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.

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

Would not go back!!! Food and service were very disappointing. No one at our table (4) was impressed with their dinner, mine was a minus on a scale of 1 to 10. Not sure if short of help but for a restaurant who markets their business as up scale experience the service was far from satisfactory. Could have been just one if those nights BUT they will not see my Amex again.

The ambience is great and service was very professional. The rabbit rigatoni was excellent. The shaved brussel sprout salad had an overpowering lemon flavour which ruined the dish and the dehydrated sausage on the ravioli had an excessively strong paprika taste. Flavours just need to be better balanced.

Where to start. Too expensive, with portions that were so small I had to grab my readers. Honestly, I thought it was a joke upon the waiter first presenting the first course. A bowl of soup that was $12 and had maybe five table spoons in it? No to mention it was luke warm. Followed by chicken that was accompanied by what? A couple of green peppers and oil? Ugh. The water...no ice, no lemon and in metal containers that were unappetizing.

Why do they let people bring their dogs to the table and ON THEIR LAPS? Really? Leave Fido at home. I don’t want that when I’m eating.

Not impresssed at all. I’m compelled to let you know as well...the salad was SCRIMPY and rabbits eat more for their breakfast than what was served. Trying to ride on his name, Michael the chef apparently thinks everyone leaves happy. Us? Thrilled (to know we were not coming back or referring). Go somewhere else. There are plenty of restaurants that fill you up with good food, good service and money left in your wallet. Lunch for two costs a whopping $165.

First, great food! The food is innovative without being trendy. Wait staff are extraordinarily attentive and friendly without being in the least intrusive. A wonderful place for a special occasion, especially with your One-and-Only. The atmosphere is comfortable and warm, and quiet enough to actually have a conversation. We love this place, and would recommend it to anyone who likes wonderful food, exceptional service and a civilized atmosphere.

We went for Easter lunch and in honor of that I ordered a raviolo because it has an egg in it. It was delicious! We also order fried pasta, risotto and pork roast and they were equally delicious!!

Food, ambiance and service were excellent Fruitti di Mare was amazing. Huge prawns mussels, clams and calamari all in a delicious tomato broth with a giant crouton and saffron ailoi. Also had Hamachi crudo served on the a Himalayan salt block. Not to be missed.

My wife and I dined at Bottega for our anniversary. We were disappointed. They gave us an index card with Happy Anniversary written on it. They also wrote the same in Italian in our dessert plate. If we had not ordered, and paid for dessert, the index card would have been the only acknowledgement of our anniversary from this expensive restaurant. We had gone to Mustard’s for lunch, and they gave us two glasses of champagne. Despite the good quality of the food and service, we have several other restaurant choices we will patronize before considering Bottega again.

This is one of our very favorite restaurants anywhere not just the Napa Valley. Service was not good at all very slow and they were not busy. Server spoke only a few words, was very slow to take our order, just didn't seem to be there mentally. Very tall gentleman. The busser gal was fabulous. We went for a late lunch. Pasta dish didn't have much flavor. I think it was just an off day. Plus, we ate the French Laundry the night before - so my senses may have been jaded!

What a lovely dining experience. Everything we had was delicious, but my most favorite thing here is the truffle fries. It’s not always on the menu but you can ask for it! The portions for the main dishes are just right but the antipasti—only good for about 1 person. We ordered 2 different ones for the 3 of us. Desserts we had were the sorbet and panna cotta. The sorbet is good for sharing. The panna cotta- only good for half a person! Would I come back is the ultimate question and definite yes!

We enjoyed sitting outside in a lovely patio. Our appetizer: calamari was soggy, not crisp and lacked flavor, the meatballs were so ordinary and had a 1/2 teaspoon of sauce it looked silly. My dinner was not hot and lacked any exceptional flavor. It is expensive, and not worth the money.
Very sorry we chose this restaurant. Hope it improves.

This can only be summed up in one word. WOW! The food was absolutely amazing and the wine was perfect. If you are craving a good meal in Napa this is the spot. Reservations highly recommended but if you are in the area you should not miss this. Everything was perfectly prepared and a true 11/10 type restaurant.

Bottega never disappoints. We were celebrating birthdays during a girls weekend in wine country. While we had to wait a little longer, Michael Chiarello made a point of coming out to apologize and introduce himself. We also received complimentary prosecco. It was a fabulous experience as always.

Actually I was disappointed. It was a busy night during crush, but I had called months in advance for a good table for a 60th birthday. We had to wait to be seated (not a big deal) but then they were going to put 4 of us at an 8 top round table in the corner of the back room. We waited for a better table and by the time we sat down, we were starving. We didn’t get waited on for some time and asked the waiter for bread for the table. He came back and plunked down two huge loaves of bread. It was so in our face. We felt like we were “in the way” instead of paying customers. Such a bummer for a 60th birthday celebration. I’ll never go back. There are too many fun places to dine in the valley.

Second time here and the food & service don’t disappoint! Sat on the patio last time with a small group and this time as a couple—preferred the scene for a small group (feels more like a place to celebrate with friends than have a romantic dinner). Would definitely come back.

Love this restaurant. Did not love our server. He seemed annoyed with us for being there. We had a 7:45 reservation on a Wednesday. Maybe he had a rough day. The food was fantastic. Just not as great as it could have been since our server was such a downer.

Great ambiance though tough for conversations because of volume. I had the ricotta gnocchi which was only ok and my husband had a rustic chicken dish that was tasty. Wait staff was all over the place. Very nice but not hugely attentive. Our bus boy or in this case "man" was on the mark. The hostesses had trouble getting anyone's name or reservation time correct.

Our meals were served cold! The seafood dish (like a cioppino) tasted awful....watery, too spicy, and had something unrecognizable in it..we think it may have been bread. They tried to heat up the bolognese that was served cold by microwave....worked for one plate, not another. Their service for the table was not the best. Never had refills of water the whole time. They did comp our 2 cold meals....but will never return there. There are plenty of better choices in Napa!!
