Our daughter wanted to eat quickly and get back to the motel to watch the final episode of Game of Thrones. Talulah's delivered for her! It was a Friday night, the restaurant looked full with two "reserved" tables but the staff were able to shuffle things around to fit us in. We made it clear that we wanted to eat... More

Dined on a Friday with family. We were seated promptly without a reservation. Menus, refreshments provided and orders taken well. The Ravioli Sampler and Chowder were good. While the Boneless Pork Rib had plenty of gravy with a heavy flavor, the meat itself wasn't as well seasoned as it could be as the center tasted plain. The Salmon Fillet was... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find such a nice dining experience in Sonora. You know..this is a 'gold rush' antique-ey town. So, I wasn't expecting this I guess. The decor is simple, but nice. We were greeted and led to our table by the owner. Very nice, and welcoming. Our server was super sweet and very attentive. We started with... More

Service was excellent and the food was delicious. Had dinner with 5 other family members, all adults, and we all had something different and were all pleased. Small restaurant but he had reservations so no problem. Probably the nicest restaurant in small town Sonora.

Simply one to skip based upon a 5 year comparison. Last time dining at this restaurant, the service was marginal, food poor and a very unenticing wine list. The main course of salmon wasn't as good as our at home dining on frozen salmon. Will try again in another 5 years

We have been here several times, never disappointed. Their bread is the best, entrees are all good - their Talulah's pasta is excellent, be warned its a little spicy.

We went for dinner without reservations, but were promptly seated. Good thing we eat early, because many people without reservations came in and were turned away. So, I strongly suggest you make reservations! We had the New York steak and a variety of Raviolis. Both dishes were excellent. They gave both a marinara and cheese sauce for the raviolis. The...

A popular pasta place in downtown Sonora. Dining room can get noisy. Menu is OK, but a bit pricy for pasta. Some people really like this place, but it seems average for me.

We had dinner here and were pleasantly surprised with the outstanding experience. We were greeted warmly by a host and shown to our table. Our waiter, Beau, provided outstanding service. He could provide detailed information about every dish and wine on the menu. The chicken stuffed with Gorgonzola was amazing. My salad was huge and so tasty. It was just... More
