An award winning chef/vintner & Food Network host, Chiarello celebrates his Italian roots and the Napa Valley with a menu echoing his long practice of using the finest locally/sustainably produced food. Located in Yountville, in the heart of the Napa Valley, Bottega’s extensive wine list represents hard-to-find favorites of the Valley and interesting Italian selections.

The inviting dining room is accented with reclaimed antiques, warm fabrics and eclectic light fixtures lending to the restaurant’s old world comfort.

“Awesome food, great atmosphere.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

This is not my first visit to Bottega and it will not be my last. I went without reservations and still sat immediately. Beautiful decor, great service in the bar area and top notch food quality.

“Loved the atmosphere”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Wanted to go here after a friend had went two weeks before. It was as good as she said. I had the duck, cooked three way and the hubby had the short ribs. Both were delicious! I would definitely recommend.

“Nice Italian, little bit pretentious”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

We went with friends who had to book weeks in advance. Every restaurant in Yountville seems to be booked solid at the weekend, even off-season. The starter - Fried Green Eggs and Ham, which was roast belly pork strips, coated and deep fried soft-boiled egg, and a spinach paste was superb. Unusual, but a brilliantly put together dish.

The mains we had were all Pasta-based and were great, if a little rich for my tastes. The room was busy and friendly, but the waiter was over-acting his socks off, which was irritating. Not cheap, but this is Yountville, where most Chefs have a book out, and most restaurants have a michelin star or two.

“Raviolo”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

We stopped here for lunch, Valentines weekend and decided to eat at the bar. The service was quick, professional and friendly. The food did not disappoint, we had seen this restaurant and it's famous chef on television and wanted to try the food ourselves.
The octopus was great, the brussell sprouts were better and the raviolo was outstanding. The bar has a small but nice selection of single malt scotches as well which pleased me.
A lovely lunch!!
