Everything is 5 stars only thing they don’t take reservations via phone but are keeping tables for “regulars” while everyone else is waiting. Although it is understandable they should clarify it rather than pretend that they take reservation for “4 people”. Other than that definitely 5 stars and we will be back!
Today was a tough day, a day that called for some excellent comfort food. We'd only been to La Ciccia once before, but it seemed to fit the bill for tonight. It's not comfort food because of nostalgia, but rather in the sense of food that is so good it makes us feel better. We got take-out since this is during covid era. While the food would be better if it didn't have to make the 20minute journey home, it was still quite delicious. We got the spaghetti with bottarga and the sea urchin tomato fusilli with shaved tuna heart. We made the mistake of not ordering a dessert and were sad once we finished the pastas. The down side of take-out is that it's harder to add to your order after you've started your meal. I'm a huge fan of the salty umami bomb that is bottarga. The fresh spaghetti was tender but still had a bite to it and paired perfectly with the spicy garlic bottarga mixture coating it. It did clump a bit together because it was take out, but it's so good that I licked that plate clean. I remembered being a bit disappointed on my first trip that the sea urchin (uni) pasta wasn't more sea urchin-y. Taking it for what it is though, it's a fantastically decadent dish with just a hint of the ocean from the sea urchin. The tomato and shaved tuna heart serve to add intense umami to the dish. The fusilli is a great pasta for the creamy sauce as it's got all these nooks and crannies so you get more sauce with each bite. The pasta might've been warmer and more al dente if we had dined in, but it was still worthy of a plate licking. So yea, next time you're in need of comfort food whether dining in or taking out, think of La Ciccia and don't forget to order dessert. And wine. That wine list is a great way to try some Italian wines. The mark-up isn't terrible, and it's mostly wines you won't find easily in your local wine store. Actually, I might still do take out post Covid since it's really hard to get a reservation here.
The seared lamb chops and the bean soup (which looks to be a new menu item) were so incredibly tasty! La Ciccia is my favorite Italian spot in the city. Relaxing atmosphere and amazing food and wine.
