While out and about we needed to take a break from wine and asked a host where she recommended _ Checkers . This was a good suggestion. We ordered the artichoke dip and the combination pizza. Both highly recommended

We were a party of 5 and had dinner after a day of sight seeing. When the bill arrived, it had a 18% gratuity added. It is "their policy" to add that to parties of 5 or more. Sure doesn't give the server any incentive to give good service. We didn't get good service and the food was so so.... More

Arrived after visiting some local wineries and needed some lunch to keep us going till tea. We ordered 2 sandwiches - philly cheese steak and the club. You got the choice of either soup of salad to go with it -we sampled both and were ok. The sandwiches were large (as much of American portions are) and were tasty enough.... More

Food was just o.k, but service was great. Having never been to Calistoga before we just happened to pick Checkers for dinner. It was a Friday night and had no reservations but we got seated right away. It is a nice resturant, comfortable seating and service is prompt. Having never been to this resturant before and only ordering 3 things... More

Called in for a light dinner after a day on the Napa Valley Wine Train. Service was brisk & friendly and the delicious pizzas arrived promptly & piping hot. Three sizes available so Madame chose a small and I took a medium.

I am kind of a simple eater, primarily (but not strictly) vegetarian, and some of the trendier restaurants have offerings that I consider bizarre or that I just can't even THINK of. Thankfully, Checkers has the kind of menu that I like, with several meat-free options and simple, fresh food with some modern touches. I ordered the rigatoni, my daughter... More

After a very long day of wine tasting, my husband and I frequently go to dinner at Checkers. The service is always super quick and the food is really good - pizza surprisingly good for CA.

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.

Thank Jon C
