I have been to Tra Vigne many times and it never disappoints. White corn soup is off the hook! Lunch entree of flounder fish sandwich was delicious. Restaurant has spacious, comfortable feel (we ate indoors since we visited on such a hot day). Beautiful patio and deck, though, if the heat is not too bad. I will return to Tra Vigne.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMTra VigneOur dinner was amazing and James our server was incredible. My favorite restaurant experience in Napa so far.

Thank you,6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBest dining experience inBest dining experience in the Napa Region. The waitstaff and atmosphere were both superb!

Hadn't been there for years, but it was even better than I imagined!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMContinueA great and memorable restaurant experience. So glad it is there, so I can go on my birthday.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA Fine Dining ExperienceWe went as a group to have dinner after an afternoon of wine tasting in the Napa Wine region. A few of us had previously eaten at Tra Vigne and had good experiences. We were all very pleased with our dinners on this occasion. Everything was excellent from the freshly made mozzarella cheese to the freshly made pasta. The pasta was thin, perfectly cooked and so delicious that even though I was more than full, I could not stop eating the dish I had ordered. All in the group recommend this place highly. Go for it!!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AM20th Anniversary Getaway spot!Came from Florida to celebrate with my husband and chose Tra Vigne based on others' reviews, and it was a truly wonderful dinner! Food and service were outstanding! Only negative is that we had to sit on the patio and not in the main dining room, which was disappointing!!!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great experience!From the ambiance to the food and everything in between, our visit to Tra Vigne was a great unforgettable experience for our first visit. We will definitely schedule a return visit. One of the shining stars was actually the busser named Jairo. He treated us with so much kindness that we were taken aback by his superior customer service skills. He's definitely one of the reasons I will want to go back. Can't wait for our next visit!!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Brunch TooWe have enjoyed dining at Tra Vigne over the years, but this was our first time tyring the Sunday brunch. It was a lovely experience and a great value. In addition to some reat sparkling wines, highlights included chicken apple sausage made on premises, fried mozzarella, and a gourmet breakfast pizza made with thinly sliced potatoes and a slow-cooked egg on top. Bruch is a great way to experience this beautiful restaurant and a perfect way to start a Sunday of wine tasting in St. Helena and surroundings. Great wine destinations like Raymond and Del Dotto caves are just a few minutes away.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic settingTry for a table on the patio by the courtyard with the lights. There was a wedding reception just starting when we were there which was lovely but even just the normal tables under the lights in the trees looks romantic. Order the mozzarella appetizer... It is amazing!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA truly amazing dining experienceFrom the beautiful building and outdoor seating, to the cocktails, appetizers and food choices, everything truly exceeded our dining expectations. Great service as well! it was a little pricey, but when you look at the entire evening, it was money well spent as compared to other dining options where we paid similar amount for less in return5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMost Enjoyable DinnerI have always enjoyed Tra Vigne. We had our wedding reception there in 1992. Our recent dinner was to celebrate our 21st Anniversary. It was an excellent choice. I know you will enjoy the food and wonderful atmosphere.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly wait staff and veryFriendly wait staff and very knowledgable. Service and food very good. Beautiful setting. I would definity go back.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply AmazingWe had a lot of good food in the Napa Valley, but as far as food quality and atmosphere, Tra Vigne takes the cake! The perfect dinner to end our weeked Napa getaway!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMNapa TraditionOur group of four had a wonderful lunch at Tra Vigne. The fresh mozzarella on grilled bread was a great start. We each had a different past dish and nobody was disappointed. A bottle of A. Rafinelli Zinfandel to go with it as we were in heaven. A lunch stop at Tra Vigne is a tradition that we will continue with future trips to Napa Valley.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMour favorite placeI can't believe I even considered trying a different Italian restaurant while we were in town. We live in Chicago, the land of awesome Italian restaurants, and we ARE Italian, and this place is at the top of our list. The food is so good, it's impossible to not eat every single crumb. Our concierge tried to talk us into going somewhere else, and we're soooo glad we didn't listen. We have gone and will continue to go every time we are in town. The outdoor patio is beautiful and just makes it even more romantic. You're crazy if you don't try this restaurant.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways perfectWe love the outside dinning . Relaxed but elegant, cushions on the chairs, best waiters and plenty of light eat options for lunch. We drive up for lunch and open table our reservation once we know when we will arrive and always get a great table. I Wished we lived closer and could take advantage of the great full meal option. Everything is great. Some of the appetizers are a full meal some are lighter but you can always order more no one rushes you.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for Outdoor lunch!We were on our way from Healdsburg to Yountville and stopped here for lunch. The atmosphere is fantastic outside on the patio. There are trees low overhead that makes it very cozy like you are eating in a courtyard in Italy. The food was very nice but the patio was the best.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Mother's DayExcellent food and service. Don't forget to ask the mozzarella appetizer!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day brunch exceededMother's Day brunch exceeded our expectations. From the inital greeting to seating, thru dining experience. The service was outstanding, both friendly and professional. The menu was impressive and hard to decide what to order. The short rib hash was so good, I would order this again. we ordered a few appitizers and were pleased with each one.
Can't wait to go back and try for dinner!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA reason why we keep coming backWe always try new places even after we have found a place we love. This is the first time we have ever found a place we liked so much that we came back a week later. Another great service by an excellent and personable staff.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day at La Tra vigneHad a great Mothers Day brunch at this restaurant. Although they don't have the buffet like they do at Brix, they do have breakfast and lunch dishes throughout their menu. And their wine selection was excellent and we picked a Pinot that we enjoyed previously on our 10th anniversary. The ambiance was great, the kids had a blast and were unnoticed, and the food was excellent. Would go again without question and would sit outside if available.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAll around amazing experienceSurpassed all my expectations. Food, wine, atmosphere and service were all exceptional.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely setting - delicious food!We went for a late night dinner and sat outside under the cafe lights strung from the patio trees. The 4" slab granite table was impressive to seat our large family. The kale salad is incredible - unique, fresh and very tasty. We had an assortment of appetizers, each one more satisfying than the next along with one entre' -a trilogy of tuna- shared amongst us with a wonderful bottle of wine. Three generations 25 to 90 all enjoyed. Sit outside rather than in if you can as it is easier for the eldest generation to hear the conversation.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and exceptional serviceWe booked a table at the last minute and were welcomed warmly. The food is very good. The outdoor patio table was delightful. The service was truly outstanding - attentive without being intrusive. This dining experience was a highlight of a lovely visit to wine country.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMI have enjoyed dining hereI have enjoyed dining here many times although have not visited for over ten years. The expierince has not changed it is still incredible.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the state's finestCalifornia has many fine restaurants and Napa Valley and St Helena are the center of many exceptional choices. Tra Vigne is equal or better than the best that we have here. It is worth a trip from the Bay Area. Include it into a day of winery touring and you will remember the day forever.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic experienceWe hosted an out of town client for lunch and wine tasting. Our server made wonderful recommendations and everything was fabulous. Our group raved about the food and experience all day.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb brunch !Delicious food and very pleasant ambience at very reasonable prices. The only negative was the opening lengthy spiel by our server which felt like he was trying to sell us something, although service after that was excellent. Will definitely return...5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDessert is a MUST!We couldn't get over how delicious the desserts were! Salted caramel pana cotta = wow!!!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA Perfect Meal!The food was perfection. The short rib hash was melt-in-your mouth --- the meat so tender and well infused with the braising liquid. We tucked into the bread basket to sop the remaining sauce, it was THAT sublime. The smoked salmon with creme fraiche over latkes --- superb. I especially noted that the latkes were delicate and crispy.. For dessert we shared salted caramel panna cotta and gelato. We enjoyed that the salted caramel was subtle and not overwhelming sweet or salty. We favored the marscapone gelato for its creaminess. Even better than the actual desserts were the cookies --- a dense macaroon-like cookie with a surprise sprinkling of rosemary on top; and the biscotti, baked with just the right crunch.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dinner with friendsWe chose to go back to Tra Vigne for our annual girls' mudbath and were not disappointed! The patio was lovely and the food was superb. We liked that you can get half a portion of most dishes. The baked mozzarella was great as was the service.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI am home!!!What can you say when you find a place that has such a profound impact on you. The food, the view, the ambiance, the food...get it. This is such an amazing place that anything I write wont do it true justice. You will plan your time off around satisfying your creative food craving. Everything was just an amazing creation by most likely a very talented and gifted chef. The fresh mozzarella, asparagus soup, braised ribs, risotto, lava cake...People eat to live...you come to a place like this because you live to eat.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were visiting wineriesWe were visiting wineries in Napa valley and we came upon this divine restaurant. The pastas were fantastic as was the made on the spot cheese5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMItalian GemClever chefs with a great flare for creativity! My wife and I loved everything about the place. The excellence of the food was only surpassed by the attentiveness and friendliness of the staff. All of the patrons seemed to be lovers of life and having a great time too. If you are in the Napa Valley you need to give this place a try. You won't be disappointed.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNapa Valley FavoriteWe had a group of 6 dining on a Friday Night in early May. Dinner was truly delicious and the service impeccable. The server was most helpful in answering questions and making suggestions. After a day of sampling fine wines in Napa, keeping water glasses filled is a must- and they did not disappoint. Everyone's entree- including several with their homemade pastas- was mouth-watering. Calamari with asparagus very tasty! Only room for two desserts for all to share with coffee and cappuccinos, but the chocolate cake w/ice cream and panna cotta were the perfect endings. We have made several trips to Napa Valley and had enjoyable dinners, but this one was definitely memorable. We will plan to reserve a table at Tra Vigne on our next trip!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA 1st class dining experience!I've never given 5 stars to ANY business before but I believe Tra Vigne is worthy of it.
This is the 3rd year my wife and I have come to Tra Vigne and we have never been dissappointed. We now ask for our favorite server, Neal, who always makes the evening fun, friendly and a meal worthy of the price. From the lovely hostess, Ashley, to all the servers who painstakingly deliver and "present" the food, this place is a gem. They have a really nice courtyard that is upscale, beautiful, nicely lit with lights in the trees and even a seperate area for private parties. If I wasn't already married, I'd consider this restaurant for a rehearsal dinner or reception. Reservations mandatory, especially weekends. Keep up the great service Tra Vigne!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA Romantic Evening on a Budget.If you're concerned about value, Tra Vigne offers just about the best "price to quality ratio" in the Wine Country. My wife and I eat here frequently. The appetizers are substabtial enough so that three or four make a meal for us - last night we began with their signature hand made mozzarella; then an outstanding ceasar salad; finally roasted mussles and a calamari frito misto - an outstanding meal for less than 60 bucks. Service is warm and friendly; the wine list is long - there are bargains in there if you search; and the room is just about the best in the Napa Valley.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
