Bottega- Yountville, CA
Bottega is a rustic Italian restaurant located in the heart of Yountville. Owner and chef Michael Chiarello was named Chef of the Year by Food & Wine magazine in 1985, just three years after graduating from the Culinary Institute of America. I ate at Bottega my last night in Napa, and it was a great dinner with great service. Pastas are fresh and the short rib meatballs are a must for appetizers. If you’re in the mood for good Italian in Napa to go with your red wines, be sure to check out Bottega!
