I don't know whether you would list this place. It is a take-away (but very useful when we wanted to save cash on holiday and eat in our hotel). The people there could not be more helpful. They re-opened just to serve us, so we wanted to return the favour and get them better known. Delightful Italian owner who has been there since 1961.

Amazing Italian food!

This is a family favorite. We love the raviolis and Malfati's and the minestrone soup. You can even bring your own dish. Yum!

We would never have heard of this place if we didn't stay with some Napa locals. Initially we wanted to go out with a bang for our last night in CA, and were looking at options in Yountville. But we looked too late - everything in Yountville was booked! Fortunately for us, we decided to try something in Napa, and... More

Best darn food in Napa in my opinion! Tiny place, but alot of heart and soul went into the food. We tried the Mulfatti and wanted to go back for more, but it was closed. It's tucked away in a liquor store but we grabbed our food and sat outside a local winery. It was like no other italian food... More

Don't be turned off by the hole-in-the-wall setting. Clemente has brought the true spirit and flavor of the food he cooked at The Depot along with him. Nothing has changed. So if you want true Napa inspired "Ravs and Malfs" grab a pot and lid and head over to his new digs. You won't be disappointed.

Our family has been coming to this place since it was located at the Depot Hotel. We were so sad when he couldn't make it for a couple years. It certainly is delicious food for the right price. Perfect to order for parties!

How great is this! After a long and tedious day of wine tasting, we knew we had to try the Italian family dinner from Clemente's. We were told about this establishment by the concierge at our resort (Riverpointe Wine Cottages). We tried visiting on a Monday to bring food back to our cottage, but it is closed. We made sure...

No where else in the world can one get malfatti and the other marvelous Italian dishes served up by Clemente & family. This is not a sit-down restaurant any longer but rather a "take-out" window located inside Val's liquor store, a long time Napa establishment. Either take your own pots to fill up or have Clemente's provide covered containers. Either... More

This is the best place and the only place to get Malfattis! Be sure to bring you pan if you live in the area. Otherwise they do have take out containers, but they cost extra. The chef has been around for years and I hope he stays around for many more years. I was very disappointed when the Depot was... More

I read about this little place located inside a liquor store and had to see it for myself. I'm so glad I did! My husband and I stopped in one afternoon for lunch. Per the recommendation of the owner (who is the cutest little Italian man I've ever met), we ordered half ravioli and half malfatti with a baguette to... More

I kept an open mind and decide to try Clemente's At Val's. Ordered a few things and rated it average. Everything was a little too salty for me so I ate a lot of bread to counterbalance the sodium in the sauce. My husband was okay with the heavy seasoning so I did factor that in the rating. The lady... More
