Restaurant Watch: Healdsburg

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

Lots happening in Healdsburg this fall. Here are several restaurants to watch for…

Taverna Sofia Greek and Mediterranean restaurant is slated to take over the former Bovolo space inside Copperfield’s Bookstore. A Sofia Lim, a Santa Rosa Junior College culinary grad, is reportedly planning to offer traditional foods of the region, including fresh baked goods. Opening is slated for late October.

– The Stark’s Bravas Bar (at the former Ravenous location at 420 Center) is looking like an EARLY OCTOBER opening.

– No sign of life yet at the Parish Cafe on Mill Street, a Louisiana-themed restaurant, but a fall opening is anticipated.

– Recently approved: Winemaker Pete Seghesio’s Healdsburg Meat Co., a salumeri and meat shop that’s slated for Spring 2014 in the old post office lot.

Casa de Mole is slated to open late this year as a carniceria and mole spot from the owners of Agave.

– Rumor has it there may be expansion plans for certain downtown icon. But not official word yet.

– Affronti has closed. Cafe Lucia is slated to open later this fall in the space. 

Pizzando opens Sept. 18

  1. This restaurant is open, and is excellent.

    Ms. I., I request you update your page here. I realize you have family & a zillion restaurants, etc, to keep up with, but this ain’t the City. The restaurant has been opened some months (this is July 2013) & we went there last night. The aromas stamped “fresh, Greece” all over me. The soup was luscious. We tried a full sampling and all had “warm, sunny, and “delicious” as our answers. The dessert – baklava, scrumptious, and (!) light (for this kind of dessert).

    I would like to view what you think. Thank you.

  2. Bovolo is closed. They have opened a new venture called Zazu on the River over next to Davis Family Winery’s tasting room

  3. Some folks in town are already grumbing about the bright blue mural going up at the new Greek place.
    It is kinda out of place and bit ummm…. loud?

  4. I love Greek food! I’m looking forward to this new development.

    Is Bovolo even still open? We called to find out their new hours, but always got a recording with no info. and the new location has no indication that they even exist.
