    Food was not impressive, many menu items were not available. Service was very poor - friendly, but not attentive with significant delays at every stage. Surprised by being confronted at the reception to have every person in the party sanitize their hands. Not an unreasonable request, but the first time it has ever happened to me at a restaurant, there was no notice of this requirement and the request was pretty blunt and somewhat rude IMO. No reason to return to this restaurant.

    This is really a nice restaurant, tucked away in Forsestville. The food is real Italian, very flavorful and unique. This is not your run-of-the-mill Sonoma County restaurant. A wine list modest in size but excellent in quality, both domestic and Italian. This owner really knows what he is doing.

    We had a delicious trout in a sweet outdoor patio that was dog friendly. The staff was warm and frazzled, likely made more scattered by their credit care machine going down. We’d been warned by friends who’d dined there the night before so, although the staff forgot to mention this we were ready and unbothered. We were still grateful for the ambiance, best effort by the staff, and the mix of standout dishes and passable ones. That said given the service and food we would have expected a slightly lower price point. But for a Sunday night out this did the job and happy to support a local business, if not bending ober backwards to go back.

    I had reserved an outdoor table for four but were seated indoors, our host claiming there was not one available. We were then seated at an indoor table right next to the kitchen/serving counter, which was noisy. We had a very nice server however, who did a great job of explaining their extensive wine list, which included a number of local wineries. We ordered a couple of the spring salad plates and the roasted brussel sprouts to share. For the main plates, we ordered the halibut, trout, and the Tuscan maccheroni. The seafood was amazingly fresh, and cooked to perfection. The maccheroni had a robust, almost beef stew-like thick sauce which was delicious.

    Our experience started with a reservation for 4, when we arrived we were asked to use cleanser on our hands prior to being seated, no problem. As we made our way to check the patio status two more groups of patrons arrived and were taken to tables without being asked to use the cleanser, after we were seated at least 3 more groups came in and also were seated without having to sanitize their hands as well as receiving their meals prior to ours which put us in a position of feeling singled out and showed a lack of communication amongst the staff. Once seated inside, the patio was busier than we preferred, our waitress offered us water. We waited for over 20 min before being checked on again and having our orders taken, it was another 30 min before our side dishes arrived which were fabulous tasting but the amount served was not worth the $12.50 each price. The 3 main courses arrived, the quail which was absolutely fantastic and worth the price the other 2 meals the yellow fin tuna and carbenero while both cooked to absolute perfection were both quite skimpy in serving size for the cost of each plate. We also had to go to the Chef and ask for parmesan cheese and more water since our waitress was MIA. Overall other than the consistency of the food from my last visit to this one was spot on, unfortunately the service and the high cost and small serving sizes brought our experience down to such a low that I doubt we will be back.

    A bit disappointed. I had read the website and was do excited to try this authentic Italian cuisine. At first, I was amazed by the atmosphere and ambiance. Great location, quiet, beautiful decor. The food was ok but not whoa!! The prices are reasonable for Sonoma. I give them a huge kudo for having the opportunity (very rare in Sonoma) to order an $8 glass of wine. BUT the pour was so small I had to order 2 so I take my kudo back! The Tiramisu was not good. I think they tried to be too creative and the result was disappointing. The bread was stale So would not really recommend.

    Being Italian I tend to be picky and more judgmental regarding Italian food often times not eating Italian out because of it. We wanted to give it a shot, but it wasn’t for us. We wouldn’t not go back if invited, but we won’t be going back on our own. Lots of servers, but young and not well trained ie say things like “I don’t know” instead of let me check on this for you. Wine selection is great! Food is mediocre, but has the right idea and ingredients are there to make it exceptional. More or less food quality does not match the price. We had a one starter, pasta, entree, and two glasses of wine for $150. We often spend more, so price isn’t a problem unless it doesn’t match quality for us. Ambiance out back is lovely. Lots of potential at this restaurant. No photos, restaurant requests no phone use, and charges BOH (back of house) 9% fee on top of requested tip for server. Ciao! Buona fortuna.

    This is our 3rd time eating here and we really love it. The italian menu is well thought out and the execution is flawless. Their pastas are all freshly made with great flavors. We have also tried 3 different mains and they were all great. The outdoor dining on the back patio is really lovely. Highly recommended. Milt

    Last Sunday we read an article about chef Francesco Torre in Edible Marin and Wine Country magazine. The article reminded us we needed to get back to Canneti Roadhouse. So we did. We had the tasting menu. Everything was delicious from soup shooter thru cake. The main course of roasted Italian hen was a high point for me. Good wine-by-the-glass choices, reasonably priced. The two servers got slammed by a rush of customers around 8:00 but performed admirably. The decor is eclectic; who - other than chef Francesco - puts vintage motorcycles in a restaurant? Many of our fellow diners were locals. If we lived in Forestville, we'd eat here a lot! Hate to complain about anything at Canneti, but my chair gave me a sore back after an hour (we ate outside). Don't want to end this with a complaint so according to the article the chef loves steak and mac and cheese, which are on the menu, so it's a good bet these will be delicious, too.

    Mother’s Day is a tough day to evaluate a dining experience— that being said food was delicious but the service was slow. They could have used an extra dish/wait person. Nice ambience with a “cozy” feel to setting.

    Food was wonderful, flavorful, creative and well-priced. Poached pears with Tallegio, Quail with a fresh pea salad. But the service was absolutely awful even by Covid standards. We never received the wine we ordered to go with the main course, and sat for over 20 minutes after eating without a singe waiter coming to the outside patio that had several tables of diners waiting. They weren't that busy, had 3 waiters for less than half full restaurant. I never got a chance to order dessert because the waiter was non-existent. We had to pay the 9% back kitchen required service tip (guess they did do the good cooking).

    We were a bit disappointed at this visit. The food was it's usual good authentic Italian food served hot and sufficient. But service was a bit slow. Seated at about 630PM our dinner didn't arrive for an hour after we had our appetizer course that was finished just shy of 7PM. Needless to say the kitchen and our server completely forgot about our table for 4. People who came in well after us were served and gone by the time we received our dinner. The pasta was a bit overcooked to the table's opinion, but overall the food was good. It's just that the experience was much less than we anticipated from our visit last fall. Too bad, this is a convenient stop in wine country. The dessert Tiramisu was unexciting, contrived and unattractive. Cannetti has alot of potential, I just wish the service was consistent.

    Chef Francesco greeted us and made our experience a fabulous evening - first time visiting with these friends since before Covid. Food was outstanding - taleggio cheese with poached pear salad, “tuna Chianti,” and mixed greens salad, Maccharoni with beef chuck and pork shoulder, trout, and small hen. White chocolate mousse for dessert was tasty; tiramisu a bit different than the “normal” one might expect at another local restaurant. Chef served us throughout the evening, a delight in many ways.
