Round Table Pizza morphs to Terra Vino
Sonoma County diners like things fresh with their dining, down to the farm-to-table pizza. So in response, some of the Round Table Pizza signs have come down, and the Terra Vino Tapas-Pizza-Wine signs have gone up.
The owners remain the same for the restaurants in Sebastopol, Rohnert Park, and two Petaluma locations, and the menus haven’t changed all that much.
The main difference is that the new menus have been localized, according to CEO Pete Singler, Jr. That means no franchise uniformity, with each store able to customize seasonal showcases on local ingredients. The restaurants now also feature local wines.
The Singler family has been operating Round Table Pizza restaurants in the Bay Area since 1966. The Santa Rosa shops are still Round Table franchises, for the time being.
“The Terra Vino name translates to ‘Wine Country,’” said Singler. “We started off as a family-owned pizza place and wanted to get back to our roots serving fresh local products in a non-chain way.”
Terra Vino customers can choose pies ($8-$24) like the Harvest of artichoke hearts, spinach, mushrooms, Roma tomatoes, red and yellow onions, three cheeses, creamy garlic sauce, and optional fresh garlic; or a Margherita topped in whole milk mozzarella, Roma tomatoes, basil, and tomato sauce.
Tapas are actually updated appetizers, including meatball formaggi ($8), chicken wings ($6), and the more ambitious mac-and-cheese with pancetta ($8).
