While we were up in the Napa area, my wife made reservations here for my Birthday. Very nice atmosphere, friendly service, and easy to find if you are not from the area. The food and attention to you were some of the Beast I have had in awhile. They really take pride in what they are doing. My Wife really... More

This is a well established, successful restaurant on the way to yountville. Even though you are greeted by Giovanni as you enter, you know immediately that you have entered a well oiled machine. Founded more than 20 years ago, this is a Napa landmark. I had a half bottle of Nozzole chianti reserva and risotto with short rib. The food... More

This Italian restaurant is easy to find on Route 29 about 3 miles north of Napa. Reservations are advised, particularly in the busy season. It is a large and busy with friendly Italian waiters. The service and food is very good but the menu was disappointingly small with mostly pasta dishes and no veal dishes.

Trust me when I say that this is NOT just a typical Italian restaurant. This is one of the best comfort Italian food I've had in a long time, and easily one of the top 5 restaurants in Napa Valley. More importantly, the prices are extremely reasonable. The service was absolutely outstanding!!!

This is where the locals go for consistently great food, friendly service and over the top people watching! Personally I have been going for over 20 years. We were all afraid when we lost dear Donna, but Gio has kept his mojo and it just keeps getting better!

Pasta was exceptional - could have eaten it all night. We also had carpaccio and risotto of the day which happened to have short ribs. Yum. This was an early Valentines dinner with our 8 year old. They were most accommodating to her and the sweet couple next to us couldn't stop talking with her. It was entertaining. Our server,... More

Liked the service and the atmosphere. The best dish at our table was the pesto pasta. I would have gone back to order that dish. The sole was ok but it was not as good as the sole at Celadon.

Thank minnms
