Cucina Paradiso is coming to Santa Rosa.

The much-loved Petaluma Italian restaurant is slated to open a second restaurant later this fall, according to owner Dennis Hernandez. The restaurateur took over Roberto’s Trattoria Lupo on Sonoma Hwy. in August 2015, with plans to reopen in early November.

The menu will be similar to the Petaluma restaurant, which has been a longtime Michelin Bib Gourmand.

Chef Angelo Cucco will take over the kitchen, a longtime SF chef and pal of Dennis.

  1. Disappointed in my favorite dish Linguini Vongol… No seafood just little neck clams…
    You can do better than that…


  2. very good food and excellent service…now they need to work on the wine list its pretty bad(looks like an Olive garden list)..think more local, less Italian wine, smaller production wines…take advantage of where you are.

  3. I pray they will be open on Sundays!!! It’s usually when I crave their gnocchi the most after working all weekend and then they wouldn’t be open! Hurry up CP2!

  4. Congratulations Malena & Dennis! You do a great job and your food is wonderful. I know that it will be a great success!

  5. This is fantastic!! Hands down the best Italian food in Sonoma County, no question. Plus the owners are amazing people, wish them tremendous success!!!

  6. YAY!!!! The Petaluma spot was our favorite dinner out, but that got to be difficult after moving to Windsor. Cannot wait, this is fantastic news! Congrats to the hardworking folks @ Cucina on their well deserved success.

  7. Hold on Santa Rosa – your new favorite Italian restaurant is coming to town.

    Best of luck Dennis, Malena and Angelo!
