This is the only place that I have to visit when in the Russian River area. They serve the best Italian food, with great flavor, and service. They were decked out for Easter and handling several birthdays on this visit, so our service was slower this time, but the food was wonderful as usual, and even though we tried to... More

We ate corned beef and cabbage on St. Patricks Day here loved it Disappointed, the other days we were there they ran out of pot pies because they are homemade in limited batches and sold out! Fun place to go to.

Quite a lot of food for price. Totally traditional Italian. Lasagna was exactly what could be expected--meaty cheesy goodness! Some entrees could have easily fed 3-4 people interested in eating reasonable portions. Excellent service. Happy to recommend for its genre.

I have been coming here since the 1950s. We have so many memories of great times here, we cannot help but enjoy a visit. Bartenders and wait staff will vary in attitude and charm, but we always have good libations and food.

friendlybartenders serve the fair food poor pizza and forgetable specials as best they can. management stays out of bar which is a plus. family style dinners have a decent minnestrone soup but that is it. service ok.

This is how every great family style Italian restaurant should be. It's been run by the Gonnella family for generations. Old style delicious recipes and large portions. This location has ambiance than the two newer locations in Santa Rosa don't have. This place has been in the quaint little burg of Occidental for over 100 years. They serve great comfort... More

I just finished celebrating my birthday and the highlight was dinner at the Union Hotel. I have been coming here since I was a child and it never disappoints. We are almost an hour away and it is always worth the drive.

I last ate here in 1984, when it was excellent. I am glad to say it still is. There is a slightly relaxed European feel. The service was great, but not too pushy. Great Italian food, with real pizzas, and decent wine. A very nice evening.

One of my fondest memories is coming here as a child and being wowed by the food and service. My Sicilian immigrant parents thought the world of this place, and that was (sigh) a tough audience. My mom was an exceptional cook, so if she liked it, well, how can you go wrong? I've visited many times over the years,... More

Twelve of us decided to eat out on this night to avoid cooking and the hassle of clean up. My salad was okay, fresh and there was plenty of it, and I had the polenta and portabello mushroom. It could have been good but was far too salty. My husband had pasta with seafood and it wasn't much to rave... More
