Description & Atmosphere
Bottega, meaning "an artist's workshop or studio" in Italian, really lives up to its name — the restaurant's warm colorful decor, outstanding food (showcasing big, bold Italian flavors) and its creative food presentation, are pure artistry.
Located in the Valley's historic V Marketplace, Bottega is one of Yountville's hottest restaurants! The popular eatery is the brainchild of Emmy-award winning Food Network celebrity and cookbook author, Michael Chiarello (former chef of Tra Vigne in St. Helena.
Elegantly decorated in warm olive greens, chocolate browns and deep reds, Bottega has a fun, upbeat atmosphere. At night, the place is buzzing — the bar area and outside terrace lounge are both great places to have a drink, hang-out and people-watch, before or after dinner.
Bottega features two indoor dining rooms (seating 118 guests), a private dining/wine room and bar, five communal tables, and a spacious outdoor covered Terrazzo with two wood-burning fireplaces, lounge area and table seating.
The antipasta "Burrata" (creamy mozzarella burrata, beech mushroom conserva, and crispy red beets) is a work of art and it tastes scrumptious too!
Ditto Bottega's Risotto del Giorno with English Peas and the Grilled "angry" Prawns with heirloom tomato steaks, crispy garlic, basil, orange and Calabrian chili dressing, and lemon aioli — both entrees are incredible!
Signature Dishes... and more!
Enjoy a variety of Chiarello's fabulous Signature Dishes and delicious house-made Pastas.
Meat-lovers can't go wrong with the Piedmontese Beef Rib-Eye with sherry vinegar-honey glazed shallots — topped with a high pile of truffle-parmigiano fries. Satisfying indeed!
For a lighter touch, yet equally delicious, try the Wood-Oven Roasted Whole Fish with lemon, Forno roasted Delta asparagus and Romesco sauce.
Other standout menu options include Wild Alaskan Salmon, Twice-Cooked Natural Pork Chop, Confit of Half Duck, Toasted Trade Spice Fulton Valley Chicken Breast, Smoked & Braised Natural Short Ribs, Wood Grilled Rack of Grass-Fed Lamb... — are you getting hungry yet :)
Save room for one of Bottega's yummy desserts — the Chocolate Lava Cake is to-die-for! It's perfect for celebrating a birthday — "Buon Compleanno!"
Outside Covered Terrazzo
Bottega's spacious outdoor covered Terrazzo features two big wood-burning stone fireplaces with comfy lounge and table seating — the deep red awning overhead adds a warm glow, even during the day. During a recent visit, we enjoyed a lovely lunch on the terrace overlooking the gardens.
Private Parties & Special Events
Bottega is a fun restaurant for Private Parties, VIP Wine-Tastings, Corporate Functions and Special Events. A Private Dining/Wine Room and Bar seats 8 guests. Bottega can also host groups in the adjacent NapaStyle Store for parties of 20-80 — and throughout the Vintage Estate Properties for up to 350 people.
Our cousins, who were visiting Napa Valley from New York, dined at Bottega three times during their one week stay in Yountville. Like us, they can't wait to go back again :)
More than half of Bottega's wine list features local, small-production vintages from California — in addition to a variety of fine Italian wines.
