We enjoyed the place so much, we came back for dinner the next night too. We had an awesome garlic pizza one night and some wonderful pasta the second night.

Came for pizza, salad & beer. Good service, nice ambiance & right at the heart of downtown Callistoga. We sat by the window & did some people watching while enjoying our lunch!

The pizza was great as were the salads. Our waiter was very pleasant and efficient. We sat in a "window" booth, ambience was nice.

I had the steam mussels and some salad. The flavor of mussels was so powerful and tasty, made me forget what kind of salad I had:p
