Angele Restaurant: California cuisine meets French inspiration

A twenty minute walk from The Inn On First (won’t feel so long as you wind around the river path or enjoy window shopping along First Street and Main Street), is a lovely, very romantic restaurant, Angele(pronounce Awn-jell).  Named after her French grandmother, the owner, Bettina, provides a lovely ambience to enjoy a clean, quiet environment with beautiful food.

The menu changes seasonally which is what locals love, and rather than being strictly french, she brings french accents to the dishes without overwhelming you with cream and butter.  Fresh summer tomato salad with homemade ricotta, fried deviled eggs, and classic escargot are some great starters.  For dinner, homemade pappardelle with summer squash, or whole Branzino fish with carrot salad, or your traditional steak frites.

For those looking for a quiet, romantic restaurant, great food with lovely ambience, followed up by a quiet stroll along the Napa river after dinner, Angele is the place.
