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.

Has been absent from our rotation in the valley for a couple of years. Decided to revisit and was delighted we did. Some standout....The burrata with the root vegetable spaghetti, the pasta with the rabbit ragu and the smoked/braised shortrib. Also had an interesting dessert...doughnuts that were savory and sweet...a good change up to the ultra-rich deserts.

Naomi did a very good job. She was attentive, personable, informed, and helpful on the menu.
Food was good, though the calamari ordered for appetizer was pretty small.
Expensive wine list. Lowest priced bottle was $85.

The outdoor seating has a major problem with flys so it’s a huge turn off when your fighting flys your entire dinner.

Great outdoor dining if they can get rid of the flies. The tuna pasta salad was disgusting, really disappointing as I was excited for a fabulous brunch with friends. The tuna was described as StarKist by my friend, and it tasted like really salty chicken. Set my expectations way too high for such an elegant restaurant. My friends who ordered the cheeseburger ironically loved it. And my friend who ordered the pasta Bolognese thought it was just okay. Stick to the cheeseburgers and Brussels sprouts. There was also a menu mix-up, as some of us got the gluten-free menu, and only did my friend ecstatically shouted "quail & cheeseburger", did I know something was wrong. Brought it to the attention of our server, and his attitude was kind of like no big deal. Overall, an extremely blah experience in Yountville of all places. :/

Brussels sprouts were hard to cut into. We basically ate one each and left them. My calamari was rubbery/overlooked. My friends pasta bolognese was very good. The bread and garlic spread was amazing. Our gelato/sorbet dessert was excellent. Our server started off well, but seemed to get busy and then became unattentive. We had to wait a bit several times and try to flag him down. The restaurant was beautiful and energetic. Being there was fun. We just wished our food and their service had been better.

We were spending a night at the Napa and found this restaurant to be rated one of the 100 Best restaurant in the SF Bay Area. Our appetizers were nothing too special. We did like the pastas and the short rib. The rib was tender and full of flavor. The dessert was also quite good. Overall, this restaurant deserves to be among the best 100!

The dish my wife ordered came out cold and had to be returned and redone My dish was bland even though the fish was hot the toppings were cold.

It turned out there were two banquets going on at the same time and the kitchen was overwhelmed. The manager did apologize and offered us and gave us small and tasty polenta dish.

This Place was recommended to us by a foodie friend and we were disappointed.
