“Busy little restaurant”
Reviewed October 8, 2011

We were told this was the best place to lunch in calistoga. Arrived on a Thursday lunch time to a fairly busy restaurant. We were seated straight away at a window table, nice selection of food and local wines. The food was as expected although drinks were very slow, in fact I had to ask twice to get the drink I had ordered.

I loved the window seat as I am a great people watcher but I
Did find all the dead flies in the dirty windows a little off putting when you are trying to eat.

All in all a pretty decent restaurant.

“Always a good place to get a tasty meal that has great value”
Reviewed September 26, 2011

Usually dine here at least twice a year. A great dining spot that has good food at a decent price. Menu doesn't change a lot and that makes my wife happy as the polenta is a favorite.
A good selection of wine by the glass, although the pricing is a little high.

“The best Espresso”
Reviewed August 5, 2011

This little restaurant has the best Espresso we have had. We always have an espresso after a meal and most of the time we are disappointed. Checkers had the best espresso. Their food was quite excellent. I had the Lamb sandwich and my wife and kids had various sorts of pizza. All of the food was fresh and tasted great. The lamb which the waitress recommended melted in your mouth. They did not have a variety in their menu but besides that I would go to this restaurant again. Great service and even better food.

“Pizza Magnifico!!”
Reviewed July 21, 2011

Fantastic little joint off main St. Easy walk to our hotel and the pizza was light and crisp, great meats and just the right amount of sauce. It's a 50's diner meets Italian casual....
