Italian
Chef Michael Chiarello has returned to his culinary roots by creating seasonal farm-to-table Italian cuisine reflecting the bold flavors of Chiarello’s heritage in his signature style 1st made famous at Tra Vigne in the 90’s. 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. Chiarello restored the integrity of an old 1800’s estate by uncovering beautiful hard wood floors, timber beams, old brick walls and windows. The inviting dining room is accented with reclaimed antiques, warm fabrics and eclectic light fixtures lending to the restaurant’s old world comfort.

Had a terrific and romantic dinner celebrating my husband's 40th birthday on a weekend getaway. The restaurant staff had a birthday card sent to the table to add an extra special personal touch. Service and food were both terrific, and the wine was amazing as well! The Sommelier came by and made some great recommendations for wine to pair with our meal choices. It was a wonderful night!

Food was excellent. We sat outside on the covered patio, and the orange awning cast a strong orange glow underneath it, creating a strange ambiance.

The only reason why it was not a five star overall was because the service was poor towards the end of our stay. I believe that they were between shifts and so the bartender took our order. But once he dropped off our meals there was no follow up and we were left to harass other personnel for additional items. To make matters worse, the credit card holder in the billing wallet was damaged and did not secure our credit card and so it was lost somewhere in the restaurant after the bill had been processed. Fortunately we had other methods of payment to use so our vacation was not disrupted but it was a cloud on an otherwise pleasant occasion. With that said, the food, the ambiance and the door personnel were all great and we will definitely return to this restaurant.

AMAZING DINNER EXPERIENCE! We had a party of 4 to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. It was one of the best meals we've ever had. Every bite was incredible. Great portions and unbelievable flavor! Afterwards, the only word to describe the entire meal was "EPIC". We will definitely be back!!!

It is definitely one of our favorite places to go to when we visit the Valley. But as with any restaurant, service and really elevate your dining experience. We sat at the bar where we have sat many times. Service was just ok.
Our food was good. The short rib meatballs were ok but not my favorite. We shared the ravioli which was very good although the pasta dough itself was a little thick for my liking. Our main course was chicken which was delicious. The cauliflower was also very good. We will be back but may try and sit in the dining room again.

Michael Chiarello is a genius! His use of local produce to combine into Italian-based delicacies is phenomenal. Fresh, deep, lingering tastes; magnificent wine selection, casual did not disappoint! We would have appreciated a less chatty waiter. He shared way too much about himself without us even soliciting.

The food was amazing. The gnocchi were literally like little pillows of yum.

It was when I asked the waitress a question about the menu that I had an issue. When I asked if something on the menu was spicy her answer was, “I lived in Southeast Asia. Nothing’s really spicy to me.” Not quite an answer.... After my second question between Brussels sprouts and artichokes she answered then said, gotta go. Turned and walked away. The artichokes were delicious, as was the rest of the food. But such as off attitude.

The hostess was beautiful and sweet. The manager stopped by a few times to check on us.

We have been there before and will for sure go back. I’ll just take a peek at whose section we sit in next time...

This was the first horrible experience & sadly probably our last experience at Bottega. My husband & I have always enjoyed many meals here in the past so I thought it would be perfect for my husband & our best friends birthdays for lunch. The food as usual was good but the service was the worst we’ve ever experienced there. I’m talking over 15 min for cocktails that we ordered before our starters but I guess they would have gotten to us faster if the order was remembered to be put in & a menu that was given to one of the birthday guest that was on the floor from a previous party. It was noticeable that things weren’t going well but sadly the only one that seemed to notice it was the servers assistant because our server, the manager & the GM were too busy paying attention to the two tables on both sides of us, I guess maybe we were just in their blind spot. Super disappointed with this experience & again it’s too bad because the food is good.

I have been wanting to eat at Bottega for a while and had the opportunity to do so during a recent trip to the valley.
The meal was outstanding, the wait staff super friendly, the setting relaxed and inviting and found the price reasonable.
I wish I lived closer so I could go on a regular basis.

He is extremely knowledgeable about food and about the menu and is always is good about explaining how the food is prepared and what the ingredients are.

Bottega is consistently an excellent dining experience. The atmosphere is very "wine-country" with comfortable seating and well spaced tables (both inside and patio). The food is absolutely delicious, beautifully prepared, and with a wide selection to choose from. The staff is wonderful: attentive, helpful, friendly, and courteous. Our server had some terrific suggestions when we had difficulty with our selections and the sommelier was excellent with his help, as well. We highly recommend Bottega!
