Cecilia's in South San Francisco is an enchanting neighborhood spot where the food is hearty and soul nourishing and the service is personable and sincere, along with an uplifting and comfortable atmosphere. The dining room is glowing with ambiance yet cozy, complimented by a giant painting of an old harbor that is breathtaking. Charm and elegance are in abundance here with tables dressed up in linen, Chianti bottles nestled in straw baskets and soothing music setting up the stage for the most memorable Italian feast. Our pizza combinations are true slices of heaven, It all starts with homemade dough hand tossed the old fashioned way and topped only with the best and freshest ingredients with emphasis on Italian specialties like artichoke hearts, fire roasted peppers, eggplant, and prosciutto among others. The pizzas here are daring and delicious like pizza Di Mare with clams, shrimp, and lots of garlic or the vegetarian compagnola pizza which transforms the most earthy toppings into a very tasty treat. Our pizza menu contains 12 special combinations that are tested and approved to satisfy all taste buds. Like Combo Classico, Pizza Athena, Quatro Gusti or Suprema and the list goes on. Our pasta selection lets you explore the rich flavors of different Italian regions serving classics like Spaghetti Meat Balls, Cannelloni, Hearty Lasagna and Linguini Alfredo. Vegetarian delights include Manicotti Fiorentina and Ravioli Al Pesto just to name a few. Our house specialties feature traditional favorites like Chicken Parmigiana, Veal Scaloppine, or Piccata with capers and white wine and for a special treat try the local favorite, Chicken Alla Cecilia's - rolled breast stuffed with prosciutto and Italian cheeses then sauteed with mushroom and white wine. We take pride in all our sauces, made right here at the restaurant with patience and pride, slow simmered to perfection.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 16reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by When you have Italian themed restaurants ran by non-Italians, the food is always subpar. The pasta dishes are blend, no flavor, Safeway food cooked in a bowl and splashed with can tomatoe sauce grade. The salmon piece was great to my taste, grilled but awkward to my partner. Her pasta was half left on her plate at the end. Pizza (cheese) was decent. Tiramisu cake is out of frozen box (feels like) so not home made. The closing espresso was good. Simple said, they did good with Arabic related dishes /drinks and subpar with the Italian ones. The crew is Arabic and assume that ownership, too. May 26, 2014
