About Us



From the 30-foot ceiling to the plush custom-designed bar and lounge, Cicada has combined 1920s Art Deco with contemporary design elements to create an extraordinary atmosphere. The European style is further complemented by a sophisticated Northern Italian menu. 15,000 square feet--ideal for weddings, special events, and private parties.



"Desserts are taken very seriously here, making the choices extremely difficult."

"I particularly love the luxury of sitting at tables that are so widely spaced that my table companions can speak quietly and not be heard."
- Norm Chandler Fox


"Oh 'the wood, the Lalique' glass -- 'I want to live here!' gush admirers of this 'civilized' Downtown Italian restaurant housed in the Oviatt Building, a 'dazzling art deco' space with 30-foot 'gold ceilings'; the 'diverse' menu is 'top-drawer' too, though some diners 'mesmerized' by the 'truly incredible' surroundings may find it hard to focus on the food."
