Had been meaning to come here for a long time and boy am I glad I finally did!! Although small and a bit warm, it felt so authentic and cozy from the moment I arrived. Service was a bit sporadic but both our server and his assistant were quite charming when they interacted with us. The dipping oil with the... More

We arrived a few minutes before closing but felt immediately at Home. We just wanted a main course and desserts. We had a delicious dip laced with herbs and garlic to accompany some warmed bread. Main courses were spaghetti and tomato sauce and clams and pasta. Delicious desserts to follow were tiramisu and a lemon ice cream. The coffee was... More

Enjoyed dinner there on a Sunday night. Good was great. Enjoyed watching owners young children ask how our meals were and help out before they set down to their own dinner. Highly recommend.

Trattoria La Siciliana is an outstanding Sicilian dining scene. Cozy and noisy, it's like a big family meal. We opted for the two and two menu: two appetizers, two entrées, each up-sized so it was family meal size. Our appetizer choices: eggplant, caesar salad, both well crafted. Our entrées: anchovy/sardine/garlic sauce over pasta and chicken and artichokes. No room for... More

Came highly recommended -but as a real Sicilian this was just average at best. All dishes - the sauce tasted the same. I order Penne alla Norma- skimpy on the eggplant.

Loved this little find on our journey in Berkeley. Very traditional Sicilian style restaurant with great food. I though prices were very reasonable. Good wine. Really great Tiramisu that shouldn't be missed. Limoncello also homemade and was a good addition. Can't wait to go back on our next trip. Will eat here every time I am in Berkeley for multiple...

Enjoyed a fine meal on a Saturday at 5pm, just after they opened. Family style encouraged, all of our pasta, sauces, salmon, meatballs, broccolini and salad were very good. Service was good considering how busy it was, and we were able to get in and out in 1.5 hours, as we needed to be somewhere. Reservations taken for parties of... More

This was our fourth visit-if you are craving for a taste of Sicily, this is the place to go. The finucchiede never disappoints! Be prepared for a long wait ( doesn't matter if you have reservation or not - still have to wait due to seating challenges in small space), and cash only. Once you are inside, enjoy the food...

Small cute little place with spectacular food. Knew it was good because the it was packed. Friendly, home town feel. I'll definitely return.
