"We live in Santa Rosa and don't get to Petaluma, but Risibisi is so special that it makes the trip well worth it. Aside from delicious, well-prepared food, the lighting is subdued, the music is tasteful, and the over-all ambiance is very pleasing. Our go-to for a date night!"

"You will find out how good it can be here because this is as good as it can be. There's no meat in it, no (or very little) cheese, the eggplant isn't breaded or fried, and it is absolutely out of this world. There's not many tables (about 40 seats maybe?) so reservations are a good idea"

"The food and service were excellent. The cancellation policy is off putting. Credit card required to reserve and $25 per head cancellation fee if less than 48 hrs. This is at the discretion of the owner but still did not sit well with me and might play a part in my decision to return."

"Had a wonderful late lunch with my sister on MLK Day. We had the place to ourselves for much of the meal, which was delicious. We split the bruschetta (ricotta and mushrooms), and the roasted beet salad; she had the wild boar gnocci (light as air), and I had the chicken cacciatore (complex flavors and tender, moist chicken). The service was attentive and wonderful, and we never felt rushed."

"We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere, warm and cozy, good for conversation. Service was very good and menu selections were varied. I enjoyed the Wild Boar Gnocchi but thought the sauce was much more interesting than the more bland sauce on my friend's pasta dish. The salad was fresh and the servings of our desert Gelato were quite large. Would like to return to try more dishes."

"This restaurant scored a win in every way. I had one of the day's specials - pasta with seafood - and it was full of scrumptious tiny mussels and clams and petrale sole! I will definitely return."

"My husband and I came here before a concert at the Mystic, and I am so glad we decided to eat in Petaluma, because this place made quite an impression on me. I started with the mushroom bruschetta, which were pretty yummy, and my husband had the squash puree, which was amazing -- very apple-y, tasted just like fall. My main dish, however, was outstanding. I ordered the eggplant alla parmigiana, and after the first bite, I started to tear up. Seriously. It tasted just like my Sicilian grandmother's eggplant parm, like I used to have when I was a kid. She died more than 20 years ago, but this dish brought her right back to me. Frankly, this kind of thing I always thought of as something that only happens in the movies (a la Pixar's Ratatouille), but now I know better. Thank you for bringing Grandma Lillian to life for me, chef! Keep up the good work!"

"The food and cocktails at Risibisi are top notch. Definitely try the Wild Boar Gnocchi, yum! Everyone at our table was quite satisfied with their entree selections - salad was crisp, squash soup smooth and flavorful; the ambiance is warm, friendly but not loud; waiters are attentive and informed. I will be back."

"We've heard about this place but hadn't had the chance to try it. A group of us, all friends, were in town for the Boat Parade on a winter Saturday evening and thought we'd take the opportunity to check the place out. We were welcomed into a rustic, warm, comfortable place! Our waiter was great- explained the nuances to the menu along with some "chef's choices".
The food was solid- very flavorful and also with some twists to keep it interesting.
Next time we want to come back and try to sit at the bar -- it seemed to be the hot spot!
