MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Though it’s named for a comforting dish of rice and peas, Risibisi’s seafood-heavy take on Italian cuisine is a bit more sophisticated. A meal at this Petaluma treasure might begin with a chilled slice of veal roast topped with creamy tuna sauce and dried capers. Also try the pesce di giorno, perhaps featuring beautifully grilled swordfish served alongside cheesy potatoes and green beans in olive-lemon sauce. End with their house-made tiramisu or cannoli with bits of candied fruit, caramel, and strawberry sauce. A makeshift picture gallery constructed out of salvaged Tuscan chestnut window frames, wine barrels, and wagon wheels bring character to this inviting brick-walled dining room. A back patio offers views of the river and old train tracks.

“Risibisi – Recommended Good Value”

risibisi restaurant - Zagat Rated 2010The restaurant’s namesake, risi e bisi, a classic Venetian dish, changes daily and represents the deliciously rustic fare from a kitchen that never seems to miss a beat. Northern Italian recipes are interpreted with California freshness in the like of Tuscan ribollita soup with white beans, chard, and Caggiano sausage; and moist pan-roasted Fulton Farms chicken with mushrooms and four-cheese polenta.

The room is warm with exposed brick, burlap-like curtains, and stressed wood paneling, while colorful wooden chairs suspend whimsically from the ceiling. A small bar topped with alabaster sits beneath snowball-like fixtures in the back. Soothing eclectic music complements the colorful abstract paintings that line the sunny-hued walls.
