I was so looking forward to a great Italian dinner here as the reviews were quite good. However, we were somewhat disappointed. We ordered a large salad which was excellent. Balsamic dressing was delicious. However, we asked that the peppers be put on the side. They never arrived and I had to stand in line at cashier to request them.... More

We came here at the recommendation from the host at a tasting we had just done. The food was fantastic and the service was great. For someone with gluten issues they had great choices!

We were told about this place by one of the wineries we visited. Great casual spot for dinner or to pick up picnic goodies. Food was delicious and tons of variety. Great value!! Our new favorite spot to stop while visiting Sonoma.

We have eaten here many times and enjoy it every time we return to the valley. The gnocchi are delicious, luscious and pillowy soft. My husband had the polenta with a madeira porcini sauce that was divine. And of course, they have cannoli for dessert.

this is a no frills kind of place. food was good but nothing special. Any restaurant that serves an iceberg lettuce kind of salad sets the tone for the meal. It is what it is, but nothing too special

Wonderful selection, and great food! We enjoyed lunch and was very face from the time we walked in the door. This is a great place for a nice little stop in the middle of the valley.

I don't know what everyone is raving about. The lasagne was downright gross. The pasta was like baby food and the sauce tasted like it came out of a can. The meat in the sauce was the size of bebes. Caesar salad is about the dressing and there was very little of it, so I basically got a plate of... More

Nice and consistent homemade Italian food. Everyone can mix and match to their own heart's desire. The sauces are flavorful and different for different dishes (Yay!). We've eaten here many times, both inside and out on the patio. We haven't had a bad experience yet, and our friends seem to love it as well.

You order at the counter, then sit down and they bring your food to you. Everything was very fresh and tasty. They make their own focaccia on site. The kids enjoyed some fusilli pasta with butter/parm. Sandwiches and pizza were also great. Would definitely go back.
