La Ciccia - SF - Must Try Dishes?
- Dave MP May 6, 2008 12:38 PM
I'm eating at La Ciccia for the first time tomorrow night and I'm very excited. Are there any dishes that I need to be sure to order? Anything to avoid? I'm basically going in with the assumption that most everything has the potential to be great, so it'll depend on what's on the menu tomorrow.
One of my favorite places...everything is great!
For starter: Prupisceddu in Umidu (Octopus stew in a spicy tomato sauce) and the Sardinian flatbread with sea salt and olive oil. For pasta: Fresh Spaghetti with Cauliflower and Bottarga
They often have a whole fish main course not on the printed menu. Go for that if it's available.
Enjoy and please report back.
Pasta with seafood sauce or bottarga or whatever it is that day.
Whatever lamb they're doing that day.
Skip the pizza.
For appetizers I like the octopus stew and the seafood salad (served warm, very lemony).
When I want something comforting I get the maloreddus (gnocchi shaped semolina pasta) with pork ragu. I also love getting the whole fish. Lamb is always a good bet. I don't think the pizzas are that great.
I love the ricotta and saffron cake for dessert. The wine list is fantastic and reasonably priced.
