You need to make reservations well in advance. Tiny little restaurant. We loved Monterey calamari, octopus stew and grilled sea bass. They have a huge wine list. We tried some Sardinian wines and they were good. Our waiter was great. He let us try 3-4 different wines before choosing the one we liked. Great little neighborhood restaurant.

You probably need to make reservations well in advance, since it's a pretty small place. But the food- excellent. It's the perfect mix of next-door nonna cooking and 'high palate' cuisine. All the essences of Italian/Mediterranean food are there, and yet it's much more. The Sardinian roots of the kitchen give the dishes a special twist (it's not Sicilian, as... More

This small restaurant serves delicious Sicilian cuisine, which is not the typical fare you'll find on Italian menus. I've dined here multiple times and have never had a bad meal. Their specials, esp. the Santa Barbara prawns are outstanding. The waitstaff are friendly and professional which adds to the overall experience of this beloved neighborhood gem.

This restaurant was recommended by a local resident. It was a special, intimate dining experience. Lorella has never met a stanger and the staff were friendly and helpful, and the food was as special as suggested. If you want real Sardinia Italian, this is the place. Our daughter said the fish stew was exquisite.

We arrived very late for our reservation. Our table had, understandably, been given away. Lorella seated us at the bar and make certain that we had a fabulous dinner. The food was outstanding as was the service. La Ciccia will be top of our list when we return to San Francisco. Thank you Lorella for your great hospitality!

We live in the Bay Area and La Ciccia is one of our favorite restaurants in San Francisco. They do a beautiful delicate calamari just right. Their spaghetti with bottarga is not to be missed. Lorella will make you feel so at home whether she knows you or it's your first visit. The food is local and sustainable. The staff... More

I had heard of the Octopus Stew at La Ciccia and decided that I had to try it out. And, not only was it worth the trip, but the rest of the meal was incredible. La Ciccia is right on the Muni J line, at the Church & 30th stop, easy to get to and find. Our server was friendly,... More

I had been to quite a few Italian restaurants in north beach and was disappointed by them all. I am so glad I came here.. I can now say I have had authentic Italian in San Francisco. The service was great. Friendly but not too over the top! Ioved every dish I had. I will tell all my Italian friends... More

Wow, loved our dinner here so much. There were quite a few standouts in this Sardinian restaurant. And of course the menu changes. But if available, do not miss the squid ink pasta. It was exceptional. Equally amazing was the octopus stew. The waitstaff was attentive and very helpful. The restaurant small and busy, and can be very noisy. We... More
