Phenomenal Sardinian restaurant - excellent food, creative Salumi options and ample portions. I thoroughly enjoyed each and every dish. The home made pasta with Botarga (dried fish eggs) was sensational. The braised lamb shank was exquisite and just fell off the bone. The Porchetta salumi plate... read more

I've been coming here for years and the food was always intense and exuberant but this past year I think they're using the same sauce on multiple dishes- and of course I ordered an appetizer and entree with the same dish. It's a trek out to the restaurant so a major disappointment.

There is not a bad dish at this small, out-of-the way Italian, While it is not the largest menu and the tables are a little cramped, the quality and freshness of the ingredients plus the true southern Italian authenticity more than make up for these tiny annoyances. The menu changes often bit try the "black squid ink pasta" if one... More

Was told about this place by a friend, and it was nothing short of amazing. Local couple, originally from Sardinia, and it felt like I was in their kitchen! Great food, great wine, great service. No complaints at all.

Spent a month in San Francisco and this was a stand out restaurant for the care and service they put into everything. Even as someone who's not a foodie type I could appreciate the attention to detail and the sense that they really have a passion for everything they are doing there. Highly recommended.

This is the type of place that is off the beaten path but well worth the journey. The food is excellent and the hostess has always made me feel welcome even when I didn't have a reservation. It's a cozy interior and the servers are knowledgeable about the menu and about food and, of course, hospitality. The size belies the... More

Excellent food and service and a lot of fun--BUT, parking was a nightmare. There's only street parking and the night we were there I dropped off the rest of our party and drove around and around and couldn't find a place to park within 1/2 mile of the restaurant. Finally, I called my son and he got a waitress to... More

Loved the intimate atmosphere in La Ciccia. Our server was great with recommendations-- he suggested a great wine and we ended up getting two dishes from the specials menu as well as the squid ink pasta (which was amazing). We loved it! Be pretty to drop some money, but it is worth it!

LaCiccia is best described as a culinary event. Tucked away in a Noe Valley residential neighborhood, this wonderful restaurant proved to be a great introduction to Sardinian cuisine. Based on the waiter's recommendation we ordered their pasta, fish and lamb signature dishes as "pass around's" for the table which proved to be the way to go. All dishes we well... More

It's a hike from downtown - 20 minutes by taxi - but it was really worth the trip. Small, noisy, tables packed together but vibrant with friendly and efficient service. Pasta courses quite big so best shared if you want a main. Wine list very Sardinian and very good value. Will certainly return.
