La Ciccia is a cozy and intimate restaurant located on the edge of Noe Valley. Husband and wife owners, Massimiliano Conti and Lorella Degan work together to take you to a culinary journey through the Italian island of Sardinia. The chef is committed to use the freshest and the most authentic ingredients from his native island, resulting in pungent, lively, flavorful food. The all Italian wine list,170 labels selection represent every Region with more than a quarter devote to Sardinia in order to pair the traditional earthy flavors as well seafood influence of Sardinia cuisine. La Ciccia is a tribute to Sardinia an experience not to be missed.

"I didn't know what it was either! Unique dishes in terms of prep and flavoring; similar to some general Italian but, many that I've never encountered before. Calamari appetizer had whole, large squid in a delicious sauce. The fish special grilled to perfection with an olive topping to die for. The wine list is huge. Since most were not wines we were familiar with, we asked our fabulous waiter for a recommendation that was fabulous. Since I live in the neighborhood, I've been there before but, the food just gets better every time I go. The owners are sweethearts as well."

Passionfish offers a unique California dining experience with serious food and wine in a fun and casual atmosphere. The ever-changing menu features the freshest, sustainable seafood, slow-cooked meats, organic greens and delectable desserts, all complemented by an award winning wine list priced nearly retail and well below what you've come to expect. Passionfish is owned and operated by Chef Ted Walter and his wife Cindy Walter. They are vocal advocates for sustainable seafood education and were the first officially certified 'Green' restaurant in Monterey County.

"This is our 4th dining experience at Passionfish and we were again thrilled with the food, wine and service. Loved the crabmeat and avocado salad. My friend had scallops that were wonderfully prepared and delicious. I had the Mahi and it was just as tasty as the fish I'd eaten in Hawaii. The server recommended an "obscure" red wine (our request) and the Refosco was excellent. I just love this place and recommend it to friends who are visiting the Monterey peninsula. Even though we live in "foody" SF, Passionfish is worth spending a weekend in Pacific Grove."
