La Ciccia

 

 

restaurant-la-ciccia

 

Cozy, homey, noisy, and soulful, this small Sardinian restaurant is set on the edge of San Francisco’s Noe Valley. Here Prupisceddu in Umidu (octopus stew) will bathe your senses in its thick, rich and smoky tomato sauce infused with dried chiles.

Sardinian wines are well-priced here and the desserts, such as Saffron Ice cream or Ricotta Rosemary Cake, are consistently delicious.
