Dine there regularly, love the food. Other local restaurants can't compete with the selection which changes regularly.
Have eaten here several times. Food, service, experience wonderful! The food is full of flavor and prepared to perfection. The octopus salad is delicious, grilled to perfection. The fish and other entrees on my visits have been complemented with fresh and flavorful sauces and sides.
On a lovely date with my husband, the weather was perfect, beautiful surroundings outdoor dining among the beautiful gardens and vineyards. Great food, service and ambience
Celebrating a birthday on a lovely day with a table under the trees.
fresh food and excellent service. Highly recommend the ravioli with lemon cream sauce!
We had the best time!! Our server was super and all other levels of staff too were super helpful!! My favorite restaurant, hands down!
Great food as always and very good outdoor ambience
An early dinner in the garden was absolutely stunning. From the meatballs and polenta to the pasta bolognese to the Branzino and butterscotch pudding all with views of the valley.
Excellent food, great atmosphere. We stopped for lunch on our Napa trip, and were so impressed. We loved the lamb ragu gnocchi, the hot italian pizza, and the grilled octopus appetizer. We also had a tight turnaround (about 45 min), and our waiter made sure we got our food and check in a timely manner.
Always a great experience but Oscar was delightful and extremely helpful with my food allergies
Love this place so much! The food is amazing - ambiance incredible! And they put up with my weird blue cheese olive request :). Always look forward to my next meal here!
Sit under the umbrellas thru out the garden surrounding the fountain.
The food was so delicious, and the Caesar salad was the best I’ve ever tasted. We can’t wait to go back for another amazing meal!!!
Now that Press has decided to not be a steakhouse, Don G. is my fav restaurant in Napa Valley. Hope they can keep the outdoor patio dining area per my.
Other than the confusion re: missed reservation, the outdoor dining experience was excellent.
Every part of the meal was delicious. The service was excellent.
Marvelous lunch outside with an excellent waiter!
Amazing. Felt like we were transported to Italy. Everything was perfect. Thank you!
In wine country and our waiter couldn't recommend wine as he said he doesn't drink... What the heck? Our waiter never brought us our balsamic mix for our bread that I asked for. Bus boy was great with refilling my water and then bought us a carafe for the table. Butterscotch dessert was really creamy but didn't really taste like butterscotch to me. Husband had delicious lemon creme raviolis. My pesto pasta was ok. Misto salad was yummy. We sat next to a lovely couple from Texas which made our experience more pleasant. We will definitely go back to try other menu items and hopefully get a waiter who has can recommend wine.
Don Gio never fails to delight my palate. Tables were set out by the fountain that has whimsical sculpture. The weather, of course, was sunny, mild, perfect. I ordered carpaccio. It was superb. My husband ordered the grilled octopus he “mmmmed” about throughout his meal. My only negative experience was our waiter. He incessantly asked us if we wanted to order drinks or our meal in the initial minutes of our being seated. When we asked him to give us a few minutes, he then ignored us and provided poor service throughout the meal. But the food and setting were magnificent!
I loved the place overall, however, my Caesar salad was minuscule for $16--that was rather disappointing. However, my sister ordered the Carpaccio, which she shared with me. I had never had it before and I thought it was one of the best dishes I ever had. My taste buds were happy. She also had the salmon and it was outstanding--she gave me a bite. The wine was reasonable, too; so, it was a very nice experience and I would go back there, again; however, I would choose something else, as the salad was a disappointment.
I would definitely recommend it!
After numerous visits over the years Bistro Don Giovanni has always been consistent.
The food is always excellent and they have an excellent wine list with many local wineries offered.
Lunch outside was outstanding. The appetizers were amazing. Best calamari I've ever had. Likewise for the gnocchetti and the linguini. The service seemed a little slower than it is when dining inside, likely due to the distance from the kitchen and bar, but well worth the wait.
There food is all great.
Good to go there anytime.
Love love love
Bistro Don Giovanni is my favorite outside dining venue! The food and service is always consistent. It continues to have the most delightful ambience in Napa, settled outside surrounded by our beautiful vineyards and the Napa hillside in the background.
Outdoors. Space heater provided. McDonald did a great job as our waiter. Menu always wonderful. Plenty of standards and always a few off menu items.
Beautiful outdoor setting
Fabulous atmosphere, service and food!
Excellent! Service (Ruth) was superb.
Delicious meal and excellent service
Best Italian food in the Napa Valley. Outstanding service from the time we were greeted until we left. The food arrived in perfect scheduling, let us enjoy each course.
Did I mention that they had one of the best Manhattan's I have tasted.
We will go back.
What a great night outdoor dinning with friends I haven’t seen in about 2 years it was fabulous!!
Still and always a favorite
Spur of the moment trip to Napa, couldn’t have come across a better restaurant! The manager and our waiter Enrique were excellent. Incredible food, staff, & ambience. Highlight of our trip!
