I think our primary server had a bad night!
It was delicious the food!
Great modern-Italian menu. Huge Italian wine list and wonderful amaro focused cocktails
Good for *social distancing* with your partner or family. Tables are far apart. Interesting wine list. Amazing tiramisu. Service was spotty/all or nothing. Pasta tasty but in my opinion not worth the price tag. Porchetta “for two” is realy for three or four if you’re ordering starters or sides.
Overall, lovely dining room. Not blown away by the food. Fine place for pizza and wine date. If you go soup to nuts it’s going to be spendy. Not something I’d wait hours to walk in or weeks for a reservation.

The ambiance is great but the food was very overpriced.
Such good food! Their bread products, the focaccia, the pizza crust are awesome.. the pasta with Bolognese sauce.. yum!
unknown to us we had one gluten intolerant and one lactose intolerant guest (from sweden!) and che fico was the perfect place. a wide range of delicious foods, a very tolerant server who was able to navigate between us and the kitchen, the cheese was all on the side and even questioned whether a little flour was added to the chicken broth. fantastic.
Brussel sprouts pizza is amazing!!!! Also the chopped salad is great.
We received our appetizer 30 minutes after we were seated and waited another 30 minutes before flagging our server to see how our dinner was coming, then everything came at once. We had high hopes for this neighborhood restaurant, but won't be rushing back.
I would recommend it to a Millennial who has nothing to say.
It is way, way , WAY too noisy!!!
But the food was divine.
We got sat at a corner counter table by the window even tho I reserved the table month before and was hoping for a real table to have an Intimate dinner. We were celebrating something and we’re disappointed
We really enjoyed the atmosphere, drinks, and delicious food. However, it is very expensive for what it is and the drinks are overpriced. The roasted chicken was delicious but prepared differently last night compared to the first time we visited and we liked it the first time more because it came with some bread stuffing. The sister restaurant is really fast as well!
The restaurant itself has a good, lively crowd and lovely decor. Put off by the hostess...she came by our table, after we sat for about 15 minutes-and before our waiter even came to take our order-to tell us we had to leave within 1 1/2 hour. That brought us to 1 hour and 15 left prior to ordering or getting any food. She said it in the most brusque-actually downright rude-manner. We were fine with having to eat within a certain amount of time-there would have been no need to say a thing. The woman hostessing should not be front of house! Our waiter was great. But we were definitely put off by the hostess-she spoiled the evening-and will make me consider returning. The food was great except the lasagna-it was overcooked-crunchy actually-and flavorless. I've made better. Skip it! Order the brussel sprout pizza and cauliflower sformatta. Delish!
Food was overall okay but nothing really stands out.
Could be I was having a really high expectation because of the hype ...
Food oversalted and very slow service
We had a fantastic dinner. Ordered many courses to try and enjoy. The wine som, Dominic, was knowledgeable, very friendly and energetic. Our server however was rude, snobby and curt with us. He had 0 personality! When we asked for espresso after dinner he said “ We are an American restaurant serving Italian food. So no we don’t have espresso.”
This place is great every single time. The food is great and ambiance is beautiful!
Great food, diverse menu, and excellent service. On the noisy side.
Wonderfully fantastic. My 3rd visit and have enjoyed every one. Never disappoints.
What a fantastic restaurant...every dish is a flavor surprise
We love Che Fico!!! Wish it was easier to get in we would eat there much more often!!!
Really special. Great menu, food that is exciting and different (don’t miss the cauliflaur sfromata, pineapple Chile pizza, Nero pasta). Sophisticated service, slightly slow in pieces. Too full for dessert but loved the rest of it.
I am always amazed at the quality of the service. I expect the food to be excellent and it does not disappoint. Amazing service is rare and they are consistently excellent.
I loved the triangoli vegetarian stuffed pasta, but to be honest, I was not wowed by the bolognese, it was barely saucy and had little flavor. Our pizza choices were more of a miss as well. Since the prices are so high, it was more disappointing to have a so-so pasta and one pizza in particular that was sloppy, soggy and not well balanced.
In particular the sommelier was great. She was very knowledgeable and able to perfectly describe and pair wine for our meal.
It was very, very loud. Service was very slow and mostly indifferent. Food was just ok. Not impressed, we won’t return.
The food was pretty good, but this restaurant was so unbelievably loud. I couldn’t hear my dinner partner speak most of the time. I’d never go back
It took a while for our food to arrive. And it was noisy; could use some sound baffles.
Love Che Fico! Excellent service, unique food, and trendy ambiance. I will be back again.
Creative, novel, and amped-up food that never plays it safe and often hits it out of the park. You will pay for the opportunity to dine here, but this electric modern take on Cal-Ital food (and outstanding cocktails in a crowded bar area) is worth the splurge.
Third time's the charm! They have definitely ironed out the kinks from the last two times I have visited.
This place never fails! Great food great ambiance and great service! If you don't like loud music you've been warned....don;t go. Its hip great for groups and constantly popping
My tab was already almost $800. I felt it was really disrespectful that an employee came back after I paid the tab and passively aggressively suggested that I didn’t tip enough. It was overall a great experience but that last tidbit caused the meal to end on a bit of a sour note. Our first server Robin was fabulous and we really enjoyed the great time that we spent with her time there. Truly our second server was alright as well. I cannot stress enough that it was so so disrespectful for her to come up to me and suggest my tip was inappropriate. I also want to state that the SF mandate was already included into our tab.
The Valentine's prix-fixe menu was an utter disappointment. The lasagna and the branzino, whcih we were very much looking forward to, were in our opinion ruined my the excessive amount of extremely bitter chard and winter greens. To make matters worse, one of the side dishes that came with the main course was an entire bowl of bitter broccoli rabe. I understand (and appreciate) using seasonal ingredients, but in this case our meal was completely forgettable. Sadly, the price was high, so we won't be forgetting any time soon.
Loved the Valentines menu!
Absolutely amazing food, ambiance, and wine. Service is great as well. I would try the squid ink pasta!
Pastas a bit salty
Getting our food was really slow and while our waiter was very friendly when he was talking to us, it felt like he barely checked on us. We had an 8:00pm reservations and our mains didn't get to the table until after 9:30pm. Food was fine but nothing was out of this world. When the check came it felt expensive for what we got even if not more so than other similar restaurants in SF.
Must order the Pineapple Pizza and the Ragu Pasta!!!
Thank you for everything
