“Wonderful restaurant in downtown Petaluma”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

This is a favorite of locals. Always busy. Always great service. Always great food. Always a great experience. This was my third visit and it did not disappoint. Veal scaloppine, shrimp fettuccine and chicken were all well prepared with great flavor. Quality of food and preparation was outstanding. This is a family run restaurant with seasoned staff. Highly recommended

“Great creative food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

I've never had a bad meal here. I think it's one of the best resturants in Petaluma. They have this great bread with this fabulous garlic olive oil dipping sauce that I could make a meal out of this.
It is quite busy so it's best to make reservations. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great meal.

“Best homemade ravioli ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

I have loved this restaurant for about 10 years. The new location in central Petaluma is great to showcase this wonderful place.
I love to come for lunch since the food is so delicious and it can become an early dinner.
Fresh is the rule, and creative is the chef. Owned by a darling couple, he makes Shitaki ravioli when the mushrooms are available.
This is great for business, or most romantic occasion.
You will love it.

“Petaluma Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

There are many good restaurants in Petaluma. Cucina Paradiso is one of the best. We've tried almost everything they have on the regular menu (and many of their specials), and all are very good. Three items of special note.

The gorgonzola gnocchi is one of the best we've ever had,and beats gnocchi we had on a recent month long trip to Italy.

The veal scaloppini with mushrooms, I consider to be the best item on the menu (although my son-in-law contends that the beef medallions in truffle sauce is the best).

And they make a great tiramisu!

The staff is friendly and efficient. All in all , a great dining experience for either lunch or dinner.
