    Amazing. Had a nice local pale ale. Bread was tasty. The Caesar salad was great, and the pastas special: fish, ricotta, and greens, was dynamite. Highly recommend if you’re passing through.

    Had a wonderful birthday dinner for my wife. Great wine, great food, great atmosphere with great friends and great weather. What could be better. I really like the new outdoor patio with the tile and getting rid of the gravel. Way more stable to walk on and it is beautiful!

    Had to go back to our favorite restaurant for our anniversary...we were pleasantly surprised that the outdoor dining setup was so beautiful. Ordered our favorite Frito misto, salmon and pork chop entrees...all were delicious. The fritto was light and crispy, shrimp and calamari were so fresh. The salmon was crispy and mashed potato and tomatoes and sauce were delicious and pork chop was so tender and grilled to perfection and potatoes were so good. Focaccia and olive oil were so good. When our appetizer arrived we didn’t get appetizer plates and was not offered pepper for our salmon. Water was filled and we did get checked on. We still love our fave place.

    Fresh ingredients, tasty food, large portions that are good to share. We got the gnocchi with a ragu, which was rather salty. We went between lunch and dinner service and I'm glad we did as the parking lot is very small for the size of the restaurant. By the time we left, cars were circling around waiting for a spot to park. Go early if you can.

    This is our favorite restaurant in the Valley. The service is excellent; our waitstaff was wonderful. We loved the enhanced outdoor dining area and our table location kept the noise level from other tables to a minimum. Also, you would never know that you were just a few yards away from the highway leading up into the valley. Our menu selections were very good. Hopefully we can return to Bistro don Giovani sooner rather than later.

    The food was amazing in flavor and presentation. We thoroughly enjoyed the spinach ravioli with lemon cream sauce and the pizza. We were fortunate enough to meet a group that has been enjoying wine and food at the bistro since the doors opened in 1983. Great service and ambiance made the meal that much better. We will definitely be returning.

    Delightful evening at Bistro Don Giovanni. The garden with its fountain and lighting was once again as beautiful as I remember. The beet and haricot salad was light and lovely. We ordered three different pasta dishes: the handkerchief pasta but with bolognese, the half and half ravioli with both tomato sauce and lemon cream (a personal fav), and the delicious risotto with corn and mushrooms....each dish yummy with its own delicious, distinctive flavor. Best of all was our waiter, Oscar, who was so attentive and warm and gracious. We will be back!!!

    Awesome time with friends! Always recommend this place as locals. Food was fantastic but ask for the sauce on the side on the Ribeye as it will not be medium rare if that is what you like. Everything else was fantastic! Shout out on the Lamb Shank!! Great job with service. Team service never lets you wait! These guys Rocked it!

    Our server, Athena, was just outstanding!! Way beyond expectations. And the food was really delicious! I like a lot of ice and always order a glass. I have never had anyone notice that the glass of ice was empty and bring me another glass without my having to ask. Amazing and so appreciated! She was like that all night. Appeared regularly and was so kind and efficient. She really made it one of the nicest experiences I've had, Please thank her for me.

    We sat outside and enjoyed the ambiance of the splashing fountain and lights in the evening air. Staff was welcoming, very quick service although we never felt rushed. The food was as wonderful as we had hoped. Fresh ingredients, full of flavor and texture. We had a very enjoyable dining experience and would definitely return, as well as recommend to others!

    Had an excellent time here! The server (sorry forgot his name... he wore glasses and was middle-aged and tall) was very attentive. Most restaurants don't seem to care about comments on reservations but the server let me know while my wife was in the bathroom that he knew and was planning on bringing out dessert with a candle. The Margherita pizza and lamb shank were both very good!

    Bistro Don Giovanni is an excellent restaurant and we have eaten there many times with the same very good overall quality. Last night the dining patio was a wonderful place to be. The martini I ordered was damn near perfect! The service was very good. The food also very good. I wished the short ribs were braised maybe an additional 30 minutes so the fat was completely rendered out. That aside, it was a treat to be at Don Giovanni and we look forward to our next meal there...
