Its the best italian restaurant in San Francisco. Bar none. There is no place quite like -t Sardinian food is different than typical "red sauce" type dishes. And its not just great to have a change of pace/style, but Lorella and Massimo are the best at what they do. Food, atmosphere and service can't be beat. And the wine list is both outstanding and affordable. 100% worth a visit any time

The food at La Ciccia is always wonderful, and under somewhat trying circumstances, serving tables outside, the hospitality was as warm as usual. It will be wonderful when they are open again as usual. The current challenges for the restaurant, all restaurants to be honest, are considerable. They are doing yeoman’s work to serve us.

This is a neighborhood gem--a low-key, welcoming atmosphere is paired with a unique menu in which everything is delicious. Glad these guys seem to be surviving COVID. The food travels well, but the patio and street dining feel safe and comfortable.

We ordered a variety of traditional Sardinian entrées and appetizers. All pastas were definitely fresh and homemade.
Pluses: Good baby octopus stew appetizer
Good fusilli with sea urchin tomato sauce and grated tuna heart
Good pasta with pork ragu
Cons: Spaghetti with bottarga was just ok
Disappointed with the oven roasted prawns which were cooked in the shell and were hard to dig out
Burrata appetizer was ok but I’ve had better
Very popular place even on a weeknight. Our servers seemed overwhelmed. Not too attentive to our table.
Not sure I’d return.

La Ciccia delivers consistently great food. My friends and I shared the roasted calamari salad, flatbread, and seasonal vegetables for starters, which I followed with with the octopus stew which was perfect while dining outdoors on a cool evening. Our server was excellent and recommended a perfect Sardinian wine to accompany our dinner.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in SF, period!

The spot is at the end of Church at the far end of Noe Valley.

The restaurant is constantly packed and you'll do well to get a reservation here. In fact, I'd imagine it'd be impossible to get a drop in here.

The highlights, of course, were the squid and we also had some risotto which was exquisite. This night an off-menu item was a suckling pig in a delicious sauce.

They really know what they're doing here at this Sardinian restaurant and you can plainly see by all the business they get. It's well deserved!

Very welcome and service. Classic neighborhood restaurant atmosphere, close tables, rather outdated but decent setting. Three dishes out of four absolutely delicious (mushroom pasta, boutargue pasta, branzino) and the other completely missed (floury inedible shrimp for more than half and too much butter sauce, vegetables too salty). Two primi, two secondi, a dessert and a bottle of wine at $ 65, the total bill goes up to $ 212 without service. It is much too expensive compared to the plate and the frame. Too bad because we would have liked to recommend this restaurant.
