La Ciccia is a family-owned and run Sardinian restaurant in Noe Valley. We've dined here several times over the years and last night's meal was as spectacular as ever. Both the quality of the food and the attentive staff make this place one of our must-visit places whenever we're in San Francisco. The owners are a delightful couple. Their warm... More

On our recent visit to San Francisco, our daughter had made reservations at this Sardinia restaurant. WARNING--you must make these well in advance, but they will only make them a month in advance of you visit. You need both luck, persistence, and flexibility. The dining experience was worth it. Our group of 4 ordered the seafood soup and baby calamari... More

Although a little far from the hotel I stayed in, going to this restaurant was an amazing experience. Try the sea food and pair it with some Sardinian wine sugested by the owners and you won't regret.

We have visited SF before and are definite foodies. As we ask around about spots we should hit, La Ciccia is mentioned often as the #1 spot. This most recent trip found us just up the J train from La Ciccia so we had to check it out. We lucked out with a reservation the same day (possibly one of... More

Chef Massimo is truly an artist in the kitchen!!!! It is rare to find a Chef so devoted and involved hands-on in the making of every dish that comes out of the kitchen. I have frequently travelled to Rome over the last 40 and have not found Sardinian cuisine as good as La Ciccia in San Francisco. Massimo's adorable wife,... More

This is one of SF's gems. Husband and wife team serve incredible food from Sardinia. Don't miss the octopus stew, the roasted calamari or the risotto with sea urchin. The flavors are truly Italian in their simplicity and focus on flavors. The is truly one of the best Italian restaurants in the city.

Lovely, intimate Sardinian restaurant tucked away in Noe Valley. We went for a birthday dinner and it was every bit the celebration we wanted. Every course was simply outstanding. The service is spot on without being too formal or overbearing. A true gem!
