    Ask for Jaye (a female). SHe was the best server I have ever had at a restaurant. Didn't push anything, made recommendations, advised against if she felt it was too much or wouldn't work with what we had already eaten. Made a good experience, great!

    Got seated next to a wall where it feels like a freeway zone. Everybody is walking by, got elbowed by one of the buss boy three times and never once he apologized. Address the seating arrangement with the manager on duty that evening, he states they have received numerous complaints about that table from other patrons, but to this day they still have people sit in this area. When asked why they still sit people in that area if they received numerous complaints. His respond was people need the table. If you're looking for a great food and excellent service, this is not the restaurant to be. I will not go back and I'll definitely tell everyone I know, anyone going to Napa not to go to this restaurant. Better off going to Bottega.

    The menu was not so large that you couldn't make up your mind, and short enough to noticeably see that every item on the menu was going to be fantastic. And it was! Recommend thr fresh pulled mozzarella and fresh tomatoes, and if offered try the Rissoto with leg of duck. Paired with the right wine like Vineyard 29 Cru cab, and dinner is a winner!

    We had a loquacious waiter which did not bother me, but could pose a problem to others at a table who would rather talk to their friends than to their waiter. The food is always very good: warm, house-made mozzarella cheese on grilled slices of bread with olive oil drizzled on top, delicious kale salads with farro and cranberries, a squid ink pasta entree with various introductions of fresh tuna, raw and cooked.

    Food was okay, i'd say even good, but the staff was in a rush to hustle people in, serve them and get them out, not what you expect for a small restaurant on vacation. It was not a friendly Italian place where you go and eat and spend a couple hours talking, but more a place where you are a number, get in and get out so that table can rotate. I've never felt the intense pressure to hurry as I did. Our starters came before or drinks, and the check came seconds after we declined the dessert menu.

    This restaurant was very classy...we brought in a bottle of wine, which they put on ice immediately and no corkage fee! We had a reservation for 7:15 but decided we wanted to eat earlier....so we showed up at 5:30 and they took us with a smile and no hassle. I had the duck and risotto and it was out of this world! I was afraid it might be greasy but the duck was crispy and the risotto was creamy....my compliments to the chef!

    Free corkage on your first bottle - a real plus after buying bottles while wine tasting during the day. We had four different pasta dishes, and they were all delicious. The one with three types of tuna was the real star.

    We wen to Tra Vigne expecting a great meal at a classc Napa restaurant. They have an appealing outdoor area. Unfortunately, that evening, the management made a very poor decision and allowed a birthday party with a public address system to take half of the outdoor area. We were treated to 90 minutes of drivel and narcissism over the PA. Obviously, the owner is not overseeing the restaurant, as it was about the worst dinner I have ever had. The current managers showed no consideration or respect for those of us who had to sit out there. It now firmly rests as one of the Napa restaurants that "used to be". That is too bad,

    We visited the restaurant, approximately 2 years ago and our experience was amazing. Perhaps our expectations were too high this time. Service seemed average at best, however the food was very good. The restaurant has a free corkage fee for the first bottle which is generous and much appreciated, particularly when you make a great find in Napa or Sonoma. I would definitely look forward to going back again and recommend this restaurant.

    The food is excellent here! The short ribs were to die for! And you can get half portions if the pasta dishes. The pasta is homemade and unique! The mozzarella appetizer and the fig pizza were excellent! Can't say enough! Didn't have room for dessert. And the wine list was awesome! But apparently you can bring your own with a corkage fee.

    Many years we have been to Napa Valley and stayed in the northern portion of the Valley and somehow never dined at Tra Vigne until this trip. We couldn't believe what we have been missing! The food, service and ambiance made for an extremely enjoyable evening. The warm, fresh mozzarella, the fresh-made pasta and the braise short ribs were absolutely delicious! We are palming to return next year!!!

    Tra Vigne is not a restaurant that you can visit each weekend. it's a bit pricey, but for those occasions when you really want a great meal, with great wine, this is a Napa gem. The wine list is extensive and the sommelier did a nice job of recommending wines based on our tastes, budget, and the diversity of the group. Because we had a very large group we had to eat inside, but the outside is a beautiful setting that I prefer over the inside.

    The food was all very average tasting, nothing spectacular. The 'outdoor' patio area lacked character and the usual enjoyment of sitting outside because of plastic sheeting to enclose it, but that was better than the inside. I've had much better pasta and much better atmospheres. All in all it was a fair to average place to eat.

    They took great care of us and the food never disappoints! We wisely ordered the fresh, hand cut mozzarella and the Padrone peppers as appetizers. They were sensational! The home made pasta dishes were brilliant and the salads excellent. The server was very helpful with all of the dishes and wine recommendations. Tra Vigne has been a favorite of ours and is a wonderful place to dine with friends, either indoors or al fresco. The atmosphere is both romantic and relaxed and the food consistently outstanding.
