Choose this place as had craving for Italian. Visited Friday about 6pm, only one large party and one small party present. Seated promptly and advised of specials (without cost mentioned). Minimal but adequate wine list, ordered two by glass. Service was reasonable given light table load. Crusty Italian bread was served with olive oil, and balsamic vinegar on request. Our... More

We were a party of nine and made reservations for 6PM on a Friday night. Every one of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal--lobster ravioli was outstanding; prime rib cajun style was a special that evening and three of our group ordered it, all with different requests--no cajun spices, au jus, different degrees of doneness, etc. They were spot-on with each;...

This has to be the worst meal we have ever had. We were the first and only people in the restaurant, but it was a Tuesday night at 5pm so we weren't expecting a full place, the waitresses were just plain lazy. the spent the whole time we were there showing photos on their ipad talking about their latest camping...

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.
