It's the quintessential Sonoma restaurant. Grapevines hang overhead in their outdoor seating area, which also has convenient stand heaters to ward off the slight Evening chill. FABULOUS GNOCCHI...and a great, caper-laden Veal Piccata. Have a great glass of wine, chosen from their ample and varied list and then eat what goes great with any good wine....good italian food...enjoy!

Can't comment on dinner but we just had lunch here and it was delicious. We sat in their partially covered patio and it felt like a good combo of Italy meeting California. Had antipasti plate and a pork sandwich, with their only rose offering--an excellent one from local Benziger winery. Just off Sonoma square.

Many people suggested we go here. The food was fabulous and the outdoor grotto was a gem. The owner goes out of his way to greet you and the service was outstanding!

Do not be fooled by the nice courtyard. The service here is absolutely terrible. My partner and I made a reservation and noted that it was our 5 year anniversary. Upon arrival, there was 3 waiters and a senior waiter/manager standing around, they turned and looked at us and then turned straight around again. We just stood there until they... More

I don't know what has happened to this restaurant. I went there in the past and enjoyed the food. However, I went there today with two other people and the food was awful. I had cannellini beans with sausage. The beans were tasteless with no sauce, and the sausage was bland. It looked like someone had thrown a can of... More

First of all, I discovered this gem of Sonoma because of a celebrity chef I know from Seattle: Bryan-David Scott. While in Sonoma my husband and I enjoyed a private tasting of luxury coffees prepared by world famous Bryan-David Scott. When my husband mentioned that we were traveling to San Francisco to eat at a fine Italian restaurant Bryan-David told... More

Perfect romantic cozy dining experience in the outdoor courtyard with a grapevine overhead. I'm a NY girl and pretty fussy with my food and I wanted spaghetti last night. We shared as an app and Mamma Mia!! The wines were delicious as was my sole dinner and hubby's veal super tender. This place feels like home like so many restaurants... More

While there is a joyful abundance of delicious farm-to-table options that surround Sonoma Plaza, Della Santina's Trattoria is a blissful Italian cuisine retreat. The outdoor patio area is a romantic get-away from the busy town square. The food meets the high standards of this 'Italian guy from New York City" and the service was prompt, helpful and super-courteous. Mangia!

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary on September 16th at Della Santinas. We were seated in the outdoor patio next to a fountain, it couldn't have been more romantic. Rob Della Santina waited on us personally and presented us with complimentary glasses of Prosecco. The food was unbelievable!! We started with the Antipasto Misto, an array of Italian... More

We visited Della Santina's out first night in Sonoma and were not disappointed. We didn't have a reservation but we're quickly seated on a Monday evening. The wine list is extensive with a good range of wines by the glass, bottle with some very special bottles-domestic and imported. I had 2 specials on the menu, the Panzanella salad with beefsteak...
