First, we love the atmosphere - it is one of the best! Very authentic. We have been several times ordering different meals each time and have never been disappointed. The service is always very accommodating. It is always a must when we travel to Napa.

This has become our most favorite Italian Restaurant in Napa Valley. It has great food, and even better service. The setting for the dining room is beautiful, outside garden is elegant, the staff is very pleasant and friendly. We go to the restaurant with our daughter and her five-six year old daughter. She just gets out of the chair goes... More

The Bistro has been our gathering spot for friends from around the Bay Area. Always good & keeps us coming back. Fish stew very good this time. It is also one of the few NV resturants with a view. 🍷Cheers!

I love this place. I've been eating here since Giovanni and Donna opened their doors and it never fails to deliver on service, food, the decor and grounds. There are so many fantastic places to eat in the area and believe this, I have tried 99% of them. Bistro Don Giovanni is still the place I go to over and... More

Bistro Don Giovanni never fails to please. Beautiful location in a vineyard, easy parking, warm greeting at the door, attractive dining room and lovely outdoor terrace. Pleasant, accomodating service and very, very good food.. One of my favorites is the Petrale Sole when it's available and their chopped Italian salad is the finest I've ever had. Reasonable wine list. Interesting... More

This was a Valentine's treat set up by my husband while we were in Napa for a conference. He had made reservations the week before however when we got there they didn't have us for that night. A man checked out our problem and kindly made provisions for us. We were seated in a very nice table for 2 near... More

I was just there this January, but have been there in the past. It is off of Hwy 29 on the south side of Napa. Good food, good atmosphere, good service and a big wine list. Prices are within reason. Never been there on a weekend, but I suppose one would need reservations because it is busy during the week.
