The food and atmosphere here is fantastic. Be prepared for a crowd. Street parking can be very difficult, but the experience is worth it.

The best Italian food you'll find anywhere. The gnocchi in particular is to die for, if they ever make the bacon infused version again, just order it. You won't regret it. The grilled fresh calamari, white cannellini beans on arugula salad with vinaigrette dressing is just amazing. Not fried. You'll be surprised calamari can be like this! The Rigatoni in a light tomato cream sauce is another constant favorite.

A full bar. Great waiters with real character. Lots of room so every when they're crazy busy they'll probably find you a space.

Just go, really, you'll thank me.

Four friends and I met here for the first time, and we were blown away by the spectacular food, the outstanding and attentive service, and the display of awards in the front window. Several friends had driven far to come here, and swore they would do so again.

My wife and I had an outstanding lunchtime dining experience with a dear friend at the Cucina, and look forward to doing it again sometime soon! I had the "gnochetti", and my wife and our friend each had the "risotto" dish. All three of our meals were excetional, in taste, preparation, and quantity. The service was equally superior from our waiter and the busboy.

The room was a bit cozy and thus a tad bit noisy--but that has become the norm for nicer dining establishments these days. The Cucina is quite easy to find and right in the heart of Petaluma's nicer shops and entertainment. The price was certainly right as well--the complete tab including a very nice bottle of wine from their extensive selection was just over $100.
