“Great food - even better staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

It was like eating at home - took care of us by moving the patio heater on a cool evening. Great food and great wine for an even better price!

“Average Italian Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Both Yelp and Urban Spoon gave this location a decent rating, unfortunately our experience was just average - every item on the menu was swimming in tomato sauce.

“Tasty, homey Italian food but portions are too big...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

The food is good, tasty, homey Italian-American fare at a decent price and served in a warm friendly restaurant.

But beware of the portion sizes. They are ENORMOUS. And the staff seem to take pleasure in it.

I fancied a pasta starter and when it came it was the size of a large main course. I ate half.

I then had a calzone pizza which was the size of a breeze block. I ate half.

My girlfriend had pasta and, if conceivable, it was even bigger than my starter amount. She ate a third.

And we were stuffed.

So we essentially had enough food for five.

So consider sharing because the waste (when you're a tourist doggy-bagging isn't really an option) is pretty depressing.

Lovely food, though.

“Homey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Not a fancy, Napa gourmet restaurant, so food snobs stop reading now. Just really good Italian food, good bargains and a friendly, family run kind of atmosphere. If you are really hungry, order the "Feast" for two. Salad, lasagna, spaghetti and cheese pizza for $20. Not as noisy as some other popular spots in Napa

“not bad, not good either”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Pizza is just OK, a bit too thick and too much cheese for my Italian palate, but I understand in the US pizza is like that. Price is OK. Decor is passable, with a few stereotyped Italian apparels...
