Trip Report A Sardinian restaurant in San Francisco

Jump to last reply

Last night four of us had a celebratory meal at La Ciccia (30th and Church) in San Francisco. For those staying downtown, the J Church street car stops right in front of the restaurant. The menu is in Sardinian (with English translation) and the wines are for the most part from Sardinia.

We had four appetizers (flat bread with olive oil and rosemary, 4 sardine fillets, a plate of almost translucent house-cured pancetta, and a rich bean soup), three primi (3 different pastas, one in squid ink, another with a sea urchin sauce, and the third with smoked trout), two secondi (lamb and sea bass fillet), two desserts, 4 coffees and two $50 bottles of wine. Total cost with tax and tip (about 18%) was $380. Not expensive for San Francisco.

Service was excellent, and the staff immediately understood that this would be a shared meal giving all of us a spoon for the soup and placing the food in the middle of the table. The one downside is that the restaurant is noisy. Reservations are essential.

This restaurant is worth a detour, even if Michelin does not mention it.
