Do note that La Ciccia is a small, cozy restaurant. Their bar area is much smaller than say, the “bar area” of Bavel, Bestia, Republique, etc. So it’s only a few seats and might be on the cozier side. Just something to consider.
Instead of relying on Open Table I’m going to call and see what they can do. If we can’t snag a resy I can at least feel them out about the chances of getting a bar seat early on the 18th or 19th. I wish we could get there sooner, but we can’t leave L.A. any earlier than the 16th. Let’s not forget the stop off in the to be determined coastal town.
Oh good. We weren’t sure we could get in town soon enough, but I think we can swing it. Thanks, for this and the other research. We got Liholiho Yacht Club for Tuesday
at 9:45 PM. @PorkyBelly wasn’t lying about that also being a tough resy. Tuesday night at 9:45! We may try for one more resy, maybe Zuni Cafe. Other than that we’re going to be spontaneous and see where the wind takes us.
Okay, I did book it. But don’t throw things at me folks. We may not be able to swing it. The original plan was to hang out in the coastal area during the weekend and hit SF for a few weekdays (less busy, less pricey). I really want to go to La Ciccia, so I tried to push it up. But there’s a couple of events going on and the hotel prices shot up. Apologies for talkin’ $ but we’re not feeling spending a few hundred more on hotels to get a restaurant resy. Bad timing.
So many other dining options out there, save LC for another time when you have more time. At least you scored a lot of valuable info from all of us that chimed in. (Worst case, stay at some AirBnB outside of SF if it lowers cost)
True. There’s so much good info. I’m compiling a list. Also true we can stay outside the city in an AirBnB or VRBO. I haven’t cancelled any of our hotel or restaurant resy yet, and still have time to do some research and make a decision. It would be nice to at least have a kitchenette. I ain’t doin’ no cookin’! It would be strictly for leftovers and bakery stuff. Thanks!
