“Best of the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Volpi's has the best Italian Food and other dishes. My Grandma came from Luccca, Italy so I know good Italian food. They have the best polenta ever and I have been to alot of restaurants. Their food is always consistent. They make you feel at home with their family style dinners. The old wine bottles with candles adorn your table. I could go on forever about Volpi's. Great bar! Great desserts! What I love is if you order family style, spumoni icecream is always included in your meal as well as the coffee. So go try them. You'll love it.

“Great clam chowder”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

A group of us ate here for a farewell lunch, and the favorite item for almost everybody was their clam chowder, only served on Fridays.

“Old style Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

This Petaluma landmark is great if you like family style Italian food. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. After dinner hang out in the bar and enjoy old Italian folk songs accompanied by an accordion.

“Unique”

Historical old bar and restaurant with lots of charm. Good food...not great but pricey. Great place for a party with good appetizers.

“MEMORABLE CESAR SALAD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

I made cesar salad last night and it brought back a memory of a delicious salad I enjoyed at Volpi's Restaurant last year. It was fresh, full of flavor and the best dressing I've had in a long time.
It was late afternoon, after the lunch crowd and before dinner folks arrived so it was very quiet but we had fine service and enjoyed a lovely luncheon before leaving to drive up the Pacific coast.
