La Ciccia never fails to satisfy on all counts. Lorella always welcomes everyone as an honored guest (the first time) or a family member (every time after the first!). Massimiliano manages to make wonderful authentic Sardinian dishes with the freshest ingredients and a postage stamp sized kitchen. And the staff is a happy bunch - especially Petra. It is just...

Four of us ate here for dinner and there were three highlights: the Sardinian Flat Bread, the Octopus in a spicy red sauce and the artisan gelato. I would definitely order these three things if you eat here. The restaurant is small and run by a couple I believe. They are very "hands on", from cheerfully taking our reservation to... More

This place is a real find, cute neighborhood place, quiet so you can have a conversation, friendly personal service. But best of all were the perfect dishes served. Everything delicious, perfectly prepared. Best of all was the daily fish special. Beware, prices are high, but that's the story in San Francisco these days.

I had been waiting patiently for the owners of the restaurant to return from their annual holiday after reading several great reviews. I arrived at 6pm and was seated at a quiet table while I waited for my date. This table is one of the few that are not ganged together. Make your reservation early to get one of these... More

The location is in a very nice neighborhood and the outside is unassuming. As you enter, you realize it's not particularly large, yet they manage to fit relatively comfortably about 15 tables. By 6:30, it was packed. The waiter is bona fide Italian and the menu is selective and authentic. They provide the titles of dishes in Italian, with English... 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.
