“Consistantly Good”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Been going to Caffe Giostra now for several years. While they changed ownership a year or so ago the quality has been maintained if not improved. Food is always hot, fresh and ample portions. Never have had a bad meal. Highly recommend.

“A gem”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

In a town like Petaluma to survive in the Italian restaurant business you have to better than good and this one is exceptional. We go often and have never had a bad meal. Special every night supplement a full Italian menu. A limited but good wine selection. It's amazing what comes out of the tiny kitchen. Seating is limited so reservations are definitely recommended.

“Solid Home made Ravioli”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

This is a small restaurant located in a strip mall. Nice atmosphere inside. Outdoor tables too. The food is really good. I had the ravioli with spinach and ricotta. I like the focaccia and bread they bring with your meal. Service is very solid. Wine list is nice too. I would like to try more of their menu. They don't have a full liquor license. The tiramisu was really great. Large, so maybe split dessert. Good place for a date.

“Neighborhood gem”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

As other reviewers have said, it's tucked away in a shopping center at the north end of Petaluma. They have been in business a very long time and continue to deliver consistent good Italian fare. It's a very small place, and is packed most of the time. Reservations are a must. Service is spot on and friendly. They have many daily specials and their foccaccia is delicious. Try the profiteroles for dessert.
