Cucina Paradiso
56 East Washington St. Petaluma, Ca. 94952
(707) 782-1130


When you arrive at Cucina Paradiso, you're greeted with the same graciousness you would if you were visiting the home of friends. Chef and owner Dennis Hernandez and his wife, Malena, love welcoming guests to their restaurant and serving them wonderful Italian food. Their pleasure comes from giving personal attention to their guests and every detail of their restaurant, from the fresh roses on every table to a hand-picked selection of Italian and Sonoma County wines.

Although Dennis learned the basics of cooking when he came to California at age 21, it was when he was hired as a line cook at Ristorante Bacco in San Francisco (one of the City's top ten restaurants according to the San Francisco Chronicle) that Dennis grew from a cook to a chef. The head chef and owner, Vincenzo Cucco, immediately recognized Dennis's talent and drive and "taught him everything from a to z about how to prepare authentic Italian food."
