La Nebbia from owners of La Ciccia (Noe Valley, SF)

hyperbowler | Jan 2, 2014 11:45 AM

Sporting frosted windows and a lack of signage, given the reputation of the owner's main restaurant, La Ciccia, it was no shock to see this new wine bar/restaurant filled on the Saturday night following Christmas.

The food menu includes a section of cheeses with accompaniments, several types of prosciutto (jamon iberico slipped in too), a few small plates, and six pizzas.

Fans of cured tuna heart will find it served simply on sheep's milk ricotta.

The format leaves good room for experimentation. For example, the Speck Fresh Mozzarella Gorgonzola Dop Lemon Zest pizza was very fragrant and the lemon and cheese combination reminded me of some of my favorite slices at Cheeseboard Pizza in Berkeley. The crust was thin and on the chewier side, and it needed some more salt.

Given what I'd read beforehand, I was surprised by the makeup of the clientele--- at 7pm, it was filled halfway with families with small children. At 7:40, the children were all gone and someone dimmed the lights. They don't take reservations, so I'd be curious to see if they can retain a family audience at the earlier hours.
