good place to spend a break away from work!
    The wine deal is great, too!
