“Second visit was as good as the first!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

We returned to Canneti's a year later and just loved it!! Delicious food and outstanding service. We ate outside in the patio area and it was beautiful. The food is great and the chef is very personable. This restaurant is a gem in the Sonoma area.

“Beautiful food, lovely ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

This restaurant is a gem in Sonoma wine country. We ate at Canneti's Roadhouse last night and sat outside on the lovely patio in back under a fig tree and strings of little white lights. It was a lovely, charming ambience. My husband and I split several dishes, including a chard pie, taglietelle with grilled chanterelles in parchment paper, skewered rainbow trout with beautiful vegetable accompaniments, petrale sole over purple gnocchi, and had just a little room left for a delicious orange custard dessert. The ingredients are local and fresh and put together with extraordinary imagination and artistry. The chef is from Tuscany and the food is sophisticated Italian. The pasta is all made in house, and so is the bread and many other items. The wine list features local Sonoma County wines and excellent Italian wines; I think just about all are available by the glass as well as by the bottle.

“Outstanding dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

My wife and I dined at Canneti's in early June after repeated recommendations by several guests of the Raford Inn and also by the Raford's owners. My wife had the duck-filled ravioli and I had the wild boar ragout (the boar shot, apparently, as he trundled through one of the local vineyards). Both dishes were remarkably good, as was the melted mozzarella with crispy anchovies that we had as an appetizer. Chef Francesco Torre recommended wines for each entre that complimented the dishes quite nicely. And in addition to the professional attention of our server, he also stopped by our table to answer any questions we may have had.
We ate in the front of the restaurant--simply decorated and with enough space between tables so that you can easily converse with your dinner companions. We will eat here again on return visits to the area.

“Delicious and artistic cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

This restaurant was recommended by our hosts at the Raford Inn and it did not disappoint. We ate outdoors in back which was pleasant. I had an innovative batter-covered trout over farro and it was delicious. My husband loved his chicken and when the dessert arrived, he said "another piece of art". The staff were friendly and welcoming.

“A Taste of Tuscany in Forestville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

This was a return visit for my wife and I, accompanied by friends who were first-timers. We ordered a variety of dishes for our mid-afternoon visit, including wild King Salmon, pizza, Maccheroni and White Pork Ragu' -- all superb. If you are anywhere close to Forestville, this is your stop.

Delightful patio seating

Hint -- if you can get the fresh mozzarella, it's a must -- but Franchesco makes it only when a specific curd is available.
