about ciccio

Ciccio offers a California-Italian inspired menu with wood burning pizzas, fresh pastas, and salads featuring elements from our nearby culinary farm. Ciccio is housed in a century-old Italian grocery store in Downtown Yountville and remains a longstanding intersection for locals and visitors.

Ciccio was opened in 2012 by Frank & Karen Altamura, and the family remains the owners today. Throughout the years, the Altamuras established a community-driven space, offering a warm welcome to those who live in and visit Yountville. Staying true to the hospitality they've instilled, an exclusive selection of Altamura Wine remains available on the Ciccio menu for guests to enjoy.

Reopening Ciccio as managing partners, Christopher & Martina Kostow act as caretakers- with Team Kostow overseeing all culinary, operations, and marketing of the restaurant. Christopher and Martina have been longtime diners and supporters of Ciccio and are honored to be a part of its legacy within the Napa Valley community.

The Altamura and Kostow families wish to welcome guests into this beloved restaurant for many years to come.
