“Risibisi” (rice and peas) is a classic Venetian dish which was traditionally offered to the Duke of Venice (“Doge”) on April 25, in celebration of Saint Mark’s Day, the patron Saint of Venice.

Risibisi was opened in downtown Petaluma in 2006 by Marco Palmieri, a native of Trieste, Italy on the Adriatic Sea.

Risibisi is not just another restaurant, it is the epitome of Italian hospitality. From the moment you arrive, you’ll discover what makes it so special – an atmosphere where guests are always treated like family

The “Slow Food” movement is thriving in Sonoma County and Petaluma is at the center of it all. “Slow Food” is the idea that a community can support each other by eating, drinking, growing, and cooking locally.
