“I liked this place”
Reviewed February 13, 2010

Had lunch here on the Saturday before Valentines. A little crowded and the staff was hustling, but our order was taken promptly. The clam chowder was surprisingly tasty for an Italian restaurant. The old standards, pizza and lasagna, had fresh ingredients, were well seasoned, hot, and of good size. The tiramisu was as good as my wife makes. The pasta lunch specials are very good value (about $11) .

“great italian food”
Reviewed December 25, 2009

Their menu is surprisingly varied for an italian restaurant abroad, they did not serve any spaghetti bolognese, which was a relief, but different and very tasty recipes taken from regional italian cuisine. I normally would not choose italian restaurants when not in Italy as they are generally overpriced and not italian at all, but this was really great. they had a proper pizza oven which made a yummy pizza. As it was not lunch time, it was not very busy so the service was quick and attentive. Definitely a good choice.

“Pretty good Italian food”
Reviewed December 22, 2009

We had dinner in December 2009. One of the better Italian restaurants we have been to lately - All courses were very tasty - the spaghetti with meatballs was especially good. Service was great and nice atmosphere. We would definitely return.

“Good service, good food”
Reviewed December 1, 2009

My daughter and I ate here while we were in Calistoga. They offered a good selection of food and wines at reasonable prices. The food was delicious and nicely presented. The service was attentive without being intrusive.

“Not worth the stop”
Reviewed September 25, 2009

We were terribly underwhelmed with Boskos. The food was 'OK'. The meatballs and chicken were both quite dry. The sauce on my pasta was tasty, but in my 'lunch' version of the meal I had ~10 noodles of linguine in total, so not much to soak up the sauce. Every other place we at in wine country was outstanding, so this was a big disappointment. We were also kind of grossed out by the giant, clearly reused table to table bowls of Parmesan cheese.
