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

It deserves its rating. The interior was charming, but the family style dinner was disappointing. The soup was uneatable, the antipasti consisted of two slices of packaged salami, the salad was wilted, the ravioli was good and the duck was under cooked. Although there were only two other tables occupied, the service was also lacking. The good old days at... More

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

Hello there, Thank you for you feedback about your experience. I'm sorry and disappointed to hear that you did not enjoy our minestrone soup. It is a staple here and we have people from all over Sonoma County that come here just for our soup. The owner, Evelyn Negri, makes it daily from scratch and even hand cuts our own... More

After a long day of wine tasting this was the perfect place to end our day. Everyone in our group enjoyed their food. It a nice place to unwind and talk about the day. I had the polenta and was able to substitute the bolognese sauce with marinara. It was very good. The wait staff could have been a little... More

We have been here 4 times over 40 years and it's still a great deal. The family dinner is what to get. Lots of food for a great price. Anthony was our waiter, very personal with great service.

What a surprise! Initially we had planned to stay in Bogeda Bay but most hotels were booked, so we changed our plans and went to Occidental instead. The receptionnist at the hotel gave some us tips for dinner options in town and we chose Italian food. It was fantastic. Best ever traditional, family food. Do yourself a favor and choose... More

This was an unexpected treat! This was the best fettuccine Alfredo and minestrone soup we have ever had. An Italian lady comes in early every morning to make a fresh batch of soup- I could have been happy with just the soup and bread, truly a treat! Great atmosphere and service.

We dined in the cavernous sports bar side (other side with table service serves food "family style"). Not bad. My ravioli was inconsistently warmed (some raviolo were cold). Kale salad was yummy and enormous. Good wine selection, as (for this area) should be expected.

I've been going to Negri's since I was a child. Fond memories don't change the fact that this restaurant and bar give the greatest service and best family style food within miles, maybe within northern California! If you walk away from Negri's hungry, it's your fault. The restaurant gives you the full 4 course Italian meal and the bar menu... More

If you're headed to the ocean from the Santa Rosa area and are getting hungry, you won't do much better for a sit down family style Italian meal. The food is always great and has that genuine home cooked flavor. They will even make pizza ... I know kids would prefer that to other choices. Lots of little shops near... More
