Della Fattoria is the kind of place that can quickly
become an obsession. The family-owned Bakery and
Café is a favorite local hangout for its world-class menu
sourced from the freshest produce of local farmers,
ranchers, dairies, coffee roasters and wineries. Everything on the menu is delicious, sophisticated but causual. Service
is warm, professional and personal. Housed in an historic downtown building, the newly remodeled Café space is furnished with handmade tables and benches, antique chandeliers and overstuffed chairs and couches making it even harder to leave.

This is great food in what is probably the most excitingly decorated dining room in a town full of great restaurants. We also like it because they didn't try to squeeze every possible table in that they could, so you're not right on top of the people sitting near you. And that also makes for a somewhat quieter experience.
We celebrated my daughters birthday and all enjoyed our meals. The menu is not extensive but has something for everyone. The pork chop was the best.
There is nothing on Open Table's "What would you recommend this restaurant for?" that quite fits this place. All we can say is that it feels homey in a really fun way. The open room with high ceilings is decorated top to bottom with outlandish furnishings from thrift stores and salvage places so that each table feels intimate and unique. It's a great place just to experience, and then there is the food. The menu pretty much has something to suit most tastes, so that vegetarians, fishetarians and Paleo diet fanatics will feel comfortable with the range of choices. Service is great. We recommend the Linguine with Clams as a stellar dish. Service is great.
Stepping into Della, from the cold and smoky air was like stepping into another world. The lighting and ambience were the ticket to sanity for us that night.
Not on the menu but they made me hot lemon water. Thank you. Have the chocolate mousse, the salmon, and the charcuterie plate!
Very accommodating. They found us a table in just a few minutes when we wandered in at their busiest, and with no reservation. They food was outstanding. Wish we lived closer and could visit often.
We love this place. Our only sadness is that on the last two dining occasions they were out of an item. Previously, they were out of the (awesome) short ribs. On our last visit they were out of the pork chop. Our reservations were at 7:30.....
Great food and great ambiance. Recommend as a restaurant.
It's a little pricey, so I will have to hold this one for very special occasions. It feels "up-scale" from the decor to the menu to the attentive service. Put it on my Decade Birthday List.
Once again my husband and I joined friends for dinner at Della’s. We are never disappointed when we dine here be it breakfast, lunch or dinner but Saturday night was over the top. We all ordered the porterhouse for 2 which came with salad, spinach with mushrooms, the most scrumptious onion rings and duchess potatoes. The steak was cooked perfectly to our wishes and the rest of the meal was beyond delicious. For dessert we had lemon creme with berries and topped with delicate pieces of meringue which was to die for. I can’t say enough about this fabulous restaurant and their marvelous chef and Stanley who oversees the staff and greets all diners with a smile. We are so fortunate to have a restaurant of this caliber in Petaluma. Kathleen Weber and her husband and daughter have created such an amazing venue. Are you listening Michelin?
I wish I could give Della Fattoria more than 5 stars! This restaurant is amazing. I was there with a group of 5 girlfriends who were in town for a running race. We had the most amazing meals..pork chops, short ribs, salmon. Everything was so delicious and fresh. The only thing better than the food was the incredibly gracious staff who attended to our every need. If you are lucky enough to be near by, this restaurant is a must. Thank you so much!
The atmosphere we very elegant, yet friendly. Food was good and a good value. I thought it was just the right place for my wife and me.
A Petaluma gem - fabulous service, ambiance, food and fun decor. The dinner menu selections are well thought out and prepared and our service by Kelly was outstanding. The only thing to improve is their wine list. Need additional local Sonoma County offerings.
We went for a Saturday night date and had a great time-the food was delicious and interesting-the server was attentive to our every need-the ambiance is fun and beautiful-we will definitely go back and we are thinking of hosting a holiday dinner there
Everyone was very professional and friendly at the same time.
The only thing I did not enjoy was being seated at a "community" table. It would seem the same thing could be accomplished with four four-tops so that they could be split if needed or left as one big table. The size would be the same as the table in the front of the restaurant.
I very much enjoyed my dinner. Their recipe for short ribs was something I would only dream about. They were perfect for me. Our server was outstanding. If I could have given a 4 1/2 star I would have though, just because of my dinner salad. It was so salty, that every time I took a bite, I made a sour face. It was strange and I’ve never had anything like it. BUT others must like it or it wouldn’t still be on the menu. Idk, just felt it could have been more creative like the rest of their food and beverages. I gave them 5 stars because it was just a simple salad - but my entre was a master creation worthy of five stars. At least that’s what MY tastebuds thought! Yummn
My husband and I and our friends really had a wonderful time and meal at Della Fattoria. Everything was perfect. A trip back if only for the onion rings (which are like no other that I have experienced!) would be worth it.
What a treat. We thoroughly enjoyed an anniversary dinner here and would recommend it highly. The presentation was wonderful, ample portion size and so tasty. We will definitely go back and not wait for a special occasion.
Ambiance is fabulous. Service was spot on. Wonderful wine and farm fresh, cooked to perfection meals. Absolutely delicious! A perfect place for a dinner for two or a group celebration of any kind.
Brought the wrong wine, no apologies from waitress, just "details slip through the cracks". Waitress didnt take any time to offer suggestions or take Qs from menu. Soup was ordinary. Salmon overcooked. Burger was puny. Dinner is soooo overated. Stick to the bakery and brunch.
Limited menu but well executed food, cool eclectic decor farm to table menu. Short rib with faro, pork chop with seared polenta cake. Well done by thoughtful kitchen. However way too much time between courses. Our 3 course meal took almost 2 and a half hours. Either waitstaff or kitchen need to tighten it up a bit.
We took my mon for her 89th birthday this past Saturday night. She's very picky and has high standards (being from S F. originally). By far this was a total home run. Everywhere I looked I fancied something else eclectic and pleasing to the eye.
The Ambiance at Della Fattoria is exceptionally beautiful. We received excellent service and all of our meals were terrific. We will definitely return. Thank you.
It is nice to see how Della Fattoria has grown up from a breakfast/lunch spot into a full dinner restaurant. The vibe is eclectic and fun yet quite elegant. The service was very friendly and attentive.
For starters, you are served an amuse bouche which sets the bar for rest of the dinner. The best entree is the porterhouse steak for two. Generous portions and a great mix of sides.
Dessert was the only disappointing part of the meal. The chocolate cake was dry and the olive oil cake was an extremely small serving and not anything special. The pavlova was quite unusual in its deconstructed presentation but the sheets of meringue were soggy.
But overall it is worth the trip!
Delicious but despite an early reservation and few customers waited WAY too long for meals, and desserts order was "lost". They at least "comped" them.
2nd visit, both times very long waits. Maybe they need to hire more staff?
Very disappointed! The salad was very salty and our entree came warm....not hot. It was very tasty but not anywhere near hot. The manager did compensate our dessert after complaining. Another thing that was different was the fact that we ordered a bottle of wine and the waitress poured our first glass and then removed the bottle from our table and set it on a table that was in the middle of the room and we had to ask her to refill our glasses. Never have seen that before. Was surprised to see that bread was not placed on the table since Della is known for their great bread which is always delicious!!!
What a great space. We had excellent service and the food was equally as good. Will Dine here again.
My wife and I went for our anniversary and we had a great experience! Our food was perfect, our waitress (Sarah) was wonderful and we would definitely come back and refer to our friends & family.
Della Fattoria has been a fixture of the Petaluma food scene for a few years. First with prize-winning artisan breads and pastries, then the cafe and now the expanded space. The food is very, very good with frequently very subtle and sometimes surprising ingredients. Certainly worth a visit.
My new favorite place in Petaluma, loved it. Everything was absolutely delicious, inventive and varied menu of very fresh ingredients, good service, manager checked on us to see if everything was okay, the ambiance is wonderful, and the decor is inviting and gorgeous! I have no idea who decorated this place, but it is so beautiful and unique, especially loved the amazing lighting. Also this is one of the few busy places that you can actually have a conversation and hear your dinner companions, noise level was ok compared to most restaurants. Highly recommend.
Wow the bakery was always great... And this is a great addition to the downtown Petaluma dining scene. We had the porterhouse steak for two cooked to perfection. The fig and panzanella salads were awesome as well
It was a super busy night with a few large parties. We were amazed at how organized they were at attending and serving the parties and us! Impressive. The quality of the food and and service is always good. I wish the menu was a little larger. I had the chicken dish 3 wks before, I wanted fish but am not a Cod fan, didn’t want Steak so my only other option was Creamy Polenta with veggies. The Polenta was delicious but the veggies were a little underwhelming. I am. It crazy about crunchy potatoes and the flavor of the vegetables was bland. I would still go back. Just wish the menu was either larger or it was changed up more often.
So delicious and excellent service! And gorgeous decor. Truly a delight.
The food was great but the tables up against the wall look at a blank white wall. The place is huge and you think they could have come up with a better use of the space.
Wonderful surprise -- thoughtful ambience, tasteful decor, fresh & expertly crafted
menu -- civilized! We were able to converse, never felt rushed by the waiting staff.
Outstanding food with great ambiance. The team is well coordinated and many people pitch in to make your dining experience exceptional. Greatly exceeded or expectations and we will be visiting again!
Still getting their sea legs. Ran out of several entrees on a Saturday night.
This review app wants to know, specifically, what I'd recommend about this restaurant. They didn't have a category to match my feelings. I'd say this restaurant doesn't serve food, per se. They offer heartfelt creations, soulfully executed by cooks that really care, and served by people who want to make your experience as good as it could possibly be.
Eating there made me feel proud - that there is still a group of people dedicated to excellence - in my home town.
My husband and I enjoyed a lovely dinner: flavorful ling cod, prosecco, and perfect sorbet. Our waiter, Miles, was helpful in choosing the dessert, which was the perfect finishing taste. The owner stopped by our table and was welcoming and delightful.
Very good but small portions--left restaurant still hungry
A wonderful dining experience, good food, fair pricing, excellent service!
