This is a pizzeria that serves other Italian dishes as well. The pizza here is a good New York style. The pasta was nice as well. Service is excellent, as it is a sit down style eatery.

My wife and I rented a place in Calistoga for the whole summer. We counted 20 restaurants in town and vowed to eat at all of them. Right now we are at 15 visited and five to go. Checkers is my favorite. Great food and cozy Italian ambiance. Great salads, pasta and other entrees.

We came here for dinner after wine tasting and needing some carbs. Great food. They have happy hour pricing until 6:30 so we ordered appetizers right away. Prawns and mussels were fabulous. Have gluten free pasta and the polenta cake was a must

Love their pizza, just like New York Style! Located in the downtown area. Service is good! We would certainly visit there again.

Lovely meal. We split a delish salad which was placed on two plates for us. Excellent pizza. Service was excellent.

My salad was good: I had a salad with salmon added to it (for extra). The salmon was not worth the additional expense---I can get better salmon in Florida where I live--but the salad was quite delightful otherwise. My husband had a pizza and said it was delicious. Our waiter was attentive and enjoyable. Overall, a nice evening.

We eat here every time we are in Calistoga. The food is delicious and they have really good bread. Their butternut squash ravioli is an excellent choice but every thing is good.
