The pasta was amazing. The fig and pear appetizer very good. Service was good but not great. Waiter was not overly attentive but was quite charming. Beautiful setting.

I've been to this place multiple times and the food has been excellent every time. The ingredients seemed much fresher than what you find at most restaurants. The wine list was pretty extensive. Service has been fair but never over the top. Its not as stuffy as some of the places up the round in Yountville, which gives it a... More

Wait staff and host/hostess were not especially friendly. It's very loud inside the restaurant, but the outdoor seating area is more quiet and very beautiful. Food was good, nothing exceptional.

Went on a Wednesday evening after wine tasting. The food was very good (rigatoni easily shared by two) , waiter good to very good. But $20 corkage fee seems excessive.

We enjoyed a nice evening dining on the patio. While the service could have been a bit better, the food was outstanding. We started with a Butternut Squash filled ravioli with a brown butter sauce. This was a great app to share and my wife and I agreed we could have eaten this all night long. A great start to... More

Spent week in Napa/Sonoma... First meal of trip here.....best meal of the week.....superior to all including more expensive restaurants such as Italian restaurant in Yountville. Reasonable wine selections as well although we normally bring wine and pay corkage fee... Will have more than one meal here during next wine buying trip...

Very nice dinner. We had salad and the primi pasta (didn't have an additional entrée), dessert and cappuccino. Food and service were good.

The food was excellent. We had the bruschetta which was very nice. The choice on the menu would cover most tastes and the service was attentive and the atmosphere was lovely.

We were in Napa for a long weekend of wine tasting with friends. We needed a good "base" for starting our tasting. They brought focaccia bread to the tablets start. We quickly polished it off. Very good and they readily brought us more. Some pizzas were ordered and pasta entres. All liked what they ordered. I like burgers so ordered... More

Our friends who own a winery in Napa suggested this restaurant. As an appetizer we picked the fried olives with Marconi almonds, they were out of this world, I could have just had them as a whole meal! . Cesar salad had a unique taste my husband and I split the salad and it was more than enough. We both... More
