I understand if you don't have the resources to serve fresh food on a daily basis. It's a very small town and maybe not the easiest place to keep a fresh duck for example. But if this is the case, please don't over charge people for lower quality. My fiance and I went here for dinner. We did enjoy the... More

Hi Haley, First i would like to start out by saying that we actually have many resources in Occidental and around the Sonoma County area that we buy fresh products from. Our meat purveyors are local, our produce and seafood as well. Being in a small town in Sonoma County means we have access to a ton of fresh options... More

Dinner was good and portion was more than enough. Service wasn't the best but wasn't the worst either. Taste of food was better than good.

Whether you come for the classic Italian dining experience or to visit the beautifully remodeled bar (which features its own menu & 3 big screen TVs), Negri's does not disappoint. I've been coming here for years and I always leave happy.

This was ok. The caesar salad wasn't great, not horrible either. The clams and linguine was tasty and light. We didn't have the full dinners, as it sounded just too much.

The bar was fabulous and the food was excellent. I was amazed at the different drinks that they offered and how they were served. It is fun to go there with a group and the appetizers were excellent. Let them know ahead if it is a special occasion. Great time. Will go back again. Yum

If you like family style, food is always good and consistent, but nothing to write home about. We had the chicken marsala and the chicken cacciatore which were yummy and satisfying.

Maybe it is because I've eaten so many times at the Union Hotel, but this place pales in comparison. It smelled musty when we entered, and the food just wasn't all that inspiring. Sorry, but those are the facts.

Hi there, I would like to thank you for your feedback but you really didn't give us any? No details about what you ate, or how your service was. We like to think review sites are great for improving certain items but all you seemed to do was come on here to give another restaurant a promotion on our page.... More

Hi Tabscos, Thank you for your feedback. Would you kindly tell me what dishes you have tried that "vary in quality"? We like to think of ourselves as a great place for all ages.

I ordered the baked lasagna. It was decent. My lady ordered the minestrone soup. Was bland and tasteless for her. I tried same result. Overall ok experience, just expected more based on history of the place. Will go to Union next time in town.

Amanda N, Manager at Negri's Original Italian Restaurant, responded to this review

Hi Gelliott415, I'm disappointed to hear that your lasagna & soup was just ok? We make both in house with fresh ingredients. Our noodles in both dishes are also hand made in house. Our minestrone soup recipe dates back to the 1940's and we have so many people that love both our soup and lasagna and come back for it... More

Negri's is an old fashioned family style resturaunt, where 3 generations of the Negri Family will greet and serve you. We love the family, and have been eating here for 40 years. There are plenty of choices from inexpensive spaghetti and ravioli entrees, to full blown family style meals with anti-pasti, home made soup, ravioli, French bread, and apple fritters... More
