Union Hotel Pizzeria: "Mediocre Italian Food & Pizza" Top 5 Page for this destination Santa Rosa Restaurant Tip by WulfstanTraveller

Santa Rosa Restaurants: 65 reviews and 48 photos

Union Hotel Pizza & Pasta Co. is a small local, Sonoma County chain based on the original in Occidental, west of Santa Rosa. The Occidental one is great, with the charm and atmosphere from the fact that it is an old hotel with a funky old dining hall left over from its early days serving up huge meals of basic, hearty Italian food (Sonoma County had a large immigrant Italian population, and their descendants are still numerous in the area). It also has a very nice, shaded patio and serves good meals. The branch in the G&G Shopping Center in Santa Rosa completely lacks the charm and atmosphere of the original and it literally does not even have the same menu or food. It's not terrible, but it certainly isn't great and there are many better places to go.

Favorite Dish: The pizza at this branch isn't bad, but it's not great. The multi-course meals of the original aren't available, either, and the recipes and cooking even seem different. I think it's because this is a pizzeria rather than a full restaurant.

I should point out that a new Union Hotel restaurant just opened in eastern Santa Rosa on Mission Blvd, but I have not eaten there and this only applies to the place on College Ave.

Address: 1211 West College Ave., Santa Rosa
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: It's in the G&G Supermarket shopping center on West College Ave., which is west of the freeway.
Price: US$11-20
Rating: 2
