Lunch at Bottega on Friday afternoon

Dined 4 days ago

The food was creative, atmosphere perfect, service great. The only complaint was the parking, almost impossible to find an open space. Considering the number of people in the restaurant, many others were using the parking besides patrons.

Disappointed

We've been to Bottega may times and believed it to be the best Italian restaurant in the Bay Area. This time the food was way too salty and the pasta overdressed. Hope it was just an off day.

A gem!

Dined 6 days ago

This was our first time traveling to Napa. Bottega was on everyone's list for great food, great wine and an overall great experience. Being a fan of Michael Chiarello it was one of our first choices once we arrive. It did not disappoint. Our waiter was very genuine and explained the menu very well. We went with short rib meatballs, branzino and a pasta dish. We really enjoyed our experience.

Great Terrazzo Dining for Lunch

Dined on April 24, 2016

We came for a late lunch on Sunday April 24th. We have been to Bottega five times now. The food and atmosphere are always enjoyable and perfect for a special occasion. (Sons birthday) The Risotto special with the duck was enjoyed by my son and his girlfriend. The Ricotta gnocchi were divine. My husband enjoyed the seafood stew as well as the Octopus salad. I was unfortunately disappointed in the vegetable layered lasagna. I order this dish each time we come and this time it tasted re-heated and greasy. It was also a very dark brown color, indicative of a reheat. This dish is usually bright and savory.I should have sent it back but we were a party of 6 and I didn't want to disrupt the flow of our meal. Our server was very attentive and friendly, unfortunately I don't recall his name.

To start out the wine our server suggested was great. My favorite things was the brussel sprout appetizer and the cheese platter was great too. We got a couple first courses and second courses and each one was delicious. The bolognese, the chicken, the short ribs all of them had great flavor. I would come back here and recommend it to friends!

A warm, inviting restaurant in the heart of Napa

vip
Dined on April 21, 2016

I have eaten in Bottega at least fifty times over the years and have never had a bad meal. Everything is fresh and invitingly presented, as you would expect in a Michael Chiarello restaurant. But the distinguishing feature is the staff, which makes me feel a home. The general manager roams the floor making sure all is as it should be. The sommelier, Masi, is excellent and gracious, and the wait staff has been there for years.

First time!

Dined on April 20, 2016

I live in Napa and have always wanted to go to Bottega and finally took my mom for her birthday. The food was absolutely incredible and did not disappoint. It was very interesting to note that in the groups around us, women were not served first which in this type of restaurant really surprised me. It was a noisy atmosphere too which was not to our liking. But I would go back again and again for the food. Might try the patio next time for a quieter atmosphere.

Completely disappointing. With so many amazing local restaurants to chose from, this restaurant just seems lost now. Too big, too commercial, no soul. Service was awful, food was passable but we just felt like we were just a cog in a very big machine. No personal touch at all. I could name 10 other restaurants just in Yountville that I would rather eat at. I will not be coming back to this one again!

Birthday at Bottega

Dined on April 16, 2016

Reliable dining at Chef Chiarello's Place in Yountville. Never disappointed and we appreciate the Italian classics, but the Menu is getting a bit "long in the tooth"...would like to see an updated menu and a few more nightly specials featuring seasonal ingredients. Always enjoy the Raviolo di Uovo and a bottle of the delicious Giana's Zinfandel no matter what we decide to order.

Dined on April 14, 2016

This was our second trip to Bottega, the first being more than two years ago. Not much change. Food is still delicious with a good variety and selection. The so-called "energetic" noise level should be really interpreted as LOUD. This is not a romantic style of place. Our server was okay but was distracted on several occasions. The wine list is good, and seemed reasonable. Overall, still a good choice in Yountville.

I choose to eat here because Michael was my late mom's favorite chef to watch on T.V. She would tell us storr's of what Michael made today and we would ask her who are you talking about..thought it was about a family memeber or something..So while passing thru on our ride thru California it was a must eat in restaurant..If micheal reads this, i'm sure he has heard it a million times...you are spoken about at home like a family member

Group Lunch

We had a large group of 13 people on a rainy Saturday. We sat in the covered patio near the fireplace. It was perfect. Service was excellent. Everyone felt well taken care of. Sommelier helped us choose a nice Italian Chianti. Food was delicious - Shortribs, ravioli, fish, rabbit sugo, pastas, grilled octopus starter, doughnuts, deconstructed tiramisu, panna cotta.

We returned to Bottega this year after dining here a couple of years ago. Seems to have maintained it's appeal and excellent quality. It was rather cool so we ate inside, might have been a bit less loud outside but everyone was having a good time. Excellent octopus and really good presentation and preparation of my Branzino. Our server was really wonderful - professional in every way and really fun to visit with, both about the food and her upcoming move to Rome!
