Diner Reviews
  • "Food was average. Service was pretty good. Ambiance was the best. Live jazz was amazing. Bolognese is what saved the entire meal."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I remember Uva as being a very quaint, and above average restaurant. This new incarnation is part sports bar/part dance club for the 50+ set. Our "organic and sustainable" appetizers were wilted, stale, and in the case of the very poorly done melon wrapped prosciutto, downright un-edible. The bad "meat" was merely haphazardly twisted around far too large pieces of old melon. Menu also stated in bold letters - NO SUBSTITUTIONS. Given that one of us has dietary restrictions, we asked our waitperson to inquire about a simple switch on a side dish. Our response what that it would cost us an additional $10. The cost of the "substitution" was not an issue...the fact that the food was so VERY sub par was. The only bright spot was our wait staff."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The food was better than average. Special requests were welcomed but with a big price. However the service was absolutely outstanding. Overall great experience and would love to go back!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Everybody got into the mood as the three man band played some wonderful 60-80s music. The food was great as usual. Our favourite place in Napa. We must dine there every summer."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "It was noisy , cold, bad service, and the pasta was terrible. Won't go back."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Bruchetta was very good. Unfortunately, the entrees were not. My wife had the linguini with sausage, peppers, etc. and requested that they hold the mushrooms. They held everything but the sausage. I had the veal picatta which was very poor."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Our dining experience was excellent as it always is at this great restaurant. Service, food, music all was great."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We had gone in on the 15th for their $10 burger & pint special at the bar, excellent! We had friends in town on the 18th so we decided to hit this popular neighborhood Trattoria again. Service is polite and attentive, we had the Vongole, Veal, Risotto and a pizza and all were spot on. Music was a bit loud but created a energetic ambiance like no other. Everyone was smiling and having a great time... We will be back!"
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "I liked the restaurant despite the food. Staff was very friendly. I ordered a thin crust pizza and the crust was very soggy. The linguini dish was fine."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "The service was very good and the food delicious, but very pricey, especially the pasta dishes. The place gets very noisy and crowded from 7 pm on, especially on Fridays. The place isn't very elegant with walls cluttered with images of stars, but we had an enjoyable night."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Good music, loud, food was ordinary in an area of really good food."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "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.""

  • "Lovely little "hidden" restaurant. Food was very good. Service was too...and it was a very busy Friday night."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Server needed more knowledge regarding dishes when ask how many servings in a dish he didn't know"
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "Great food, friendly service, fun and unpretentious atmosphere...a winner in my book."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "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
  • "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
  • "Great food, good service, live music!!! We had an amazing night. Strong recommended !!!"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "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. "

  • "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 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!"
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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."
