Description: 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.

“Exceptional evening”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Lovely porch area where we had a couple of fantastic bottles of Rose and some meat/cheese plates. Excellent wine list, as expected. Pastas were all terrific, particularly a farfalle with some type of crab, peas, and a cream sauce. The pork was truly mind blowing. We had no room for dessert, which was a tragedy. I'd go back in a heartbeat, and the little town is wonderful to walk around before or after your meal.

Amazing food and service! Highly recommended to visit when you are in the Napa area!

My wife and I really enjoyed Bottega, the food was delicious and we just loved the atmosphere. Very relaxing and casual. Perfect place to hang with friends or date night.

“Fantastic (with kids too!)”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

Incredible food. Best pork I've ever had! Perfect, friendly and attentive (but not overly so) service! Generous glasses of wine. Out of this world desserts! Try the lemon verbena gelato or the tiramisu. Top of my list of places to come back to again. Thank you Bottega!

We only had a short stop in Yountville during our wine tour of Napa and Sonoma Valleys and wandered into Bottega for lunch. They graciously accommodated our schedule and the pasta dish I had was original and tasty. My friend's broccoli salad was as well.

“Restaurant is good, but try the wine tasting”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

We had booked a wine tasting at Chiarello Vineyards in the Marketplace building next to Botegga and started by taxing 6 wonderful organic wine with a selection of cheese and meats. While tasting the wines, Michael Chiarello popped by to chat to use for 10 minutes about his vineyard. When we had finished we walked over to the restaurant and had a great meal (not sure about the vegetarian Lasagne) and another bottle of our chosen wine from the 6 (Roux Petit Sirah). If you only do 1 tasting in Napa, I would suggest this, followed by a meal at Botegga.
