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.
My sister and I were hanging out at Napa last Thursday, she recommanded Bottega because she and bunch of friends had been there before, and she wanted me to try it. Well, when we first went in, there was a baldy guy just standing there texting non-stop, we were looking at him and he finally looked up and took us to our table. Our waitress was really nice, greeted us right away, went over the menu with us. We ordered two antipasti and two pasta dishes. Antipasti were just alright, they desbribe them fancier than they actually taste. BTW, the girl who served us our dishes (not our waitress) had the crappiest face ever! Our pasta dishes were •Red Wheat Tagliarini Bolognese veal, pork & porcini mushroom sugo, rosemary, parmigiano reggiano and •Black Garlic Spaghetti Grande Head-on gulf prawns, hen-of-the-woods mushrooms, calabrian chili, citrus essence & bonito flakes , both dishes were super salty, we had to ask them to take them back. Then finally the same crappy face girl brought our dishes and told us that the chef did not add any salt. We tasted them and they were still SALTY! I could not finish that Bolognese, not only did it not taste sophisticated, it was can food like. My local Pasta Pomodora tastes a lot better than that. So, go to French Laundary, go to Ad Hoc or somewhere else, I will never go back to Bottega again.
