I had always wanted to go to Dinucci's because I'd heard such great reviews - I was expecting something more upscale, but fell in love with its rustic charm and locals. Wait staff was friendly and attentive - full bar - and lots of old pictures and stuff to look at - all in the middle of beautiful ranch country.... More

Dinucci's is an old style Italian Family restaurant, and the food and decor probably haven't changed in 40 or 50 years, and those are the reasons to stop by. You won't leave saying it was the best food you have had this month, but you will probably not regret the stop. That said, I have not eaten down the street... More

We stopped in at Dinucci's without reservations and were able to be seated immediately. It is in a rural area but had a large varied menu of very delightful Italian dishes. We all found something we enjoyed on the menu. Service was excellent. We had brought our own wine and their corkage fee was resonable.

Valley Ford's other dinner restaurant. Reasonably priced. Large portions. Many courses. Family/basque-like style servings. Friendly. Old established restaurant in very old setting. Beware machine noise near some tables. Not gourmet. Popular funky old-time bar.

Don't let the old building throw you off, because it's what's inside that counts - excellent Italian food - in a throw back Italian setting. In the small town of Valley Ford where Christo's Fence once made its 24 mile journey to the coast, is one of the longest run family restaurants in Sonoma County. I lived in Sonoma and... More

Went with friends for dinner out. Two of us ordered the Friday night special of prime rib and we were not disappointed. Much more than we could eat at one sitting and so tender. The entire meal from antipasti, through minestrone soup and salads to the entree was very satisfying. The seafood platter was ok, according to my husband; prawns... More

This is a very good Italian restaurant, in between Petaluma and Bodega Bay in the small town of Valley Ford. Great food, great company. Go early so you can take a walk through town after your meal.

A place in the middle of nowhere, it was our only possible stop for dinner while crossing the area at night. We did not regret it. Once you enter you are in the bar area, but the restaurant is further in, set in a nicer and better-lit atmosphere. The staff was very attentive and you really got the feeling of... More

Went for an early easter dinner. Mum had the ham special. Wonderful and not too salty. I had the steak which was fine though not great. Decent anti-pasti. Perfect green beans. A great Chianti by the glass. All the wines are $30. Full bar. The vodka selection was a bit curious. I think the only kind they had was Imperial.... More

The vibe is old school red sauce Italian meets northern California cattle rancher. Food is good standard fare for what they are trying to do.
