As always, staff was impeccable and food absolutely
Such a great place. everyone is so friendly and the food is delicious.
My brazinni was very good as was the sole.
The salads are outstanding.
Wait staff very friendly and attentive.
Tony & I miss you guys!!!!! We can not wait until we can dine with you again!!!!❤️
Consistently excellent food and service.
We will return.
The food, service, and atmosphere at Bistro Don Giovanni's were all fantastic. The pasta specials were fabulous, and the walnut salad delicious. This is my 3rd trip to this restaurant and all 3 experiences have been fantastic. Highly recommend to others.
Have been coming here for years and love it. The pastas are fresh and the sauces are perfect
The food was great, and the service wonderful, but the noise level was deafening. It was so noisy, we couldn't hear each other. Too bad, because I don't know what they can do about that.
This was a Birthday dinner for my daughter and my family was all present. We and normally have a better experience but the service from our server was very slow and the restaurant was way too warm. The food was good and we hope we have better luck next time.
Our server seemed very unmotivated and not very happy not sure what was going on with him.
The ambiance is well better outside but it was too cool.
I hadn’t been to this restaurant for a very long time. The Caesar salad was excellent but the lamb gnocchetti was only average. Will try it again but will Oder a different entree.
As always the food here was great and the service superb.
As always, perfection! The food is spectacular, but it’s always the people who make it feel like home.
Always a favorite, I love eating/drinking at BDG, the food is beautifully prepared and presented and the service is friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Luckily, the menu changes with the seasons and what is locally available so even though I eat there quite often, there is always something new to try!
It's kinda loud, but fun.... Food was Great, Service OK, not great. Waitress from another land... far far away... didn't get US customs...
Everything was fabulous from the view on the deck of the fountain and vineyards to the cocktail and especially the food! Frito Misto with fresh green beans, cauliflower, onions, calamari, and fresh tarragon with spicy aioli dipping sauce was delicious. Octopus salad had the most tender octopus we’ve ever had.... including in Greece many times! I also had the authentic Genoese pesto with “handkerchief” pasta.... apparently one of best pesto recipes! I believe it.... extremely creamy. And my husband had the spaghetti with clams..... very generous portion of clams and flavorful sauce! We thoroughly enjoyed our experience as one of the best in a long time!
Great food, relaxed vibe, and the service was lovely.
It was a fantastic dinner. Service was as good as is possible and we both loved the food. I had the special Oxtails and Polenta (both were amazing) and my partner had the spaghetti and clams which she loved. We have eaten here hundreds of times which should tell you how much we like it. But the food last night was perfect (thank you Scott).
Everybody was very nice and personal. Food was great, service was outstanding. Quick and efficent.
Bistro Don Giovanni's is one of my all-time favorite places. Always a great meal in a perfect Napa setting. Excellent service is their standard. A must!
Outstanding across the board. Food, service, atmosphere was top notch and very welcoming. Definitely will return and recommend to friends and family.
We make a point of dining here every time we visit the Napa Valley. It’s simple and delicious. Try it once and you’ll be hooked like we are. Yum.
The food was superb, as was the service!!
One of the most consistently delicious restaurants in Napa.
Great Italian food!! The frito mixto was really good! We also had the Caesar Salad and Octopus salad which were both very well executed! The clam spaghetti was super delicious! Pasta is fresh and very well done! For dessert, get the Tiramisu! One the best I have ever had! Super smooth soft texture!! Thank you so much for everything! Will definitely be back! The ambience is great and decor is nice. There is also outside seating in the day which seems lovely for a sunny day out with outstanding Napa Valley views!
Great food, professional attentive staff and a great wine country vibe!
As always the food and service was excellent. Our favorite restaurant in the Napa Valley. Dine there
4 to 5 times a year!
We're local and have dined here many times over the years. Our most recent meal, a very early dinner or late lunch, was on the weekend during a lull period between 3 and 6. We enjoyed a meatball and polenta appetizer. Two pastas, a mushroom and asparagus dish and gnocchi, were less successful. The mushrooms weren't properly cleaned and there was grit in them. They lacked mushroom flavor and the asparagus was also not very flavorful. The gnocchi were pretty tough.
Service is always friendly but our server was off--our wine was served late, with our appetizer instead of ahead of it, and promised bread wasn't delivered.
The place is deservedly popular but the menu hardly changes and one has to think they are resting on their laurels a bit. We'll return but won't rush to do so.
The food and service are excellent. The décor and finishes are a bit dated. Given a choice, food and service is the most important aspect of a dining experience to us. We will be back!
I have never had a bad meal here! I love everything about this place. Could be in the Italian countryside. If I lived closer, I would eat here several times a week.
Good food, great service. We sat by the fireplace and it was quite nice.
A beautiful setting and the food was wonderful.
Another amazing meal at BDG. Great service, a fun atmosphere and delicious Italian fare. That’s what you’ll enjoy here. So many by-the-glass wines pair perfectly with all the starters - we chose the octopus and carpaccio dishes with a crisp white from Mt. Etna. Hard to beat their gnocchetti in ragu. You can’t go wrong with any choice. Trust the chefs and let the staff take care of you!
One of my favorite dining spots, wonderful people, great bartenders and delicious food
I love this place. Beautiful Italian food in a fabulous setting! We had the Petrale Sole and the pork chop. Both were outstanding. We sat outside and it was a gorgeous day. A perfect lunch!!!
Great restaurant that is very consistent. Only question I have is why is the lunch menu the same as the dinner...why not a lighter offering for lunch?
The ravioli with lemon cream sauce cannot be beaten!
