A Word From a Happy Patron

Kelly B says:

This place deserves every single star, and let me tell you why.I was looking for a place to take my mom for mother's day and I wanted it to be super special. I read the yelp reviews on this place and decided to make a reservation.I asked if I could bring a cake and flowers ahead of time and have the cake served at dessert, to which they said yes, awesome.That day, i hustled by after work and ran by home to pick up the cake and flowers before my mom got home from her weekend trip.To my surprise, the bike race was going on downtown and I couldn't get to railroad square. I ended up parking at the end of 5th street and having to walk all the way there- cake and flowers in hand.By the time I got there the cake was a bit melted- the side had brushed up against the container and the frosting was smashed- I was so mad!I walked in and asked if they could fix it up for me, and they told me they would and that they would be able to set the flowers on the table for me and everything. I was so relieved!I brought my mom and dad to the restaurant and the place was super busy and we were seated right away. The noise level is loud and the space small and quaint.The flowers were set at the center of the table and they looked beautiful.Dinner went very well- i had the boar sausage and mushroom pasta which was AMAZING. The staff was fantastic and friendly and attentive for how busy they were.Dessert is what really made the evening perfect. They brought the cake out (all fixed up of course) with a candle in it and surprised my mom- who had NO idea that I had bought a cake for her. When she blew out the candle the brought it back out on plates for us, dressed up with powdered sugar and dessert moscato.I can't say enough how fantastic this place was. I had a vision of wanting to make this the perfect Mother's Day and they helped me make it happen. The wait-staff was great, but Brenda was the one who helped me out the most.It was perfect and I am so happy that I went here and I will continue to recommend this place as well as take everyone here!!

Customer Testimonials

“Definitely the best Italian food I have ever had!”

My wife and I came out for a visit to wine country from Tallahassee, FL the week of this past Thanksgiving and stayed in Santa Rosa. First off, what a great town/area! I just had to write and tell you how wonderful your restaurant is! From the ambiance to the quality and flavor of the food. It literally blew me away. It is definitely the best Italian food I have ever had!

I know one thing, when we come back to wine country, we are coming to your place again for dinner!
