La Ciccia is one of the best restaurants in San Francisco, and there are many from which to pick. The food is Sardinian, the menu is unique and each selection an experience. The Italian owners are warm and welcoming and are always there to ensure your visit is excellent. They have amazing consistency with their staff, which also helps to... More

An amazing authentic cuisine from Sardegna. Unique and a must! The wine list is award winning! The fish is fresh. The chef is creative still honoring the italian cuisine tastes and tradition.

They serve Sardinian food. They only used quality ingredients. We loved their octopus stew, its very yummy and a little bit spicy and their beef lamb shank is perfectly cooked. Reservation in advance is a must.

We shared a calamari salad, then gnochetti, then pork medallions, then a semifreddo. The cooking was excellent, the quality of the ingredients was best in class, and the portions were just enough for two. I'd definitely want to return. The one minor off-note was that the check was brought before I asked for it.

This is one of those typical small restaurants you find in SF. The tables are close together and it can be a bit noisy. They specialize in Sardinian food, which is mainly from the sea. We ordered a good variety of dishes and shared them "family style". They had no problem accommodating us on that. Everything we got was very... More

This is one of those restaurants that you hear a lot about and wonder if it really lives up to the hype -- it does. The food is phenomenal. I've never been Sardinia but after this meal, it's at the top of my list. Octopus stew was amazing and spicy -- as were both pasta dishes we had (the spaghetti... More

Known for their “pulpi” stewed octopus, we also ordered the spaghetti with shaved tuna heart. These are their two premier dishes, which seem to be the things to order, which the restaurant is best known for. With reservations booked up a month in advance, we learned that it may be possible to sit at the counter without a reservation in... More

My daughter took me out for my birthday. The ingredients were all quite fresh and well presented. We shared a braised squid appetizer. Unlike the usually breaded and fried version, this dish was baked and served with a lovely sauce of vinegars and herbs. She had a lamb and veggies that was delightful...the lamb being cooked perfectly. I had a... More

I've been coming here for years and the food was always intense and exuberant but this past year I think they're using the same sauce on multiple dishes- and of course I ordered an appetizer and entree with the same dish. It's a trek out to the restaurant so a major disappointment.
