"La nostra casa è piccola ma c’è tutto quello che ci serve."

What would be the meaning of "ci" in the sentence above? Is it a "verbo pronominale"? In the dictionary I found the meaning to be "essere cliente", e.g. "per il formaggio ci serviamo da Bianchi", but this meaning does not seem to fit here.

    In this case “ci” is a pronoun with the meaning of “a noi”.

No, it's simply the object form (indirect in this case) of "noi", just like you'd have "la mia casa è piccola ma c'è tutto quello che mi serve" in the singular.
