Thank You Server Neil for making our evening with you a very enjoyable one. My wife and daughter had the Bronzino. They said it was wonderful. I had the pasta rigatoni alla carbonara. It was wonderful. Great settling. Average wine prices. All made for a memorable evening.

There are much better restaurants around the Napa area. The cheese app was the best thing we had. My pasta dishes were not good, but my friend's pork chop was great. The one tuna pasta was beyond strong fishy. Our waitress was a delight, but I will not go back here. The best thing besides the cosmetics was they allow... More

Had a wonderful lunch with family. Service was great and the food was very tasty. Was tempted to get an order to go also. The carbonara was one of our favorites!!

i thought I had reserved a smaller intimate restaurant. Far from reality, this place was zoo on our arrival. I guess we entered the wrong door as it took much questioning of staff to find a hostess. Multiple group parties going on and =everyone was having a good time. Although not what we were expecting the food was very good... More

We were there with a party of 8, first night in Napa, its been several years since I had been there and thought we would try it again. We got a beautiful evening (most in Napa are) dined outside on the patio. This place, like most in Napa, is corkage friendly. We brought some wines we wanted to try, they... More

Cannot do better in NAPA; ambiance inside and out is unmatched in every way. The rich and famous of NAPA dine here. Per the locals these are the best items, and we agree after trying them: house made mozzarella and heirloom tomato appetizer, the short ribs entree and the panacotte for dessert. Just book it.

As I usually do when we arrive in a new city, I connect to Trip Advisor to find the most recommended restaurants by their customer database. In St.Helena it is Tra Vigne but TP's website says that there are no availabilities for us. So I phone the restaurant directly and ask if we could have two places immediately. YES they... More

Great service, fantastic food. Wonderful ambience. I had the mozarella which was sooo fresh, even the cesar salad was amazing. This place is busy, but I didn't feel crowded or rushed. We sat in the courtyard which was delightful. The price point was very reasonable, we all had no complaints about our food.

My third visit to this outstanding restaurant and still loving it. Consistent high standard has been maintained over all the intervening years. The service is fantastic and the servers knowledgable. Looking forward to the next visit already.

Our party of 6 enjoyed dining outdoors in their romantic patio. It was lit with tiny lights throughout under large trees. Their indoor dining was too loud for my taste, but I always prefer outdoor dining when possible. Their Italian food was yummy--especially their VERY fresh home-made mozzarella and tomato bruschetta appetizer assembled at your table.
