This isn't a bad restaurant, but I really wanted more. We shared the roasted Brussels sprouts which were not as good as at other restaurants - basically just cut in half & roasted - not crispy enough. We then had the trumpet mushroom risotto. The mushrooms were great - risotto was bland. The short ribs were a bit dry -... More

This is a lucky find, picked at random, and was the best meal of the weekend! Short Ribs where the best we ever tasted (2 of us ordered) we both cleaned our plates! Cioppino was the special, and husband said it was fresh and delicious. Drinks where great, and dessert shouldn't be missed, very tasty!

This place was recommended by our hotel. We had to wait a bit, but it was a Friday night and this seems to be a popular spot. They have a nice menu selection and not overly expensive. I had the pumpkin ravioli and my husband had a huge portion of lasagna. Both were excellent. Barolo also has many great wine... More

A small Italian restaurant in the heart of Calistoga. They had a varied menu with about 9 appetizer, 7 pasta, and 4 salad choices, plus a couple of specials. They also serve pizza. The bruschetta was excellent. It was served as 3 large pieces - enough for two to share. The shrimp/garlic pasta was yummy and had many, large shrimp.... More

I may have had an usual experience with service at this restaurant as I was a woman dining alone- if so, that is too bad as I would not go back alone. I had a reservation for a table but since this restaurant is quite small with a large bar in the middle, the rather cold gentleman who greeted me... More

Whether you come here with a group or by yourself, you should always expect friendly and helpful service. We're very embarrassed and sorry if that was not the case. It sounds like Mark may have been preoccupied with something else that day, as he is normally very friendly and excited to talk to customers. However, preoccupied or not, there's no... More

The party that was dining at our table was staying beyond their anticipated duration ... the manager quickly and elegantly explained the situation and asked if we would mind sitting at the bar until another table became available. We were treated like royalty and were catered to in compensatory-style ... the chef brought out some nice morsels for us to... More
