We ate supper with friends at Don Giovanni's. We were seated immediately (and we had no reservations), and a waiter came by immediately to get drink orders. He was very knowledgeable about the menu, and answered a number of questions to help guide us to the right entree. The food was freshly prepared and was out to us in just... More

We stopped here for dinner after a day in Napa. The food and service was really good and they had a nice list of reasonably priced wines. We were here on a Monday and it was still fairly busy so I recommend reservations.

This restaurant has changed a great deal since I last ate there 17 years ago. But, it was will great and obviously a top choice for locals. Steak frites and house made pastas were fantastic!

We went with some friends who love this place. Very nice outdoor deck overlooking a garden fountain and vineyards all around. Wonderful Italian dishes. The mushroom and asparagus risotto was very tasty and the salads with their arrays of ripe fresh fruits were very refreshing. My wife and I shared a fresh fig pizza which was delicious. The Peju Chardonnay... More

Service prompt and professional but friendly, awesome crafted cocktails. We sat outside and enjoyed the courtyard view which seemed much more relaxed than inside which was very busy. Food was delicious with excellent presentation. We'll definitely be back to try some of their other dishes.

The food and service was very good, the price on the expensive side, but that is ALL of Napa. Tables are very close together and there is a VERY high noise volume which is something I hate when trying to enjoy a nice dinner. Also, little to no air conditioning during July and it was HOT.

We travel to Napa every year and have tried all of the top TA rated restaurants. This year we added Bistro Don Giovanni to our list and weren't as 'wowed' as other reviewers. The restaurant is pretty and the service is good. We struggled a bit with the menu but I decided on grilled chicken and my husband had spaghetti.... More

Bistro Don Giovanni is a wonderful stop on the way to the rest of the Napa Valley wine country. In fact, it would a get place for lunch or dinner anywhere. Set in the vineyards, lots of outdoor seating, comfortable indoor space, welcoming and knowledgeable staff and excellent food. It doesn't get much better even if you head further north... More

We both ate fish, and they made me a special sauce because of my dietary restrictions. The waiter was extra friendly and helpful. The menu had lots of choices. My husband thought the tiramisu for dessert was the best he had ever tasted.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Napa, bar none. We drive regularly from San Francisco to Napa just to eat here even though there are lots of good Italian restaurants in San Francisco. The difference is that not only is the food delicious and authentic, we love the wine country setting and ambiance, the trees, the vines surrounding... More
