We'd seen the website, studying the menu and read the reviews. We thought the food was ok but not as good as we were hoping. The hummus was ok. Nothing stood out. Great location and lovely atmosphere.

We had the much touted lasagna and enjoyed, but did find it a bit salty....this could be from the pre- sprinkled parmesan on top. I guess one could ask them not to put it on when ordering....excellent service and a great location on the towns lovely central square. Plenty of meter parking on the street....

Flavor has consistently great food, in particular their Italian offerings - the best lasagna on the planet! You can taste the wine in the ragu layered in very thin pasta with a variety of cheeses that maintain their individuality! Not the thick pasta red tomato sauce variety at all. House made ravioli are pillows of air with tasty fillings and the gnocchi are light and rich at the same time.

We had read several great reviews about Flavor & they all meet our expectations. Service was good, nice décor. We all experienced something different: spicy tofu (for the vegan in the family) grilled lamb (the carnivore), butternut ravioli (the vegetarian), & chicken fettuccine. It was nice not to have to wait; plenty of seating. Flavor is located in the square so it was nice to be able to walk around after we cleaned our plates. Highly recommend.

We arrived in plenty of time to walk around Santa Rosa and work out where we wanted to eat. This place stood out both for choice and value. The food is good quality Italian prepared as good Italian food should be - simple and tasty. I had probably the best lasagne I have ever eaten and my other half was able to have what she wanted with gluten free pasta.
The staff were happy for us just to drink tap water with our meal as I was driving and were very attentive. They apologised for the meal taking longer than usual to cook due to the rice pasta which we fully understood.
Great location overlooking the square with a west facing aspect perfect for the end of day sun when you sit outside.
Great meal , staff and location
