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!

On a very warm day, this the best place to welcome the weekend! The wait staff, the food and ambiance were great, especially sitting outside near their spectacular garden!

Found this restaurant thru TripAdvisor , & a good find it was. Very busy but didn't have to wait, food very fresh with good selection. Only advise the dessert plate of fresh fruit was one sliced peach with two slices of pear, certainly not worth the $8.00 !! Not sure this would be the best place to take children.

I live in Napa and love everything about this restaurant. My husband and I had our 17th anniversary last night and had the fig pizza which is to die for. We shared the Bastini Trifle for desert. I'm excited because it is almost my Birthday.

Wonderful atmosphere, attentive service, fantastic food! Great place for a group to enjoy a meal together. Meatballs were delicious, as was the ravioli with lemon sauce. Butterscotch pudding was the best we've ever had.

II have stopped many times over the years, since it's a very convenient lunch stop right off Hwy 29, though if you are driving too fast you will miss the driveway, since the sign is beyond it instead of before it as you are driving north. I have always thought it an average to very good place. On this visit... More

We were up in Napa for our monthly tour and wanted to try a new restaurant. We found recommendations for Bistro Don Giavanni and were not disappointed. The service was excellent, we loved the caprese salad and the pork chop. We will definitely be coming back here.
