Husband-and-wife team John Stewart and Duskie Estes–they of Zazu fame–opened this restaurant on the Healdsburg Plaza to serve what they call "slow food... fast." The stars of the show: house-cured meats that are featured in pizzas, pastas, and sandwiches. For instance, the Salumist's Salad mixes a variety of cured meats with greens, white beans, and a tangy vinaigrette; and a thin-crust pizza might come topped with house-made Italian pork sausage and roasted peppers.
House-made gelato served with a dark chocolate sauce or zeppole (Italian donuts) provide a perfect ending to a meal. On summer weekends, the restaurant serves breakfast at 9 am. Closing hours vary according to season, so call ahead if planning an evening visit.
