“Good Food-good service”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Good Italian food, reasonably priced (for Napa). The service was very good as well. Be sure to make reservations--this is a very popular family restaurant

“Excellent service, very good food”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

The food was very good and the service and decor were great as well. Don't be fooled by the exterior of the building, this place is very good!

“Consistently Excellent”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Everyone asks in Napa where you plan to eat in the evening, and when you say "Bistro Don Giovanni", they always smile and say "great choice". I gather the menu does not change often, but there is a loyal set of regulars. The haricot vert/beet salad, pizzas, and duck ragu pasta entree are all exceptional and would be worth going back for again and again. Very good service and a nice location/view.

“Must stop place due to rep”
Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

Lunch breaking during a day full of winery tours with a group of 5 couples. Good value, portions & service. Wife had burger which was good & greasy while I had a salad which was more than enough. Others at table had pasta, fish, ravioli, etc. All served efficiently. Only complaint was lack of refills on soft drinks & water. Must stop eatery if in the area tho.

“Jewel of the Napa!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

If you find yourselfs in Napa looking for a restaurant that gives you the flavor of the vines and delivers on all levels, look no farther then Bistro Don Giovanni. Exquisite is what eminates from our lips over the salad, the pasta and finally the desert caramel truffel packed into a parfait flute. Service and ambiance are paramount to a great experience and their team delivers. One thing I did notice is no one that night came dressed up. Either the Napa is very casual or they just feel relaxed enough to dress down. To me this is a jewel and warrants a romantic eve out with your gal so dress up folks! Tip: Sit on the outdoor patio during dinner and for lunch I would choose near the "garlic" fountain.
