A surprising find

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... read more

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.

Discovered this gem on our last girls-weekend. The minute I walked up I realized that this was THE place in town to be. The place was packed. And we did not have reservations.

Love the house-made burata, the lasagna, short ribs, pizzas, desserts. Great drinks. Wines by the glass choice not great.

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. If the bar area is full, I imagine it would be quite noisy. We sampled 2 different pizzas and they were both good, with thin and crispy crusts. The menu is... More

From beginning to end, a great experience! Our waiter really knew his stuff and made great recommendations. One of our parties meals was messed up (not a big deal) and the owner/manager came out and apologized. The waiter got the correct meal out pronto and then comped us a dessert. We really weren't bothered but totally appreciated the extra effort.... More

We have eaten here before and enjoyed our food so we thought we would give Barolo another try. I ordered the Orecchietti Pasta with kale pesto, and my wife ordered the Insalta Barbatietole. both were outstanding with the pasta our favorite. Service was quick and pleasant. The only negative was a couple of loud story tellers at the bar. They... More

We were quickly welcomed and had a very short wait while they got a table ready. Matthew, our server for dinner, was great and we appreciated his recommendations. He didn't let us down with anything he recommended. The atmosphere is also perfect.

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
