We tried this restaurant on Saturday night. It was OK, but not really up to the reviews we'd read. Located in a small strip mall area West of downtown, the food was decent though the ambiance left something to be desired. Tables were tiny, packed cheek to jowl. They were pretty busy with three large parties, so service was a... More

Excellent food, presented attractively. But not much ambiance in a small, crowded room, filled with some loud people. Tables are tiny. The kind of size one would expect in a European restaurant. We had to scoot ours over a few inches so as not to be a part of the conversation of the young lovers next to us. Note to... More

So happy we found this on TripAdvisor. This restaurant is small, but the food is outstanding. Our meal was amazing, starting with the Caprese salad and the Antipasti. I had the Spaghetti Carbonara, which was the best I ever had, and my husband had Veal Parmigiana, which was also fabulous. Can't wait until we return to the area next year,... More

Having just moved back to California after living in Italy, we were desperate to find authentic Italian food. Luckily, Mamma Tanino's, is the real deal. The owners, gave us an extremely warm welcome, in Italian, (molto grazie!), complete with moist pavola on the house. The pasta with seafood was super fresh, as was my wife's homemade soup that hit the... More

Wonderful, fresh Italian cuisine. Specials are numerous, so don't stick to the menu. The food is simply delicious and the setting feels like Italy, too. Don't miss this cozy ristorante!

My wife and I enjoyed our dinner here. We had calamari as an appetizer and it was really good. I had the Veal Parm and it was delicious. My wife had a pasta that was the special and it was OK but nothing special

Wow, the food was great. I lived in Italy and return often. The food was like being back. Just excellent. The staff was warm and friendly. The atmosphere is not great given the strip mall location, and the service was a bit slow. But the food made it all worthwhile!

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
