Della Santina's Trattoria

This family-run Italian restaurant offers a welcome break from the rustic wine country menu and sleek service that prevails in and around Sonoma. Specialties are the spit-roasted meats and fresh-made pastas. Try the gnocchi followed by one of their homemade desserts. The outdoor garden patio which features a fountain and a vine-filled overhead trellis is the ideal setting for a late lunch and bottle of wine, while the inside area is reminiscent of a homey dining room, albeit one that's crammed with tables.
