Old Sonora has many restaurants but Talulah's seems to stand out as somewhat trendy with obvious, careful attention to the menu and to food preparation.

Just had an amazing lunch at this wonderful restaurant right in downtown Sonora. We were happy with everything we ordered. Tasty salad, delicious spaghetti and wonderful ravioli. The bread with garlic olive oil was amazing! Would we return? Without a doubt!

Although the food is great, what sets this place apart is the free bread and italian dipping oil that goes with it. Just amazing! I generally get one of their great salads or the vegetable lasagna. We haven't been in quite a while, but this is a great place.

Talulah's is one of our favorite restaurants in Sonora. The food is always great. Try the stuffed chicken breasts. They're yummy!

A wonderful place to dine. I have been here several times for dinner; had lunch two days ago! Small, inviting and yummy food!! If you love grilled cheese, try theirs. Like nothing you have ever tasted before. The meatball sandwich was also very yummy. The menu is perfect. Service is the terrific. Everything is prepared FRESH, HOT and DELICIOUS!

Like so many reviewers have stated this is one of the finer restaurants in Sonora. The food, service and general feel of this establishment certainly deserves its five stars. I would definitely eat there again.

After walking through downtown Sonora we stopped outside Talulah's where a very friendly local couple recommended the food before heading in to a table they'd reserved. Based on this friendly advice - and having seen the delicious menu - we decided to give it a go. The welcome inside was warm and we were quickly installed at a table. We... More

Wonderful shrimp louie, raviolis and spaghetti. Service is always top notch, and the facility is always clean and decorated nicely.

Went in on my own while in town for business and had a fabulous experience. Loved their wine selection. Had the ravioli sampler and every single ravioli was delicious. Had their lemon cake for dessert and it's the best lemon cake I've eaten. Service was quick and friendly.
