It's a fun place for food and entertainment! If you haven't tried this place, don't wait any longer, go today! Everyone there makes delicious cocktails; especially Dee. And the food is above and beyond (try the calamari or a piadini)!! more »

We love the food at Franchettis' Kitchen! It is quite different. The atmosphere is great, as well. Everything we have had there has been wonderful - from pizza, burrata+pear, Saturday night BBQ - to their salads. The meld of flavors is amazing. I am eating things that I do not even like, let alone order. And, they have great desserts. I think that is a plus; however, it is way too tempting. I tried to leave without it. Not possible - so three of us shared one slice of apple strudel. Delicious. I only wish they would serve some sandos at dinner. They all sound so good. I rarely go out to lunch, and sometimes I just crave a good sandwich. I almost forgot to mention that the people that work there are also special. They aim only to please. Thank you! more »

Great place to eat in a section of Santa Rosa that is a desert of restaurants. The people are great, the ambience is warm, and of course the food terrific. Thanks Franchettis'! more »

I LOVE this restaurant ... fresh, local, organic food -- great portions, delicious salads, yummy pizzas ... other menu items I've yet to try, but will be back to do so for sure! Love the atmosphere, too ... comfy, casual and great service. I've sometimes been in a rush and service has been quick and other times I've lingered and have been welcomed to do so. A great find! more »

Hidden away is a wonderful place for a slightly different twist on food. I had the stone fruit eggs Benedict, all I can saw is Ymmmm . Amazing blend of flavors. Each meal ordered was served hot and quickly. The table became very quiet and all agreed we would be back very soon. The place itself is a bit querky. There is a ping pong table and mini golf area to one side, so if you don't want to be bothered sit on the left side of the restaurant. But do go and let your taste buds have fund. more »

Saturday evening - the food was great and the entertainment from kids playing ping pong and engaging each other on the patio outside was marvelous. So often, you get one or the other, but not good food and a good place for the family. AND plenty of free parking. Our kids are grown, but we'd take the grandkids, if they lived near Santa Rosa. Wine list was great too. Tables are close enough that it was easy to chat with diners on both sides. We shared the BBQ special (PLENTY for 2), and other diners said the GF fried chicken was amazing as were the pizzas. We'll be back to try them out. more »

Such a great place to take a friend (or friends), with a relaxing and friendly environment, and great food and wine. Cuisine on par or better than the best of most Sonoma County "foodie" restaurants, in a casual and attractive setting. more »

Now that this space has become Franchetti's, I've seen a VAST improvement in their service, organization, quality, variety, and overall feel. I love Rosso's original spot, but somehow it didn't seem to carry over to this space in the same way. But Franchetti's -- WOW! Such great food, friendly and efficient service, my favorite coffee (Sebastopol-based Taylor Maid Farms), and an excellent place to gather with a group. Good happy hour, too. more »

Franchetti's is amazing. Everyday there are specials based on whatever is the freshest food John can get his hands on. It is always wonderful. It has become our weekend brunch hang out. more »

The cauliflower mac n cheese is fabulous! If you go there, order this!
Additionally the staff is wonderful. My husband and I love to go there because we always feel so welcomed. But along with t
hat, the food is terrific (it is, after all, 'all about the food'!) Another favorite is the "chettis spicy chicken", a real winner. more »

AWESOME food. First and foremost, everything was fresh and tasted AMAZING. We got quite a few compliments on the food. I wish I ate more but we (bride and groom) were so busy.
The display of the
food was fantastic as well. We had small bites/apps and pizzas and the food wasn't just tossed out on a table. It was put out in a nice professional manner that looked good.
Communication was always fast. The back and forth via email and phone calls were professional and courteous and always answered in a timely manner.
Value was decent and they were flexible and helped us out tremendously as we got married in CA and we live on the east coast.
Highly recommend

Chef Franchetti is a flavor master. The food is delicious, and the servers are friendly and responsive. The potatoes and cauliflower mac and cheese are personal morning faves. Chef has always been willing to make something vegetarian. Try the peach bellinis! more »
