Great place for Fresh Food – While riding my motorcycle up around Lake Baryessa and not too far from Napa, I also missed the sign to this small restaurant. Walking in, I realized that it was very small, perhaps 6 tables, but welcoming. A man, wearing a cook outfit welcomed me and I soon after realized that he was the whole show: greater, waiter, chef and cashier!
I perused the menu and it looked authentic, but then decided to let him suggest something. It was warm, so I sad outside on the patio and did not want to eat much. He served a delightful spinach salad quickly sautéed in balsamic vinegar and sprinkled with blue cheese. Bruschetta made the side dish: fresh cherry tomatoes and basil where nicely resting on country bread brushed with olive oil and garlic.
I minded having to restrain myself because whatever other folks were eating at another table made them moan in pleasure, but riding and heavy eating don’t go along. I’ll surely go back for more. If you are looking for a small, off the bitten path, very reasonably priced, authentic Italian restaurant, make the trip up to Spanish Flat and give it a try!
Best Italian – This is a great Italian restaurant. The pasta is cooked to perfection. The seafood dishes are light. My favorite is the scallops with risotto served with a yummy lemon sauce. The meal begins with warm crusty French bread served with a dipping sauce of olive oil, garlic and aged balsamic vinegar. The Caesar salad is the best I have ever had. Special feature seasonal produce. Recently I had the gazpacho which was cool and tasty made with a hint of grapefruit. It was unique and very good. This place is well worth the trip to enjoy a meal in a friendly atmosphere that has a distinct feel of Italy.
