Ciccio’s / Water
1015 South Howard Avenue Tampa, FL 33606
There was nothing healthy about this risotto cake with mushroom marsala sauce, but it was oh-so-good. Ciccio’s knows how to make marsala. It was the perfect storm of salty, earthy, sweet, buttery, wine-infused goodness. In my opinion, worth every calorie. Don’t fret, though, they offer myriad lighter options for the healthy-conscious. This night, however, I let my inner fat kid out to play, and she had a great time.
Some may gripe about Ciccio’s being “trendy” — who cares if it is!? Trendy (typically) = Fun, so hipsters, get over yourselves and try this place…preferably on a Thursday night when my fellow blogger, TP’s band, Tone Grenade is playing. Holler.
