What a nice little place to eat! The food was fresh and yummy and we had a very awesome and attentive waiter! Try the homemade garlic bread! It's a must! We split a small Caesar salad and a calzone and between the 3 dishes, we were happily stuffed! Would go back to try other dishes!

Enjoyed a good pasta meal at Checkers on Lincoln Ave in Calistoga. This place offers a wide variety of Italian pastabilities, and a modest selection of beer and wines. Service was prompt and our server was most pleasant, quick with warm bread, and to refill our glasses with water or wine, our dining experience was memorable.

This place is great for the family visiting Calistoga! Their focaccia bread is fantastic and the atmosphere is relaxed.

From the outside, you would think this is a pizza joint. You would be mistaken. While they do have pizza on the menu, the food is the equivalent of a high end restaurant....but without the big price tag. My wife and I were surprised first of all by the menu lineup as it was much more than pizza and Italian.... More

You can always count on a great lunch or dinner at Checkers. Their Napa salad is wonderful. Whenever my family comes to Calistoga we always have our first meal at Checkers.

We were directed to Checkers by our wine tour driver/guide. The menu looked packed with great choices of entrees, salads, and sandwiches. Time being a factor, we chose the soup and 1/2 sandwich combo. Wife had turkey. I had lamb. We also split an order of garlic bread. All were done well, and were more than enough to satisfy.

Great Italian family restaurant on the Main Street of Calistoga. For the 3 grandchildren crayons and papers were ready as we sat down! Very good pizzas and excellent ravioli in rose sauce. But the pizza order was messed up because the waiter did not understand so we had to wait a long 20 mins for the proper one to arrive.... More

I can't believe what a difference good service can make to a dining experience. Food always tastes better when everyone in the restaurant including the staff are happy and having a good time. The food was phenomenal and the ambience was divine. After eating here it's easy to understand why this was one of the most recommended restaurants by all... More

We always get one of their delicious salads and our favorite dish is the polenta and vegetables. Very family-friendly.
