Laura Cunningham won unanimous approval from the Yountville Town Council for her new restaurant, Vita (Italian for Life). The existing building which in its past has been Mama Nina’s; Frankie, Johnnie and Luigi Too; and most recently PJ Steak will be completely remodeled changing everything. The new space will be a 130 seat Italian restaurant serving dishes from the Sicilian region of southern Italy inspired by Laura’s grandmother, Vita Morrell.
Besides accolades from all Councils members, the new building received nearly unanimous support from other residents of Town including adjacent businesses and neighbors. In my humble opinion, it will take 12-15 months to complete the bureaucratic stuff and construction before it opens. I can’t wait for this will be another great place to hang out at. Bottega is so hot it is often hard to get a seat at the bar for a nibble and glass of wine.
