La Ciccia Ratings and Reviews
This is a reservation I've been trying to get for months and months and it was well worth the wait. This was marvelous, a restaurant not to be missed if visiting SF and one to return to over and over again if lucky enough to live nearby. Fantastic menu, great wine list, ambiance like an Upper East Side gem, perfect service.
I have lived in San Francisco, off and on, since 1962. I have seen wonderful restaurants come and go, sometimes by economic forces, sometimes by complex or simple failure, sometimes by being so flattered by reviews they became careless about which they once did best.
But La Ciccia, where my Italian wife and I first dined over ten years ago when they first opened, has maintained its own rigorous work ethic, its knowledgeable wait staff, its thoughtful calm and personal warmth, its devotion to providing diners with beautiful, almost magical, yet nourishing meals.
Lorella Degan and Massimo Conti continue to provide us with wonderful, thoughtful, Sardinian delights and Italian wines.
La Ciccia is a treat each of us should have at least once in our lifetimes. I am lucky enough to live nearby and dine there often.
La Ciccia never disappoints...
Lorella and Massimiliano continue their 10+ years of sublime excellence. The reputation for culinary expertise and flair is well-deserved. ALWAYS my guilty pleasure is the baby octopus in spicy tomato sauce - tastebud ecstasy! The special of fresh fettuccine simply prepared in a parmesan sauce and topped with black truffle shavings was a delight. And the Capichera 2015 Vermentino Isola di Nuraghiwas a dream. Super wine list.
Lorella & Massimiliano Conti are an AMAZING husband-wife duo! Food was delicious! Truly appreciate that the Chef/owner makes the time to personally come and check-in on every table. Love La Ciccia! Will definitely recommend to everyone I know! Thank you for a wonderful & authentic Sardinian experience!
Delicious, delicious! It’s hard to get a reservation for good reason. It’s reliably delicious- fit for foodies- every time. It gets loud in this tiny place. Most people are dressed casually. Wine list is insane. Every dish we had was perfection. It’s a neighborhood gem. Will go back and highly recommend.
Wonderful. Birthday meal shared with friends and family. Best dishes -- grilled cuttlefish in garlic basil fish sauce, lamb tenderloin grilled in balsamic reduction sauce with leeks, home made Sardinian pasta with sea urchin, tomato cream sauce (no dairy), spaghetti with bottarga. Great wines selections and warm, knowledgeable server who let us enjoy our meal. Will go back soon.
This is one of my favorite places in San Francisco, and I always try to bring my visitors here so they can enjoy some of the best food the city has to offer. From the menu to the daily specials you won't be disappointed by anything. Service is also one of the best in town.
Very friendly host and great attendance on the servicing team! My friend like the sea urchin pasta and felt pretty nice to try a sea urchin with tomato base! For me, I like the way they cook squid and octopus, the red sauce is authentic and I wish they also bring small bowls for people to share the sauce! :) the lamb is cook in perfect pink, soft, tender, and juicy! Spices are in balance! Not much a fan of the green apple sorbet, but other dresserts are good!
This was my second visit, service has been great both times, food out of this world, wine list awesome and appropriate for the cuisine, get your server to recommend the wine, they know the wine list backwards and forwards. Will be taking all my "foodie" out of town guests here!!
This restaurant is simply wonderful. The food fantasic: the highest quality ingredients and expertly prepared. This is authentic cuisine from Sardinia, Italy and you will not find anyplace who does this better. Everything was perfect. The servers were friendly and helpful and were there when they could tell you needed something. The owners are there and warmly greeted their guests to create a home-like atmosphere. We love it and can't wait to come back
A small neighborhood gem serving a frequently changing menu based on the food of Sardinia. Fresh, well-prepared and presented. Professional service with a friendly touch provided by the co-owner wife of the chef. Limited menu (a bit on the expensive side). But, an extensive (also a bit pricey) wine list that even most Italian-wine fans have never heard of, let alone tried. All-in-all, a must-try experience for folks who appreciate diverse, very well executed dining experiences.
La Ciccia is authentic, delicious food from Sardinia-Italian with an emphasis on dishes from the sea. The sea urchin pasta is truly unique. They feature sustainably harvested fish. The wine list is great, featuring Sardinian wines. The staff is knowledgeable about all the dishes, the wines, and pairing. If you can get a table, it is well worth it. Plan far ahead for a special occasion. Ciao!
One of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco. Have been going since they opened. Food always delicious. Lorella is an impeccable host. The combination of warm hospitality, delicious food, and attentive service is great. Always look forward to my return visit.
