“So good you'd think you're in Brooklyn!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Do not leave Calistoga without eating here!!! Just walk in the door and smell the food... really, what else needs to be said. If you don't dive onto the nearest chair and order then you just don't like amazing Italian food. Period.

They hand make their pasta noodles every day, the ingredients in their dishes and sauces couldn't be fresher and their prices are extremely fair for such high quality.

The only down side is that we don't have a Boskos in my town :(
Oh well, guess we'll have to make another trip to Calistoga to:
1. Eat at Boskos
2. Visit the wineries :)
Enjoy - StreetGrinder

“Most Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

great food, fresh salad dressings, hostess/waitress was very nice and knowledable in wine. The place was clean and had an impressive wine list. Its a cant miss stop while in Calistoga. We go there every year....

“Great Choice for Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

From the greeting by the hostess, through the servers and busboys, everyone worked as a team to ensure we had excellent service. Oh and the menu selection and food were excellent, too.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Food was good, but we ate so many good meals on this trip. This one would not stand out as one of my favs, but again, we ate at some VERY good restaurants on this trip.

“Great location but food is lacking”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

My wife and I just wanted to grab a simple meal and chose this due to is location. We are pretty easy to please, but the food was just not good. Our salads were bland and the pizza lacked flavor as well. We looked hard but could not find cheese on the pizza. To cap it off, the wine we ordered had been open too long and had gone bad. We had no problem getting in on a busy Friday night -- which maybe was a clue.
