Ciccio is a relative newcomer to the Yountville scene but is owned by a well-known Napa Valley family, The Altamuras. The family has been making Napa Valley wine since 1855, and have now joined the culinary offerings of the Napa Valley. With Ciccio, they are returning to their Italian roots and feature a menu that is driven by pizzas and pastas made in a beautiful wood fired oven and features locally sourced ingredients from their own gardens. The cozy environs allow you to sit down, relax and have fun while enjoying the seasonal and delicious menu. The Altamura’s also make their own wine that they feature in the restaurant, as well as a unique and delicious Negroni list. Bustling yet unpretentious, a trip to Yountville must include a meal and a beverage at Ciccio.
