Coming from the East Bay we didn’t dress appropriately and we were a little cold. Bare in mind it has been 102 degrees where we live, so I wasn’t prepared for cold and wind at 12noon sitting outside.
We were seated in a booth, so it wasn’t miserable and my husband went back to the car for extra clothing. My kids loved the change of temperature.

The food was good, but nothing special. I’ve had better Italian food in the Boston region and paid a lot less. Dinner for two cost $160, including the tip. If a restaurant chargers the much, it has to offer something that justifies the cost. Che Fico Alimentari did not deliver.

This is a fantastic restaurant. It's fantastic because every dish I've had at every visit has been interesting and tasty. I went with a few friends yesterday and had a great evening - we started with the mozzarella and early girl tomatoes, ciabatta, and little gem salad, followed by the spinach lasagna, eggplant parmesan, polenta, roasted potatoes, and half chicken. Our favorites were the spinach lasagna, polenta, and chicken. Also the early girl tomatoes were dehydrated and totally bursting with flavor - such a great way to serve them. Dessert was also excellent - we had the tiramisu and budino with salted caramel and hazelnuts. Although it was not exactly cheap, the price was about what you can expect for dinner in San Francisco, yet the meal was a very high quality that only certain restaurants in the city are able to achieve. I will happily return and know I can expect a truly delicious meal.

Loved everything about it - we sat outside this time. Food is exquisite! Just go and enjoy. It's $ well spent. They treat their employees well, pay their food suppliers what they're supposed to, and don't cut corners. This is the kind of place where you want to support the high end eating experience:)

Too expensive and mediocre food. To sit inside it was an additional 10% to sit inside. Lasagna was horrible. Wine must outrageous. Sad…

As always, the food and service from the Che Fico family was fantastic. The breakfast sandwich is second to none.

My girlfriend’s mom mentioned that the sweetness of the jam on an otherwise savory breakfast sandwich reminded her of the obviously inferior McGriddles sandwich.

But this is no fast food sando. It takes the sweet and savory flavors to a whole ‘nother level with only the finest ingredients.

Had a great experience coming here with a friend from out of town! The food was really fantastic, but the service is what I’ll absolutely be coming back for. Our waiter led us in the right direction for ordering, and even recommended some fun places for us to check out after we finished dinner. I look forward to my next dinner here!

I love it when I have my first bite of food and I close my eyes and say “wow”!!! That doesn’t happen very often. So my husband and I shared one item in each category on the menu. Each bite was outstanding. The server was attentive and friendly and we were even were treated to a glass of champagne to celebrate our anniversary. Would definitely go back for more delicious bites.

We had to wait even though we had reservations which I understand. Food was on the salty side. The best dish was the chicken. Service and food were ok. We are glad we got to try this restaurant but we won’t be rushing to come back.

Every time I come to Che Fico is a special experience. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable and attentive, the food is phenomenal, and their outdoor parklet has heat lamps and protected us from the cold wind!

It was the first time in ages that my husband & I had eaten AT a restaurant, and the Che Fico Alimentari parklet felt safe during COVID and was pleasantly warm from the heat lamp. Our server was very professional & friendly. Our meals were as delicious as we expected of Che Fico, and my sparkling Lambrusco made me feel like I was back in Emilia-Romagna. We look forward to returning soon!

This is a more approachable, casual version of the upstairs Che Fico and was perfect for bringing my visiting in laws to dinner. The food was excellent and the server was super personable and managed to be conversant on both historical European aristocracy (as discussion with my father in law) and foodie topics (talking with my husband) and was a delightful guide for the evening. Also, I left my entire purse at the table and they rescued it and returned it to me unharmed after I had already left. Everything was great!

We really enjoyed our dinner at Che Fico. The food was delicious, great focus on flavors and the wines offered by the glass were interesting/different as well as yummy. The staff were super friendly and kind and bought us a free side of asparagus when we had to wait >20 minutes for our table.

Food was great, service was great. Would not do the Alimentari again. The ambiance wasn't what we were hoping for. Reserve for the main restaurant if you're going to pay those prices and have a surprise 10% restaurant fee tacked on.

Amazing meal, amazing service.

First time in 14+ months to have a paper menu - feels so good! We’re back! No more QR codes please.

Had and recommend the rigatoni, suppli, and fava pizza. Our server had excellent wine recommendations (Grifalco aglianico + cardamaro).

Seated outdoors; was quite windy and chilly at times. Wish I’d layered up with another coat.

If you’re looking for the old Che, awesome drinks and menu especially the pizza, this isn’t it. Beer, wine only plus the pizza has changed drastically. I’ll be seeing you Fico but not anytime soon. Still, cool ambiance (not upstairs anymore) and love supporting the local restaurant scene.

We had to wait a long time although we had a reservation. This resulted in finishing dinner super late (10pm) and we felt a bit bad cause we were the last guests. Other than that the service and food was excellent as usual, the pasta is probably one of the best you can try in San Francisco.
