We only rate this as our second fave because we had steak in Healdsburg that was to die for and here we did Pasta. So you could say a tie for first. Our dishes were wonderful but better yet was the burrata and prosciutto plate....More

Had a fabulous meal with friends at this restaurant. Top-notch service. Smooth, professional and keen attention to detail. The gigantic steak, spaghetti and clam, shrimp and sausage pasta dish were all amazing. Panna cotta for dessert and Irish coffees topped off the evening

121 miles; 2h drive without traffic. Check your favorite GPS map regarding taking 880 or 280 to 101N. On 101N near Petaluma it is common to have some traffic M-F afternoon-evening. Enjoy.
