Savor Northern Italian dishes at an upscale Cardiff eatery that one Facebook reviewer praises for its "amazing, cozy, family feel " -- and its captivating ocean views:
• $20 for $40 to spend on food and drinks for two or more adults
• $35 for $70 to spend on food and drinks for four or more adults
• This spot's located just steps from the beach
The crisp, thin-crust quattro formaggi pizza with Parmesan, mozzarella, Taleggio, and Gorgonzola is a cheese-lover's dream, while the carpaccio di manzo -- featuring thinly sliced filet mignon with arugula, lemon, and capers -- is a study in delicate Italian cooking. Cicciotti's also serves more than a dozen varieties of pasta with as many unique sauces. Representing Italy and California, the wine list at this 11-year-old restaurant is equally impressive.
