Wandered over to Barolo from the adjoining spa during happy hour and was pleasantly surprised. The food was great, wine smooth but the most fun was the mixed drink, bartender's choice. I put myself in the hands of the creative bartender who spent quite a while mixing amazing and unusual creations. It took me out of my comfort zone and... More

This was my second visit and they did it again. Superior service Excellent food Good vibe Started out with panzanella; the subtle bitterness of the arugula completed the peaches and tomatoes. This salad is a winner! Polpettone with polenta; best meatballs i have had in a long time! The creamy polenta completed this dish! It's a ten! Gulf shrimp panzerotti;... More

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.
