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.

My wife and I recently spent a week in Sonoma and this was by far the best restaurant we visited. The food was amazing! I had the gnocchi, which had the most delicious pasta sauce I have ever had in the tomato demi. And I say that having eaten at many of the best, and most authentic, Italian restaurants in... More

I visited with my wife having studied local restaurants. We loved it. It is casual but the food was amazing which is nice after a hard day of wine tasting ;). I had the Branzino and my wife had the sole. We agreed mine was better but the sole was still very good. Good server (sorry I forgot your name).... More

The food is incredible- lovely polenta with a mushroom ragu, steak and zabalogne. The wait staff is personable and friendly and the restaurant is casual and welcoming.

I hosted a birthday celebration here in March 2016 and it was fabulous from beginning to end. My guests had many choices of entrees in addition to starters and a dessert. Don't miss the mushroom and truffle polenta appetizer. It's a signature dish that will keep you coming back time and again.

We usually eat Italian at another popular place on the square, but this place was recommended to try. It's in the Sonoma Market Shopping Center kinda across from Safeway, the decor is so so, kind of family charm. But the food is amazing and so was the service. I ordered the special, Rack of Lamb and my wife ordered Katrina's... More

This restaurant is in the Sonoma Market Shopping Center. Do not let this stop you from having a good meal. The food is good and the menu offer a good selection. The service including the wife hostess and the husband chef are the home-town feel of Sonoma. They also have a good wine list. A good find!!!

I have been to this restaurant a few times before, but not for a number of years and I was excited to visit because of such a long absence. We arrived on time and were instantly seated, our servant (Corin) was very pleasant and engaging. She listed their daily specials and we reviewed the menu and made our choices. We... More
