Good lunch

We had been out at the wineries for the day and decided a meal was in order. We happened across Cook by chance. The menu is fresh and limited. The pasta was freshly made and tasty. The steak was ok, not memorable in anyway. I wouldn't say no to returning but I am eager to try other places.

The cavatelli and fettucini were freshly made and cooked well. The cavatelli sauce was a bit too spicy. Some will feel a plate of pasta at $18 is a bit much so those with a large family with young children will need to review the menu carefully. The staff was very good and not over attentive.

This is my third visit here over the last few years and let me tell you the food is amazing. Everything I have had here is delicious. Pasta is made fresh daily and all the ingredients are fresh. This is a definite must place to try after a fun day of wine tasting.

We arrived into St Helena later in the day and were exhausted. We checked into our hotel and quickly went back out to seek something to eat. Having arrived on a Sunday evening, we found our options limited and we promptly chose the first place that looked like it had seating available. We are SO glad we did! It just... More

You might miss it on main st if you weren't looking for it - but we were. So glad we stopped. Start with calamari - perfect seasoning and crunch, w/ spicy dipping sauce. Then - she got pasta arrabbiata and sausage - nice heat, great balance of flavors. And pappardelle - short rib melts in your mouth. Good wine selection-of... More

The place is the perfect stopping place for a great meal in a charming atmosphere. The Creme of Artichoke a soup was a culinary inspiration and the Grilled Octopus was cooked to absolute perfection. The staff was over-the-top friendly and accommodating. Wish we were here longer as this would be a favorite hangout!
