Stepping into Della Fattoria is like stepping into a charming European bakery. All sorts of exotic baked goods line the shelves along with delicious loaves of freshly baked bread. You can actually peek into the back and see the enormous kitchen where all the wizardry is done. The breakfast fare is excellent. As is the lunch. We love everything here.... More

One place that definitely doesn't match the hype. Two lunches produced either rude or indifferent service and mediocre chicken salad. Maybe they were having bad days and have improved, but other locals say they're still skating on their reputation. Petaluma has too many terrific restaurants to put up with this. Very disappointing.

Della Fattoria has several mouthwatering options on its menu, with all sandwiches using their delicious breads - which one can also buy to take home. My favorite is the croque-baton - the rich & sophisticated cousin of a grilled cheese sandwich, with french ham thinly sliced and cut into small squares & aged Gruyere - but the egg, tapenade &...

We visit our son and his family in Petaluma once or twice a year and morning coffee at Della Fattoria has become a daily ritual. Excellent espresso drinks and superlative baked goods (we love the chocolate croissants) are our usual fare, but the breakfast dishes and sandwiches we've tried are excellent as well. Besides great food, Della offers friendly service... More

Great place to get some excellent food. My first time. The fifth time for my wife. I had the Tuna Melt which was outragious and my wife had the chicken sandwich. The desserts looked amazing and hence the reason for the trip back.

Great local spot ! Take a loaf of Rosemary Meyer Lemon bread, makes the best toast. Casual, cozy seating with only a few private tables, but that ok for this kind of restaurant, everyone friendly in this town!

Get the tuna melt. Seriously, it's ridiculously good. Good coffee and bread too. Seating is mostly long tables and benches so there isn't much privacy. And it can get busy and noisy. You might have to find parking a couple of blocks away, but the walk through the downtown area is very pleasant.

We've actually eaten here twice. We were so impressed on our first visit that we returned six months later. The place has a cozy, informal atmosphere with a communal table or private seating, and the sandwiches are excellent. On our first visit, the owner was there and she checked in with us to see how we were enjoying the food.... More

Just the sort of cafe you'd expect in a neat town like Petaluma. Great food and lovely coffee. Nice atmosphere. Service a bit slow but very caring and personal.

Love the local small town feel of this place. The bowl lattes are awesome! My other faves are the "Stacy's salad", the biscuits, the bean spread, etc! The employees also help make this place a special spot. We love Jose and Cory! :)
