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.

My wife is from Chicago so she is picky about "good pizza". The pizza and other meals we had there were wonderful! Very tasty, big portions, and the service was very friendly. It is a family run business at time very busy and the eating area is small, but the food quality makes up for it!! Loved it, wish we... More

Wow, They delivered to our room very fast and the pizza was delicious. My husband kept saying he wanted more. When in San Francisco again, we will be ordering from them again.

Myself and three colleagues walked over to the restaurant from the Comfort Inn where we were staying overnight. The pasta was fine, the beer was cold, the service friendly and the menu was not expensive. If I have occasion to stay in the area again I will stop in for meal.

We stopped here twice while staying at the Hilton Garden Inn (not far from here). The food was very good and it seemed to be a family run business. Servers were very kind and overall a very good meal for the price. Give it a shot as we were very pleased!
