Good fortune smiled on us during our recent trip to Napa Valley. Through a friend-of-a-friend connection, we heard of Fagiani's as we planned our activities. That same "Kevin Bacon" connection got us a reservation for a Friday evening meal that will long be remembered for the quality of the food and wine. Good company was also part of the great experience, to be sure, but I'll have many more meals with the same good company, but not that same level of food and service.
We started with a shared order of mussels and a sampling of the carrot and ginger soup. Both were excellent. Our entrees were well-presented and, like the baby bear's chair, just the right size. The risotto was delicious, although the lobster (an extra) was somewhat scant. The grilled salmon with the sea bean salad was "lick your plate" delicious, and the steak done to perfection. The wine was a bit pricey, but delicious accompaniment.
For dessert, the three of us shared two desserts -- fruit tart and warm cinnamon donuts. So much better than I make them sound! And then we received a complimentary Mason jar's fill of S'more pudding, complete with graham cracker crumbs and melted marshmallow. YUM! A perfect ending to our dining experience.
The staff had a professional, but friendly approach to their service. They were there when you needed them, but left you alone to enjoy the food with your dinner companions. If you're in the area, it's definitely worth a stop.
