I last ate here in 1984, when it was excellent. I am glad to say it still is. There is a slightly relaxed European feel. The service was great, but not too pushy. Great Italian food, with real pizzas, and decent wine. A very nice evening.

One of my fondest memories is coming here as a child and being wowed by the food and service. My Sicilian immigrant parents thought the world of this place, and that was (sigh) a tough audience. My mom was an exceptional cook, so if she liked it, well, how can you go wrong? I've visited many times over the years,... More

Twelve of us decided to eat out on this night to avoid cooking and the hassle of clean up. My salad was okay, fresh and there was plenty of it, and I had the polenta and portabello mushroom. It could have been good but was far too salty. My husband had pasta with seafood and it wasn't much to rave... More

What a great venue, historic and quaint. Excellent example of Nor Cal hospitality. Family style service was fun and the food was excellent as well. I will recommend this place to others and I will most certainly return when I'm in the area again.

The ambiance of the Union Hotel during the holidays is not to be missed. Their decorations are a work of art. Each Christmas tree is completely different. My wife's favorite thing is the gingerbread stars hanging from the ceiling in the café.

Returning to our wedding spot five years later was as magical now as it was on our wedding day. We were headed to have dinner at the Union Hotel for our anniversary, as we do every year since we had our reception there. We decided to stop by The Grove where we held the wedding. To our surprise there was... More

Been going here since I was a small child, and it never fails to fill me up with classic Italian food! The historic building lends to the ambience, along with the REAL Taper candles in Chianti Bottles on your table! On the price range side with the average menu item being $22, BUT you get Bread, Salad,band the most AMAZING... More

The Gonellas have run union hotel long enough that there is still a ring in the sidewalk outside to tie up your horse ! Again you can meet 2 or 3 generations of the family when you visit. Geared to family style dinners with soup, salad, anti-pasti, bread,and ravioli plus your entrée choice. Typical Italian dishes, and some really fine... More

My husband and I come here whenever we are in town. This is a great, casual restaurant. The house salad is wonderful and the bruschetta is my favorite. I get it every time I visit! Now they have coupons for free bruschetta with purchase of an entrée, our waitress gave us one! The portions are HUGE so keep that in... More
