I’ve just in the last 10 days found out about this restaurant and have eaten there twice already! It’s beyond delicious!!! True Italian cuisine. I recommend asking if Michael is working, he’s an amazing waiter that will entertain you all through your dining experience and is on top of what you might want before you are! You won’t regret trying this restaurant and I’ll bet, after you you do, you’ll be back again, & again & again!!!


Wow! The absolutely best fried calamari we’ve had in years…perfectly battered and crispy. The seafood and linguine special was perfect with just the right amount red pepper to add heat but not overpower the mussels, clams, squid, shrimp, and fish. The orrechetti with sausage and broccoli rabe were perfect. First time in a long time cannoli was served with chopped pistachios, reminiscent of New York. Definitely, a find we will revisit on our next trip to Sonoma.


Food was a solid ten and came out hot. Service was horrible.Our waiter could not have been worse. After he took our order and the food was delivered,we never saw him again.Really took away from the entire experience. A hundred dollars for dinner for three and this guy never refilled our water.Obviously overloaded and uncaring.What a shame.

Classic Italian cuisine in a casual and modest atmosphere. The tagliatelle bolognese, lasagna, and cacciucco livernese were all excellent dishes. The staff were friendly and attentive despite how busy they were that evening. If you are in the mood for some excellent Italian food in a relaxed setting, I'd definitely give LoCoco's a try!

Showed up on a Sunday night. 2021 08 08. Wanted to sit outside with our friendly dog. I was informed it would take 10-15 minutes to clean and set a table for us as there were two empty ones. 10 became 15, -15, 30 then 35 minutes. The two teenagers that were there, instead of hard-working adults seem to be wandering around staring at the air, occasionally bussing a plate. They managed to slowly set one two-person table inside for a reservation that showed up in the meantime, but the two other tables outside remain basically cleared but uncleaned and untouched, even though laps were being made where nothing else was happening with the aforementioned teenagers. I informed the host teenager that it's pretty obvious they were short-staffed (in hustle) and we will go elsewhere. He in no way seemed to want to stop us or asked if there was anything else he could do for us. I related this via personal message on Facebook and was responded to with 4 quick questions about who I was and how dare I have an opinion on how restaurants are run. Soon after I wrote a small response which was replied with their auto reply. In it there was a suggestion to go to Yelp and ask for a reservation. Looking back at my facebook message, the 4 insulting questions were removed by the writer. To answer the deleted questions though. I am an adult who eats, and pays for it. I have been a cook and a dishwasher and can cook well enough to make most of the dishes you serve to others. I would rather have a good meal with great service, rather than a great meal with crappy service. Because ultimately I am paying for the experience... good enough? I can go on.

As someone who eats a LOT of pasta and Italian food and restaurants this is Hands down the best Italian restaurant I've ever been too, almost as good as the homemade stuff I've had from Italian born natives. Super yummy and filling. Enjoyable atmosphere and our waiter was very friendly and interactive! Love this place and would love to return! Highly recommend. Great first experience back to a restaurant in well over a year!

Superb bread with olive tampanade to start off your taste buds. No Dr. Pepper though? Really?? The truffle fries are to die for. Pesto gnocchi is small and fluffy. Not too dense. The parking lot setup due to Covid was ok. Not too bad, but not that great either. Great service. Happy taste buds.

Always the best Italian food and service. Took my two grandsons for dinner. Never disappointing.

Excellent service! Great food. Was very crowded and took a very long time to be served. Bread service was tasty hearty bread and olive purée or butter. Ordered a salad to share and the kitchen split it for us. Good quality and quantity for price.

This place is a classic Italian joint. I love the dusty bottles, tables clothes, etc..The food is always good and the servers are easygoing and patient.It’s not uptight or too fancy - just perfect

Best Italian in Sonoma County. I dream of the gnocchi with Gorgonzola cream sauce. Atmosphere is rustic but authentic, service is warm and helpful if a bit slow (but that's just the nature of the industry right now). I recommend it often and am excited to go back.

Excellent Italian food. We enjoyed discussing Italy with our server. We all cleaned out plates because the flavors melded so well. From the fig crostini, to the pasta and risotto, to the lemoncello sorbet - everything was superb.
