Farm-to-table
Della Fattoria Cafe is now open for dinner and accepting reservations three nights a week; Thursday, Friday and Saturday 5:30pm-9pm. Reservations for daily breakfast, lunch and brunch on the weekend are not necessary or needed.

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.

There were 5 in my party for dinner. In general, the food was good, but poorly proportioned and as a result—overpriced. My wife and I ordered the seared salmon which came with a good assessment of vegetables. Unfortunately the quantity of salmon was about the size of a small fish stick. For $28, there should have been three times that amount. The melon salad was good, as was the apple braid tart for dessert.

I live in SR and just discovered this fabulous restaurant and bakery last Sunday for brunch and loved everything about it so much I went back during the week for dinner. Both experiences were amazing. The decor and ambience are like nowhere else and the food is magnificent! The staff is well-trained and friendly. I couldn't ask for more. 10 stars!

Della Fattoria is one of our favorite restaurants! Love the food, the atmosphere and everything about it! My current favorite dish is fish of the day which was halibut Saturday night. The preparation is unusual and includes some pork belly. Delicious!

Always great to see Miles at the front of the house.

My bride and I LOVED the melon soup. It was both visually and palate- appealing.

I had a sausage pizza. It was a little bigger than I planned on.

Sitting on the wood bench along the wall no cushions was not comfortable for a fit 62 yr old and fit 30 yr old. Great atmosphere, great bread, not noisy, but if you know how to cook not exceptional. Their bakery a better choice.

Don't be fooled by simple menu, the fruit/produce is executed with passion. pea fritter, onion tarte, spring vegetable risotto, and a rib eye steak fritos were well complemented by good service and wine. Look forward to returning when in area. Also, their bread comes from their own bakery that turns out many more wonderful tasty delights.

There were 6 of us. We shared 3 apps, each had a main & shared 1 of each of the 4 desserts.
Everything was outstanding & timed well so we had a nice long & lovely time.No rushing.
We brought family from out of town & they were of course impressed right off the bat by the amazing & fun ambiance but more importantly by the food.
A very happy time was had by all.
Thank you Della Fattoria & bravo chef

Della Fattoria is among the best dining experiences in the North Bay. My dinner last Thursday night was superb in every way. The seasonal halibut was seared perfectly. I sampled three wines, a Bandol Rose, a delicious Chablis and a beautiful Gamay from Italy.

The service staff at Della is friendly, knowledgeable and attentive.

Della has the best lunch in Sonoma Valley and the in-house bakery is amazing.

This used to be one of my favorite places for breakfast and now it is one of my favorite places for dinner! We ordered the melon salad and it was refreshing and savory but looked so pretty I almost felt bad eating it. The other starter we had was the fritter and I can only say: Yum! I ordered the Fish of the day and it was grilled beautifully but I really loved the sides; seasonal and fresh. Then finally, we had dessert, which you must get because bread and pastry are their jam. We ordered an apple struddle that was so delicious, I had to peek in the kitchen to see if there was a little German Grandma hovering over the stove, turning out tasty treats. Want to give a shout out to the wait staff too as they were super sweet and gracious. They made us feel right at home. Thanks Guys for making us feel so special.

Made my reservation on Open Table. A busy Saturday night in Petaluma. Parked far and walked. Showed up and the place was closed because it looks like it’s under construction. Called and got no one. They shouldn’t be taking reservations during a remodel. Needless to say I won’t be returning because showing up to a closed restaurant on a date doesn’t go over well.

Miles was able to add one more person to our reservation, even though the restaurant was hosting
a big group. He acquired birthday cupcakes from the bakery and went out of his way to be sure
we had the perfect celebration. We had to wait a bit due to the big party, and the chef sent
over a tart! Our server was the consumate professional and so very personable! We were there
for 3 hours and I must admit the wood bench seating was not the greatest :) But overall, the
experience could not have been better. Everyone loved thier food (especially the filet and the
fresh fish). Did I mention they serve their bakery bread and butter? Loved it!

Love the new restaurant, their decor is stunning and we had an excellent meal. Go early and you can get a window seat. We were there at 5:50 when they opened and it was not crowded yet at all.
Overall, a very lovely experience and we will return.

The food is great. I've had breakfast, brunch & lunch several times before. This was the first time I ate dinner there. The food was as good as I expected. The waiter was good but it took forever to get our food and it wasn't even that busy. Apparently they gave my husband's order to some other table by mistake so they had to make another entree which was making my husband irritable. It was at least an hour after we sat down that we finally got served. They did comp us some wine for the inconvenience though. I also thought it was unusually bright in there for a 7:30 pm seating. When I complained quietly to my husband someone must have heard because then they turned the lights down bit. I would go again but I don't think my husband will.

This is one of my favorite restaurants for brunch, but my first time eating there for dinner. The decor is even prettier at night! Our dinner was fantastic. We were seated right away at a shared long table with plenty of room on either side. The wine list was reasonable and the food was delicious. I had a vegetarian meal that was very satisfying. One of our group ordered the catch of the day. She told us the next day that she just wanted to go back and eat it again it was so good! We were dining with someone who must eat gluten free and there were several choices. it would be nice if they served a gluten free bread, because at Della it's all about the bread!! The service were good, not super fast, but we were not in a hurry, so it didn't matter. The owner came over and chatted with us. She was gracious and welcoming. I will put Della in the rotation!

I was disappointed having eaten there at lunch and breakfast in the old location. My husband's chicken was overseasoned and my tagliatelle with clams came out lukewarm and had to be sent back.Big disappointment was no non-alcoholic beer.I just feel like the dinners aren't up to the standard set in the past.Hope you are able to eventually serve food on the patio.Service was good.
