I hadn't heard too much about this place, but was very surprised and pleased. We went with a large group and took the back room, gave us plenty of privacy, the execution for delivering and the quality of food to a large group was great. I look forward to going back

We did not have reservations on a Saturday night but they managed to accommodate us. We had their meatballs, grilled salmon special and fettuccine Allan bolognese. Food was delicious. We check out this place after being featured in Check Please.

We had 5 people and were seated in the back room that we didn't even know existed, Service was superb. A great birthday treat for my 69th birthday.

The meal was incredible. Caesar salad and Gnocchi with boar. I order this every time. Its delicious. My husband had the homemade lasagna. They make their own pasta and it was soooo good. We love this place. Great wine selection and worth every cent.

A friend and I had lunch here over the Christmas holiday, and really enjoyed it. Instead of bread, they serve focaccia, made in house, that is just delicious. We both had the spaghetti with clams and loved it ($14.95). We each had a glass of Chalk Hill Chardonnay, which was wonderful, even at $14/glass. Service is good, our waiter wasn't... More

Great price point for Italian food. The Cabernet Liberated was excellent and paired well with the antipasto for two. The portions were very generous for the pasta. My husband like the spaghetti carbonara, however he said it was heavy on the pasta and not much sauce. I had the buccataini Amatriciama it was very tasty.

While looking for a good restaurant in downtown petaluma, we came across Risibisi. It had great reviews and we could find a table right away. I was looking for Cioppino but unfortunately it's not there in the regular menu. The friendly wait staff pointed at another similar dish. The menu was small as was expected and they had a big...

We've had both dinner and lunch here. Food and service is excellent. Traditional Italian with a bit of updating and local flare. Full bar.

My husband and I stopped on this place on a whim and it turned out to be very good. It was fairly late so we split a spinach salad and their daily fish special which was salmon. Both were extremely fresh, beautifully presented, well prepared and very tasty (though a bit light on the salt for our taste). Lot's of... More
