excellent food, service, safety protocols
Fabulous service. Grateful for the attention to detail and safety precautions.
the staff at che fico is always sooo lovely. the food was delish - the suppli just can't be missed here! they made us feel super special for our anniversary which i appreciated. also, noticed they gave a homeless man food which i just thought was so kind. the set up for covid is super safe and concious - the two things to note if you go are: the divis traffic is loud, but whatever - you're in a city and the food is great! the other thing is you have to get up and order your food, i think it makes sense because of covid/less interaction time maybe with the server and it allows them to keep things moving along. but it just would be good to know that if you're expecting to be able to sit and have someone come to your table to take your order. also their pizzas are MUCH bigger than they used to be! bavette steak, foccacia and lasagna were all amazing. overall, lovely experience - i believe the person who helped us was kyle, he was a delight. appreciate this place and am grateful we got to celebrate here!
Che Fico Alimentari has a great outdoor setup! I had the polenta and my friend had the smashed avocado with a side of scrambled eggs. We were both thrilled with the quality and flavor of the food, and were appreciative of the sensible socially-distant service from the staff. Can’t wait to go back again, hopefully soon — and eventually indoors.
Best Covid dining experience so far. Impressed with the safety measures that the restaurant instituted to protect the workers. Excellent food—everything came out piping hot and delicious!
I had a great time with my family. Our table was not ready at the time of our reservation, but it’s to be expected during Covid. We were able to get a cocktail or glass of wine while we waited which was nice. We enjoyed the park let and heat lamp. More importantly, the food was incredible. Very well priced, good portions and very delicious!!!
I will definitely be back and Tel others to come here.
I can’t eat comfortably so close to the street. I felt like the cars were about to run me over. Terrible. So sorry for the bad review. Love the restaurant and company. But the street destroyed me.
Great experience safe place to eat with friends thanks
We felt super safe in our little booth. It was heated and spacious. Highly recommend!
great food and service in this outdoor setting...fantastic... We'll be back
Amazing food and such a friendly and accommodating teams. Logistically prepared at hosting during Covid times. Will definitely come back.
It was too windy and the heat lamps could be stronger. Great food and service
Delicious food. Lots of Covid Outdoor space. Great distancing protocols, friendly staff.
Service was good, although pizza took a long time to come, they were aware of the situation!
Overall, it did not meet my expectations, I realize that the experience has changed because of all the COVID restrictions put in place.
I will give it another try.
We didn’t realize just how much we needed an order of suppli in our lives. Absolutely everything in one perfectly crispy and non-greasy bite. When they’re piping hot, it’s hard to get much better than this.
The butternut squash pizza and rigatoni were also excellent (and the new format for pizza is extremely generous, definitely made for lunch today as well. Thanks for a great night team!
Our friends have raved about Che Fico and it did not disappoint. The salads, polenta, and pasta were something to write home about, as well as the renowned pizza. The take on Italian food is inventive and indeed, joyous. Just as the namesake. We also loved the dessert we ordered, and we're tough customers when it comes to budinos. Great all-around place for a great dinner out with my discriminating gourmet husband, my son, my daughter, and me!
Amazing service, food, parklet, care and overall experience. Definitely recommend visiting and enjoying all they have to offer.
Love the experience, would go more often if there were tables available
The outdoor experience isn’t ideal but these folks are doing their very best.
Omg, the food here is insane!!!! Also the service is on point. Incredibly accommodating. They were able to get us in last minute for my dad’s birthday dinner (on a busy Saturday night) and even modify the ressie with grace and kindness. We will be back for sure!!!
Che Fico has outdoor, socially-distanced dining down to a science. Thank you to that entire team for taking this seriously! I felt safe the entire time (unlike some of the other outdoor options in SF...) in my self-contained booth with a heating lamp. Servers do a great job of keeping a safe distance. Food was outstanding as usual- we had the suppli, polenta, bavette steak, cacio e pepe and mascarpone cheesecake.
One of my favorites in the city. Highly recommend!
Great setting with plenty of space. Liked how they do the multiple tables with one being a serving table
Nowhere near as good as Che Fico. The suppli are fabulous, but the rigatoni amatriciana (large chewy pieces of guanciale in a generically spicy tomato sauce) and pineapple pizza (needed meat, better/less cheese, and did not benefit from the chili), left a lot to be desired.
The staff has adapted so well to the new rules during Covid and still provided amazing service and high quality of food. Made for a memorable meal out to one of our favorite restaurants.
Based on 1 dinner, the food was carefully prepared and above average. The suppli were perfectly fried and thoughtfully presented/garnished. The tomato sauce incorporated into the rice was somewhat over concentrated and tasted like tomato paste. It lacked a fresh taste. The polenta was rich and creamy, but the vegetables served with it were undercooked/woody. Likewise, although the steak was perfectly cooked, the accompanying greens were ridiculously undercooked. Cocktails were slightly on the sweet side overall. The wines by the glass were well chosen and were a better option. Service on disposable paper plates and distanced was not as unpleasant as I expected. However, the pricing is over the top. This is not the value I expected for this price point....however, maybe we all need to readjust our pricing expectations due to the pandemic.
Food was cold when served.
Amazing as usual even outdoor. We crave Che Fico! We missed them soo much!
Miserable experience. Seated at southernmost parklet which got more wind than the others - we watched other patrons enjoy their meals while the wind blew good portions of our chopped salad onto the floor within moments following its arrival to our table, the tray holding our pizza nearly met the same fate. The cost of our meal including tip was about $130 - really poor value (chopped salad, pizza, prosecco) and spendy for the 5 or so minutes we stayed after our food arrived - the wind kept blowing everything off the table despite our futile attempts to anchor all down with cups and bottles - so it was a matter of either staying and losing the rest of our meal to the wind while freezing to death or leave to save what was left and to thaw our fingers. I also thought the tip was generous as it was effectively self-service canteen style: as we had to order at the cashier, as we had to bus our own tables, as we had to eat from paper plates, as we were miserably cold and windblown and while others were happily eating. And while I absolutely respect the stringent measures taken for the sake of employee health and safety, I found it to be completely overpriced for a completely unhappy and subpar experience. I was really excited to see that Che Fico had reopened and was offering outdoor dining, I was very happy to revisit but this last experience has left a bad enough impression that I am hard pressed to return.
We had the focaccia, eggplant caponata, and chopped salad. The focaccia had a great flavor, caponata was decent, and the chopped salad was nice but a tad too acidic. The total with tip came out to be around $50 which we did not feel was a great value. We were hoping for pasta on the menu but they said they were not currently serving it. A bit disappointing.
We enjoyed our first dining out experience since March at Che Fico, and it was wonderful! The precautions the restaurant are taking to keep all of us safe are exemplary. Kyle, who helped us order, was so friendly and knowledgable about the menu. The food was wonderful...the pizza and chopped salad are both huge, and so tasty! We also tried the prosciutto wrapped Asian pears, the suppli, and the eggplant caponata. Everything was excellent. Even my picky tween was raving about everything. This is the perfect outdoor dining space to feel safe, and to enjoy incredible food in a casual setting. We can't wait to go back.
The food is incredible and the service is so friendly! We took visiting family to their outdoor dining for a special treat and they can't stop raving about the food. One of our favorite spots in the city!!
The food was extremely expensive and not very flavorful. Everything was served in disposable plates. You had to order at the counter and then bus your own table.
Great food, though it's a shame COVID has forced them to restrict their menu options. The focaccia is incredible.
very good but was freezing cold out so more heater might be nice. :)
Che Fico has the most legit outdoor dining situation in the COVID era. It's clear their management has thought through how to safely and efficiently run their business during this time without sacrificing a great experience or incredible food.
Excellent considering dealing with Covid. Food wonderful
The cacio e pepe is unbeatable!! So delicious. Love the appetizers (so many great cheese options) and the green salad to share!
Really nice date place vibe. Excellent wine list. Food was delicious all the way. Highly recommend the eggplant parmigiana, the arancini(suppli al Telefono) and the Stracciatella with blood orange.
Another amazing meal! As always, outstanding food and excellent service. Every dish was wonderful starting with the focaccia, then the lasagna. The cioppino was also delicious and the roast chicken is as good as it can get! Like Zuni, it is served on a bed of croutons and salad, but this is the tastiest and juiciest chicken ever! Desserts were also great including the fantastic Easter tart and the tiramisu. Pretty noisy, but no worse than most San Francisco restaurants
