James was born into his chef role. His mother and uncles are 100% Sicilian and culinary masters of Sicilian cuisine. I have never had anything but the most incredible, delicious dining adventure at the Sicilian Café. My addiction is the Salmon Carbonara. Take a perfectly poached salmon filet and nestle it on a bed of fettuccini smothered in a rich,... More

Sicilian Cafe in Chico, California appears on the outside to be a humble old building on the creek. As you enter the restaurant, you are transported to a Tuscan village in Italy. The clean, white tablecloths, the drawings of Italian landscapes and sometimes the melodious sounds of "Volare" draw you in, as do the delectable Italian aromas emanating from the... More

I had 15 minutes before my guests arrived. I ordered a dry merlot. Tony Bennett music played and I was in heaven. I ordered the Chicken Picata in the past and it was delicious. This time I ordered the salmon special over pesto pasta. I did have room for dessert organic vanilla ice cream with amber wine on top. The... More

I have been to this restaurant before and enjoyed my meal. Tonight I had the veal scallopini marsala. It was not good .the veal had no taste and was covered with more of a tomato sauce then a marsala. My fiend had the scallops and enjoyed them. Service was okay..

Recently we dined at the Sicilian Cafe. It was a rainy night and the warmth of the staff and owner immediately took the chill off. The food was a delight especially the minestrone soup! Great anti pasta and bread.

How could I have waited so long to discover this amazing restaurant?! The Sicilian Cafe has been around for a long time, but it wasn't until tonight that we dined there. The food was fantastic. Kudos to James, the chef (who came out and stopped at each table to welcome and thank us for being there), for preparing us a... More

This is a cozy spot for a great Italian dinner. Oder anything with calamari or prawns and you love it. Love the courses in the old school fashion with the anitpasti dish first, followed by warm bread and a great soup or salad. Super good pasta.

This is where we go for special occasions to enjoy fine food and service. A place to take visiting relatives ti impress them. Although some of the of the food is indeed is Sicilian, some of it is Florentine

Wonderful food and service! This is the second time visiting this establishment and the first time was equally incredible. The menu is impressive with an excellent variety and each meal we ordered was exceptional! The service was outstanding and I strongly recommend this restaurant if you love Italian food (and even if you don't because you will!).
