Pasta King’s signature pastas and polentas, such as spaghetti with meatballs and baked polenta


Art’s Place is owned by Art Ibleto, “The Pasta King” who built a 40-year reputation serving Italian in Sonoma County. Art’s Place offers a variety of food, from burgers to pizza to Pasta King signature dishes. Vegetarian options are plentiful as well.

The smell of pasta and garlic bread on the drive home makes you salivate. If you weren’t hungry before you got the food, you will be upon pickup. The anticipation of waiting to eat something and not being disappointed is amazing.

Although the portion size of the fettuccine Alfredo wasn’t as large as the other entrees, its taste made it worth it. The penne with marinara sauce had a good portion as did the beef ravioli. For a half loaf of garlic bread, the bread was worth getting. You can’t go wrong with any of the pasta dishes, but the penne with marinara sauce and the fettuccine Alfredo are especially delicious.
