A Word From a Happy Patron

I remember loving their pasta alfredo the first time I was here, and I was craving pasta that night, so I convinced my boyfriend he was craving pizza so that we had a reason to venture into downtown Santa Rosa and come here.We shared the pasta alfredo with chicken, the award-winning Prima pizza, and as our starter the meatballs gorgonzola. Our server also came out with some of their homemade garlic rolls.The pasta alfredo was, again, amazing - the sauce was very creamy and rich, unlike the kind you buy out of a jar, and the pasta was cooked well. My only complaint is that it had too few pieces of chicken (we paid an extra $3 to add chicken). The Prima pizza was delicious - the crust was cooked perfectly, it was loaded with veggies, and my favorite part about it was the artichokes (I have never sought out pizzas with artichokes in them...until now!). The meatballs gorgonzola was probably my least favorite during our meal that night, mostly because they were very salty. I couldn't tell if it was the meatballs or the gorgonzola; nevertheless, I probably wouldn't recommend it. Lastly, the garlic rolls were delicious. I know they have them on the menu, but I think they're complimentary because our server continued to re-fill our basket and we were never charged.Our bill was a bit more expensive than we anticipated, but my boyfriend and I both came out feeling satisfied with our meal and even had some leftovers to eat the next day. The regular, smaller portions on the dinner menu are small (relative to American portions) but just right, so don't come here expecting to do some heavy carb-loading unless you plan to order the large family size for your pasta and pizza.I highly recommend this place for eating out with family or a significant other. Downstairs seating is limited, but they have an upstairs dining area as well. The restaurant is located in a charming little section of downtown Santa Rosa, so you can take a stroll while you wait for your food to digest before heading home.Excellent Italian food with that home-style Italian feel!

Customer Testimonials

“If you’re looking for Italian, this is your place…”

If you’re looking for Italian, this is your place. Dinner is fun, loud, and social, but lunch can be a bit more calm. Reservations are important because everyone in town knows that this is the spot for Italian, so getting a table on the weekend is tough without a reservation.
