Restaurant was very comfortable and lay back despite the high quality of food. Not the biggest place but very well situated. Food was excellent, fresh and cooked to perfection. Full bar, as well and great wine list. Very enjoyable dining experience.
Always a good choice. Reasonably priced, excellent service and delicious choices.
Wonderful meal . Terrific variety of flavors and colors among pasta dishes, appetizers, entrees and salads . Charming, attentive service offering sound menu advice. Highly recommended. And for the level of quality, Risibisi is a great value as well. Below, from upper left, the splendid, rich gnocchi with wild boar ragout; the perfect spaghetti carbonara with pancetta and duck egg; an imaginative seasonal pumpkin ravioli with chard; a best-of-class orecchiette with sweet peppers and fennel pork sausage; and a light, delightful ensalata mista alongside a pair of the killer fluffy pork and ricotta meatballs. Lots of sharing. Dessert was out of the question.
We go to Risibisi for every special occasion. The food is so good; the service is excellent and it's a comfortable place to dine. Love Risibisi!
Started off well. Meatball appetizers were good, though some skillet browning good make them a less bland texture. Prosciutto brushetta was good. But, two of us had the spaghetti vongole, served with shell on plate. Firstly, there was a lot of sand on the plate!! Anytime you get this type of dish, a little grit can happen. But, this was ridiculous! Both plates. Full of sand! And, secondly, my plate had a sizable rock mixed in with the clams! I showed it to the waiter and suggested he show it to the kitchen. I didn't ask for a thing. But this is where I felt compelled to write the review. They did nothing! No one came out to talk to us. They didn't say "we're sorry for this unfortunate oversight." They did not acknowledge it in anyway! That's inexcusable.
ALWAYS ENJOY DINING AT RIBISI'S-EXCELLENT MENU-ALWAYS LOTS OF SPECIALS-VERY FRIENDLY SERVICE:)
Excellent wine, food and service in a pleasant atmosphere. What more could one want.
A little tight between the tables, makes it hard to have a private conversation.
Fabulous food, fabulous service, highly recommend!
Favorite restaurant, hands down!
Everything was remarkable. Highly recommended. Authentic Italian fine dining, without putting on aires.
Delightful surprise to find this neighborhood gem in Petaluma. The main dining room is vibrant and cheerful with locals, while the back room is very quiet and romantic for special occasions. Not a large wine list, but selection is very good. Local fare.
We had a wonderful meal. Locally sourced, produced in-house, excellent dishes. The wild boar gnocchi was absolutely outstanding, and the service was extremely caring. Thank you for a lovely afternoon.
Love this place! Food is great, cocktails are fun and delicious. Great wine list and the food is amazing. Great ambiance, as well. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Great space, unique tables and food was great! The homemade pasta was fantastic and the leftovers were delicious.
Enjoyed the gnocchi with pesto and the penne puttanesca. Nice portion size, great flavors and great service. Will definitely return again.
We had a nice dinner Sat eve of the HOT Labor Day weekend. The service was excellent. Owner was very conscience of the heat and his guest. The food prepared very well. Salmon was cooked to perfection, Gnocci very nice and shrimp ravioli, very light and tasty.
Food wa s OK to really good. One pasta dish was bland and the salmon was very tasty. Cocktails were outstanding but expensive.
Had a wonderful meal at Risibisi with my fiancee, the duck salad was nice and crisp and the pasta was phenomenal, al dente to perfection. Service was very attentive without being overbearing as well, would highly recommend for a good meal - they definitely deserve their Bib Gourmand from the Michelin guide.
Risibisi is always good. Great friendly service. We had risotto with fresh salmon and peas.
It was truly delicious.
We got lucky finding this place on a Sunday evening. Everything was wonderful for our special occasion dinner.
Always good food. Particularly good service every time.
Food was tasty. I had the Gnocchi Wild Boar. The gnocchi were super soft and pillowy and the raging tasted fresh. The service felt a little slow (drinks can after the salads arrived). Not sure of the backup was the bar or the service. Sat in the back room so the noise was a good level. Definitely not as loud as the front room where you enter. Would recommend to others!
What a find, had a fabulous dinner. Very pleasant experience.
This was a wonderful find. The atmosphere is lively and the food and service were excellent. Loved it!
We order three appetizer and one came within 5 minutes (carpaccio) and the other two (bruschetta and calamari) took almost 15 minutes to get to the table
But food was great- service was good
Well run place
Food was delicious and service was great. We will definitely return for another occasion.
We went for our anniversary. We have been there many times and the food never disappoints. Rustic decor to go with the fine Italian cuisine. Highly recommend.
We go to Risibisi for every occasion. Everything is wonderful there. The service is great; the food is awesome!
Loved the fresh pasta and vegetables. Excellent flavors and ambiance. will definitely return soon
We dined at Risibisi to celebrate two birthdays. Our group included vegetarians and meat & potato people. The menu included a nice variety of creative dishes for both. All enjoyed their meal.
We also enjoyed wine, cocktails and dessert. The beverage and dessert menus also had a nice variety.
I had the Lemon Drop and for dessert the Pistachio Creme Brule, both quite yummy
Fun, romantic, warm reception. Nice people, really good prep and enjoyable. It was date night for my wife and I. I speak Italian and had the chance to converse with the owner. I can tell if the food is authentic. Yes. Definitely. That all made the evening enjoyable. We will be back. Besides the great food, a happy atmosphere and a nice wine list.
The staff was efficient, friendly and professional. Very comfortable atmosphere, outdoor seating available. Wine list is impressive and staff extremely knowledgeable. The food is well-thought, creative, locally sourced and delicious. We enjoyed every dish and were unable to partake in their dessert offerings - which was as delightful an offering as the dinner menu!
Great food. We all had the special salmon dinner and it was delicious. We all cleaned our plates. The cucumber cocktail was fabulous
Fantastic meal and dining experience from beginning to end!
Our server was Jacob and he was awesome! .
It was very nice, and not loud.
Haven't ever been disappointed with a meal or service. One of our favorite local spots.
The gnocchi was good, however my wife's fish (petrole sole) was fantastic! Quiet atmosphere; excellent, relaxed service. Parking in downtown Petaluma is a challenge.
Warm and inviting with old school feel. Staff is friendly and professional both in greeting and throughout service. Pasta was perfect and special sweet corn risotto was a warm comforting summer dish
