A terrific find through TripAdvisor. Authentic Italian. Food was excellent. Preparation and presentation very well done. Good selection of wines. Service was tops, including the chef's wife who assisted waitress. Very friendly, family restaurant. Cannoli homemade and terrific! Anyone visiting Sonoma must dine here.

This is off the beaten path and has absolutely wonderful food. The husband and wife owners are always on top of things--he is the chef and she is front of the house. Always the best, freshest pasta. Feels like you are in their home and he is cooking just for you!

We made a reservation based on the reviews and had a pleasant walk from our B & B (An Inn 2 Remember). We were looking forward to a great Italian meal to go along with all the other wonderful culinary experiences we had while in Sonoma/Napa. The strip mall location wasn't quite what we expected, but we were warmly greeted... More

If you are looking for quality food at reasonable prices with good service, this is it. Probably as good or better than our other Sonoma favorite Della Santina. Can be a little crowded, but that is the only negative we could find.

Thank you Trip Advisor for recommending this hidden gem. Not easy to find, tucked away in the corner of a local shopping centre - took us 2 circuits of the car park to find it. But glad we did. Excellent friendly service. We ate from the 'specials - tender scallops wrapped in pancetta and the sole in white wine and... More

Went here based on TripAdvisor reviews and it was worth the trip, it is off the beaten path in Sonoma (not on the main square) but worth the 4 extra blocks. The food is very reasonably prices and SO good. The pasta was fresh and the portion was HUGE. The staff was very friendly and made great recommendations and was... More

Real, true, epic Italian food. Owned by a fabulous couple - this is the real deal. Yes, there is an authentic Italian man back there cooking your food - and he is busting his butt at it, seriously, take a peek in the kitchen. See? I told you so! I'm not one for sappy silly over the top overly positive... More

My husband and I both had the orichete with seafood. There was an abundance of mussels, scampi, and scallops. The red sauce was light and flavorful. We shared a fruit tart for desert. Delicious!

Ignore the location (a little strip mall a few blocks from the Square), ignore the fact that it can be noisy if there is a big group dining....just focus on how authentic the food is,enjoy the freshest ingredients, and close your eyes and be transported to a small cafe in Florence. This is now my FAVORITE restaurant in Sonoma!

This hidden gem is located several blocks from the main Plaza. The food is wonderful, fresh and beautifully prepared. We had six in our group and saw and tasted a variety of items. The veal was beautiful and a quality that is not served in all restaurants. One man in our group had the 14 oz. rib steak and it... More
