    We love Bistro Don Giovanni. We have been going there for 30 years and it is simply the best restaurant in the Napa Valley! The ravioli was perfectly prepared, the risotto was also delicious, and the service was excellent as always.

    I've been eating there as long as they have been open - 50, 75 times? Great spot, great food, wonderful service. The new outdoor patio - it used to be the garden and waiting area for tables -is now huge and filled with colorful umbrellas and sculptures. It touches Trefethen's Carbernet vines - a marvelous sight and smell. The grapes were in full bloom yesterday - don't know how in this drought. Don Giovanni is as good as it gets, one of the best Italian restaurants in the country, with a great variety of choices and marvelous wine list - it does not get any better.

    They were spot on as far as our reservation and the special request. Good timing with the food. It is always very good, but the prices have gone wayyyyyyyy up. $45 for veal parm. $21 for Caprese salad and they grow their own tomatoes. I always recommend but will add the "a bit pricey" to my suggestion.

    Prioritized regulars. Took over an hour and half to get our dinner as we watched tables around us arrive, be served and leave before we ever had food. Pasta was fine but not worth the wait. The atmosphere was the only thing that kept us from walking out.

    We love this place and have eaten here many times. Great food, great service beautiful atmosphere. What more could you want?? We shared a ceasar salad with just the right amount of anchovies, the lamb ragu gnocchi was tasty and rich as was the grilled salmon with mashed potatoes. The aperol spritz was perfect. Only the cafe affogato was a bit too much - too much ice cream and whipped cream.

    Both the ambience and food were disappointing. Bistro Don Giovsnni has been one of my favorite Napa restaurants for many years. I have particularly enjoyed the lovely patio during Covid restrictions. My most recent visit was simply not what i expected. The patio is now covered with a couple of makeshift sunshades, creating a tent like atmosphere. Gone is the feeling of being in beautiful garden in Italy. The pillars are loaded with rotating fans, adding to the chaotic feeling of this once lovely outdoor area. The food was just okay. I'll return, perhaps in the fall when the fans and sunshades have disappeared. Maybe just for a cocktail.

    We came on a recommendation from a concierge in SF and didn’t really know what to expect. To say that we were blown away would be an understatement. Everything about our dining experience was wonderful. Our waiter, Damien, was amazing and so attentive. The ambience was great and all of the food we ordered was fantastic. I ordered bolognese for dessert… that should tell you everything you need to know.
