The freshly made pork sandwiches are terrific. The prices are reasonable ($11 for a generous sandwich), the service is friendly and fun, and the picnic tables outside are a perfect place to finish your delicious well made sandwich. The butcher shop inside is pricey, but the quality of the meat is high and the staff behind the counter will help... More

I come here as often as I can. Their meats and home made sausages are equal to the best French boulangerie. You can't go wrong with any of the pates or cheeses for a cocktail party or picnic at a winery. You can now have them make a delicious sandwich to take out. Everything is made by the owner and...

They have amazing meat products like salami and pate. I always stop by here for some tastes for my dinner parties. I have also ordered meat products and they have come through every time. Highly recommend!

Fatted Calf has been serving up incredibly fine foods for years, hidden just off the Oxbow. Outdoor tables, located right next to the ABC bakery, close to the Napa River Walk. Ideal for meeting friends and getting that essential foodie gift for dinner. Expertly butchered duck, pork, smoked and prepared meats.

My friend and I have been in the Fatted Calf twice over the past few weeks and enjoyed both of ou experiences. On our first trip we got their porchetta sandwiches, which were very tasty. The second time we picked up 2 kinds of rillettes - duck and pork, some pate and some assorted charcuterie. We brought these with a... More

If you're looking for knowledge, authentic, high quality - this is the place. I do spend a lot of money here as it isn't cheap, but you also get what you pay for. If you're going to eat like this - do it right! The little dried sausage (4x$10) is almost a given each checkout. Love the Confit and pre-marinated... More

Exceptional service and fantastic selection of specialty pork and duck products especially. Sandwiches are excellent as are the few hot items readily available. We left with bags of goodies!

I wish this butcher was in my town, oddly, they do not sell beef steak but the pork, lamb, duck and chicken are amazing, along with all of the smoked meats they have! Friendly people and very high quality food!

Are you kidding me??? If you give this place less than 6 Stars you're either crazy or you have a mad genius butcher living in your basement. The Lonza (pictured) is to die for and that alone is enough of a reason to get a 1/4lb and sit quietly in your car all alone. The mortadella is tasty and the... More

Seemed to be a little expensive but the shop was original, cute and offered lots of cheeses, wines, and of course meats
