We had the mozzarella with heirloom tomatoes, roasted peppers, and the fig and gorgonzola pizza to share at the table. All were excellent! For our entre most of us had the braised rabbit pappardelle. That was fantastic! I would definitely have that again. Our waiter was a little sarcastic which I think he meant as humor, but it is not... More

The best meal ever! We could have made a meal out of the mozzarella appetizer and a salad, but we could not resist the other menu items. Luckily, we stayed in town so we could walk off some of our delicious dinner! Enjoy!

We had a great meal with several courses, including home made cheese and a fig pizza. We had a great Sauvignon Blanc followed by an excellent Cab brought by our hostess. The carbonara was incredible, great flavour without being heavy. Our favorite Italian restaurant in town.

We sat outside, which was picturesque with beautiful trees and lights. Our food was wonderful: we had the salad with pears and walnuts, duck with risotto, and whole branzino roasted. Everything was delicious and perfectly flavored and prepared. Branzino is a favorite of mine and something I order frequently; this one was particularly delicious. The duck fell off the bone... More

My favorite dinner on our trip was at Tra Vigne. Don't miss the mozzarella appetizer. The Tuscan style steak was amazing. Three of us shared it - with some left over! If the weather is nice be sure to sit on the patio.

Went here last night with some old friends that are now locals here in Napa Valley. This place totally deserves all the great reviews. Every single bite was delicious. The bruschetta with Buratta and Heirloom tomatoes might be the best I have ever had. The Porterhouse steak for 2 was perfectly seasoned and came out sliced medium rare. The whole... More

many years ago I first went to Tre Vigne for lunch and fell in love with Michael Chiarelos food, this place is the hot spot for local wine makers and tourist. The last meal that I had there with my wife was for dinner, and I was blown away by the entire meal. First course was the Mozzarella Al Minuto,... More

I always make a point to patron Tra Vigne on any visit to Napa Valley - sit indoors or out, it's got great atmosphere. The food is excellent and you must try the fresh mozzarella. So far, I haven't found anything on the menu I wouldn't recommend. Enjoy!

I visited Tra Vigne on my first night in Napa Valley. It had come recommended to my family and I, so we made reservations about 3-4 weeks in advance, just in hopes of a table on their terrace. We were able to sit outside under the lights and trees and enjoyed a wonderful meal. I had their carbonara which was... More

When you simply have to have pasta this is the place to go. You can get 1/2 and 1/2 portions. So many choices of excellent food it is hard to choose. Arancini Alla Bolognese was incredibly delicious, made me wish it was not an appetizer. My wife had the Rigatoni Alla Carbonara which was delicious and filling. Sage Infused Pappardelle... More
