SF Weekly's Description

Massimiliano Conti is on a mission to acquaint San Franciscans with the food of Sardinia, his home island. There's nothing superfluous in his Italian cooking, and it's just as season-specific as anything you'll find at Boulevard, but La Ciccia's food is rife with flavors most Californians have never encountered outside Europe. An ideal dinner here might start with a plate of Conti's housemade charcuterie, move on to tagliolini sauced with artichokes and bottarga (dried mullet roe), climax with a bowl of earthy, saffron-scented lamb stew, and wind down with a selection of Sardinian sheep and goat cheeses. The long, all-Italian wine list at this Glen Park restaurant includes a selection of indigenous classics, such as tart, fruity Vermentino and soft, aromatic Cannonau (Grenache), as well as rare bottles and older vintages from other regions.

    Sick Menu and even sicker wine list; both expertly manicured after the chef's tastes and homeland (Sardinia). You won't want to leave!

    Not so much San Francisco Italian, as pure unadulterated regional Italian, this family-run sparkler is free of pretension and full of love. Don’t miss the sea urchin pasta. [Eater 38 Member]

    7x7's Big Eat 2012 says the spicy baby octopus stew is delicious. Yum!

  • Try a rare & different wine tonight: Campagnano's Pallagrello Bianco. This white grape delivers full-bodied, low acidity wines, w/ apricot & peach flavors (similar in ways to big whites of N Rhone).

    Who thought Squid ink in pasta would be so good!?
