First off walked into find the cook/ owner complaining to the waitress/owner. Then got pointed to our seats, cook goes back to the kitchen and complaining in back and still being hushed. After that got bread and water, wasn't offered drinks or specials, not even butter or oil/balsamic for the dry bread. Table next to us had a little one... More

Our visit was later in the evening on a weeknight yet the service and food quality we received was excellent. The salmon was outstanding and a dish of mixed scallops and prawns was superb. Very flavorful. The atmosphere is romantic with subdued lighting and classic Italian decor. Excellent experience.

Pleasant meal. Quiet setting on the edge of town. Wish we would have sat outdoors. Very typical menu; our selections were well prepared. Service was uninspired. Suggestions: 1) Special barbecued oysters were excellent--very large, steamed in the shell with garlic and kale. 2) Bring your own wine. You are in the middle of Wine County, corkage is $12, and the... More

Had the opportunity to stay in the lovely, charming town of Cloverdale and eat at this wonderful family owned Italian Restaurant. The owners Mary and her husband Jose were so friendly and personable, made us feel welcome and the food was fabulous. We ended up dining there 3 times during our 7 night stay. I highly recommend the place. Love... More

Dropped in with a fairly sized group with little prior notice. We were immediately seated and in spite of a fairly wound-up group of people (we'd been sampling wine all day long during Dry Creek Valley Passport weekend), the staff was gracious and very accommodating. We were offered a "prix fixe" meal selections and that's what we did. I thought... More

While traveling trough Sonoma/Mendocino counties for wine tasting we lucked upon this fantastico restaurant. If there are friendlier, more genuine owners, we haven't found them yet. It was a bit of a wait to get in as it was "Restaurant Week". Mary Pelayo, owner, greeted as if we were old friends and introduced us to her husband, Jose, chef/owner. She... More

There is better Italian food in Sonoma County but we go back for the daily specials and seafood dishes which are very good. Family run, sometimes service can be slow but the food is consistent, the wine list is good, and it's close to our home.

One of Cloverdale's better restaurants. Food is creative and delicious; reasonable portions. Soups are a specialty. Great place to take visitors. Mary and her service staff are always available and attentive. Jose is not afraid to try to new recipes, and the ones we've tried have been excellent. Some nights are noisy. All of our guests have been happy with... More

A small unassuming restaurant with outstanding Italian food. The calamari steak is to die for. Good, reasonable wine list. Very friendly staff and good service. Nice atmosphere. We try to go at least once whenever we are in the area.
