Lively place well known by the locals. Although this restaurant is not in the heart of downtown Napa (just a couple of streets over from where many of the restaurants are) it is one of the best restaurants around for having a great Italian type meal and being entertained at the same time as they have music 5 evenings a...

I know this is California wine country and I was almost obliged to order something local, but then I saw they had Zenato Ripassa, which raised their status immediately. I was impresses, we must have ordered 20 bottles, and they kept them coming. The arancini were decent, calamari very good and then the linguine a la vongole was wonderful; simple... More

Enjoyed a special evening at Uva Trattoria last Saturday. Everything you want from a good trattoria. A busy, relaxed atmosphere with a live band playing in the background. Happy to say that the rain was pouring down outside (Napa Valley needs it!) however the restaurant was warm and welcoming inside with friendly service from our waiter Martin Lizama. Our small...

My husband and I got the recommendation for Uva from our hotel bartender. And we thank her for that! Uva was right up our ally from the moment we walked in, the place is decked out in old celebrity photos. We bellied up to the bar and had a fabulous time with one of the best bartenders I've ever had,... More

We were looking for a new place to eat in Napa, and stumbled onto this place off the beaten path. We were greeted by one of the owners, Rosa, a charming, gracious, attentive woman. We found a very comfortable, laid back atmosphere, with live music in the background. There is apparently live music every Wednesday through Sunday. It seems that... More

Our first visit to Uva was a very pleasant one. Our server, Alex was fantastic and made certain we were take care of. The food itself was very good. I expecially enjoyed the green olives stuffed with sweet sausage and then deep friend. Desert was excellent as well. Nice selection of wines and the dishes served are certain to appeal... More

I just got back from touring Italy and found some of the best potato pasta around. Me and my wife both felt we would never have our expectations met again. This place intrigued me with a Gorgonzola Gnocchi. Everyone in our group of 6 sampled and loved the pairing of fluffy pasta and creamy sauce. Come to think of it... More

Went out with a few friends for dinner. Nothing super formal but the place was perfect for a relaxing night out. Started with the beet salad and had veal as a main; both were delicious. I had a bite of the gnocchi as well that my friend ordered and it was also awesome i would probably order it next time.... More

We are Napa natives, have been going to Uvas off and I on for about the last fifteen years . We have experienced the new owners changes and have been lhapy for the most part. This last visit we were disappointed in the service, the food and the atmosphere. We took out of town family for a Suunday dinner. We... More
