We were looking for great food while visiting Calistoga, and tried "Barolo", shortly after their new AMAZING chef Vince arrived. If you want to try REAL italian cooking this is the place. Authentic, tasty, perfect, nothing is added to the plates that are kept as the original recipes and not the too often modified stuff you may eat in the... More

We had dinner there a few nights ago, but first stopped by the bar to catch a happy hour drink. The bartender was friendly and kind. We dined outside, and it was difficult to choose from the menu, it all sounded good. Loved the grilled asparagus with burrata, the salad and the hommade pasta. Oh, I almost forgot the dessert!...

Limited, uninspired menu. Dining room by the bar quite dark and stale. We had a group of 12 and none of the selected items were above average, even for a Sunday evening.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review, Edward, however, I'm sorry to hear your party was underwhelmed with their food. If you ever give us another shot, I'd love to chat with you about your tastes to see if we can find something on our menu that's more fitted to your palette. Thank you, Mark Young, Barolo More

Stopped in to grab a bite of food after doing some shopping - had a great variety on the menu full of salads, sandwiches. Food was in large portions, fries were yummy, service was good.

We went here almost every day for happy hour. They have great drink specials and bar snacks, $5. It's very small but luckily we were always able to get a place at the bar. I'm not sure we would have had much service though if we had been at one of the tables.

Nice cozy restaurant. Food was reasonably good; however, they could not make martinis even though the restaurant has a full bar. When it was time to order dessert, we found out that they had run out of few of them.

I'm happy to hear you enjoyed the food, Armond, and I appreciate you taking the time to reach out on Tripadvisor. However, I'm sorry to hear we were out of some of our desserts.

This was rated highly and I was disappointed for Italian food. The fetticine carbonara was just ok and not very tasty. I asked my husband if he liked his dinner and he said it was not good. The restaurant was small and not particularly attractive inside. It was pricey for Italian food

I'm concerned to hear you were disappointed. While we believe our ingredients match our prices, it's certainly disappointing to hear you did not find your fettuccine carbonara tasty. If you ever give us another shot, I'd love to talk to you about your tastes to find the right dish for you. Thank you, Mark Young, Barolo More
