Diner Reviews
  • "Was recommended by a bartender to come to Barolo. So we went on a Sun eve and there were plenty of tables available. We had 2 appetizers. The 1st were the Arancini which I thought were just ok. They were different because it was filled with a pesto risotto, but even with that it lacked flavor. The 2nd app was the polpetine (meatballs) which I thought were great. Since I cook a lot myself I could say they were great. Sauce was rich with lots of flavor from cooking low and slow. As far as the sole (fish) nothing to talk about, tasteless and sauce was thick and pastey. Our server was great ! Would go back maybe for happy hour and give it a try with just the apps"

  • "We were very disappointed because our Fourth of July plans had been ruined due to the restaurant being closed. Barolo should improve their online reservation updates. How can you leave availabilities for your restaurant when you aren't even opened? We made reservations for July 4th, and supposedly Barolo was not even opened."

  • "Barolo was a good place for pizza, a little more casual than I expected. The pizza crust was thin and the toppings delicious. The corn topping was especially unusual. Overall the service was okay. The pizzas were fairly priced, though the wine seemed little high relatively speaking. We might return in the future."

  • "The best item on the menu was the Burrata, Procuitto, and Flatbread Appetizer, it was a delicious starter! For this reason, I would definitely recommend Barolo for wine or cocktails and appetizers! Dinner was just fair, I had petrale sole with white beans; the beans were undercooked and needed salt. My husband had the shortribs, they were under-seasoned as well."

  • "I love this place. Everything I have had on their menu has been wonderful, and I keep coming back for more. The team that works there is great, and you feel comfortable and like one of their friends. "

  • "The dinner was a special get together for some foodie friends and every course was a wow!. The house made salumi was outstanding, as was the salads, but the entrees really shined. The pasta and polenta sides were amazing and the meat selections were innovative and packed with flavors. While we were there, there were two large parties, so the place was very loud, so if I was there for an quiet romantic meal it would have been a lost cause. We went on a Saturday night, so maybe the noise level would be more subdued on a weeknight. I rate this restaurant as highly recommended. "

  • "Eaten at Barolo several times and the food is always wonderful. It was a Sat. night and service was fair. Had to ask for bread 2x. Waiter never checked back between courses. But in the end the waiter gets tipped on the level of service. The food is always great and we'll return."

  • "We arrived early and were seated promptly. The location is smaller than it looks from outside. Great antipasti was risotto balls served with rich sauce and cheese inside. The sole picatta was good and served with canalini. The short rib was melt in your mouth delicious combinded with spinach and risotto. Service was attentive but not overbearing. The waiter was helpful. Glasses never went empty."

  • "We could not have asked for a better place to celebrate our grandmother's 78th birthday! Our party received nothing but outstanding service from start to finish. The antipasti and bruschetta were perfect. My sister who is gluten-free was thrilled to see that as an option on the menu. The fried chicken was awesome, as was the petrale sole. For dessert we shared the best panna cotta ever, along with the house-made donuts. "

  • "The food was outstanding; quality style and presentation were of the highest standards. The restuarant staff were very friendly and attentive. Due to terrible traffic driving up from San Francisco we were 45 minutes (we called to delay our arrivle) for our reserved time. However, the staff was very understanding and handled the situation very professionally. I would, and have already recommended this restaurant to others as well as to the hotel staff at the Vintage."

  • "Barolo has become our go to restaurant! Dan the new manager is very knowledgeable when it comes to wine, he helped us make the perfect selection. Chef Angelo Chambrone seasonal menu always makes for something new and exciting to try. We shared the artichoke with asparagus risotto which was the perfect size for the two of us. The roasted beet salad was to die for, and the presentation was stunning. For my main course I had spaghetti carbonara with the best house-made pancetta. The warm donuts and panna cotta made for the perfect ending to our lovely meal. There is no doubt we will be back!"

  • "The beet and blood orange salad was an excellent combination of flavors. We had asparagus that was the first of the season and it was "to die for". The main entrees of swordfish and eggplant with smoked provolone were delightful. Definitely will return there!"

  • "Our party was debating about eating at Barolo versus somewhere else, but from the moment we walked into the place and with our first bite of the appetizer we were hooked. Unbelievable food and excellent and engaging service. Highly recommended and we will be back."

  • "This was one of my best meals ever. The food was prepared with care and thought. The wine list and service where tops. A great experience. A great asset for the city of Calistoga. A must visit when in town."

  • "Once again, Barolo was spot on! We were immediately greeted and seated by the friendly hostess. Our server promptly took our drink orders, and informed us on the nightly chef specials. We started with the pulled pork and brussel sprout bruschetta - delicious. We were stumped with what to get for our main course, so we decided to share amongst the three of us. The thin crust sausage and funghi pizza was awesome, just how I like it. The short rib was so unbelievably tender, and melt in your mouth good. Our third choice was the pork osso bucco with polenta. The dish was absolutely stellar. We ended the evening with a drink at the bar."

  • "It was a busy night, we waited 10--15 min for our table when we already had a reservation. It took 20 minutes to get water and I wasn't offered another drink."

  • "Very good food, awesome wine! Next time We're in town, will definitely visit this restaurant again! We had a great time as we enjoyed the ambience. Started off with great wine. Our food orders came and we quite surprised at the wonderful taste. More wine and more of our food. This made for great start to our weekend get-away to Wine country."

  • "Came in for a drink and bite to eat during a long weekend in Calistoga. The bar stands apart from the typical wine country decor, & that for us was a plus. There were obviously a lot of locals and repeat customers enjoying a drink and we too enjoyed a few cocktails and glasses of wine. We shared a salad ("Barbabietole") which was very well constructed, dressed, and tasted delicious. The pizza "(Funghi & house-made sausage") however was a near miss. The dough had an excellent flavor and consistency but the mushrooms were over-cooked and the pizza was a bit dry. Overall, a pleasant surprise, service was excellent and we will give it another go."

  • "My girlfriends and I absolutely loved our meal! Our server was very attentive, and made sure everything was just perfect. For starters we shared the brussel sprouts, and the tuna crudo (which was the best I've ever had). We all enjoyed entree's off the new menu. The cavatelli with butternut squash and sausage was mouthwatering. The swordfish was cooked perfectly, and the blood orange and fennel salad was amazing. My orrechiette with kale pesto was simply delicious. For dessert we shared the light and tasty panna cotta. Bottom line if you're in the Napa Valley you definitely need to check out Barolo. You won't be disappointed. I look forward for my next visit!"

  • "Sunday evening dinner, restaurant was not crowded. Too bad I don't recall the name of our server, she was great. Just the right amount of attention. Get the brussel sprouts - outstanding! Pan seared/roasted, so good I tried to replicate at home. Entrees were quite good, a pasta and beef dish, again waited too long so don't recall more details - a few good/fresh ingredients, cooked to perfection. Highly recommended."

  • "We ate here because the ads made it seem like a cozy restaurant. We were disappointed upon arriving to discover it's wine bar. Would not have been so bad but it's a small space dominated with a huge glitzy bar. There was nothing cozy about it. However the food and service were great."

  • "Just wish they still had the wine flights.... Food was delicious, but the $12 side of brussel sprouts was definitely overpriced."

  • "very, very good food, but it is a bar atmosphere, so it is definitely not at all quiet at dinnertime, hard to have a conversation, just go there and EAT. They offer a really tasty and healthy Beet Salad, (highly recommended), and their ceasar salad dressing is so good, lemony and garlicky. Pizza is cracker thin, which I love."

  • "The food was really good - we had the Osso Buca and Cavatelli for dinner along with brussel sprouts, ahi, bruschetta and swordfish for sampling. The food quality is great and the bar, vibe is fun but not obnoxious. I highly recommend this restaurant and will return when I'm back in Calistoga."

  • "Throughly enjoyed our dinner. My husband had the short ribs w/ creamed risotto. He said it was the best he ever had! I agree it was wonderful! I had a pasta dish that was yummy. I wish I could remember the name of it. The cesar salad was delicious and the bruchetta was amazing. Not typical..I believe it had a spiced gabanzo bean sauce, with toasted brussel sprout chips. Unique and so tasty! The chef is amazing!!!"

  • "We like Barolo's because it is walking distance from our hotel in Calistoga and the food is good. We were not exctremely hungry, so we went with two appetizers. The first was a plate of 5 meatballs (Beef and pork mixture) with a slightly spicy marinara sauce that were very good. We followed this up with a margarhita pizza made in the New York, very think crust style. The portions were perfect for two people and we came away very pleased with our choices."

  • "The food at Barolo was delicious, interesting and creative, however my entree was small. Service was slow with only a few waitresses attending to the entire restaurant. The restaurant space is overwhelmed with a huge bar in the middle of the room and tables along the periphery. It was nicely decorated with interesting artistic touches. The space is loud for quiet conversation, but I think this interesting place needs another try on a future trip to Calistoga."

  • "Great food, incredible dessert; very friendly & knowledgable service but at times very slow. Ran out of red wine glasses and we had to wait for the dishwasher to finish. That was a first. Food definitely made up for it though and I would go back if in the area - just plan on a very leisurely dinner."
