This is a go to on every trip to Napa Valley for me. Excellent food, wine selections and service. Call ahead for a reservation or you can eat at the bar. Every time I am here I see world renowned winery owners, wine makers and Hollywood celebrities. A great restaurant that never disappoints!

Great Ambiance, Great Menu and of course a very extensive wine list! Service was not great, not terrible, just OK. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant for a couples night out. The patio is very romantic

On our recent trip to Napa and surrounding area we were urged to try Tra Vigne. We had lunch and I just wish we did it earlier in our visit because I would have eaten there for every meal they would allow us. The Mozzarella appetizer was out of this world outstanding and is enough for several to share and... More

Incredible food and service! Our waiter was great and gave us honest feedback about what to eat and which wines to pick.

We stopped in for a nice dinner after walking around St.Helena at the end of our day visiting three wineries. We tried an appetizer of what they describe as lasagna made with butternut squash instead of pasta. It was ok but would not suggest it to anyone. My husband ordered the pork chop while I had the butternut squash ravioli.... More

We've been coming here for years and it never disappoints. My husband & I drove down for dinner from our hotel in Calistoga. It was a cold night, but warm & welcoming in the restaurant. Our server was excellent as was the food. The house-made mozzarella was terrific - almost like burrata but a different texture. We then split the... More

Have eaten at Tra Vigne numerous times since it opened in the 80s. Always loved it. This time, my food was so salty I had to send it back and was comped the meal.

One of the best meals I have ever had out, period. Recommended by a friend, I'm glad we stopped. We shared several small plates, the best being the mozzarella. So simple yet so delicious. If you ordered nothing else, this would be it. The atmosphere is gorgeous, service is impeccable! We made reservations for 8pm on Sunday night, seated promptly... More

Best meal we had all week in the area. Italian food in very nice setting, excellently prepared and served. There was no corkage charge for our own wine, which was a pleasant surprise for a fine dining restaurant. The Mozzarella bruschetta appetiser was excellent as were the ravioli and rabbit ragu for main courses. Top it off with the butterscotch... More

After a wonderful mini-vacation in Napa, we stopped here for lunch on our way to the airport, because friends from Houston had "gushed" over the short ribs. They were right! In a multiple-step process, the ribs are baked and then braised in a reduction of everything that is good in Napa. The meat fell off the bone and the sauce... More
