Restaurant Rudy serves great
Restaurant Rudy serves great food and is my favorite place to eat on the Sonoma Square. Eggs Benedict were great and the fresh cooked pasta was also very delicious!

We ate outside in the back
We ate outside in the back in a small area which seats approximately 20 people. The service was quite friendly and helpful. My friend ordered the veggie burger which she liked. It came with fries which were outstanding, hot and crunchy. I had the pork encased in a pastry shell. It was a very good sized portion.

wonderful food - slow service
Restaurant Rudy has wonderful food. Amazing salads large enough to share. Main courses are delicious. The service is slow - even on a quiet night the wait between salad and entree was too long. Hopefully they will resolve this glitch because the food is amazing.

Eat here now!
Our party enjoyed four different main courses and each elicited a "wow". The portions were generous, the service friendly and efficient, the prices very reasonable. We all live in Sonoma and we are baffled by the absence of buzz around this place. Restaurant Rudy should be a very busy place, like Cafe La Haye, which at no more than a 100 paces, is no closer to the plaza. Hopefully this mystery soon resolves itself and Restaurant Rudy will stick around for a long time.

This is one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants and it has never disappointed us. This occasion was no different. The braised lamb shank was outstanding - prepared to perfection and delivered with great presentation. As always the service was excellent.

A great new restaurant in Sonoma!
Tired of the usual restaurants in Sonoma, we wanted to try something different without driving out of town and decided to try Restaurant Rudy. We had a fantastic dinner! The artichoke soup with a goat cheese fritter was exceptional! Our pasta dishes reminded us of our trips to Italy! Our entrees were unique and delicious! The service was slow, but when we looked into the open kitchen we saw why: Chef Rudy preparing all our food with only the help from a dishwasher! Once we realized this, we enjoyed our wine and conversation; the food was worth the wait. Recommendations: Have more than one beer on the menu. Serving bread would be nice. Desserts didn't match the food. We will certainly be back again & encourage Sonoma locals to go!

We've eaten at Rudy's countless times and each time the food has been exceptional and service always warm and friendly. Such as a pleasant change from the other options around the square. This was our first visit for lunch and we loved it. There was a great array of interesting takes on different sandwiches burgers - the porchetta was outstanding. Highly recommend stopping by for lunch or dinner!

Best in Sonoma
The chef, Rudy Mihal, is the best find in Sonoma since wine and gold. A craftsman, a genius, and all with a Sicilian flare. Arancini are worth going for alone. And not just pasta dishes. The real way to do this is to get a bunch of small plates so you can review his culinary range. Can't believe this spot isn't packed. But good for me. Got lots of special attention.

Genuine Italian Cuisine
This has to be the best and by far the tastiest meal that we have eaten in California. Where most places that we have eaten in the last 3 weeks concentrate on quantity this amazing restaurant concentrates on quality and at a very reasonable price -and the Chef is also a really nice guy. You must go here...it really is great.

Needed to have a space to spread out to do business whilst dining. The patio was quiet and we had an oversized space to enjoy a varied menu and accomplish our mission. Innovative offerings and accommodating staff.

Excellent as usual!
Limited menu, but the dishes are always fabulous; flavors are complex, layered, unexpected!

Restaurant Rudy has great food at fair prices. Nothing on the menu the night we were there was over $20. We had a couple of wines by the glass and they were generous pours and they waived our corkage fee. We started with their Romaine salad and then shared the generous small plate of meatballs made with beef, pork and pine nuts. Then we both had their Short Ribs which were heavenly - one of the best plates of them I have had and I order that dish a lot. Very good strong decaf coffee to top off a lovely evening. Both Bella and the rest of the staff were friendly and provided excellent service. Look up this place right off the Sonoma Plaza on Broadway. Worth a detour!
