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. Had to keep asking for things. The servers were busy talking with the bartenders. Sad thing is, there were only 3 other couples in... More

I'm sorry if you felt like your food and service was anything less than our best, Jen. While we would've been happy to give you a recommendation of a dish that was more to your taste, you should always be receiving fast and friendly service. I'll be sure to share this with my staff so that we can avoid this... 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...

Nice atmosphere with nice employees. The food is average Italian fare. The arancini were quite good.

We are staying at the hotel and the restaurant is on site. The entire meal from the Calistoga coolers through the appetizer, meal and dessert was great. Service was a little slow, but our server told us that one server did not show up for work and they were left short handed. We will definitely go back again.

We opted for dinner here, as we were staying in the hotel and it was convenient. Mostly a bar with perhaps 10 tables, the ambiance is warm and pleasant.
