You Decide: What's Sonoma's Best Italian Restaurant?

Where do you go for antipasti, pasta, secondi and dolce? Cast your vote in this new regular Patch feature, "Best of..."


This week we launch a new regular feature on Patch, a “Best of” series. Every week we’ll ask you the readers to cast your vote for your favorite place, business, school, activity, the subject of the week – and it will be local, right here in Sonoma.

This week we start it off with one of our favorite topics: Italian restaurants. No, we’re not talking pizza parlors or delis – though we may circle back to those later – but the kind of restaurants where you can enjoy the kind of authentic Italian cooking both your parents and your children can enjoy, or maybe even where you can have a romantic dinner for two.

Make your choice below in our Poll. If you don’t see your favorite Italian restaurant, maybe it’s in a neighboring city, Petaluma, Rohnert Park or Napa. (If it is, vote for it on that Patch!) If it’s not here, leave a comment and tell us what we’ve missed.

Here's the list to remind you; you can vote below.


You can find each these restaurants in the Patch directory – click on the Places tab on the top of every page, and then Food & Dining, then Restaurants. Once you find your favorite restaurant, you can leave a review, post a picture or even a video.

Voting ends  at 9 a.m. on Friday; we’ll announce the winner later that day.

“This poll is not scientific, and it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined based on poll results, comments on this page and on ratings and reviews on Patch Places.

Hint: The ratings and reviews count extra.

So vote here and leave a comment about your choice for Sonoma's Best Italian Restaurant.

Well I'm not going to vote on an incomplete list. Where's the Depot Hotel? You can't choose a "best of Sonoma" if all the choices aren't there.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Depot Hotel was listed on the poll – but we inadvertently left it off the list in the article. We've fixed this, so feel free to vote away.

With Restaurant Week on the horizon, it is a great time to try some of the places you have not tried before.

Irene, when is Restaurant Week??? Sounds yummy & exciting!
Irene Morgan March 03, 2012 at 02:01 AM
Chondra, this year it is from February 27 to March 4. You need to check to be sure your favorite restaurant is participating...just call them and ask what their restaurant week menu is before you make the reservation. The only problem may be that since it is popular, it may be hard to get reservations.
