authentic Italian food!
Authentic and delicious Italian food. Example - the pizzette with anchovies came as a delicious, thin crust pizzette with delicate herbs and olive oil and fresh, marinated (in lemon, herbs, and oil) anchovies. Just like Italy. Great wine selection, too.

This was a fantastic find!
Love, love, love this restaurant! Don't know how we missed it in years past. The Caesar salad was outstanding and the roasted asparagus was to die for! All the pasta entries were nice, but not oversized portions! Very reasonable prices too! We liked it so much that we ate there two days in a row!

Yummy in Calistoga
This intimate restaurant in downtown Calistoga offers an excellent selection of yummies. Staff is friendly but slow so sit back and enjoy a leisurely meal.

lovely setting and nice folks
wide open windows looking out on Calistoga's sweet main street. Warm hostess greeting, and wonderfully attentive waiter. beet salad needed oranges with taste, but the homemade sausage pizza was wonderful. A great place to sit and enjoy the small town scene

A neighborhood Italian cafe
We enjoy the food and the contemporary atmosphere. Barolo offers just what we want in a neighborhood cafe: some outdoor seating, a nice wine list, tasty food at reasonable prices.

Barolo, a Calistoga Gem
Quality food, attentive service and very reasonable prices highlighted our meal at Barolo. Careful attention was paid to the preparation and presentation of each of our courses; the food was delicious. My wife and I both agreed that the risotto with mascarpone was the best we have had in our travels. The hostess had made note that we were celebrating our anniversary and gave us the choice of two tables she had held so we had the option of an intimate table in the back away from the bar. From beginning to end, Barolo provided a wonderful dining experience.

Our party of 4 asked the table preparer what he liked to eat there. He gave us a couple of recommendations that we tried and we liked them the best. We had appetizers, entrees and dessert and all were quite good and had lovely presentations. Keep up the good work. We will return.

Great food but...
Didn't feel that having a reservation on open table was any help because when we were finally to be seated, we were asked, "inside or out"? Told the hostess we had reservations and she replied, "inside or out"? Our waitress came from the other side of the restaurant so maybe this wasn't her usual section but the service was spotty at best, but the food was excellent. Would give it another try just for the food, service can't always be fair-to-poor, can it? Too many great sounding options to try for 2 people and the wine list had 4-5 Sangioveses listed( wife's fav), and there are a few local wineries that they waive corkage for as well. At least the kitchen didn't have an off night. Maybe next time it'll be all 5 stars.

Loved the fritto misto. Would
Loved the fritto misto. Would have had it for dinner if I had known! The lamb pasta was a little gamey (strong). Portions were fine. Wish we had gone there twice instead of the place next door.

Friendliest manger and staff ! Very solid basic Italian happy place food at reasonable prices. The kind of place every town needs.

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.

A great find
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!!!

First Timer to the Restaurant
This is a great spot in Calistoga and I without hesitation would simply say... "Go check it out friends, could be a keeper!"

Very good food and fun vibe
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.

very, very good food, but
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.
