Fodor's Review

On the huge veranda of a historic barn, a languid air of well-fed ease wafts around Bodega. Tow-headed children run around in linen frocks against the backdrop of jagged mountains. Up close, an enormous blackboard announces stunning daily specials like gazpacho and figs with parma ham or tuna carpaccio in a sesame dressing. Stay away from more exotic choices like the Canadian scallops, and stick with what is simple and likely local: the daily line fish is succulent and

well dressed, the pastas perfectly flavored, and the venison a dream. Desserts are fantastic, so save space. In summer, Sunday lunch can be booked a week in advance, the rest of the week can be more calm. The vibe (and service) is casual all the way.
