The raviloli w/cream sauce rocks! We also had the spegehtti with lamb meat marinara. Yum! Nice friendly vibe & service. A little pricey for pasta. Busy place. Call for reservations. Worth going to if you are in the area.

Love this restaurant! Never have been disappointed in the food. I had butternut squash ravioli the last time I ate there, very rich. The salmon is a good choice too. They have gluten free pasta which was nice for my niece. Our sever wasn't my favorite, she didn't want us to have a relaxed dinner, she kept rushing us and... More

This is a great place and make sure you sit outside on the covered patio. It looks out over the valley! They have great food and service. Make sure to order the fried olives for an appetizer because they are great!

Very nice place. The food and service was excellent. The only thing we didn't like was the Hostess, when we left she was on her cell phone texting. She never acknowledge us. Not good.

My husband and I were very impressed with the quality of the food, the service and the ambience of this restaurant. We had a great experience. The ciabatta bread was good and plentiful so use restraint or you'll be too full when they bring your food!

I have only had lunch here, but more than a dozen times. ALWAYS great food. A little noisy, but that's Italian!!! Informed servers, good strong cocktails, and food is not to be missed. Recommend it highly.

It was my first time to visit the restaurant. Hubby loves the place and raves so much about it and never misses the place when he's in town. I couldn't agree 100%, however, the food was good. It's relatively cheap based on the servings and how fresh their ingredients. Definitely a place to try when in town. It gets so... More

I've always enjoyed the food, service and ambiance at Bistro Don G - for over 20 years! It is our go-to place and it never lets us down. Yes, they do give a little extra special service to us locals, but we deserve it! Be sure to have reservations and in the summer dine on the deck. For large groups... More

I really don't understand all the raves about this place. Everything was good...the service, food, atmosphere....but not great. The only feature that stands out for me is the acoustics. The restaurant was packed with people on a Sunday afternoon, but we could have a conversation without shouting. Other restaurants could leArn from this.

Great pasta dishes, plus attractive menu of other entrees. Good service, a restaurant that is a favorite of the locals. Good solid Italian at reasonable prices with very pleasant ambiance. I live here in the valley and have been eating there for over twenty years.

Thank louk723
