Tra Vigne Restaurant, nestled in the heart of Napa Valley's historic St. Helena, delivers a captivating blend of old world Italy and the fresh, local ingredients of wine country. The vine covered building has tall, grand ceilings. Adjacent is the mesmerizing Tuscan Courtyard, and a canopy of trees with festive white lights offers diners "al fresco" dining in a restaurant that celebrates its 25th year in the Napa Valley.

The menu at Tra Vigne represents the marriage of two of the world's most renowned culinary regions: Tuscany - defined by hearty pastas, meats, cheese and olive oil and Napa Valley - a destination that celebrates fresh, local ingredients with a focus on artisanal preparation designed to highlight its acclaimed wines.

What a charming place! They offer indoor and courtyard seating. I have dined indoors and out. Beautiful wine selection. The freshly made warm mozzarella is to die for! I have not had a bad meal at Tra Vigne. I highly recommend it.

Having lived in St.Helena the past 9 years,Travigne was one of my "go to" favorite Resturants. What a shame it's now closed. I can only hope they don't tear down the beautiful building.

We dined there on opening day 28 years ago and dined there the last night, Dec. 20, as souvenir-seekers tore the TRA VIGNE letters off the wall. A favorite of locals and visitors alike, it reportedly will be torn down to be replaced by a restaurant featuring Meadowood chef Kris Kostow. Tra Vigne will be missed.

Wow. What an incredible atmosphere, meal, and dining experience. Devastated it will have the last seating on December 20th. If you can get a reservation before then, I highly recommend you go. The carbonara was exquisite. Fiancé had the rabbit ragu and was equally delicious. Really disappointed it will be closing, and hope all of the employees find jobs quickly... More

We just had to dine here one more time before they close their doors. We went for lunch and sat on the patio, overlooking the lovely interior courtyard. Our meal included a superb chicken salad, exceptional oven roasted brussels sprouts, wonderful butternut squash ravioli, and delicious fritto misto, followed by scrumptious tiramisu and butterscotch panna cotta, and a couple of...

This restaurant is one of our favorites in Napa Valley. We have dined here countless times over the past 20 years and have always had a wonderful experience. The food, service, and ambiance has always been top notch. We'll especially miss the "Mozzarella Al Minuto". It has to be one of the best appetizers ever created!
