Italian White Truffles!

Italian Truffles are known as some of the best Truffles in the world. Alba are the most famous, but you can find them in other Regions such as Toscana in San Gimignano and San Mignato, or the famous Crete Senesi Truffles form Siena; or in Marche Region. Canneti Roadhouse just got in some beautiful truffles from Marche, a region just below Tuscany.

Truffle is shaved over any item on the regular menu and also on a special pasta with butter, shallots and thyme.

Crab and goose...mid-fall ingredients

New Ingredients and new Wines at Canneti Roadhouse Italiana.

The Food:

Crab is finally in season and we just received the first delivery from fishing Vessel Nouctila. These crabs are from 2 to 3lb, very tasty and it seems like it will be an exceptional Crab season.

After searching for 16 months all over the valley, we have finally found someone who raises geese! Salmon Creek Ranch is located in Bodega Bay..we invite every one to visit their stand at the Well's Fargo Farmer's Market. Roasted Goose with Tuscan Kale and Raisins will soon be available on the regular Menu and on the Tuscan tasting Menu.

The goal of Canneti Team is to offer hearty yet not banal ingredients and exclusive wines in a warm, inviting environment. The artisan work in the kitchen is presented to our Guests on Italian hand made plate ware by Vietri and Rosenthal, the wines are poured into Rocco Bormioli and the tables themselves are custom made by a local artist.

The Wines:

Following this philosophy, Canneti Roadhouse Sommelier and Proprietor Francesco Torre is selecting many small unpretentious but excellent wineries, along with the most acclaimed local and Tuscan wines. After Williams Selyem and Trombetta, we introduced into the wine list three Tuscan "musts":

Guado al Tasso, Tenuta di Bolgheri 2008 (Cab. Sauvignon, Merlot, Cab Franc and Petit Verdot), Sassicaia, Tenuta di Tignanello 2011 (Cabernet Sauvignon) and Solaia (Cab. Sauvignon, San Giovese and Cab. Franc).

Because of the high cost of all we craft in the house, the cured table setting and many other details you will notice in the house, Canneti is not able to comp any corkage or give any kind of discount. We void a corkage fee for every full bottle purchased from our list and we also offer a corkage free night every Wednesday. If you wish to know more about this topic please call Canneti at 707-887-2232 and ask for Francesco.


Grazie a tutti ed arrivederci!

Canneti Team

New Wines

Goat seems to be the trend of 2014. But here, at Canneti Roadhouse, we don't follow trends...trends seems to follow us! Lisa..the cheese genius of Bohemian Creamery just butchered a goat of 26 lb for us. This deliciousness will be on the menu starting next week.

The Wines:

William Foss is producing his own label now: Foss Pinot Noir 2012, is a single vineyard, 100% Pommard. Grapes are grown on the Blue Cottage Ranch, on Eastside Road. Elegant and fine like a French stands at the same level of the best Russian River Pinot Noir!

Cultus Boni: "the good harvest". This special Chianti Classico Reserve is one of its kind in Tuscany. Produced in Gaiole in Chainti by Badia a Coltibuono....this wine is organic and Canneti is the only restaurant carrying it.

Passalaqua does not distribute to restaurants..the production is too small and always sell out. But Canneti is serving Sauvignon Blanc, Longo Vineyard to die for.


Ciao a tutti and a presto.
