Friendly wait staff and great food. We ordered take out so couldn't vouch for the service. Reasonably priced and a decent selection.

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.

Italian food tastes like home made, price is reasonable, "free" delivery to the Hampton Inn San Francisco Airport. Try the vegetarian lasagna and the saffron rice!

We came to Cecilia's armed with a restaurant.com coupon and upon entering this small restaurant, thought it might of been a good choice. The restaurant was busy, especially with take-out customers ordering pizza. The service was lackluster at best as two young ladies that looked like the daughters of the owner who seemed a bit disinterested while pounding out texts... More

Italian comfort food, I enjoyed the meatballs with spaghetti and Bolognese sauce. Also good eggplant parmesan -- it was thin and not greasy. They deliver.
