    Always a beautiful experience here. Love getting to know the staff, always welcoming, always professional. My favorite is the vongole pasta. Pasta is always the perfect al dente, homemade, always fresh. The classic tiramisu is one of the best I’ve had. Never disappoints.

    This is the second time we have visited. We had exactly the same food. Spaghetti clams, salad, and suckling pig. The ambience is dark casual and VERY noisy. Tables oh so close to each other. It was ok first time because we were impressed by the food. Pasta was good and decent portion. Salad good and good portion. Pig on second time was horrible. Nice portion but chewy, gristly, hard thick chewy skin, and difficult to eat. Honestly, I’m not sure it was a suckling pig. Yukon gold potatoes with it were delicious both times. Just returned from Vegas and had suckling pig at Julian Serrano in Atria. If you like suckling pig….you’ve got to go there. Tender, juicy, and thin crispy skin. Yum. Dessert, We had the crostata (apple)….excellent buttery crust but it was presented more like a slice of pie with DRY apples lacking sauce. We were also given a chocolate hazelnut gelato (delicious). But add in the Italian wines (I like Chardonnay, of which there was none) and the extra 10% fee for “cost of living” plus tip and I’m not sure why I would want to return. So sorry Che Fico, I was disappointed by all of the reasons above

    Everything was so incredible as usual, but the Apple crostata was just a tad dry. The apples felt a bit chewy and leathery. The rest of our meal was fantastic, as always, though!

    Service was excellent, our food was very salty (I ordered the fish). Additionally, I ordered the pasta with clams without chili pepper, arrived with chili pepper. Server replaced it right away but I was charged for both at $68… now I have to contact the restaurant and correct it. Maybe because it was a mid-week reservation.

    I love Che Fico Alimentari. Their combinations and layers of flavors are expertly crafted. I make a decent red sauce, and good pasta is pretty easy to find, so when we eat out we want unusual flavors and combinations. You always get this at Che Fico and Che Fico Alimentari. It's lively at the Alimentari, so if you're looking for a quieter place, check out the upstairs (Che Fico). Ciao!

    The restaurant is beautiful and the food was uniquely delicious. Because my party had changed size, the restaurant called me to inquire about it. I appreciate it because one of my party could have been late and the restaurant needed to know for tabling. Che Fico is a San Francisco must! We love it because it is conveniently located near our Mount Zion campus. Thank you for helping us entertain important visitors to UCSF.

    We sat outside on a pretty cold night. Heaters aren't positioned to do much, unfortunately. Service is excellent - everyone on the team is friendly, knowledgeable and professional. The food is very tasty. But, it's really expensive for what it is. We paid $100 per person for some shared starters, a plate of pasta per person, and a bottle of wine per couple. The wines we ordered were ~$75 per bottle -- the cheapest options on the menu. We looked them up and they retail for $19. So that's quite a mark-up! Probably wouldn't go back due to the high prices.

    The quality of the food was not were it was supposed to be at that price point. The bottle of red wine was cold when it was served. Again not the best approach to achieving a high rating.

    I was curious to try the newish tasting menu.For the price $55 I found it to be a very good value.There were two choices for antipasti and main course with tiramisu for dessert.I opted for meatballs for my starter and egpplant parmigiana for my main course.The starter was four meatballs with a slice of grilled bread to soak up the generous amount of sauce.It was a delicious start to the meal.The eggplant parmigiana was also a generous portion.It was cooked perfectly and was firm and not at all soggy.There was a thick cheese crust on top and plenty of tomato sauce.I ate half and had to restrain myself from finishing as I wanted to save room for dessert.One of the best eggplant parmigianas I have ever had.The tiramisu was excellent as well,not overly sweet.All in all a great meal.

    Music is too loud. Please close the front door--it is cold inside. Food tastes like "home cooking" which can be done at home. The prices are just crazy. $25 for a salad? But in an elite, effete city like San Francisco, this place seems appropriate.

    Very grateful to have this wonderful cozy restaurant in my neighborhood. From the greeting by reception team (Jennifer in particular) the great service by Leanne, and delicious food and cozy ambience, it cannot be beat! I also like Che Fico’s continued efforts to establish a fare wage and benefits program for their team. Kudos to management for really understanding that to have a healthy work environment in such a tough business, the people who are doing the work need compensation and benefits that allow them to exist in very expensive San Francisco.

    Salads and mains were exceptional, as were the wine recommendations. Service was extremely friendly and warm. Our dessert was the one weak note - a chocolate pudding. It was not bad. It was fine. But not up to the level of everything else.

    We’ve dined at Che Fico multiple times, this was our first experience at Alimentari and it did not disappoint. Loved the atmosphere, loved the seating options, we opted for the counter to have a Birds Eye view of the kitchen. The music was lively, a nice mix of old school R&B & funk! Service was impeccable, friendly and personable, they get it!! Food was superb, the menu choices, like upstairs are meant to be shared which makes it nice to try a variety of items. We look forward to our next visit hopefully sooner than later. Highly recommend!

Our waitress was knowledgeable of the menu and made some awesome suggestions which were absolutely delicious. I'd like to specifically highlight Jennifer's service! She was an exceptional hostess. Although she wasn't our waitress she checked in frequently and had an amazing personality. Thank you for making my friends birthday a pleasurable and memorable one

    If you're looking for a light, refreshing spaghetti dish, this is not the place for you. The lemon flavor is strong and overpowering, making it difficult to taste the delicate flavor of the clams.
