Cicchetti by Mr. Beans is a fun and modern take on a classic Italian bistro, aiming to bring the ‘Bacari’ culture to India; by offering a place where friends and family could enjoy a hearty meal over fun conversations in a chic setting.

Taking inspiration from a tradition that dates back its genesis to the 13th Century Wine Bars of Venice, when they added nibbles to the menu to keep the conversation going and hold the crowd longer at the bar. The idea was gradually lost in time but with the evolution of Tapas in Spain, the small courses of Cicchetti sections consisting of cheese boards/breads/jams over house wines and cocktails came back to life again. And that is where the restaurant picked its name. Cicchetti (Shi-ke-tti) is a Venetian term for small plates typically served with a glass of native white wine in traditional ‘bacari’ bars located in the by-lanes of enchanting city of Venice, Italy.

As they say “All good things come in small packages”, Cicchetti by Mr Beans is aimed at giving a gourmet makeover to the Venetian small plates wherein one can also make a full meal by ordering multiple portions that are primarily small servings of typical full-course plates. Usually accompanied by a glass of local wine, colloquially referred as an ‘ombra’, shadow, spritzers & aperol, a Cicchetti acts as a great place for cultural and social bonhomie.
