At La Ciccia, husband and wife owners, Massimiliano Conti and Lorella Degan create a cozy, soulful, and authentic Sardinian dining experience in San Francisco’s quiet Noe Valley neighborhood. If pleasure is of any value to you whatsoever you must consider starting your meal here with Spaghittusu cun allu ollu e bottariga (Fresh spaghetti, spicy garlic oil, salt-cured fish roe).
For a superb secondi,try Prupisceddu in Umidu. Incredibly tender and tasty Sardinian octopus is prepared in a thick, rich, and smoky tomato sauce infused with the spicy and fragrant essence of dried chiles.
Sardinian wines here are both well-chosen and surprisingly affordable, and sumptuous Sardinian desserts, such as Ricotta Rosemary Cake, or Saffron Ice cream are always delightful.
