Expert Recommendations

"Chewy, slippery, freshly extruded spaghetti with a snow of Sardinian mullet roe all over—what else do you need? "No snow, no party," said God Clapton."
"This is amazing spaghetti from one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the city. It's perfectly al dente pasta with tons of salty bottarga and a spicy chili oil. It feels as if you are eating at home in Sardinia with Massimiliano and Lorella being the hosts."
"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."
"What other chef in SF who serves spaghetti with bottarga is actually Sardinian? Massimiliano of La Ciccia is the real deal."
"Fresh, thick spaghetti and creamy, briney goodness. This place is simply one of the most comfortable and best family restaurants in San Francisco."
