My husband and I were staying at a hotel near the Airport, and went down the street of different restaurants, and eateries. We decided to give this one a try. We did take out, and I'm glad we did. We ordered a small pizza and some cheesy bread. The pizza was better than the cheesy bread, but overall the entire... More

I was in the area for one night at an Airport Hotel. There are a number of places that deliver to the hotel but Cecilia's had the best looking menu choices. I ordered a medium sized pizza with several toppings. Although they have a wide choice of other pizzas, pastas and other dishes on the menu, I liked the optional... More

We stopped on our way to the airport to fill up our rental car with gas, and found this place by chance.The decor was a little worn but the staff was friendly and gave us good advice for cheaper gas. The pizza was great! We got a medium pepperoni for 3 people and it did the job. The crust was... More

We stayed at a hotel right down the street and were craving pizza so found this on line. When my friend mentioned the name, I heard it as Sicilia and having relatives from there and having had some great meals at my aunts house, I said lets go. When we arrived in the surprisingly quaint downtown Sout San Francisco are... More

We stopped in at this cute little place because it was the closest to our hotel. We were so pleased with the delicious lunch of handmade pasta and salad. The lunch salad was much bigger and of better quality than most restaurants. The next two nights, we ordered dinner from here to our hotel, and were equally pleased. The shrimp... More

The venue itself leaves you wondering why it's not doing worse. The location is small, and get's really crowded when full, which is luckily frequently! The food is pretty good, so I'm not saying it's bad, but they really need to be better about taking reservations and being able to seat people within a reasonable time frame.

There were 8 tables with seating for 28. The place was full. The food was excellent. I had Veal Scalopine with Saffron rice. It was great. My wife had margherita pizza, which was much like we had in Italy. It was nice. I had one of her pieces of pizza, so I can vouch for it. My wife also had... More

Salad was a good size, but needed more dressing than the one packet. WAs overcharged for the two 5" breadsticks, tasty. Minestrone soup was ok. Slice of chocolate mouse cake was a bit small.
