    The host always seems to be snooty, and the service rushed - but you’ll continue to come back because the food is literally incredible. Rich in creams and carbs there’s not much you will go wrong with on the menu. The seasonal pizzas are always the star of the show. Also don’t sleep on their extensive selection of Italian wines.

    This was our first time at Che Fico Alimentari and boy was it a treat! We really enjoyed the food and enjoyed watching it being prepared while sitting at the counter. This place is known for their pasta and pizza but we had the suckling pork and lamb. The portions were big and satisfying and the price point was reasonable for the portions. We also enjoyed the risotto balls and the warm focaccia. The decor was modern yet a mixture of old Italian restaurant decor. They keep it dark and cozy. Great place for a date. The waite staff was friendly and knowledgeable and totally no overbearing. Great experience! We will be back soon to try the pasta, pizza, and the octopus starter.

    I love this place but the dishes were staggered improperly as we waited a long time between the first course and the second and then the third showed up at the same time as the second. This was after being told to order everything at once so the kitchen could time it right. Otherwise, I was very happy with the service, the food and the wine. Staff was friendly and knowledgable, a little pricey but what isn't these days?

    We had a lovely dinner at Che Fico. We ordered the burrata and prosciutto appetizer, the boar pappardelle, a pizza with olives and anchovies, asparagus, and a rhubarb crostada for the 4 of us. The food was very high quality and tasted like one would get in Italy - silky burrata, tender boar with the pappardelle, and delicious crust on the pizza. The asparagus were fat and tasty. The food came out quickly , was the right temperature, and delicious. Our server was friendly and professional. Our reservation was for 7:15 and they seated us right away. We were out the door by 8:45. The price was a bit high, but it was a special occasion for us so it was fine. (Like other diners, we found the extra 10% surcharge is a bit annoying)

    The "10% Dining In Charge" forced on customers is bogus. If it "is representative of the true cost of dining in our space," then it should be incorporated in the cost of the meal, namely the price of the dishes on the menu. And if it is to "use the best local products" it also should be reflected in the prices on the menu. This is a sneaky way to charge customers an extra fee. Pay honest wages and benefits and offer fresh quality food -- then set your prices accordingly. I rather pay $28 dollars for a pasta as listed on the menu, than seeing it listed for $25 and then be charged an extra 10% after the meal. Having a small footnote explaining this ridiculous surcharge on the menu is also no true disclosure (I did not see it, nor do I know if it is actually there). But thanks for alerting me to such scams. I will be more attentive in the future and not dine in restaurants that do not post honest prices (high or low).

    Outstanding Italian food, served family style in a very cool/funky setting. Highlights include one of the best wild boar pastas we have tasted (and we order it a lot, including in Italy). The ham and arugula pizza was exceptional with a flat, yet light, Palermo-style crust and the lamb with polenta was rich, moist with almost a blackened exterior. Friendly and professional service with really comfortable well spaced seating. Can't wait to return...if only reservations were easier to come by. :-)

    I went for my birthday and it was an underwhelming experience unfortunately. The food came at different times (They warn you about that in advance but not a fan), -and it wasn’t that good. We ordered cacio e pepe and the margherita pizza, not that complicated. They also knew it was my birthday and didn’t have any special gesture. Overrated in our opinion.

    Do not eat outside if it's cold. I called ahead because the forecast was on the chilly side and we were to be seated outside. I was told that the heaters do a great job and that we would be cozy. We all had winter coats on and were freezing, the heaters did not keep us warm and of course the food gets cold very quickly. It was unfortunate the food is great but for that price don't eat outside unless it's a particularly nice day in the city. We took out friends from out of town, luckily everyone made the best of it but spending over $100 per person for that experience was very disappointing.

    You get a 90min reservation, sadly the staff seems to think that it’s at their discretion so at an hour and 10mins we were asked to finish our wine by the window because the next table had checked in. As we paid our bill (5mins max) the manager came back and asked us to move from our table AGAIN…..we still had 10-12 mins left on our table reservation, incredibly rude and unwelcoming.

    As an Italian, when I read very positive reviews about this restaurant and since most of the so called Italian restaurant in SF are not authentic I just wanted to give it a try and see it actually was worth the hype. This place is definitely original and reminds me of my country. Great flavors, big portions, traditional Italian products. You can also buy products from the store inside the restaurant. Obviously it’s a bit pricey but that’s because they import products directly from Italy, so definitely worth it and I’ll surely come back!
