We wanted to try this while in the area because of its ratings.. Food was freshly prepared but very rich ... We plan to try it again on our return because I would like to try other foods on the menu... All in all, a good experience ..

We had a great meal at this lovely restaurant. Authentic Italian cuisine. Food was great with locally sourced food. I started with a salad of greens. My next course as a locally raised pork chop that was cooked to perfection. The rest of the table has salmon that was also great. We enjoyed the extensive wine list, a plus in... More

This place was a surprise from a very good person who wanted to show us a nice lunch in Napa. I was blown away as I'm a Chef. The filet of beef and potatoes. Everything was first class. What a sight to see in a beautiful place to visit.

Excellent service, exquisite Italian food prepared in the premises. The best Italian food in town and probably in the State. The Gnocchi and the dessert the "nona" are outstanding.

The service could not have been better. The owners have a lot of experience with wine and it shows with the various wines that are offered. The menu reflects the owner's Italian heritage which offered items that we were not familiar with. The server was very helpful in explaining the menu which was a big help. The food was very... More

My wife and I had a late night glass of red wine and chocolate cake with caramel syrup and nuts, which was very good. The dinner menu looked like it was worth a visit---next time. Alex and his wife were delightful.

The owners are from Italy, accommodated a large group of us and even gave us wine to drink around the fountain outside. Glasses, opener, and smiles. This place was a great find.

The food and the service were excellent. This was one of the best Bolognese sauces I have ever eaten --- outside of Italy. Loved that it was Mom and Pop. Both came to the table to talk to us. Wish it were closer to home.

We stayed next door at Rancho Caymus and ended up here each night for cheese and another fabulous bootle of wine. Alex has one of the most extensive wine lists in Napa and is priced reasonably well. From the looks of the food around us, it would appear that their menu is solid too. We loved this place and the... More
