Any reports? There is precious little on Chowhound about this place.

  1. I'd be curious to hear as well. I've been to the Westin and thought the space itself looked amazing, and the "cicchetti" appetizer sounds intriguing even if it's just glorified bar snacks...

    1. Can you give us a little background on Ducca - where is it located? what is the concept, when is/was it supposed to open, etc.?

      1. re: DavidT

        Here's a link to the Sep. 2 Chronicle review. The place is on 3rd near Market.

      2. I've been for lunch only, and have mixed feelings. The outdoor setting is lovely on a nice day (and looks like it would be fun for drinks around the firepit).

        The food is a very Venetian menu with maybe 6 appetizers and 6 entrees at lunch.

        I had the duck salad on one visit, which was good but the duck had been cooked so that it was still pretty greasy. The dressing on the salad provided some acid, but it could have been balanced better. Another visit, I had the seafood salad, which was marinated seafood, including a good portion of squid.

        My friends had a pappardele with sugo which was quite good (tasted like fresh pasta), and a fish dish which wasn't very good.

        The dinner menu looks better, with more choice.

        1. Went there for a company dinner; fish and meat fixed menus. Salad was great, meat was ok but a bit bland (grass-fed perhaps?) and fish was decent with dessert good enough. I certainly wouldn't pay for a meal there myself tho with those prices...

          1. I just got back from lunch there and LOVED it. I had the argula salad (which was huge) and the Cod (delicious!). We started with the risotto fritters that were also very tasty. Even the olive oil on the table was really good. I'd recommend it. I can't wait to go back for happy hour - they have a great patio.
