Semolina: "Decent, But Not Great, Italian Food" Top 5 Page for this destination Petaluma Restaurant Tip by WulfstanTraveller

Petaluma Restaurants: 19 reviews and 15 photos

Semolina is a pretty good, but not great, Italian restaurant located in a converted old A&W. The food is standard American Italian food and is overall good, but hardly great. It is pretty reliable and tasty, and not too expensive, but the food lacks finesse, true care, or any real spark and there is a general lack of professionalsim here.

It is certainly better than many places, and far superior to the chain garbage one finds in, say, most of the Central Valley or typical suburban housing developments anywhere, but in this area there are many much better Italian restaurants.

That said, it's probably a pretty good place to take kids without too much trouble and still get decent Italian food.
