LOVE IT!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFavorite Napa Valley ItalianThis is now our favorite Italian restaurant in Napa Valley. It has the finest food, a very good wine list, the nicest setting, by far, and is quiet and comfortable, with outdoor dining available.
This is my fourth visit to Alex and each time the food has been great, the service very good and the owner, Alex, has come to our table to talk with us to make sure everything was to our satisfaction.
Some of our favorites include Piadina con prosciutto Sand Daniele e gorgonzola, Sformatino di ricotta e pecorino con vellutata di asparagi, Minestra di farro e cavoli (fantastic), Cavatelli al ragu anticom, Lasagnette Con Pesto (which is different than what one might expect as a lasagna but very good), Mezzelune Gamberi (half moon ravioli fill4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit toThis was our first visit to Alex and we were not disappointed. We arrived early and was seated promptly. The food was very good. Portions are a little small. However, we had no complaints. Excellent service, friendly atmosphere.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, poor price-valueOur overall rating is lower than expected by the individual ratings. For us the menu was just so-so. Most items had a twist that we did not like (personal issue) and had a tough time picking something. Also the price value for what was received was poor. I had the halibut special. For $28 I expected more than just a small piece of halibut (no vegetable or potato sides). While it was very good, I was very hungry after eating. The dessert (Tiramasu) was good but extremely small (Barely a table spoon full). AT $9 I expected more. Atmosphere was good, the food was good, but price value was very poor. Obviously cater to tourists who expect to pay more than the meal is worth.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFour of us ate here for dinnerFour of us ate here for dinner on March 13 2013. All the dishes we enjoyed and we said we would order again! That's always a good indication to the food. Very romantic inside. Sat near fireplace. Table service, there's room for improvement.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful Alfresco Dining in NapaWe loved this little place so much we came back two days in a row! Alfresco lunch in their patio is lovely if the weather permits. We discovered it on our last trip to Napa Valley, thanks to the folks at Caymus Vineyards and it's now our favorite restaurant in Napa Valley! Although it's Italian, they do EVERYTHING right, especially their Fish of the Day, which was Fluke when we dined. The only other place I've had fish so fresh was at Mama's Fish House in Maui. Our waiter, Jacob was a delight. In fact, it's hard to fine fault with anything at all. The highlights of our meal besides the Pan Roasted Fluke were the Grilled Octopus, Beef Croquette, Braised Pork Cheeks, and an authentic Tiramisu. They are still undiscovered but not for long!3/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
