    We were a little nervous / hesitant after hearing the ownership has changed, but we could not have been happier! The favorites were still on the menu. It seemed many of the existing staff have remained, and the food was as outstanding as ever! Thank you to the new owners for continuing this magical dinning experience! We now live in the city and will be regulars. Thank you for a fantastic evening and maintaining the outstanding quality! Warm regards, Justin

    Unfortunately, it was over-priced for what it was. It was not necessarily bad, it was just that there are countless Italian restaurants in the city that serves 2x better food half price.

    2nd time we've eaten here. We live in New York and when we stay at SFO, we eat here. But it's way better than just a stop. Perfect neighborhood restaurant. And Sardinian food is a little different....and delicious. We will be back

    We love La Ciccia. The food is so true to the region. If you have never had bottarga it is a must. Had I just read the description it might not have sounded appealing but I have been to Sardinia and love this amazing dish. You won't be disappointed! Also a must is the flat bread. If you are a crispy texture person like me, its heaven. We re already looking forward to our next dinner.

    More wait staff needed. 20-30 seated before food order was taken was not good, and then another 25-30 min before food arrived. Dissatisfiedr for sure that needs to be addressed.

    We’ve been to La Ciccia several times over the years. The food is consistently good, service is excellent and prices, except for the wine list, are reasonable. This small, neighborhood restaurant is truly a San Francisco “hidden gem”.

    I read about this place on a website called “The Infatuation SF” they review places to eat around the bay area. We made reservations for 5:00 which is when they open. It’s a lovely place at the end of Church St. in SF. Service was great and attentive. I ordered the mixed greens salad which was simple, fresh and tasty. My wife who is Sicilian and loves anchovies ordered them for a salad. She felt there was way too much oil and vinegar, although the anchovies by them selves were fantastic. For the main course I had the Sea Food Pasta which was just fantastic. So good that I recommended it to the next table. When it arrived at their table she felt the same way about it. My wife ordered the Prawn dish which she was quite happy with. Dessert was Panna Cotta a light chocolate flavor drizzled with honey. A great way to top off a wonderful meal. Needless to say we will be going back. Get an early seating as when we left the place was full, and for good reason

    The host was insisting we order more than was required for a group of four of us and though we took his advice we eventually cancelled as the food was heavy and helpings decent . One needs to have a developed taste for Sardinian food and do check the menu before hand

    Food was good, but needs to be more creative with vegetables, specially the ones that accompany entrees specials. Support service was solid but main waitress lacked professionalism and the interest in being there was not apparent.

    We got very worried when we heard the independent owners of our local gem, La Ciccia, were retiring and selling the business to a restaurant group. Although they swore nothing would change, we had serious doubts. What a relief, then, to learn that that sale fell through and, instead, Cheryl the real estate broker decided to take the place over herself. She lives two blocks away and had been a regular customer, so she had a vested interest in preserving all the charms that La Ciccia boasted: outstanding and quirky Sardinian cuisine, knowledgeable and friendly staff, impressive wine list. The spaghetti bottarga's still on the menu, as is seafood pasta in squid ink, a flatbread appetizer, a seafood special, and all the rest. It's a little pricey, but isn't everything?

    2nd time dining here. Experience this time was less than satisfactory. Ordered lamb medium. Came out well done. Sent it back. Waiter was absolutely flustered. Manager reassured us new order would be right out. Not even close. Waiter was offering rest of our party dessert menu and lamb was still not on the plate. When asked about the lamb he said he was here for our dessert order not the lamb. Complete amateur. Will think twice before returning.

    Very average experience. The place has a very neutral decor, which is not particularly attractive. The service was nice and kind, but inside there was an air draft that was bot pleasant to feel. Food was not as exceptional as expected, especially for the price range. While the menu was proposing traditional Sardinian dishes, the flavors were quite monotonous and not elaborate.

    It was good knowing that La Ciccia has maintained its high standards and superb food. My partner and I had not been there since before Covid, and we had read that ownership had changed recently. La Ciccia is still the same excellent, authentic Italian restaurant that we had learned to love. It was good to see the restaurant completely full and the diners all seemed very happy. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Five stars !!!
