On one trip to Napa, we ate in Don Giovanni's four times. The food is really excellent and the menu specials change daily. Unique views, fantastic service and some menu items worth the trip from Arizona. Best pizza Margherita anywhere!

Packed on a Friday evening, we cozied up to the bar, ordered an octopus appetizer, and waited for our reserved table by the fireplace.. The service is professional and friendly, the restaurant beautifully designed, the outdoor areas appealing, especially the fountain area. We were a party of four and ordered frito misto (a bit doughy), beet salad (very good), salmon... More

Yes, it's a little pricey, but it is worth it for sure! Everything is sooooooo good, so it's makes it sooooooo hard to decide what to order every time.

I have eaten here before - in fact, it is one of my favorite restaurants in Napa - I love Don Giovanni - it is really a very comfortable restaurant - I have been here for lunch and dinner and always walk away feeling both happy with the food and service but also really content from the atmosphere. Many of... More

We have had the pleasure of eating at Don Giovanni's since it first opened and we are never disappointed. We most recently worked our way in on New Year's Eve day. We love the outdoor dining patio (the ocean view table overlooking the fountain is our favorite. During inclement weather if you are lucky enough to get the table by... More

Relaxing, welcoming, heartwarming! Food was excellent, service friendly and attentive, decor as you would expect of an italian bistro. Wine recommendations were spot on. Discovered a... More

Our lunch of pizza and duck confit was delicious on our most recent visit. Our server cheerfully offered a menu substitution. Service is excellent and the setting is lovely (outdoors or inside).

Always a favorite. We prefer to drop in and eat at the bar. Great wine selection. Fritto Misto and Ceasar salad are to die for. Full and noisey. Reservations generally recommended. Like many Napa Valley restaurants, Don Giovanni has their own garden for vegetables and herbs
