A word from Tra Vigne
Tra Vigne is a ristorante set apart among the vines, creating the illusion of an enchanted Italian village. Behind the ivy covered walls are Three distinct environments: The grand dining room with 30 foot ceilings and a hand-carved bar, the courtyard with alfresco service, and the Magnum Library for special events. Chef's creations from antipasti to pastas, entrees and desserts pay passionate homage to traditional Italian cookery. The restaurant's extensive wine cellar features Napa Valley vintners and Italian varietals.

    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.

    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.

    Highly recommend! The butternut squash ravioli were AMAZING! The server was very accomodating to my request for providing an appetizer size portion. I should have ordered as my main! Also worth mentioning was the butterscotch panne cotta topped with salted caramel and a dollip of whipped cream.

    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.

    After a day of wine tasting the outdoor dining area was a perfect way to unwind and relax with excellent menu choices and attentive service. The strawberry rhubarb dessert was a great finish to the delicious pork chop dish. We will undoubtedly include a stop at Tra Vigne on our next trip.

    I had 2 half portions of pasta. The paperdella with rabbit was tasty but needed something to finish it and the pasta was slightly overlooked. The green tagliatelle with lamb had nicer flavor though I've had the dish done better in Miami. My experience was better the year before, there were no specials offered and the menu seemed rushed this visit. Service was pleasant.

    This dining establishment offers it all . . . from their large parking lot to the stunning ambiance (inside & out) to the entire waitstaff, beautiful full bar and most of all, fantastic food at reasonable prices. An incredible appetizer is the fresh and creamy Mozzarella "Al Minuto" Bruschetta (4 large pieces - lightly grilled) drizzled with Napa Valley olive oil & served table side ($14) you'll look at your dining guest(s) and wonder (and trust me, they will too) if getting a second order would be too much (wink) The Halibut in a lemon caper & white wine reduction with mixed pea shoots ($28) was Crazy Good. The creamy risotto with duck leg ($25) is Simply Outrageous. One of the best overall restaurants in the Napa Valley, hands down.

    We had a late lunch at Tra Vigne this Sunday afternoon. It was blissful!! There is something about Tra Vigne that sets it apart from almost any other dining experience anywhere. It just feels special, like you have been transported to Tuscany. The atmosphere is welcoming, the staff friendly and helpful and the food? It is spectacularly delicious and perfect. We had actually just returned from Italy several days before our visit and although we certainly ate at some great places there, we both concluded that our meal at Tra Vigne was hands-down vastly superior to anything we had in Italy. The pizza was OMG so good. But I must comment on the INCREDIBLE butterscotch pannecotta I had for dessert. I still dream about it, really. Yummy!!
