Chef's creations from antipasti to pastas, entrees and desserts pay passionate homage to traditional Italian cookery.

    We were seated in a nice table for 2 out on the the patio. The waitress was not very attentive. We ordered the mozzarella bruschetta and calamari appetizers. Mozzarella was ok but the calamari tasted like they got it in the frozen food aisle at the supermarket. I had the Mussels for my entree and they were good but the pork short ribs my husband had were not. Won't be back.

    The food was good. We shared the mozzarella bruschetta, fig pizza and the carbonara pasta. Service needs improvements. Staff overall not very friendly as other restaurants. A little stuck up. Would have given five star but our waiter was a bit sarcastic when answering our questions. Kinda impatient when taking our order. Also asked to sit outside and saw there was a lot of tables open but said we had to wait 30 mins. Not very accommodating.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    Unfortunately due to heavy traffic in Napa, our party was 30 minutes late for our reservation. We were a party of 8. The first of our party to arrive was treated rudely. Although the restaurant was by no means full, the greeter refused to seat us outside in the courtyard. Instead, we were seated in a remote corner inside and away from any other diners. The food, however, met our expectations, although I doubt that any of us will ever return because of the way we were treated.

    This was our fifth meal at Tra Vigne and it was fabulous - as always. The waiter was great and the food was magnificent. Do try the arancini as a starter. They melt in your mouth and the sugo di tomate was sensational! The secret is (apparently) a tiny amount of Calabrian peppers. I can't wait to go back!

    TV has been one of our favorite restaurants for many years. Everyone we have ever taken there loves it - including my 80 year old parents from Texas. Dining at the bar, indoors or outdoors are all wonderful. The decor and ambiance are luscious, elegant, romantic, evocative, appetite-enhancing. Five-star service. Your wine list is superb - even your house wines are excellent. Thank you for another memorable dining experience.

    I have dined at Tra Vigne since I was a kid and have never had anything less then amazing! They have some staple dishes that have been on the menu since the 80's, such as their Mozzarella and Rabbit Ragu Parpadelle, so delicious!! There is a reason their clientele is anywhere from restaurant owners, wine makers to locals and tourists. Highly highly recommended when you are in the St. Helena area.

    Tra Vigne is all about food and the right wine to go with it. The preparation and presentation is perfect and the waitstaff performs as the professionals they are. Perfect choice to experience Napa Valley in style. We dined here in 2008 and were delighted that it was still as wonderful a dining experience now as it was then. We started with the magnificent mozzarella bruschetta prepared fresh with the warmed cheese cut and spread for us at the table. One of us had the whole fish - filleted at the table - and the other the halibut. Both were delicious!

    Dinner on Saturday 8/30/14 at the Restaurant. I was so excited to try this restaurant since it's been on my wish list for so long. I'm a foodie, but I was disappointed with the 2 main courses. I loved the mozzarella al minuto (bruschetta with fresh mozzarella) with heirloom tomatoes for appetizer and I also liked the espresso gelato. The smoked and braised beef short ribs was a little dry (or maybe the meat was a little too lean) and the sauce was on the salty side. The sage infused pappardelle with braised rabbit was flavorful but also salty. Both main dishes had good flavors but I was thirsty from the salt.

    The homemade pastas are fantastic. I had the herb infused pasta with lamb not sure what to expect. The pasta was delicious and the lamb was plentiful and very tender. The mozzarella was made fresh. The wine list was extensive through all price ranges. I loved the enclosed outdoor patio. Dining under the lit trees you forget that the road was just on the other side of the wall. A great dining experience.
