San Francisco, CA 94131
Although San Francisco offers a never-ending supply of Italian eateries, none will feel quite as authentic as La Ciccia. This rustic, Noe Valley spot is Sardinia’s culinary ambassador to the city, boasting a cuisine specific to that Mediterranean island. Traditional entrees include fregola with sea urchin and smoked pancetta, a glorious bottarga (salt-cured fish roe), and, for dessert, truta de arrescottu: Sardinian ricotta and saffron cake with honey and toasted almond.
