Every course was amazing. The service was outstanding. Every course was delicious! The cannoli could become an addiction. Be careful this restaurant is habit forming!

This place is one of our favorites! The food is ridiculously delicious and the wine is great. The place is in a strip mall and doesn't look like much from the outside but once you step inside you are transported to a small Italian village. We first came to this place 2 years ago with a party of 8 and... More

For a variety of reasons, we've been missing out on coming back to Mamma's. It had been stupidly long. We love Kim and Gaetano and this local gem tucked in the back of the shopping center. Kim greets us with long hugs and seats us where we want. Of course she escorts us back to the kitchen to say ciao... More

We went here last minute for dinner. They were accommodating to get us in given there was quite a line. The location is in a strip mall but the inside is warm and cozy. The service was engaged but distant at the same time. Food overall was very good with some dishes over powered (in a good way) with garlic... More

Our favorite Italian restaurant in Sonoma county. The food is consistently delicious...spectacular pastas, fish, and desserts. All the dishes are made in-house by Chef Gaetano Patrinostro from Sicily. The restaurant is cheerful (located in a nice little mall about five blocks from the Sonoma square--don't let the mall setting dissuade you from eating here) and usually packed with locals. The...

Amazing dinner! We went for my mom's 75th birthday with her grandkids too. Ten of us. Such a special server and chef! Made my mom very happy. Food was amazing! Crab pasta, eggplant etc all loved!

My husband and I came to this restaurant after a long day of wine tasting. What a fabulous dinner we had!!! Authentic italian food. Small quaint place with delicious food. I had the baked eggplant and my husband had the special Oso Bucco-both were outstanding. I would definitely return to this restaurant.

Don't let the location of the restaurant fool you. The food here is great. Located in a shopping strip, one might be hesitant to go in. But, don't miss it. The interior is small, and you definitely need reservations. I witnessed several couples being turned away. So, plan ahead! The food was delicious. We ordered the calamari for an appetizer.... More

We have been to Italy many times and savor the excellent food and wine so prevent throughout the country. While wine tasting in Sonoma we stumbled across this great family owned trattoria in a shopping center. Did not expect food of this quality in such a nondescript setting. Outstanding in all respects……If their restaurant were in Napa you would need... More

What an incredible find in a Sonoma strip shopping center. Beautiful and charming inside, inspired service. Probably the best veal parmigiana I've ever had, Caesar salad was fantastic, and my wife's sea bass was amazing. Nice little wine list as well. We'll definitely be going back during our annual trip to Sonoma.
