                                        Great meal and service. Only minor issue is that we would have liked to have seen more wine options that are not as pricey.

                                        No Massimo, no Lorella equals no La Ciccia. They really should change the name of the restaurant now that M&L no longer own nor operate the restaurant. The experience is totally not what it was under their ownership, nor is the service and food. I had read that the wait staff would remain, however it seems they have also departed, which is also unfortunate as previous staff made the whole experience a memorable one. We ordered 3 things to share, 2 specials, (asparagus salad & the whole roasted fish) and the octopus which is a regular on the menu. 1 out of 3 plates were of caliber, and that was the salad. The octopus was either out of a can or overcooked, not good. The "whole" roasted fish wasn't whole roasted, but rather was cut up ahead of time, then the chef picks up two filet.... ours came, one filet was way smaller than the other... not sure whether the chef doesn't care a about plating... but when the item is described as whole roasted, I expect to get filet from 1 fish, not random... we mentioned to our waiter that we didn't care for the octopus, which, under old management, would have been taken off our bill or they would have brought out something else. It was not taken off our bill, nor was there anything said to acknowledge our dissatisfaction. And the best part, mid-way through our meal, I believe it was the chef, comes from the kitchen showing butt crack. This was the last thing I expected to experience from a supposed high-end restaurant. It's really too bad, I was hoping for the best, but with the departure of Lorella & Massimo, La Ciccia is no longer what it was.

                                        Everything brought to the table was excellent. We had white anchovies with citrus salad, semolina gnocchi with pork sugo, bronzino, and chocolate panna cotta. I'll do it again!

                                        Dined at La Ciccia many years ago and absolutely loved it. This time we were a bit disappointed in the quality of the pasta. It didn't have that same 'wow' factor and the flavors were muddled together - nothing stood out. However, the quality and friendliness of the service made up for things. Perhaps the recent change in ownership impacted the kitchen as well. Unsure if we would continue to recommend this place.

                                        It is not the first time at La Ciccia but the first time since the ownership change. We were happy to see that some staples remained and to see new items. The food was great as usual and the experience is always good. The staff is friendly but at certain moments they give an “ I am busy what do you want now” vibe, but it was only from one of the many folks that helped us. We will for sure be back.

                                        It's a nice restaurant but not as great as we remember it being many years ago. Food was fine but most of it didn't have the "wow" factor that we expected. The grilled calamari appetizer and Branzino were both good. The squid ink pasta dish was pretty bland.

                                        My first time to this fabulous establishment, quite what I expected from a smaller size restaurant with friendly staff and busy traffic. Everyone seems to be having a great time and I have facts to proof this by opening 2 bottles of wine. Food was good and delicious. Finally a place off the beaten path!

                                        Best Italian in SF! You got to try the spaghetti bottarga - their signature dish. Anchovies with oranges are also highly recommend. Definitely make sure to get the gelato for desert. Will come back for sure.

                                        An intimate, authentic restaurant that makes you feel like you have been spirited away to Sardinia. We had the calamari for an appetizer, fish special (branzino) and gnochetti for our main courses, and panna cotta for dessert. All were delicious. Highly recommended.

                                        Major food disappointment after anticipating a wonderful meal. Of the ten items we ordered only the octopus merited positive comments. There might be a salt shortage in their kitchen as both lamb entrees were under seasoned and well short of Kokkari standards. Pastas were gummy and lacking flavor. Desserts were equally unremarkable. WAAAAY overpaid for a bottle of 2010 Sardinian red. Service was solid Cute setting. Busy with locals. Understand the ownership is changing which could have effected the quality.

                                        We greatly enjoyed what was likely our last dinner at La Ciccia before Lurella and Massimo turn this gem over to its new owner. It was a bittersweet evening, for we can't help but wonder whether La Ciccia's quality, charm, and intimacy will be preserved. It's reassuring that many of the servers and kitchen staff will remain and that the new owner has purchased the recipes. Of course, we won't know for certain until the "new" La Ciccia is established. As always, the octopus stew and calamari delighted us as starters, as did the seasonal salad of radicchio and asparagus. The event's pasta special, shrimp and salmon with fettuccine in a lobster sauce was good, but would have benefited from a bit more fish/seafood. The branzino was reliably well-prepared. Service was warm, efficient, and gracious. We've been going to La Ciccia since it first opened ~16 years ago. It's a neighborhood treasure and a gem in the crown of SF's outstanding restaurants. Thank you, Lurella and Massimo. May La Ciccia's future be as bright and delicious as its past.

                                        This is a real European eating experience? Italy at it’s finest. The food was freshly prepared from the finest ingredients. Each course was so unique but so Sardinian. I can’t wait to go back.

                                        The food and service were really good. I wish menu was a little easier to read in the dim light - grey on beige with tiny font made it hard.

                                        The food is always outstanding here! The wine list can be intimidating so it's worth a little research before you go. The octopus stew is not to be missed if you are a fan of octopus. The Gnocchetti in ragu is our favorite, but I've never had a bad pasta, and we've tried a few. Their lamb is unexpectedly sliced for you, but tender and seasoned to perfection. The cabbage it comes with is also devine!

                                        the food and service were fantastic. The Calamari appetizer was the best we remember and the fish special wonderful. Service great. We came early and were not rushed at all. By the time we left it was full and difficult to move around all the tables. But we are already talking about going again.

                                        Fantastic food, great ambience but don’t get seated by the kitchen. We were seated by the kitchen unfortunately & then bleach smells from them cleaning was really strong.
