About Bottega Napa Valley
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.

Bottega Napa Valley Ratings and Reviews

Outstanding from start to finish. The entire staff, and there were many who provided service, was great. Special kudos to our waiter, I believe Mark, for an exceptional experience. I causally mentioned it was our anniversary and he produced a special dessert treat.
We have been there several times and this was the best. Looking forward to our next visit.

We ate at several high end restaurants for our three day Napa area get away and Bottega was my favorite. The menu was very creative - I started with the pork belly with crispy soft cooked eggs - each bite blended so nicely. The duck confit was succulent and cooked to perfection. It was such a large portion we had duck sandwiches for lunch the next day. The wine list had a good variety at the mid-level price range, which is appreciated. The ricotta cheesecake finished off the evening meal perfectly. The service was very attentive. Great end of summer evening to celebrate our anniversary.

My wife liked the Uovo Raviolo with Truffle but thought the pasta was a bit too thick on the raviolo. Believe it or not, there are people in the world like me who don't care for truffle or mushrooms. If you're one of those people, good luck, your choices are very limited. Sorry but I disagree calling a sauce Bolognese with veal, pork & porcini mushrooms instead of beef. Wine list was good, service was great.

We were looking forward to Bottega on this Napa vacation and were really disappointed in the overall experience. My wife ordered the polenta under glass expecting great things. What she got was a very small serving of mediocre polenta, little cheese flavor and hardly any mushrooms. Really disappointing. We also ordered the meatball and I guarantee Michael's mother would never had made lead balls like these.
All of the pasta dishes were odd combinations. I ordered black and yellow fettuccini with lobster and it was just passable. The pasta was thick and chewy instead of al dente with very little lobster.
At this point we were afraid to order dessert and went across the street to Bouchon.
Although this can happen anywhere, our server was aloof and inattentive. Usually they are prt of a good experience.

The meal was delicious and I appreciate the Happy Birthday note they gave my mother-in-law (when making the reservation on Open Table I said it was her birthday in the note at the bottom- and they actually read it!). Bottega is pretty pricey for the portion size, but that's the Valley for you! The raviolo with egg inside was insanely good! Very rich but so yummy and cutting into it and letting the yolk drain out onto the plate was . I also could have eaten 15 of the short rib meatballs...would come back just for those!

Bottega remains my favorite restaurant in Napa.
Service and food are consistently outstanding. Upon arrival you are served warm bread with an olive oil & cheese mixture which is absolutely delicious. My husband and I shared the meatball appetizer. For the entrees- I had the short ribs while my husband had the chicken alla mattone.
We love it here and highly recommend to everyone.

Friends recommended Bottega and then gave us a gift certificate for our anniversary. The food was very, very good. We shared the calamari first, done crisp as we requested. My husband had the duck, again, very very good. I had the fish of the day, petrale sole. It was done perfectly, sauteed and serves in a light sauce, just perfect for lunch. not too filling
The servers were very well trained. A pet peeve of mine is when dishes are cleared before all diners are finished. not the case here. The waiter was attentive but not intrusive. Water glasses filled in a timely manner. The plates were not cleared until we were both finished.
I was sorry we could not get a table outside, since there were some large tables nearby that were noisy. i would definitely return, it's only 45 minutes from home, easier than going to the city, and the food and service rival any city restaurant.

We were visiting from Montreal and this restaurant was recommended to us. We really were pleased with our experience and would recommend it to everyone. The menu presents a nice variety of plates and very tasty. If we come back to Napa we will certainely return to Bottega restaurant!

Has a chain restaurant kind of feel when you come in, but the food goes above and beyond. Obviously a tourist place, but can't get past the fact that it was one of the better meals I had all week. Go. Everything tells you not to, but the food alone was worth it.

Food was awesome, service was terrible. I have never experienced such awful service, the waiter did not check on us at all, saw him three times the whole evening – to take our order, drop off order and drop off check. The larger table party next to us was constantly waited on while we were ignored. Although the food was delicious, the experience was not enjoyable and I would never return or recommend to anyone.

Outstanding food in a great setting- the waitstaff were very attentive- the front desk was rude- never looked up to say hello when arrived and gave bad table for wedding anniversary- nicer table clearly available- this after calling to remind re anniversary and putting in reservation- great food, great waitstaff, need help upfront
