It’s got a wealth of good food and wine, so there’s no need to travel far. But probably the biggest reason for the town’s reputation for relaxation is the centuries-old geothermal activity that makes it the valley’s spa headquarters.The native Wappo people were the first to discover this area’s natural hot springs and use them for healing.

Ciccio is family owned and operated by Frank & Karen Altamura and their two sons, Frank and Giancarlo. Located in the heart of the Napa Valley, Ciccio features a dynamic, yet simple menu of pizzas and Italian entrees driven by our beautiful wood-fire oven and locally sourced ingredients.
Our family’s passion for food comes paired with our wines from Altamura Vineyards and Winery, located in the bucolic portion of Napa Valley known as Wooden Valley. Here, at the Altamura Ranch, we make our family of estate wines, including those featured at Ciccio. The “ranch” has been in our family since 1855. It not only produces our world class vineyards, but a bounty of vegetables and herbs as well!
We hope that you can sit down, relax, and have fun while enjoying our food and wine!
