Its home in downtown Geyserville has a Wild West appeal, and the interior, festooned with statues of saints, boar tusks and stacks of cookbooks, has a playful yet smart vibe. Diavola is certainly one of the most popular spots for miles—within minutes of opening, it's always a full house.
The crowds are here for pizzas, like the signature combo of spicy meatballs, red peppers, provolone, pine nuts and raisins or the smoked pork belly, goat cheese and scallion, perhaps. Top-notch house ingredients include salumi, lardo and cured olives. But, that’s not to count out their pastas, including linguine tossed with baby octopus, bone marrow, zucchini and bottarga. Finish with their chocolate pistachio semifreddo paired with a Blue Bottle espresso.
Work in progress.
