We tried some of the “famed” restaurants in Yountville and found this to be as good without the drive. Plus, it was much easier to get reservations! Comfortable atmosphere, friendly staff and good food! The braised rib with pasta was excellent!

This is a well run Italian restaurant in a lovely venue with staff ensuring everyone’s needs were being attended to. Our server was outstanding. We shared a delicious Caesar salad. The spaghetti with clams was yummy as was the gluten free rigatoni with bolognese sauce....More

Creative dishes with good overall flavor. Can be noisy inside due to a lot off hard surfaces. Recommend you ask for table by the wall if hearing is an issue.

Response from Anjanette P | Reviewed this property |
Depends on time of year, how many in your party and time you want Usually, by summer, at least 2 to 3 weeks, by Harvest, a month out. Otherwise Dec thru March, no notice, Apr thru June a few days ahead is fine.
