Chef Matt McNamara reviews Spaghittusu cun allu ollu e bottariga at La Ciccia
$$$ | Italian
Noe Valley
"This is the best pasta dish in San Francisco. It has incredible richness and salinity. The bottarga creates a cream-like quality once you stir it into the perfectly cooked fresh spaghetti."
Chef Gary Rulli reviews Pani guttiau at La Ciccia
$$$ | Italian
Noe Valley
"Massimo and Lorella make you feel as if you are dining in their home. Their rustic cooking is spectacular! It's the ultimate feeling of Italian hospitality, and their dishes, like this crisp Sardinian flatbread, transport you back to Sardinia."
Chef Elizabeth Binder reviews Malloreddus a sa Campidanese at La Ciccia
$$$ | Italian
Noe Valley
"Massimo's Senatore Cappelli wheat pasta with pork sugo is one of my all-time favorite dishes. When I was living in the neighborhood, La Ciccia was definitely my go-to spot and I'd order this dish every time I'd go in. It's one of those dishes that's peasant and traditional. The gnocchetti is the perfect carrier for the beautiful, bold flavors of the sugo. It balances out perfectly with the acidity from the tomato and the salty cheesiness from the Pecorino. It's warming, hearty, and comforting."
