As a child, I ate here several times while on family vacations some 50 years ago. Eating here again brought back memories and created some new ones. Portions are huge, entrees come with minestrone soup, antipasto, and salad. All were tasty. The outdoor courtyard and grape arbor with real grapes was a nice upgrade. All in all a delightful dinner... More

After reading all of the reviews I can't believe the four of us got such bland dinners! The bread was wonderful and the clam chowder was a little different, but so good. But the entrees. #1 had spaghetti and meatballs but this was more like spag and meatloaf. Salty and weird. #2 had the pork etc filled ravioli. Chef Boy-ar-Dee... More

Just like the old Italian restaurants in San Francisco's North Beach. Out comes the soup pot, salad and big choice of pastas for the main. Service and atmosphere were very good.

We ate out on the patio on a lovely Sunday evening and were very pleased with almost everything. Our waitress was very busy but she still managed to spend some informative time with us, she was very knowledgeable about the local wines and steered us toward the Balleto Pinot Noir which was delicious. We each ordered a past entrée which... More

My husband and I came here for lunch after zip lining at Sonoma Canopy Tours. We received a certificate of completion which included a coupon for free bruschetta at the Union Hotel. We chose to sit outside on the patio quick felt so inviting. Herbs were growing all around and grape vines were overhead, I loved the rustic ambience. We... More

Had two evening meals on successive days with my grown-up family. Service was great and the food was good. This is not fine dining but we thoroughly enjoyed both meals and you certainly will not be left hungry. As visitors from the UK, we did not quite realise what family dinning implied. No complaints, just be prepared for very large... More

To be fair, we "drank" out lunch. We just stopped in for a cocktail in the middle of the afternoon and the place looks just like we left in somewhere around 1996. The bartender (a cheerful blond lady) poured generously and we amused ourselves by reading the numerous witty signs hanging all over the room.

I came with a party of 7 I was seated in a large open dining room with a 12 foot ceiling. The acoustics were horrible. Table conversations were difficult. The service was fair the portions were large. No one finished their food. The crowd seemed happy and cheerful. I was dissatisfied. Sorry to say

I grew up eating here, and while the menu has changed through the years, the food is still really good. Come with a big appetite, and save room for the wonderful pie.

We stopped in because Sonoma Canopy Tours gave us a coupon for the Bruschetta, which was very good. We stayed for the other pastas which were okay. What was lovely was the patio, the drinks, the salad, the atmosphere.

Thank freeandgoing
