Thank you Trip Advisor for recommending this hidden gem. Not easy to find, tucked away in the corner of a local shopping centre - took us 2 circuits of the car park to find it. But glad we did. Excellent friendly service. We ate from the 'specials - tender scallops wrapped in pancetta and the sole in white wine and caper sauce cooking to perfection. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Went here based on TripAdvisor reviews and it was worth the trip, it is off the beaten path in Sonoma (not on the main square) but worth the 4 extra blocks. The food is very reasonably prices and SO good. The pasta was fresh and the portion was HUGE. The staff was very friendly and made great recommendations and was very attentive.

We split the mushroom ragu over polenta appetizer and it was one of the best things I have ever eaten, if it is on the menu, you must order it.

Real, true, epic Italian food. Owned by a fabulous couple - this is the real deal. Yes, there is an authentic Italian man back there cooking your food - and he is busting his butt at it, seriously, take a peek in the kitchen. See? I told you so!

I'm not one for sappy silly over the top overly positive Yelp reviews, but this is the real deal: if you're craving it, they'll make it, and what is on the menu is to die for: I've had steak, carbonara, lobster ravioli, seafood orecchiette, swordfish, bacon wrapped scallops....never a bad meal.

Oh and don't forget dessert. Their tiramisu is the stuff of legends in the Bay Area.

Wine is great - love the rose, good dry sparkling wine (but not sweet stuff), and a decently priced red wine selection for all palettes.

Make a reservation, and bring your appetite. You will not starve at Mamma Tanino's.

Tell them Sarah, John and BJ sent you!!!

My husband and I both had the orichete with seafood. There was an abundance of mussels, scampi, and scallops. The red sauce was light and flavorful. We shared a fruit tart for desert. Delicious!

Ignore the location (a little strip mall a few blocks from the Square), ignore the fact that it can be noisy if there is a big group dining....just focus on how authentic the food is,enjoy the freshest ingredients, and close your eyes and be transported to a small cafe in Florence. This is now my FAVORITE restaurant in Sonoma!
