Excellent Sardinian restaurant

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.

First time to have sardinian food - very Italian like and AMAZING! Met two friends here who has been trying to get reservations for a long time, so worth the wait! Tried a couple of dishes, calamari and artichoke salad is a must, although doubt that any dish would be a let down

Never had Sardinian food before, so this was a novelty. It is a restaurant in my neighborhood, so I have eaten there several times. The food is excellently prepared. Unfortunately, it has been "discovered," so it is now among the trendy restaurants to go to. Also unfortunately some people also bring their infants to dinner with them, a rising rend... More

Been there several times. The food compares to best places in New York and Italy. The octopus, langoustine and spicy marinara were just as I remembered. Flew from Ponte Vedra Beach, Fl just to eat here. :) Will be back!!! JC

La Ciccia is my favorite restaurant in San Francisco. Massimiliano's creations are delicious and he always surprise me with new recipes. Reserve in advance (but if you come from Sardinia he always find a table for you)

I live near here but haven't been for a few years. If you're visiting San Francisco getting here from downtown hotels gives you exposure to a couple of SF 'hoods. The J-Church light rail comes above ground for most of the trip and you'll ride up the side of Dolores Park affording great views of downtown (sit on LHS). Restaurant... More

We had the octopus stew for a starter- it was swimming in a slightly spicy marinara sauce that was perfectly seasoned (as was the whole meal). Save some bread for the sauce. We split the pasta botarga and ordered the special: sea bass. We split a salad. The wine list is famous, and famously good- the hard part is deciding... More

Awesome Sardinian items. If you are not familiar with Sardinian cuisine, make sure to ask for guidance, you might miss opportunities for amazing dishes. Among others, excellent tripes and pasta with squid ink and lemon zest. Only downsides: tables tend to be small and close to each other, and they do not carry a license for spirits (which means mirto... More

This small unpretentious restaurant iin Noe Valley specializes in dishes from Sardinia, and you won't be disappointed in what they serve. Everything we had was wonderfully flavorful and expertly prepared. It's wine and beer only, so be prepared. Service is polished and pleasant, and the prices are not outrageous for such a superb meal.
