Italian Gem off of Hwy 29. A Locals favorite!

Very good american food and pizza. Good pasta. Very, very popular with the local Napa crowd, Great bar scene. Always busy. You need a reservation or sit at the bar. Nice outdoor seating too.

We had a good meal at bistro don giovanni. Yummy, fresh homemade pasta. Not the best we've had, but decent. We were, however in and out within 35 minutes including drinks, appetizer and entree. Great service, but almost too quick to really enjoy the atmosphere and experience.

Linguini with clams was exceptionally delicious. Cookies to share for dessert nice. Lovely view out the tall windows. Quiet enough for a pleasant conversation.

We generally go for lunch where they have a great carpaccio, Caesar salad and will split a pasta with the table. Service is terrific and prices are very reasonable

Don Giovanni continues to be our #1 Italian restaurant in the Napa area. From the service to the atmosphere to the food, this restaurant always delivers. My family recently spent a delightful Saturday afternoon enjoying delicious food and great wine. I love the beet salad and Margherita pizza. But, anything you order will be good. We had a wonderful corner... More

This restaurant not only has wonderful Italian food but a great selection of wines and a lovely ambiance. It is indeed a bistro as it is friendly and fun. The room is large but the tables are nicely separated and the people watching is part of the experience. I broke with tradition this time and had something other than the... More

We visited as a last minute choice without a reservation for our honeymoon. We were shocked at how delicious the meal was, the attentive staff, and well priced. They really made our honeymoon feel special.

Celebrated our anniversary weekend in Napa with two other couples and had a sumptuous dinner at Bistro Don Giovanni. Everything from the pizzas, gnocchi to the wild boar ragu was excellent.

We have visited this restaurant numerous times over the years whenever we have been in the Napa Valley. This time when we visited we were somewhat disappointed in the menu selection - it has always been much better in the past. However, what we ordered was outstanding and the service was very good as well. Be prepared to wait if... More
