Went there for lunch. Good, quick Italian with large portions. I had their daily special, a chicken panini sandwich with pesto pasta. Both were good but big enough for two people.

Friday 8/5/16--- we had no lunch plans and were starving. We asked our taster from Ledson, Chris, where we should eat. He said this place. He was dead on. Awesome service and even better food.

Our first stop in Sonoma based on a friend's recommendation. So glad we did! Order deli style and friendly servers bring food to your table. Fresh and homemade. Sandwiches on focaccia were divine. Waitress found out it was my birthday and brought out the best tiramisu. Thank you!

Fun dining experience. When you want to find the best food, always ask the locals where they eat - this is one they frequent and for good reason.

Cafe Citti makes the very best garlicky Caesar salad topped with smoked chicken. The portion is generous and the taste delicious, if you like garlic! Their tiramisu is the best in our area, we think. It's a non-pretentious place with a lovely patio

I had the best salad here. What a great very casual place - recommended by locals. You order at the counter and then sit and wait at your table. Not fancy, just really good food.

this restaurant is one of the best for fresh Italian food plus they have pizza and broasted chicken. The wines are Italian varietals and they have draft beers. You order of the board then sit and the rest of the service is brought to your table.
