    One of my favorite Sf restaurants, even if they are a little too exacting on the wine pours (I.e., matching to a pre poured glass—one for each varietal). Delicious food, excellent service.

    Music was way too loud. As food was outstanding wine price was exhorbitant. Please add some affordable bottles on the menu.

    Very good food, service, ambiance but incredibly overpriced. Can get food just as good in many other restaurants in sf. It drives me *insane* when the cheapest glass of wine is $18 and then it’s the tiniest pour you have literally ever seen.

    Feeling blessed to have Che Fico in my neighborhood The food and service is fantastic The converted auto shop is lively and really attractive in a very natural under-designed fashion The entire staff is incredibly friendly and professional (must be the owners efforts to create equitable and increased compensation for the entire team It shows in the diner experience) Shout out to server Kira who was delightful Can’t wait to return

    We were a group of six and it was the first time at Che Fico. The atmosphere is very energetic and the decor is gorgeous. The attention to detail is obvious both in service and food. The food was a stylized version of some of the best Italian dishes and one could tell that only the best quality ingredients were use. I would have to say that I found some of the dishes overpriced and the portions too small. However in the final analysis the pizzas were great and the pastas were exceptional. Definitely go there and have a fun time.

    Hearty, tasty, and sophisticated Italian food in a warm and inviting setting. Excellent service and great wine list. My only complaint might be that it’s very expensive but a perfect night like this happens rarely.

    A well-run, energetic, restaurant with a professional staff that is trained in the "old school" ways, while being friendly and approachable. Sophisticated and stylish vibe without being super trendy. Delicious food, great wine list, house-made salumi, wood-fired oven, great looking pizza, pasta and more. Will have to go back with a larger group to do the menu justice.

    Che Fico was amazing! One annoying thing, they allow you to order take out but you can't order food to go while there. I was there with a group and wanted to order something to take home with me later. They told me this wasn't allowed. But said I could order food to the table then I could box it up to go.

    Such a good date night! The food was AMAZING, specifically the crust on the pizza, it’s actually a sourdough crust. We had counter seats for our reservation and were sat at the bar. The seats were great and we loved being in front of the action; next time we would love to sit at the counter seats at the kitchen though. I will say the service at the bar left me desiring better- it was really hard to get their attention to take our order for food or drinks and sometimes I felt they looked right at me trying to get their attention and didn’t come our way, but overall it wouldn’t deter me from returning. I will say every staff member that brought us food from the kitchen provided outstanding service and explained the food to us. 8.5/10!

    Food is great but restaurant is a mill. Never been so rushed before, especially at these prices and with an automatic surcharge of 10% before tax and tips. Everything about the restaurant is about squeezing the last penny from the patrons.

    Too salty. We had 5 entrees to share and all but 1 was almost too salty to eat. Then the figs were another level of over salty. Waitstaff was uninterested in communicating with our party other than taking the order. I came from Wisconsin to try this restaurant and I would not make the trip again.
