Great food and service. casual with upscale feel. packed early and late. every item on the menu we tried (3 entrees, one soup, one salad and dessert) was to die for.

A friend surprised me with a birthday dinner here this year. I love the atmosphere. The food is simply marvelous. It was an occasion to remember. I recommend bringing a person here to celebrate a special event, i.e. a proposal, wedding anniversary.

Dropped by on 9/28 for lunch with no reservations. The new maître d was welcoming and gracious, continuing the high standards set by the owners. He encouraged us to wait for the outside table we wanted and personally did the set up. Checked in to make sure we had a good experience. Kudos to the owner for selecting a perfect... More

Our family has celebrated various important family occasions at Don Giovanni's. The restaurant has a very nice outside seating area, plus beautiful grounds to sit and relax while waiting. There is also the opportunity to speak Italian with Don Giovanni himself and some of the waiters, who are natives of Italy. The service is good and the food is excellent.

Decent Italian food that doesn't disappoint and is moderately priced for Napa - there are usually options for everyone. Good for big groups.

Classic Italian food with a napa influence. This was an excellent meal from start to finish. The meatballs in the red sauce were some of the tastiest eaten outside of Italy!

While we have been to Napa many times, this was our first trip to Bistro Don Giovanni. The restaurant was highly recommended by the owner of our B&B (high praise indeed). The restaurant gave us a warm welcome and our waitress seemed very interested in making the meal exactly what we wanted the experience to be. The food was delicious... More

The best restaurant in a long time. Just like Italy... The filet migon appetizer was over the top. The salad with nothing but lettuce had so many different favors in it you just loved it. The pasta dishes are incredible. I tried two. The dessert Tiamasu was just like in Italy. Over all it was the best food ever. I... More

My husband and I had dinner here on a Friday night and we were not disappointed. The food was very good. We had the shrimp risotto and the whole roasted fish. Both were delicious and the portions are plenty. We shared the Bastini trifle. It was huge and so good. A shout out goes to our waiter Michele, he was... More

Had dinner at Bistro Don Giovani. We had the fabulous bolognese and it was great. The fig appetizer was awesome along with the warm chewy bread. We ended with the house gelato and the fruit crisp,it was sooo good! The service was very attentive and friendly. I think we are going back for the fig pizza at lunch!
