    This was a dining experiment that worked!! The restaurant venue was simple and located in an area my wife and I do not usually visit. The goal was to try urchin. Ciccia serves Italian cuisine. The waiter was very helpful as the dishes were unfamiliar. However the food was excellent, very tasty and plentiful servings. The urchin as incorporated into a marvelous sauce served over pasta which absorbed the flavor and my wife's dish was excellent also. All in all, this was a very pleasant and surprising experience. Note that according to the internet, the restaurant recently changed hands. My comment is that the new management and staff have a winner here.

    Just not the same since the sale. Service was really lackng and the food was uninspired. When we were first seated (after being asked whether we would sit outside instead), one of the two tables they pushed together was unstable. The woman who seated us was bothered by this fact and commented that it was fine until "you moved it." Set the tone for the whole evening. The food used to be exciting here. It had life. Based on this experience it's just some standard Italian restaurant run by people who don't seem to care. I would not go again.

    Everything was perfect. There are few meals where I don't find something to criticize but everything was uniformly great. We started with Burrata with arugula in a truffle oil vinaigrette, prosciutto and their flatbread; great way to start a meal. Wine list is great and found an excellent bottle. Pasta courses were uniformly tasty, fresh and soulful. The ricotta honey and citrus dessert was a light, refreshing way to end the meal. Service was attentive and had great suggestions.

    La Ciccia needs to move. They serve consistently wonderful food and wine. Don’t go on a rainy night. There is no space to wait for seating and customers wait for their tables around a makeshift bar about 18 inches from you. You’re also reluctantly part of your neighbors conversation at a similar distance. There is a certain charm to a neighborhood restaurant serving world class food; the ambiance now really hurts the experience. The servers are constantly moving around waiting customers increasing the congestion. I don’t know the restaurant business. I think La Ciccia should be highly profitable. The prices are high and reflect expensive ingredients; it’s worth it for the food, but not for the miserable ambiance. It’s time to move

    The Octopus in spicy tomato sauce , the branzino and the potato gnocchi were all outstanding. Couple that with superb service and a well thought out and reasonably priced wine list , you have the makings of a wonderful dining experience.

    I have used Open Table for nearly 20 years, and of course I am VIP. I made reservations 3 weeks in advance at La Ciccia, our first time to visit there since the pandemic hit and since the change of ownership. I have a hearing disability so I noted on my reservation request that I need a table not in the center of the room, and that it was a celebrations for our 41st wedding anniversary. We arrived 5 minutes early to be shown a table in the very center of the very noisy room. After a little conversation with my wife we were shown to an outside patio, which, though quiet was cold and very sparsely and poorly decorated. The service was well-intention-ed but amateurish. The hostess came by and I explained that we wanted this restaurant to succeed, because the food was very good, but that the experience was sadly lacking. Yes, the food is good still, but will that be enough. Maybe not.

    The kitchen seems to use the same spicy sauce for everything. Definitely not authentic Sardinian recipes anymore. And prices have soared. While the place has always been too tight for the many tables they squeeze in, the original kitchen was a fresh injection of authenticity in the city and compensated for the spatial limitations. Not anymore.

    Four of us shared Sardinian flat bread and two appetizers - roasted calamari& arugula w anchovy dressing. Needed the bread you served with it. Thanks for the extra basket. Then shared two pastas - the spaghetti with olive oil garlic and fish roe and special fettuccine and Dungeness crab. Finished with lamb - all delicious. The Italian wine list Was great but we only had one bottle - an alto adige white. We were too full for dessert.

    We've been coming here for the past 12 years. There was a recent change of owners and while I'll miss the past co-owners, the new owner is amazing (former customer) and keeps the same great food and atmosphere. One of the best places in the city.

    La Ciccia is a quaint paradise tucked away in Noe Valley of the stars. Great food, service and buzz. We enjoyed flat bread, octopus stew, pasta specials and brought home the ricotta dessert for late night fun. Daniel our waiter who traveled to Sardinia was an excellent guide, guru and gourmet menu mentor and master of ceremonies. 5 stars.

    When it opened it was excellent and an introduction to a new cuisine. It has changed hands and the menu is limited and one of the specials a disaster. the wine list is very overpriced. The neighborhood lacks options and on another day the food may be better.The service was good, tables very close,

    Was my mom birthday and we expected something better than was. I thought the food there is excellent but my boyfriend had a lamb meat cold, he asked to get warm and my mom past wasn’t good for my taste. I ordered prawns and was good but come with shells if you understand me. I got disappointed a little because everyone told me only good things about this restaurant, unfortunately I didn’t have a good experience.

    We ordered roasted calamari on mixed greens and it was really good, calamari cooked just right, and the greens was enough to not have to order a salad. Then we got the fusilli sea urchin tomato cured tuna, which tasted really good, but to be honest we couldn't really tell there was sea urchin or tuna in it. But maybe the subtle flavor was what made it tasty. The portion was a tad small. We also got the prawns in basil oil which was very good.
