Came all the way down from Seattle to enjoy my birthday dinner at my favorite restaurant
We had a wonderful evening! Parking is challenging but we had allowed extra time to park, so no issues.
We were graciously welcomed and invited to wait for a more comfortable table or the one that was ready. The entire stars were so hospitable and friendly; very professional yet not stuffy.
We wanted to taste several dishes-extraordinary but simple salad with pickled onions, followed by a slightly spicy pasta with pork ragu. We then enjoyed a fabulous seafood stew with frefola pasta. We took half the pasta, chard and stew home to enjoy last night. We finished with a gorgeous baked sheeps milk ricotta dessert. Every course was excellent. We live a distance or would eat there frequently. We will go back. Highly recommended.
As always, La Ciccia doesn’t disappoint in terms of food or ambiance. A lovely place. Highly recommend.
Absolutely fantastic. Each dish was prepared exquisitely and the tastes were outstanding
Been on our to-do list for years and finally got a reservation.
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.
Simply perfect. Thank you very much for the wonderful night.
Always great food!! The hostess/manger was amazing, she took good care of us, especially the entree descriptions.
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.
