Good food and wine

We visited our first night in Napa since Oenotri was one of the few places open past 8pm. The wine list (on an iPad) was fairly extensive and featured a number of excellent, affordable Italian wines in addition to the overpriced California ones. Needless to say, we chose a Montefalco that... read more

I liked the vibe because it felt really comfortable, the service was good, and the food tasted really fresh. We had a lovely salad and the pasta dishes I sampled were some of the best ever!

Not the prettiest place and the tables are way took wide (you feel like you're sitting across the room from your dinner companions), but the food was truly excellent. Both pastas, salads and pizzas were fresh, perfectly seasoned and flavored. Service was a bit lackluster and it's a pretty loud place, but the food is the true standout here.

One of our all time favorite restaurants in the Napa Valley. You should not miss this place if in downtown Napa. Food and wait staff is always 1st Class. Try their pizza...never had anything that was less than spectacular for dinner here.

Great food, great wine list (of course!) and a big, open space. You feel like this is where the locals go, and in fact, we went with local friends who eat there all the time. To me, that's the best recommendation: they live there and go often.

The service was very fast and the food was decent but nothing exceptional. Overall I'd go back but it wouldn't be at the top of my list. There are many other places I'd be willing to try first.

Love the food. Love it. You will not miss the mark here. Pizzas are great and the pasta is phenomenal. Wine- a hard, italian list to navigate. I'm in wine country and would have preferred to see more US options. Experience- This is where I took this from a 4 to a 3. We waited for a solid 45 minutes... More

Oenotri was recommended by our hotel as the restaurant to try in downtown Napa. PROS: pleasant staff, quick and accommodating service, food has nice flavors. CONS: Small portions, very overpriced. Honestly had meals as good in a pizzeria back home for half the price. Sorry Oenotri.

I'm so disappointed with Oenotri. I guess I was expecting more from them. I was expecting good service from the wait staff, that was a big fail. The waiter was condescending and a know it all. The food was avg. but the espresso martini was a winner. Also the cured meats was a winner but can't say much for the... More
