Great Happy Hour

Very convenient location and reasonable happy hour. Try the truffle mac-n-cheese! Staff seemed to be a bit annoyed by the customers, but I'd go back.

Barolo had friendly service, however the waitress forgot the extra item (pepperoni) from my husbands pizza. But the "pizza" was the weirdest pizza I've ever had, as it did not have tomato on the base. I thought pizza was meant to have tomato on the base, well they do in Italy! Ours was called a Fungi but was like garlic... More

Thank you for taking the time to review. I really appreciate it. However, I'm sorry to hear if an item was missing from your husband's pizza. Never hesitate to let us know in those situations, we always want to make things right. Now, if you're ever in the Calistoga area again, we'd love to see you! Thank you, Mark Young,... More

For 2 hours every weekday evening, you can sample yummy appys, drink great Napa wines and not break the budget. In Napa this is hard to do. We love this place, sitting in the window sipping a good Cab and watching the parade of interesting people.

What I look for in a good restaurant is the experience. Barolo provided everything that leads to a great experience, attentive service, comfortable laid back atmosphere, great bar, and of course quality food. I don't head to this area often but I can guarantee I will be back because I felt like I was welcomed with open arms!

The best part about this restaurant was the service (shoutout to the younger trim man who served us- sorry I don't know your name). The waiter I had was very attentive without checking in constantly. The experience seemed very personal. Loved the olives. The size of the restaurant is perfect and intimate but casual.

The food here was ok. I had the lamb pasta which was lacking in seasoning and fried had the asparagus ravioli which was nicely done. The service is what we had a problem with. Not attentive.

We stopped in here after wine tasting at Sterling Vineyards this past Saturday for appetizers before dinner at Sam's Social Club. Very cool ambiance and nice menu selections. We enjoyed the Shrimp appetizer which was very flavorful and great to share. This is a really nice spot for a bite to eat, located right in the heart of downtown Calistoga.... More

Went here yesterday, had a couple glasses of wine, some bar bites as well, I've dined here before and it is very good with wonderful service. Above all besides the food is the wine list: Which is very well put together and it compliments the menu.

We had dinner at Barolo in February, 2015. Walking in, the ambiance was eclectic; a busy bar (mostly locals) with tables around the bar for dining. Our waitress was wonderful, the wine list was generous, and the food was AMAZING. My only "beef" with the restaurant is that it is somewhat noisy, and doesn't allow for an intimate setting. Apart...
