Italian in Yountville

The small, frequently changing menu at this family-owned Italian place is dependent on the season and likely to include just a couple of veggies, pastas, meat options and four to six wood-fired pizzas. But wow! You cannot go wrong, especially if you're lucky enough to show up when whole sea bass and garlicky pea tendrils are available.

There's a negroni bar and many delicious wines from the owner's Altamura Ranch, along with a prix-fixe chef's dinner (by limited reservation) that includes menu and off-menu favorites for visitors to choose from.
