This restaurant has been around forever but it still hasn't lost its passion for authentic Italian food or excellent service. We had the good fortune of being served by Noel--who was nothing short of amazing! But truly, the whole staff was excellent--from the moment we entered the restaurant to the time we left, we felt our every need was accommodated.... More

Fantastic food, incredible atmosphere and friendly staff. I frequent this restaurant as the meals are always consistant and the prices are great. Dennis is an incredible chef and his kitchen is buzzing with talent. Don't miss out.

Never a bad meal. The best restaurant in town. Not one restaurant even comes close. The owners down to the busboys are all quality

Can be crowded and a little noisy, but the food here is very consistent and always very good. All the ingredients are local, highlighting what's fresh and seasonal. It's our 'go to' restaurant in Petaluma for any/all occasions.

I drive my Mom from Sonoma to Petaluma to Kaiser on a regular basis. I try to schedule her appointments or lab work so that we can go to lunch after. Yesterday I decided to go into downtown Petaluma (not exactly the direction home) and eat at Cucina Paradiso. We had a fabulous lunch! I had the penne with sausage... More
