this is a no frills kind of place. food was good but nothing special. Any restaurant that serves an iceberg lettuce kind of salad sets the tone for the meal. It is what it is, but nothing too special

Wonderful selection, and great food! We enjoyed lunch and was very face from the time we walked in the door. This is a great place for a nice little stop in the middle of the valley.

I don't know what everyone is raving about. The lasagne was downright gross. The pasta was like baby food and the sauce tasted like it came out of a can. The meat in the sauce was the size of bebes. Caesar salad is about the dressing and there was very little of it, so I basically got a plate of... More

Nice and consistent homemade Italian food. Everyone can mix and match to their own heart's desire. The sauces are flavorful and different for different dishes (Yay!). We've eaten here many times, both inside and out on the patio. We haven't had a bad experience yet, and our friends seem to love it as well.

You order at the counter, then sit down and they bring your food to you. Everything was very fresh and tasty. They make their own focaccia on site. The kids enjoyed some fusilli pasta with butter/parm. Sandwiches and pizza were also great. Would definitely go back.

This little Italian joint is a wonderful hole in the wall. A great place to get dress food that will soak up all the vino and booze while wine tasting. The bolognese is good home comfort food. The caesar salad is garlicky and refreshing. Place is great for lunch between the vineyards.

Café Citti is a small funky place in Kenwood that has all the right ingredients to be that secret little gem of an eatery. Sloping floor in an old building, order at the counter, fireplace, day-gone-by ambiance. My wife and I had a pretty good meal at Café Citti last time we stopped by and decided to eat there again....

Stopped by here for lunch after visiting Jack London State Park and had a fantastic Italian lunch. The place is rather small so it can fill up quickly from folks wandering the wineries. A real nice, not pretentious, restaurant with an informal flair. Not to mention, the food was great.

Four of us were wine tasting in Sonoma and happened upon this place. Casual inside, order at the counter and the food is brought to you. Usually not our kind of place. However, this was a great surprise. The atmosphere was warm and friendly and the food delicious. It was like eating in your Italian grandmother's kitchen. Hard to believe... More
