Driving up or down Route 1 (PCH) north of Point Reyes, you pass thru the small village of Valley Ford. Don't blink or you'll miss it. If it happens to be dinner time, don't miss Dinucci's - a family-style Italian restaurant that provides even the most ravenous diner with plenty to eat at a reasonable price. The decor hasn't been...

I love joints and this old road house is just plain fun. I have been going here since I was a boy and while it is not quite as good as it used to be, the pan fried fresh Tomales Bay Oysters are still wonderful. You still get antipasta, salad, pasta and soup with every meal. I find that it... More

This place has a fun *history*, but for the quality of food, for what they charge- is WAY over priced.. No WOW factor here...

Once upon a time, before Sonoma County became a slightly gentrified version of Marin County mashed up with a bit of Napa County nouveau riche, it was filled with the most amazing restaurants, all of which had great character and excellent food. Sonoma County was founded, in part, by Swiss-Italian immigrants, and Dinucci's in Valley Ford is part of that... More

The first impression, entering through a noisy, smelly bar, was almost enough to turn around and try somewhere else. However, the old and infancy dining room had cheerful and attentive wait staff. The soup starter course was excellent. We should have just had soup and bread. That would have been a four star meal. However, we had the regular plate... More

Prix fixe dinners for around $20.00 includes minestrone salad and entre. Plenty of very good food with enough to take home. Locals are here and it fills up fast on weekends.

All I can say is YUM! 5 of us stopped here for dinner after paddling nearby. We arrived right at 5pm and good thing we did. About 15 minutes after being seated the place was full! Prices are reasonable considering you get a 6 course meal with each entree. I had the Calamari and it was the best I've had.... More

Well, make sure you have reservations ahead of time....we waited 1.25 hours to be seated, despite being told it would be 40 minutes; another 10 minutes for the plate of carrots and celery to be delivered, another hour for entree, and finally finished at 915, the only one of 4 parties left in the whole restaurant. Other people were tired... More

The restaurant is interesting and the staff are very friendly. It took a while to get to the main meal (four starters to contend with). Make sure you are very hungry before choosing to dine here. The quality of the food was very good.

Clearly not fancy but it was just what we were looking for. Casual and the pasta was delicious. Service was good and they're very generous. If you want more minestrone soup you can have more! If we lived in the area we'd be back sooner than later. Perfect for families.
