Still great after all these years.

Great atmosphere and wonderful food. Very homey and comfortable. Used to frequent this place when I was going to college and they have expanded the men so you can order family style or just the items you want. Great service too.

So old school you can feel the family vibe back a hundred years. They understand the gem they have so they've wisely changed very little since their Italian immigrant ancestors stared the place pre-1925. The food is terrific & plentiful, old time red sauce Italian. Wonderful pasta dishes, signature bruschetta, generous salads, hearty pizzas and complimentary minestrone that will make... More

We tend to avoid this kind of old-style Italian-American restaurant, but my wife used to go here regularly and remembered it fondly so we went there (with a visitor from Italy). The Good: The atmosphere (especially on the patio) was great, and the server was friendly and cheerful. The food came reasonably quickly. The draft beer was good. The Bad:... More

We made advance reservations for dinner due to the size of our party and for the fact that we wanted to eat here July 3rd on the holiday weekend. Part of our party arrived late but they seated the ones who were on time anyway, and got them started with cocktails. We also had a member in our party who... More

This was a very special Father's Day for me because my daughter had just adopted two children. The day was capped off by great dinner at the Union Hotel. As always, the family atmosphere and fantastic Italian food surpassed my expatiations. They even gave the kids raw pizza dough to play with.

Family style dining, i.e., long table with room for at least nine, maybe more. Parts of the meal are in serve-yourself bowls which kids like. Option for outdoor dining at tables for 4 or 5 (or intimate enough for two). I live nearby and have eaten here for forty+ years... never feel rushed. Light food served in the bar. Pizza... More

And the service was excellent... Next time I'm up there, I'll go right back. A great celebration of my first birthday in my eighth decade!

We stayed a couple of nights in Guerneville while on vacation and while out looking at various sights along the Russian River we struck up a conversation with a man and his wife and they recommended the Union Hotel Restaurant. It was quite an interesting drive that our GPS took us on to get there but it was well worth... More

We received a free bruschetta appetizer from Sonoma Canopy tours after our zip line with them. The bar is pretty dicey, but we sat on the patio which was nice. The Waitress was very pleasant even though we only ordered drinks with our free app! The bruschetta was good. This is an old time Italian restaurant that serves family style... More
