We had the octopus stew for a starter- it was swimming in a slightly spicy marinara sauce that was perfectly seasoned (as was the whole meal). Save some bread for the sauce. We split the pasta botarga and ordered the special: sea bass. We split a salad. The wine list is famous, and famously good- the hard part is deciding... More

Awesome Sardinian items. If you are not familiar with Sardinian cuisine, make sure to ask for guidance, you might miss opportunities for amazing dishes. Among others, excellent tripes and pasta with squid ink and lemon zest. Only downsides: tables tend to be small and close to each other, and they do not carry a license for spirits (which means mirto... More

This small unpretentious restaurant iin Noe Valley specializes in dishes from Sardinia, and you won't be disappointed in what they serve. Everything we had was wonderfully flavorful and expertly prepared. It's wine and beer only, so be prepared. Service is polished and pleasant, and the prices are not outrageous for such a superb meal.

Almost mist the restaurant located right in a T intersection. Parking might be difficult? I was lucky to find a spot within a few minutes. It is a small tight place, you will feel right back on vacation in Italy or France with your neighbors table in elbow reach and your waiters "derrières" just as close when serving the table... More

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 for this restaurant because it is is very popular. From its wine list to the... 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 mistake!. We ended up paying over $70 for two bottles of Sardinian wine that retail... More

OMG... If I lived in this town, is be at this Sardinian restaurant at least twice a week every week! Without question the very best Italian/Sardinian food I've EVER had in my life.

La Ciccia is a family-owned and run Sardinian restaurant in Noe Valley. We've dined here several times over the years and last night's meal was as spectacular as ever. Both the quality of the food and the attentive staff make this place one of our must-visit places whenever we're in San Francisco. The owners are a delightful couple. Their warm... More
