Campo FinaA trendsetting Italian restaurant just off the plaza in downtown Healdsburg, Campo Fina is where locals go for a night out. The eatery sponsors an annual bocce tournament on a regulation court in the back, hosts after-hours dance parties on summer weekends, and serves family-style dishes designed for sharing. Menu highlights include burrata cheese with toast points, honey-roasted baby carrots with bread crumbs, and pork-and-beef meatballs in tomato sauce. The restaurant also has a pizza oven, which means you can order calzones and wood-fired pizzas at any time of day or night. In summer, the open-air patio becomes quite a scene, with large dinner parties popping bottle after bottle of prosecco and well-heeled drinkers lining up two and three deep at the bar for Italian cocktails. Above all else, Campo is known best for hospitality; husband-and-wife owners Ari Rosen and Dawnelise Regnery make the rounds to welcome guests and ensure everyone is comfortable.
