Best and favorite restaurant in the Napa Valley for years. Giovanni and staff from first hello to dessert exceed expectations in all categories. We can’t wait to plan our next reservation…..the quintessential place to dine and have fun at the same time.
We've been customers of Bistro Don Giovanni for years. They've expanded their outdoor patio into a lovely space for dining. We recently went for my sister's birthday as a special treat. The prices are pretty high, but it was a wonderful dining experience
This place is beautiful. Service is great. Food is good but not worthy of 5 stars.
Food excellent but service not good. Felt everyone was rushed so not a relaxed atmosphere. Male server insisted calling me “young lady” and “senorita” despite my correcting him (I’m in my mid-50’s)
We went to dinner for my sons birthday. We ate indoors and the flies were relentless. For the cost we shouldn’t have had to deal with this. Also, the service seemed a bit slow and when our meals did arrive, they weren’t as hot as we would have liked. Did they sit in the warmer too long without being brought to our table?
Love this place....excellent food and ambiance. Feels like a trip to Italy.
We’ve been wanting to try this place for a while and am glad we came! Everything was delicious and we really enjoyed sitting outside since the weather was perfect!
We had a memorable time. Met Mr. Giovanni, he shared a touching story with us regarding his wife. The staff was very helpful with recommendations and filling our request for food and tee shirts to remember our special evening.
We are still talking about the food.
Will be a must visit each time we revisit Napa.
Late Sunday reservation, wait staff seemed tired and didn’t really roll out the red carpet…. Slow service, distracted, not unfriendly but not too friendly either…. Seemed like they were done with it…. Will try again, and hopefully there will be a different energy from the staff. Setting is great, food was quite good…
Delicious food and great service! Loved the homemade pastas.
Wonderful as usual. Great service and the best food!!!
This place was great. We were seated outside, the environment was great, the food was delicious, the wait staff was attentive. Couldn't have been a better experience.
Perfect table for two near the vineyard- it was a slice of heaven!
We always have a wonderful time at Don Giovannis. Food is excellent and the service is very good. Their fried olives are a must as well as their Don Manhattan. Everything is made fresh. A must visit when in Napa.
Perfect way to end a perfect day in Napa
Love this place. Been coming here for 20 years. Recently, prices have increased dramatically!
Sorry to say the value is no longer worth it. Will probably look for another go to dinner date spot.
We have taken 3 different trips this summer that involved special dinners. Bistro Don Giovani was BY FAR the BEST. We will recommend this stop to all our friends. A true GEM in the Napa Valley.
Thank you for outstanding service and great ambiance. Would definitely recommend to friends!
This is our favorite Napa place…hands down! Ambience, food and service. SOOOOOOO glad they survived COVID.
Absolutely love this place! Beautiful location, lovely ambiance, great service and delicious food. Try the ravioli with lemon cream sauce——so good!!!
Absolutely wonderful dining experience...we were seated outside next to the fountain. It was magical and of course the food was amazing!!! I would highly recommend this restaurant for an all around spectacular dining experience! Can't wait to return the next time we head back to wine country!!
One of our favorite spots! Recommend this restaurant to anyone that is visiting the area.
Bistro Don Giovanni’s outdoor fountain/garden area is a smash hit! The food (fresh ravioli with lemon cream sauce, caprese salad) was delicious as always.
The waiters were exceptional (Martine). We often take our out-of-town guests here for a true Napa experience.
Always good, always consistent. What the food industry needs more of. And our server Martin was fantastic
Food was delish - as always.
Best Negroni in the state.
And we were wowed by our server Enrique. He was just terrific and made my birthday
Wonderful outdoor setting, excellent food, friendly efficient staff, were allowed to bring our dog.
Amazing food. Amazing ambience
Excellent as always. The outside dining area has expanded. The tables are not very close together. It was perfect! The service was excellent also. We all enjoyed our meals. The octopus salad was fresh and light. The risotto special was very flavorful. And the lemon ravioli were perfect as always. Perfect lunch with out of town friends.
Our go to restaurant when we have guests in town. We live 5 minutes away so that’s an added bonus. We have gone multiple times with numerous friends ordering a variety of entrees and have never been disappointed.
Love the atmosphere in the outside dining area, we were seated by the fountain and it was divine. The homemade pasta and sauce…also divine.
Amazing as always!
Loved coming back to this place after 3 years. We had the Caprese Salad, Octopus Salad, the Rissoto, and the Steak and Fries - topped of with a beautiful Tiramisu. Truly an enjoyable experience. Kudos to the bartender for making an amazing Negroni too.
We will be back again! Grazie Mille
The restaurant was very busy but we were seated right away. The service was good. We came because we have missed the salmon. It did not disappoint. The caprese salad was chunks of tomato and cheese. Both tasted good but the presentation was not what we expected for a $20 salad. Over all this is a very good, consistent restaurant. We will go back.
Samir was great
GREAT service from Enrique! He really went above and beyond to keep us warm on a chilly evening!
The food here was incredible. We had risotto and ragu, both of which were delightful. The ambience was romantic and cozy in the courtyard with the fountain going. This was the best food we ate in all of Napa.
One of our favorite places to eat in Napa. Great food, excellent service and a nice outdoor dining experience.
Outdoor area is lovely and nicely spaced. Service was perfect. Food wonderful
Best lunch in Napa/Sonoma, great food, outstanding service for many years. If we are in the area or just passing through we always choose to eat here.
Our server was terrible and pretty much ruined our experience. My fish was under cooked and practically raw, NOT appropriate for Branzino. My husband had rigatoni which was just fair and basic, nothing to rave about. It's a beautiful spot to sit outside. It's a shame our server was so awful. Just FYI- I rarely ever write a bad review, but this place bummed us out on our first night in Napa. Go somewhere else
