Terrific Food and Service

We visited with another couple and a friend for my wife's birthday. This is a top notch place, perfect cocktails made to our order. We brought our own wine. Duck, fish and pork dishes were each wonderful. Book in advance, though, they are always full.

Charming little spot for beer or wine and tapas. Shopping near by for the women. Great bakery across the street. Good escape from the wine tastings.

The are lots of great restaurants in Yountville and many are hard to get into. We were fortunate to get a lunch booking having booked a few days in advance. The food is excellent as is the wine. This place would hold its own against any restaurant in Italy. The service was excellent and if it's a nice day I... More

We enjoyed dining outside, despite the tables being a little close. We enjoyed our pasta meals but wish we had done more research before arriving regarding what to order. We weren't wowed by our meals as we expected to be, though everything was prepared well and tasted good. I will be back and try again!

While visiting Napa, we wanted to locate a restaurant between stops at the vineyards. Yountville seemed to be a good spot along the way and Bottega was selected for lunch. What a great choice. The food was amazing and the service was on point. We began with calamari and short rib meatballs and was blown away with the flavor of... More

Gotta tell you - - I was so excited to go to Bottega. I had missed it on our last visit. I felt like I was eating at Applebees. Service/food was rushed and just dropped at the table. Staff was not that friendly. We sat on the patio which was a blessing; the inside was as loud as a football... More

Located very close to Bardesonno so it was a nice walk to get out and get some lunch. A lot of italian food with a french flair. Outdoor patio makes it very nice to eat outside. Nice place to do some shopping, very good location. Selection of wines very nice as well.

What a great experience! Had the pasta they prepared for Sophia Loren's birthday the wheat spaghetti! It is so delish! It's not huge, but perfect! Shared desserts with four of us. Try the cookies. Such a special atmosphere! Matthew was our server and fantastic! Don't miss this. It's special.

Superb restaurant in quaint beautiful Yountville. Probably the best duck I've ever had and the pasta bolognese was incredible.

We came here for our anniversary dinner and loved it. My husband had the branzino and I had Lasagnetta di Zucchini al Forno. Both were excellent. The service was excellent too.
