Che Fico, is a new California Italian restaurant from Chefs David Nayfeld and Matt Brewer in San Francisco's NOPA neighborhood. The food focuses on Italian cuisine through the lens of California. It’s our vision of Northern California as if it is a region in Italy, our connection to the region, and our love for Italian culinary practices. The rustic, market-driven menu features handmade pasta, pizzas, antipasti, housemade salumi, meat, and fish plus dishes from the Jewish-Roman heritage known as “Cucina Ebraica.” The beverage program focuses heavily on both Italian and Californian wines with a cocktail program that utilizes a variety of spirits, amaros, and seasonal ingredients. Che Fico is a place to gather with friends and enjoy warm hospitality, food, and drink, through an approachable menu and convivial ambiance.

    We had a great dinner service at the bar/counter. Food was very good and the atmosphere fun. The only downside is that the prices are pretty high but it is worth it for a special occasion. Dress is pretty casual.

    Che fico offers an Italian culinary experience with hits and misses. The citrus salad was tasty, but not exceptional. The tagliatelle pasta disappointed with excessive oil and a lack of flavor. However, the margarita pizza stole the show, a solid choice worth a return visit. The polenta impressed, though the margarita pizza remained the preferred option. Dessert featured a delightful apple pie crust with gelato. The overall atmosphere is marred by loudness, and the music doesn't quite align with the ambience and menu. Consider Che fico for the pizza, but be mindful of the ambiance preferences.

    This was our first visit to Che Fico and we had heard the food was very good. I’d say that was an understatement- the food was amazing! They had a little different twist on the traditional Caesar salad with a delicious crumbly topping. The tagliatelle with ragu was hands down the best I’ve ever had! The pizza was also something you won’t soon forget. The fresh tomato sauce is so delicious I still think about how it tastes and the quality of the Parmesan cheese used is the best. Our waitress really nice and was very helpful with suggestions. The pacing of the meal was very well timed, not rushed but we were not left sitting for a long period of time. All in all a great evening with the food definitely being the star!

    We were very excited to check out Che Fico & the food & atmosphere didn’t disappoint. The service was marginal at best. The server wasn’t aware of the menu & seemed irritated when we inquired about menu offerings. Our drink order was incorrect twice. Great playlist & delicious food.

    Service and food were fantastic and the interior is lovely. The noise level is a big negative though. The music is obnoxiously loud and you can feel the bass vibrating on your chair. Appropriate for a club, not a restaurant.

    We were seated 20mins late, and then the servers kept bumping into my date like the entire time to the point that we literally picked up the table and moved it. Place seemed great, but definitely overbooked and the service a little overhyped

    If the prices were a fraction of what they were, this would be a knockout place. But the prices are exorbitant. 10% dine in fee. And just everything is so expensive. - Octopus 5/5 $35. - Short rib ravioli 5/5 5/5 beautiful delicious but small portion and ~$30. - side of braised veggies 3/5 good but too salty $16 - cocktail 5/5 but also $20! Horsefeather cocktails (down the road) also 5/5 and $16.

    Reserved a counter seat expecting to sit by the kitchen but was seated at the bar. That was fine but having a reservation and then being shoved into the noisy bar where patrons were bumping into my wife wasn’t ideal. The food was good but nothing really wow-ing especially not for the price point. Pizzas (personal size) are $30 - when you factor in the 10% dine-in up charge, tax and tip it’s easily over $40 and it’s just on par a dozen other places in SF. The 10% dine in charge didn’t seem to be mentioned anywhere but the bill where it’s described as a “transparent” way to pay their staff but definitely isn’t a tip. This feels like the Ticketmaster service fee of dining experiences.
