Food never disappoints. Freshest of fish, pasta and please safe room for the yummy deserts. There is an inside room with fireplace for additional atmosphere.

This gem is located on a side street, about 2 blocks right off the main "Square" in downtown Sonoma. Quaint interior in an old historic building with a water feature in the outdoor patio area! The food was excellent and beautifully presented. Great friendly staff. Beer and wine bar only. Good wine selections. Good choice in Sonoma! :)

They were truly lovely at our dinner tonight! Food was excellent (I had veal parmigiana and my husband the tortellini) and a great price. The ambiance with the lights outside was beautiful and service great. I would definitely come back again and again!

We've been on the road for 2 weeks and eating in various restaurants the entire time. Without a doubt, this is the BEST restaurant we have experienced the entire trip. The setting around the pool and patio is exceptionally pleasant and the food was top notched. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone in the Napa & Sonoma area. It... More

A local 2nd generation family run restaurant with great food in an old inn setting. Excellent Italian and California cuisine. Try the pizza Napolitano. Good local wine list and moderate prices. Great service by long time dedicated staff.

Great local wines along with salads and pasta dishes on a pretty patio make for a pleasant dinner. I dropped the fifth star due to a persistent wasp surrounding our table, but other than that annoyance the place was filled with elegantly dressed patrons enjoying the good food.

We had 2 pizzas - straight from the oven. Both vegetarian (we are vegetarians) - they were lovely! One had eggplant and celery and the other had mozarella and pesto! We met the chef - who appeared to be passionate about the food he cooks and serves. A day after that we overheard a couple on our shuttle saying that... More

Very cute and romantic dinner spot in Sonoma-- walkable from the Sonoma Plaza area. If it's nice weather, I definitely recommend requesting to sit outside. Very cute with the fountain, lights and ivy around the outdoor seating area. We ordered a wood fire pizza and a bottle of wine and had a great time! The pizza was delicious.

Description
The DEPOT HOTEL RESTAURANT is a charming neighborhood restaurant located in an historic stone building just a block off the Plaza in Sonoma. Locals and visitors to the Wine Country enjoy casual Tuscan-inspired cuisine in the Vinoteca, in the cozy dining rooms, and on the terraces surrounding the shady Italian garden and reflection pool. Food is a passion at the DEPOT HOTEL RESTAURANT for the father and son Chef team--whether it is making house-made antipasti, or handmade pasta, or fresh ricotta. In addition to products made in-house, the Sonoma wine country around us offers an abundance of new artisanal products. The search for the best local products is a treasure hunt both chefs enjoy--whether from the coast, local farms, or local cheese makers. Come join us for a trattoria-style lunch or dinner...or just drop into our Vinoteca for informal small plates of antipasti and a glass of wine. Our focus is casual Italian comfort food--served in an informal Sonoma wine country atmosphere.
