La Bottega is housed in an old, brick winery, set back from the main strip, and snuggled up next to Michael Chiarello’s Napa Style cooking store (which, I hate to admit, I do like). This vine-covered Italian eatery is almost always full, it seems…And for good reason. The food is good, the patio inviting. I would recommend sitting next to the stone fireplace on the patio for drinks and small plates from the bar. The interior is a rustic, warm, deeply-hued dining room which is comfortable, but the noise and size take away from the overall experience. On a good note, the wine list is fun, indoors or out, and has some interesting discoveries.
