Been there several times. The food compares to best places in New York and Italy. The octopus, langoustine and spicy marinara were just as I remembered. Flew from Ponte Vedra Beach, Fl just to eat here. :) Will be back!!! JC

La Ciccia is my favorite restaurant in San Francisco. Massimiliano's creations are delicious and he always surprise me with new recipes. Reserve in advance (but if you come from Sardinia he always find a table for you)

Located at the southern edge of Noe Valley lies this treasure. Every time I go the owner greets me in Italian and kisses my cheek, I don't speak, nor do I understand Italian, but that doesn't stop me from feeling very special! Make a reservation...More

Five of us each ordered different plates, including appetisers and dolches and all were exceptional. To nitpick a little, the bread is not up to San Fransisco standards so order the flatbread. Good wine list but we mistakenly let the waiter pick Our wine. Bad...More
