I was here on business and we had a party of 16 that was split between a 10 top and 6 top. Staff was very friendly and the décor was very nice. Our table ordered a variety of dishes. I order the Lamb Shoulder pasta dish and was greatly disappointed. I order this dish because I love lamb, however, I... More

We landed here after long day of wine tasting and loved it. It's a beautiful place and the food was incredible. We had a cheese and charcuterie plate and the risotto which was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend it!

Our group went to Bistro Don Giovanni our first night in Napa and we were blown away!! The food was delicious, and the outdoor patio area was absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to go back!

Great authentic Italian fare - well done with a hip vibe. Lots of local vintners and winemakers meet here daily, so you'll likely see some of the in-the-know action. Plus, it's always a good sign when the local food/wine people frequent. Can't go wrong - reservations on weekends for sure.

This is a restaurant we enjoy on special occasions. It has a friendly atmosphere, beautiful surroundings and the food is consistently delicious. A bit pricey which is why we go on special occasions!

Mother's Day dinner. Greeted by a "snooty" hostess who didn't look at us or talk to us. It was busy, which was understandable, but... Server professional and helpful with a food allergy. Started with a pizza which was superb, then to ravioli and lasagna. Both very food. Finished with the delicious chocolate truffle cake. Overall, a very good meal at... More

We made reservations since it was Mother's day and arrived 10 minutes early. We were a bit put off by the attitude of the hostess. We both felt as if it were a bother for us to be standing there explaining we had a reservation under our last name. We were asked the time without much eye contact and since... More

The food and wine pairing was one of the best ever!! The ambiance was just OK-even though we had reservations we sat by the kitchen. The pesto pasta was pure palate delight!
