I was there with a group of 40 people for dinner. The staff did a great job keeping everyone happy. The food was very good and the wine was spot on.

We had an amazing dinner here. Pesto Gnocchi was delicious. We stayed at the Senza hotel so we could walk over for dinner. Very convenient and good.

Upon hearing where we were dining one evening, everyone commented about the great food we would be eating. We were not disappointed! We enjoyed different entrees and all were nicely presented. Portions are huge, so if they allow sharing, that may be an option for light eaters. So much so that for two of us who ordered the Pollo all... More

My husband and I had eaten here years ago, probably soon after it opened, and wanted to see if it was as good as we remembered. It was! The atmosphere is lively; almost every table was filled at 6:30; and people were eating inside and out. There is much to enjoy in the decor, including the outside sculptures which are... More

We made a last minute reservation for 5, sat outside and we all enjoyed our meal, The Fritto Misto was excellent. Only problem was my wife had a fruit fly in her drink and the waitress took the drink away but never brought a replacement and charged us $ 10.00 for the drink.

This is one of our "go to's" when we have friends visiting Napa. In mild weather you can even eat outside and enjoy the delightful sculptures in the garden. Food and service are excellent. One of their long time waiters never fails to come over and greet us.

Love the ambiance...the table, I felt, should have been a little bigger for a party of 8. However, we made it work and all was well. We all had a variety of dishes off the menu. Three of us had ordered the same thing. Great flavor and presentation. Only downside was they ran out of meatballs:/. Italian restaurant right? Meatballs?:/.... More

This is a great spot for a great meal among friends. The location if you can sit outside is very good. Service superb. Variety of great Italian meal choices, good (not great) wines. Moderately expensive, but worth the experience. While the food is good I am unsure why some people describe this as superb. Those people might never have been... More
