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

Delicious fish course. Good service even if the place was studded. A bit far from Napa center, so we had to take a taxi. Very popular restaurant, som better book in advance.

After a long morning/early afternoon of wine tasting, me & my girlfriends were in need of some serious food. We asked our driver for a recommendation of a good Italian restaurant & boy did he deliver! The ravioli with marinara, gnocchitti with pesto, margherita pizza, Caesar salad & sautéed spinach were all OUTSTANDING! Not to mention, extremely reasonable prices. There... More

The location is right off the highway north of Napa and is in a vineyard. The food was great and the service was good. Try the fried olives which are not on the menu but are great!

One of the best restaurants in the Napa Valley. Delicious food, great drinks and fun atmosphere. We had pizza and caprese, risotto and pasta. Not one dish found a complaint in our party of 5. Some fantastic specialty drinks as well. A fun sitting area with a fountain could give you a place to wait for your seat or relax... More

Beautiful setting - you really get that "I'm in Napa" feel when you sit on the patio with the heat lamps. All the dishes we had were delicious. Even the table bread was rave-worthy.

We love this place for many reasons. The setting is magnificent, just at the edge of a vineyard with views of the eastern mountains beyond. The outdoor patio is beautiful and covered enough that you have no direct sun but are still outside. The service is exceptional. The food is delicious - our wives loved the peach salad (with added...

We love dining here. The staff is friendly and the food is great. The raviolis are wonderful. All the food is fresh. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. Great for lunch or dinner. Outside dining is beautiful.
