First time visit with my son and family. Enjoyed an early dinner and sat in the front door dining room. The restaurant was like an neighborhood Italian Restaurant from the 30's....red tablecloths, candles, lots of accordian's from many years ago on the walls. Our server was very nice and great with the picky orders of our grandchildren. Three of us... More

This your typical pseudo-Italian restaurant where all the sauces are made in big vats in the morning and the pasta is overcooked. Your pasta will be swimming in sauce, and if that's what you think is great Italian food, good for you, you'll be happy. But if you are looking for real Italian, or even good Italian-American (yes, there is... More

A fabulous historic family owned Italian restaurant, that was just delightful. Good food, fine friendly service staff very warm & welcoming. Had appetizers and followed to main course and had wonderful spumoni ice cream to finish off a wonderful dinner. Fabulous! If visiting Petaluma this is a must try restaurant!

We took out form this classic Italian restaurant, which I understand hosts an accordian player some evenings-sorry to miss that! There was certainly enough food in each portion for 2 dinners, so don't over-order unless you want leftovers, which would be great!

We enjoyed our evening here, and not simply because of the food, which was very nice. I think Volpi's is built on its personality, which is friendly, a little eccentric, and a lot of fun. To begin, we were seated by the windows, in a large room full of flags hanging from the ceiling. We asked our waitress and she... More

Restaurant has been here forever. It's got decent Italian food, but there is much better in town that is less expensive.

A great little place that has a lot of history. Friends suggested this place who had frequented this place years and years ago. Food was very good, service was excellent, but the acoustics were terrible. We had a very difficult time visiting because of the noise. do not sit in the larger room next to the main entry.

Very good! Great for large family gathering! I love the old world bar in the back! Italian Accordion player is a nice touch! Clam appetizer was good, Gnocchi, Lobster ravioli all good! We were not sure why there was a rock in our Bowl of clams, but we had a good laugh about it!

This is a place with a lot of history and the food is good too. The place has been around since the 20's. My dad use to bring me down here in the 60's. There is a hidden away bar in the back that was used during the proabition years that is definitely something to check out. Came here for... More
