You will enjoy this fine dining restaurant from beginning to end... They are always friendly and attentive. The food is delicious and always have a few specials to make their menu more interesting. Full bar and great wine list! A must when your in Petaluma.

Delicious food and nice ambience. Finding parking was a bit of challenge. But once you do find one it's great!

This restaurant is our kids' "special occasion" choice every time and we often go here for our "date nights"! Really consistently delicious food with terrific wait staff. :-)

Thnx to Tyler for great service & recommendations; the Duck Salad, Spaghetti Carbonara & Short Rib/HorseradishCrust & Asparagus were outstanding. The Primotivo/Zinfandel comparisons were delicious. A great place any day but particularly Monday's with fewer options. Charming location fun walk before or after meal in Petaluma.

My husband and I had a wonderful date night at Risibisi. It is a small restaurant with a great lively atmosphere, and the owner is usually present. Our salads very very good, and the pasta and gnocchi (house made)with wild boar ragu and pasta (also made in house) bolognese were fantastic. I usually like to try different things each time...

Wow, amazing service, amazing food. The meatballs were SO good! Steak, salad... I don't think you could go wrong with this menu. We sat at the bar and at a romantic dinner, a rarity for a bar top meal. Loved it.

I hadn't heard too much about this place, but was very surprised and pleased. We went with a large group and took the back room, gave us plenty of privacy, the execution for delivering and the quality of food to a large group was great. I look forward to going back

We did not have reservations on a Saturday night but they managed to accommodate us. We had their meatballs, grilled salmon special and fettuccine Allan bolognese. Food was delicious. We check out this place after being featured in Check Please.

We had 5 people and were seated in the back room that we didn't even know existed, Service was superb. A great birthday treat for my 69th birthday.

The meal was incredible. Caesar salad and Gnocchi with boar. I order this every time. Its delicious. My husband had the homemade lasagna. They make their own pasta and it was soooo good. We love this place. Great wine selection and worth every cent.
