A word from Uva Trattoria - Napa
Established in 1999, Uva Trattoria has been a local favorite for over thirteen years. The extensive menu, of Regional Italian cuisine, specializes in homemade pastas and pizzas. The lively bar has a creative cocktail list with a wine list of both California and Italian wines, specializing in local Napa Valley wines.
Uva is owned and operated by Napa native Aaron Diaz who spent 19 plus years under the tutelage of legendary restaurateur Donna and Giovanni Scala. Scala's guidance helped Diaz develop a deep passion for Italian cuisine, wine and culture where he shares the philosophy of "Less is more" with his Chef Marcos Ramirez.
Uva features live jazz, blues, big band and R&B, with no cover charge, Wednesday thru Sunday night . A feature making Uva one of the most popular restaurants in the Napa Valley.
Diner Reviews
  • "The food was great. Nice wine list. But the service here is in no hurry. We had to ask twice for water and bread and it probably took 20 minutes for them to come. Our group had a variety of pizzas, pastas, and steak and everyone was happy with their meals. Food tasted fresh. There was a jazz band playing and definitely kept a fun upbeat vibe."

  • "I took my family to give this local restaurant a try. Read about a special they were doing on Sunday night and we all wanted to try it. I called, made a reservation and asked if they were going to have the special and was again told yes. When we were all seated we asked about the special and they seemed confused. When the manager came back he told us it was "only available if you sat at the bar". I told him that was not what we were told and we had all come in wanting the special. He said he understood, but the owner told him there "were no exceptions" and he was sorry. Wow, the restaurant was nearly empty and you are going to let us leave disappointed! We then had just a very mediocre dinner...shame on them...we will not be back, ever!"

  • "It was louder than expected, but the service was attentive (although it was really busy), the food fresh and tasty, and the live music starting at 8:30pm was a pleasant surprise!"

  • "Good music, loud, food was ordinary in an area of really good food."

  • "My wife and I were in Napa celebrating our 35th anniversary. It was our last night in town and we felt like Italian but didn't want to strive far from our hotel. Uva Trattoria is located downtown on a quiet side street with a few outdoor tables and a nice inside dinning room and separate bar area. Server was friendly and knowledgeable of their food and wine list. At our request, she ask the chef to make us up a salad that was not on the menu. It appeared as if it were a specialty item plated just for us. My wife and I both had pasta dishes that were amazing. We opted to take desert and our wine back to our suite, which finished our Napa experience with perfection. Thanks Uva Trattoria."

  • "We had dinner with friends. Everyone's dish was great. I also have some food allergies and the waitress went out of her way to make sure the food I was eating was safe for me and had the chef make a special dish."

  • "We've been to this Restaurant twice. On each occasion both the food and service was excellent. Even though the restaurant was very busy, we were able to enjoy relaxed meals and never felt rushed. After dinner we were able to enjoy the live music in the bar area. Highly reccomended."

  • "Solid family restaurant with live music. Should stick to traditional Italian fare as they do not pull off more complicated dishes."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "I came here with girlfriends for a night out- everything we ate was delicious and easy to share so we could try more! The band that played was incredible and while it was a smidgen loud to hear everything my friends were saying it was well worth it and created an awesome ambiance and experience. Would definitely come back here next time I'm in Napa!"

  • "Uva is a true find - great environment blending good jazz, bar, food. A local's bar/restaurant. Easy parking in downtown Napa. Manager and staff went out of their way to please my wife and me. I cut my veal picatta with my fork."

  • "Was visiting in Napa. Wanted to see what locals liked. Found it. Uva looked to be a local favorite. Food was excellent, price was moderate+, service was outstanding. Very accommodating for needs requests. I'd for sure go again if in Napa."

  • "We came here for our daughter's graduation from UC Davis. We arrived early and spent some much needed time in the bar area exploring the cocktail menu. The bartender, (Sorry, name forgotten), was great and recommended many fabulous choices. However, after several experiments, we unanimously decided that the "Quebrada" was the absolute best. We then delved into a classic 7 course Italian family style meal over the next 3+ hours with Ellie. Antipasti, pizza, zuppa, insalata, pasta, carne, and dolce. Coupled with 3 bottles of the '09 Beaucanon Cabernet Sauvignon. And then the coup de grace, dancing!!! Whatever dolts posted that the music was too loud, should stay at home and watch re-runs of the "Little house on the prairie.""

  • "Uva served our party really well, even though a few could speak no English. Food and service, as always, was extraordinary! A mess-up, however! My Chinese student made reservations, but did not know his parents were coming from China. I called in to add two, and explained how important it was that no one reveal to my student that I was adding two more. But, when Hualin called, the receptionist spilled the beans. He came to me asking if his parents were coming. I had kept this secret for months, but then someone let the "cat out of the bag". When I called back, the receptionist was apologetic, saying no one had made any note about this or she would have been more careful. Dinner was WONDERFUL, but I was a bit upset by this mess-up."

  • "Our dinner was very good! Service was attentive & knowledgeable. Menu had several selections, was hard to choose. Full bar. 2 person band playing was a bit loud but they were very good. Bar was full. The staff brought out a dessert with a candle for my friends birthday, very personal touch. Will return!"

  • "We were there on a Sunday night. Music was TOO LOUD! It was hard to carry on a conversation. In the Noise Level rating, there's no space for "too loud"."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "I had a wonderful evening eating and listening to live jazz music. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for some live entertainment and good homemade pasta. The waiter had an excellent suggestion on wine and hit the nail right on the head! I would love to visit again the next time I am in Napa!"
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "The food was good. Tomato Soup and Salad were excellent, so was the saffron fettuccine with sea food . The calamari appetizer was ok, little bland. My daughter loved the flour less chocolate cake with gelato. The service at the table was excellent. The place was loud and the tables are arranged little too close to each other. That was the only negative for us."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We had riceballs primi, then blue-cheese gnocchi. Riceballs sit in bed of marinara, full of flavor, not heavy, well sized proportion for primi. Gnocchi are so light, with a texture that serves as a perfect balance for the silky white cheese sauce. Great find! This is really good basic Italian, not your uber-wine country thing with incumbent trappings - we save that for tasting or get away weekends. We just wanted good food downtown and were pleasantly surprised. Definitely recommended, and we will return."

  • "Food is always very good. Attentive service. Friendly staff. we thought by their ad that there was going to be music at mother's day brunch , but not disappointed that that it was not until dinner. Our one of the favorite places in Napa "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We enjoyed a delicious meal here with gracious service. My husband loved the saffron seafood linguine, & my ravioli with brown butter sauce was divine. We especially enjoyed the live music though we were sad that it didn't get started until we had almost finished our meal. Our only complaint was no fault of the restaurant's...PSA to fellow diners: we all love photos when having a good time, but let's all be considerate of other diners when using the flash on our cameras in the dining room. Our dining experience was negatively impacted by 2 tables taking dozens of photos with the flash. 2 or 3 I could handle with good humor, but not 50 photos of the baby (no exaggeration) on one side & every possible grouping of friends on the other!"

  • "I chose Uva's because I wanted some simple pasta and I'm a vegetarian. In the past there's always been something like angel hair with tomatoes and basil or something. This time everything had meat in it with a heavy cream sauce. I had to choose something and have all tweaked just for me. None of the bar drinks sounded good but my husband insisted it get one. It was very sour (had Campari, but was recommended by waitress) . I had to add sugar so I could drink it. I ordered a second drink of a different kind (had lemon) but it was very sour too. I had to add sugar to that one too. The salads and desserts were great though. "

  • "We were looking for a new spot to dine and I looked at the reviews online and saw a few photos on one of the websites and the craziest thing happened. I saw my father who passed away 2 years ago in one of the pictures sitting at the bar! The date on ther register was from 2010 he was still alive at that time. So we decided we needed to check it out. We had the best time. Food was great, the restaurant was full of all different types of people, all ages. Everyone seemed happy! The music started at 8:30 and was so good. What a great vibe. We will definitely be back. Thanks Dad!"

  • "Made these reservations for 8 way in advance and was seated in separate room at round table large enough for 14 people. Couldn't even talk to one another! Requested to be moved and waited for a long while before waiter finally came over and relocated us. Manager worked with waiter but didn't come to our table once. Mentioned in the reservation that we were celebrating an anniversary and nothing was said. Service was just okay (took 1/2 of our drink orders and then left) but food was good and band was great. We visited this restaurant last year and had a great time and was hoping for the same kind of night. Just not to be this year."

  • "Great time, the music was a nice touch but it's the food the local vibe and friendly service that makes this local Trattoria feel like a Italian Trattoria. We can see why it's been a local favorite for 15 years, great job Uva & Staff....we will be back!"

  • "The food was good. Our server was good, friendly, and efficient. The overall experience was slow, drinks were slow to arrive as was dinner and desert. Don't know what other tables ordered, but some tables in our area turned over 2x during our seating. Once again the food was good, our waitress was good, friendly and efficient. The experience will not keep us from returning."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Our experience wasn't as positive as the average review for this restaurant. The service by our food server was very attentive. All our questions pertaining to menu items were patiently answered. Quality of food ranged from excellent to fair. One of 3 entrees ordered was delicious, the other 2 didn't quite meet expectations - flavor was a little uninspiring. The spinach salad was wonderful. The risotto balls appetizer was just OK. Like some other reviewers, we thought the portion size could have been larger. Our dining experience got off to a shaky start, as the hostess was rude and unprofessional. Given the abundance of fine restaurants in the Napa Valley to choose from, we are not in a hurry to return here."

  • "We stumbled upon this from a general search for food. We made reservations and got in before the rush. The food was fresh but didn't take an exaggerated amount of time to come out. The cocktails were amazing and unique in flavor. We will definitely go back."

  • "I found this restaurant online and was very pleased. It was easy to find and the food was great. Being Calabrese Italian, I thoroughly enjoyed the authenticity of the menu. Unfortunately, we had too much wine during the day and didn't make it for the music. Next time I look forward to hearing the tunes."

  • "This place has an outstanding chef. Dishes are balanced, flavorful, with fresh ingredients, and simply delicious! Notable dishes include the gnocchi in gargonzola sauce, garlic bread, and Brie French Fries. I'm sure there are other fine choices others would recommend but these are my favorites. In terms of ambience, not the most romantic spot in the area, though you could certainly have a nice evening out with your significant other if you request their side room away from the bigger groups and live music near the bar. Our waitstaff was attentive and prompt without being overbearing. Prices were very reasonable, especially for Napa. Our check came to about $60 for an app, two mains, one dessert. Overall a gem and certainly worth a try!"
