Very Authentic Italian

This is a cozy spot for a great Italian dinner. Oder anything with calamari or prawns and you love it. Love the courses in the old school fashion with the anitpasti dish first, followed by warm bread and a great soup or salad. Super good pasta.

This is where we go for special occasions to enjoy fine food and service. A place to take visiting relatives ti impress them. Although some of the of the food is indeed is Sicilian, some of it is Florentine

Wonderful food and service! This is the second time visiting this establishment and the first time was equally incredible. The menu is impressive with an excellent variety and each meal we ordered was exceptional! The service was outstanding and I strongly recommend this restaurant if you love Italian food (and even if you don't because you will!).

When to the Sicilian cafe with a bunch of beekeeper friends while visiting Chico. The food was amazing very tasty and well prepared. Everyone in our party of 8 ordered something different from the menu and everyone said their food was excellent. The wait staff was efficient and well mannered and made sure that our water glasses were filled always.... More

I LOVE sicilian Cafe. All gluten free options. The picatta is the best in the world potentially. Love the Sicilian salad as well. I will admit I've had a few bad experiences there ( service slow / food too slow / not everyone served on time ) but outside of a few snafu's the quality of the food and friendless... More

The Sicilian Cafe is one of the best restaurants in Chico. Everything on the menu is great. The wine selection is one of the best in Chico as well. My favorite is the Chicken Piccata.

My family has been here many times, but this year my office chose to have our Christmas party here and it was great! We had a group of 13 and were seated in the main dining room. It was very busy, but the staff was quite attentive. We had calamari appetizers to start, my favorite, and everyone loved it. We... More

I have never eaten at Sicilian cafe before though I have been told by many that it is a favorite of theirs. The four of us celebrating my birthday certainly do wonder what went wrong tonight as our food was quite below the standards we had been expecting from such a well recommend restaurant. The caliber of food was definitely... More

From the romantic music playing in the background to the quiet romantic restaurant topped off with excellent excellent food we highly recommend the Sicilian Cafe. We like the relaxing intimacy of sitting inside however there is also a patio area that is more casual. No matter where you sit James and his staff always present great service and an excellent...

We were traveling through Chico and ate at this fine restaurant. I had the cannelloni and my partner had the seafood manicotti. Both were excellent, although the manicotti produced some plate envy. They have a very good wine list, and we enjoyed a sangiovese for under $25. They were open on Monday (most Chico restaurants seem to be closed Sun-Wed).... More
