Italian Eats, Pizza, and Soft Live Music

Peaceful restaurant with soothing local jazz musicians, lots of space, good food. One side has the bar and the other side hosts the piano and musicians. Downtown Guerneville.

I was pleasantly surprised. The interior is old school and I thought the food may be too. But the roasted beet salad with arugula and goat cheese was fresh and delicious. The mac n cheese was good; very creamy. The clam chowder was serviceable and the lemonata pizza was tasty. Friendly staff. Oh. And live music. A plus.

We stopped in for the music a drink and bite to eat. The music was great, the drinks were great, but that is where it stopped. ! do have to say that our server was young and only on the job for 4 days. Our drinks took way to long to arrive, our appetizers arrived even later, that is the... More

Husband and I both had small size lasagna. It was plenty for us along with their homemade bread sticks. Not super fancy and very comfortable. Seems to be frequented by locals as well . It was reasonably priced and the jazz music entertaining.

I was in the area and it was lunchtime, so I decided to go to Main Street Station aka Bistro. Great service, and amazing Oysters Rockefeller. The owner said she is able to get fresh oysters year round, and when I tasted the first one, I knew I would be back for the best oysters anywhere! I had their amazing... More

During 2 trips within 2 weeks to the area, we tried this place. Once for appetizers, bruschetta and meatball apps, not flavorful, really nothing we liked about it. Second trip went in and ordered Pizza, same experience with the food. The staff were very pleasant, and I will also note that we were traveling during off season for the area,... More

Food is just OK - nothing fancy, but priced as if it is ($10 for a wedge salad composed of 5 Romaine lettuce leaves, some bacon, sprinkling of onion and bleu cheese). Music on the two nights we visited was guitarists who thought they were more talented than they really were, singing louder than they should have. You can do... More
