Terrific, comfortable restaurant with wonderful food and service. I had asparagus with soft boiled egg and sauce to begin then a bowl of different fishes and seafood in a terrific sauce.

Bottega is delicious! It's modern Italian with a twist to weave in new types of ingredients and recipes. The service was high quality and the chef noticed my friend's pasta sat around and cooled down while she checked on her baby, so he had the server offer to have it remade. The best part of Bottega was this amazing Parmesan and olive oil spread that came with the bread. I literally couldn't get enough of it and bought some to take home with me! I shared the braised beef short rib with a friend and it was incredible. The meat literally melted in your mouth!

Delish I went to Bottega for lunch and was surprised that the prices were pretty decent, considering this is was a "celebrity" chef's big restaurant. On to the food... We started with three appetizers: calamari, tuna w/ salmon tartare, and covered polenta. All three appetizers were great. The calamari was cooked perfectly. The octosquiddies were super tender. It's annoying when the octopus or squid is overcooked and rubbery. This was not the case here. +1. The tuna and salmon was good too. Although the tuna was prepared simply in the shashimi style, it was enhanced by the fried basil leaves atop. The salmon tar tar was quite tasty as well. There was a hint of fennel and other stuffs my amateur pallet couldn't pick up...but overall, still quite good. The polenta was probably the best preparation of polenta I'd ever had (although I'll have to preface that by saying I don't eat polenta that often). It was SUPER creamy...probably because it had a stick of butter in it with lots of heavy cream...but hey, you only live once, right? Atop the polenta were some cremini mushrooms and fried garlic. You drizzle some balsamic vinegar reduction on top and BAM, instant +1. Entrees were good. It was like eating dinner at lunch. My fiancee ordered the gnocchi. Wow. They were the softest gnocchi we had all ever had. My fiancee's mom had the chanterelle mushroom risotto w/ quail. The quail tasted like a gamier/nuttier fried chicken. I had the pork/olive sausage. In terms of wow factor, the gnocchi probably stood out the most in terms of texture, but every dish tasted great. Dessert - I'd have to say the chocolate cake provided for my fiancee's mom's bday was really good. I'm not a chocolate cake connoisseur, but my fiancee said it was probably one of the best, if not the best, chocolate cake she had ever I'd probably defer to her comments and not mine on this topic. We also got the tiramisu, but that was just ok. It was more of an ice cream cake than tiramisu, which we weren't really expecting. All-in-all, the service was great, the food was excellent, and it wasn't too hard hit on the pocket book

So glad we stopped for lunch--the heirloom tomato salad was amazing, as was the grilled salad. The pastas were a bit overcooked, but the flavor was excellent. I particularly enjoyed the penne with rabbit. The staff were incredibly helpful, and the ambiance is very California, with lots of outdoor seating. It's a very enjoyable place to spend time. I would return for dinner.

Went here on basis of research but overall was very disappointed with meal. Location, atmosphere and service were all great but meal was at best a 5/10. Six in our party and only highlight was the chocolate dessert. Plenty of other options in Napa at same pricepoint.

I always have a lovely experience at Bottega! I love sitting by the fire on the patio, or the cozy dining room or belly up to the bar. There is not a bad table in the house and it seems like it is always the place to be. All the waitstaff and bartenders are extremely knowledgeable, professional and personable...not too stuffy. They've got personality, which I love. If you want a typical old style Italian restaurant with never-ending bowls of pasta and garlic bread, then this is not your place. If you want diverse flavors of extraordinary creativity with Italian roots, then you will love it. My absolute fave is the Polpette alla Griglia, which are fancy words for short rib meat balls. To-die-for. And who doesn't love truffle fries?? I always take visitors here as my go-to restaurant in the Valley. It's nice because it's in Yountville which isn't too far from Napa, but still amongst the vineyards. It's also got a lovely shop called Napa Style right across the path if you've got a home decor shopper in the group. All good stuff!

Quality is there, but proportions were way too small. The lamb was good, but was just two small 3x1 pieces on bone. Similar for the rest of the people in our group. Their gelato was very good as well as their chocolate lava soufflé.
