Formoli’s Bistro established in the spring of 2008 by husband and wife team Aimal Formoli and Suzanne Ricci. Their dream was to open a ten table restaurant with a small menu that covered the basics of simple—but in no way understated—food. Aimal, a graduate of California Culinary Academy in San Francisco had a vision of dinning the way that he himself wanted to experience food.  Aimal and Suzanne—both Sacramento natives—decided to take the risk of opening a restaurant during a fallen economy. By taking the approach of having an eclectic small menu, Chef Formoli has been able to incorporate a European influence in his food, drawing mostly from France, Spain and Italy. Chef Formoli proudly sources his food from local California farmers.

We want everyone that walks through our doors to feel our genuine connection to our food, service and passion for our restaurant.
—Chef & Owner Aimal Formoli

We are both fond of Portland and San Francisco style of food, however they cannot compete with the warmth, and humbleness of the Sacramento food scene.
—Owner Suzanne Formoli
