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.
My daily routine is basically put on the high heels and go. But just between us, I prefer flip-flops on the beach. ∞ The Tyrrhenian Sea off the northern coast of Sicily is the most grounding and beautiful place I have seen. ∞ Favorite music? Alicia Keys for energy. Rod Stewart for love. Foo Fighters for inspiration. ∞ Every day we have the choice to be happy, so that’s what I choose. ∞ Beautiful people, food, and wines are my inspirations. ∞ I’ve been lucky to learn from inspiring women who took time to work with me and help me learn and improve.
I love this Duke Ellington quote: “There are two kinds of music. Good music, and the other kind.” ∞ Each day is a new challenge for me to deliver great service to our guests and provide them lasting memories of their time with us. ∞ Rome is my favorite place in the world. The history, the food, the markets, and the fountains. St. Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican Museum. Layer upon layer of history and culture. ∞ I’m inspired by being able to collaborate with incredibly talented people, from chefs, managers and sommeliers to architects, designers, and artisans to create a unique environment and experience.
