“Not fancy,just good food”
Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

As the title says if your looking for dress up Sonoma fine dining you are looking in the wrong place. However, if your looking for good food at reasonale Sonoma prices then its the ticket.
Got a sandwhich on focacia bread with sides, boy was it good.
The setup is a bit different (but hey its California) you walk up to the counter and place your order, then go sit at a table, the waitress then brings you the food and drinks and then afterwards brings you the check. Excellent.

“Not bad”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Overall, not a bad place. Not fancy at all. Food is pretty generic Italian food done well. Great place to go if you are in Sonoma and want a lunch that is fast, good and doesn't break the bank.

“Good food, fast service”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Cafe Citti is easy to find, right off Highway 12 in Kenwood as you drive through the most beautiful part of the Valley of the Moon. This is a casual place, good to bring children or large groups. It is usually noisy and bustling, reasonably priced, and has a friendly, casual atmosphere. You order your food at the counter, deli style. Cafe Citti does not match the fine dining menu at the restaurants in Glen Ellen, but it definitely has its advantages.

“Small deli feal fancy restaurant taste.”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

Cute little restaurant with an intial feal of a deli. Order at the counter and find a seet to get ready for a culinary delite. The sandwiches were good. The authentic ceasar salad with chunks of anchovy and the gnochi were outstanding. Quaint atmosphere overlooking a winery accross the street. Price was reasonable, worth the drive.

“best raviolli ever.....”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

the place is not fancy, you go to the counter to order your food, they have basic tables inside and outside in a quiet patio area,
prices were reasonable and service was friendly and quick,
Most importantly it was the best lunch , best food I had during our 6 days in the wine district,
It would be good for families , solo travellers. friends ,
not a place for romantic dinner unless you are looking for something relaxed
