Central Valley Restaurants

Restaurante Cerutti

  • Italian

Updated 04/09/2014

Fodor's Review

The diva of the Central Valley's Italian eateries, this little restaurant promises minimalist elegance in a lovely adobe house built in 1817. The extensive menu, focusing on modern Italian cuisine, ranges from roasted scallops with Spanish chorizo to ravioli stuffed with duck and Italian ham. Core dishes are complemented by a variety of selections that change every month or so. No one disputes that the quality of the food is high—with prices to match.

The Best of the Best

We live in the Wine Country in California, even our best Italian can't compare to Cerutti's ! A wonderful dining experience. Will be back.

Fantastic Food and Service!

This was the best meal of our 10-day trip! The service (all male wait staff) was fantastic, and the food just as good. The crispy spinach was amazing! I can't imagine how they did that. Portions are enormous. I would recommend sharing lots of small but with Italian food) to sample everything. This restaurant seems to be a hidden secret. It doesn't have a website, so I almost ruled it out, but it would have been a major mistake. Be sure to make a reservation.

It was full on the Sunday night that we dined there.
