Serves meat, vegan options available. Italian restaurant on the town's main drag. The broccoli penne dish is vegan suitable. Other dishes, like bruschetta, salads, pizza, can be requested vegan. Staff will accommodate.

A Few Vegan Options - Edit

This cute little place has a few vegan options. They also have gluten free options for pizza and pasta. They accommodated for my oil free and garlic free preferences which was nice. Portion was a little small for the gluten free broccoli pasta, but looked bigger for the wheat pasta. Pizzas looked pretty good, you could get a veggie with no cheese and that could be an option.

Good option for vegans in Calistoga - Edit

My spouse and I just spent the weekend in Calistoga, which is definitely a challenging place to be vegan. I was thrilled to find Checkers, which doesn't look much more vegan-friendly than the next place (even the salads have animal products in them), but when I went in and spoke with the waitress she and the staff were very happy to accommodate us. We ordered the bruschetta without cheese, the greek salad without cheese, and the penne broccoli. The bruschetta was absolutely fantastic -- among the best we've ever had. The salad was good and a decent size. The pasta was also good and quite filling. They also brought foccacia to the table with oil and vinegar to start.
This was by far the best meal we found during our stay, even better than the dinner we had at Farmstead in St.Helena (they also were happy to modify their food for vegans, but sadly much of the flavor was lost in the process).

Pros: Great food, Helpful staff, Good location
