I had been to quite a few Italian restaurants in north beach and was disappointed by them all. I am so glad I came here.. I can now say I have had authentic Italian in San Francisco. The service was great. Friendly but not too over the top! Ioved every dish I had. I will tell all my Italian friends about this place

Wow, loved our dinner here so much. There were quite a few standouts in this Sardinian restaurant. And of course the menu changes. But if available, do not miss the squid ink pasta. It was exceptional. Equally amazing was the octopus stew.

The waitstaff was attentive and very helpful. The restaurant small and busy, and can be very noisy. We had 9:30 reservations so as our dinner progressed, the crowd thinned and noise not a problem at all. Oh, the gelato -- BEST EVER. If you like and appreciate excellent food, go to La Ciccia!

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at La Ciccia (The Belly!).
My first visit, my husbands many. What a pleasure! We shared an appetizer special; shared the pasta special; we each had our own entree. It was a perfect combination. La Ciccia is a must visit when in SF.

Food portions are large here. Food is very simply presented but prepared with perfection. Food choices are limited, unlike the extensive wine list. This is not a very comfortable restaurant in terms of furniture or table spacing, and the service is a little bit sporadic. Don't come here for a private conversation or a quick in and out meal. Do come here for a great authentic no fuss Sardinian food and wine experience!
