Bottega Napa Valley
Bottega Napa Valley
“What keeps me motivated is not the food itself but all the bonds and memories the food represents.” -CHEF MICHAEL CHIARELLO
“Bottega offers an unmistakably Italian sense of style in a stunning Napa Valley setting. Dine outside on our expansive patio, complete with two stone fireplaces to warm you on the coolest Napa nights. Inside, you’ll find a warm, rustic setting adorned with Venetian plaster, Murano glass chandeliers, soft leather chairs, and ample tables — the perfect atmosphere for a meal and an experience to remember. Like our food, our interior celebrates both the rustic and the refined: Olive greens, chocolate browns and deep reds create a warm and welcoming atmosphere palette. We also offer two indoor dining rooms with a private dining/wine room and bar, as well as five communal tables made of forty year-old timbers, Calcutta d’Oro marble, and recycled concrete.”

Arthur Doyal-Coutinho, Chef de Cuisine
When I was just getting started, I traveled to Italy to work with a very talented chef. I knew I wanted to focus on Italian cuisine from then on. Life in the kitchen has broadened the way I view the world and life in general. No matter what culture or nationality a person is, we can always communicate though food. It truly is the international language. I met my beautiful wife Skye while working at Bottega. My hidden talents? Skateboarding and playing the electric guitar. Waking up every day in Napa Valley and being surrounded by food and wine all day is inspiration enough.
