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

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

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at La Ciccia (The Belly!). My first visit, my husbands many. What a pleasure! We shared an appetizer special; shared the pasta special; we each had our own entree. It was a perfect combination. La Ciccia is a must visit when in SF.

Food portions are large here. Food is very simply presented but prepared with perfection. Food choices are limited, unlike the extensive wine list. This is not a very comfortable restaurant in terms of furniture or table spacing, and the service is a little bit sporadic. Don't come here for a private conversation or a quick in and out meal. Do... More

The woman owner/hostess was very accommodating. First, I screwed up the automated reservation and when I arrived at 5:30 pm , the reservation was not in their computer. Turns out somehow, it was made for the next month. But she seated us anyway. I Was very thankful for that bc the restaurant is filled later on. We ordered flatbread and... More
