Only rave reviews for this little eatery in Noe Valley. Start with the Sardinian flat bread and olives. Wash it down with a glass of Sardinian white wine. Move on to the house made burrata and arugula. Then enjoy the squid ink pasta with citrus or the whole prawns. Finish the feast with a gelato assortment or a plate of... More

This place was really buzzing, and I can see why. Our table was not the best - at the very back - where it was dark and near the washrooms. But we went for the food and not the table location. From the starters we especially enjoyed the octopus which was literally swimming in a hearty and spicy tomato sauce.... More

Ive been here several times and I actually think it was better years before. I'm not sure if ownership (or kitchen staff) has changed but the food is not as good as it was in the past.......flavors are off and seem "Americanized". Too bad because authentic Italian restaurants are getting harder and harder to find.

I have been to this restaurant a few times in the past, it is often impossible to get a reservation, because so many people enjoy the delicious flavors of Sardinia that the chef serves each night. The space is small with a few bar seats available. The emphasis is on seafood but this night two of my friends ordered the... More

The best dinner we had over a week in SF. Exceptional no compromise Sardinian restaurant - e.g. calamari in red wine, rosemary, cloves! Deserves the plaudits on the wine list. Staff all very knowledgeable, friendly, discreet timely. Lovely to have the Italian proprietor couple there. Intimate, informal, not noisy, neighbourhood place - lucky Bernal Heights. Portions are very generous, we... More

We went to La Ciccia with 2 friends. It is a small restaurant and difficult to get a reservation. The food is wonderful! The service is excellent. I know little about Sardinian cuisine but would love to go back to La Ciccia again.

It is probably a great thing for locals this place has a #99 ranking in SF. It is hand-down one of top Italian SF has to offer. First off the proprietors are lovely.

This is the place. Thoughtful, Caring, Authentic food. Spectacular wine list! People in America are beginning to understand the value of "authentic" in their dining experiences. If you want to know what it is like to eat in Sardinia, GO EAT HERE.

This is an ideal quaint "off the downtown jaunt" wonderful Sardinian cafe. Fits in perfectly with the idyllic San Francisco ambiance in suburban type setting. Servers all wonderful.

Overall, quite good. A smallish neighborhood place serving Sardinian food. Limited menu and most everything was delicious although not always a WOW. Simple decoration. Cool service that didn't seem too eager to help.
