A friend of mine is visiting Calistoga in early February and we'll get together for a meal. She asked me about Bosko's Trattoria. Has anyone been there?

I'm a fan of Wappo's but am looking for other Calistoga recommendations for lunch or dinner.

  1. Bosko's has a terrific mushroom pizza (shiitake, I think)
    with a caramelized onion base (instead of sauce) that is
    one of my favorite local dishes. It's fantastic with red wine. Beyond that, Bosko's is merely functional Italian and relatively uninspired.

    Wappo's is still the best, IMHO. You may also want to check
    out Flatiron, Brannan's (has gone downhill since they lost
    their chef), and Calistoga Inn (have had some tasty meals
    there in the last 6 months.)

    You may also want to do a search on Calistoga, and read
    the other comments already posted...

    Have fun!

    1. Calistoga Inn is a fun place with good food. Not all that impressed with Bosko. I find the pizza at Checkers better.
      Brannans has a new chef who is supposed to be great. Eating there tonight and will find out.
      There is also a new place, BarVino. Small plates and wines by taste or glass. Worth dropping by for a quick bite and glass of wine.
      Wappo always creative and good.
