Outside dining was delightful. It was chilly and they accommodated us nicely by turning on heaters. Fritters Misto was ok. Shrimp in the dish was not good but fennel was fabulous.
Pasta dishes were great. Recommend them.

The outdoor patio setting for lunch was pleasing to the eye, with tables well-spaced. The service was attentive but not intrusive. The food was excellent. An absolutely excellent restaurant.

Simply a lovely venue with vineyards adjacent. The Fritto Misto appetizer was excellent. Not so my Chicken Diavola. The waitress noticed that I had pushed much of it to the side because it was dry and informed the chef, who took it off the bill. So accountability goes all the way to the top in this place. Everything else we had was really very good. I heartily recommend Don Giovanni’s.

And yet another splendid evening of dining at Bistro Don Giovanni. One of my guests had not visited since the management had fully implemented the outdoor dining space. He was awed by this amazing outdoor dining experience. Bravo to the management and staff for such consistency in providing the Bistro Don Giovanni experience!

Ordered a Steak (Medium Rare) and it was poorly done, it was seared and very tough. Must say the Mashed potatoes were good. Appetizers with Calamari and Shrimp were average.

Don Giovanni is consistently serving great food and wine at a reasonable price. It was a little hot, but shady where we sat. They have Bella Union wine available by the glass which is a great Far Niente product.

This is my favorite restaurant in all of Napa Valley. I'm a local and have been going here for at least twenty years. The food is always consistently great. The service impeccable. You get the Napa Valley experience with the exorbitant prices. They transformed their outdoor fountain area into a beautiful garden seating area. I felt safe. Please make this your favorite restaurantt oo.

This place has not missed a beat; if anything, it’s better than ever. The expanded outdoor seating adds a new dimension to the experience, and the service is exceptional. Still, the food should be the star of the show , and this place does not disappoint. The appetizers were outstanding, the salads imaginative and tasty, and the fresh pasta was out of this world. I would have loved to try the tiramisu, but there was simply not enough room. Kudos to the staff for an exceptional dining experience.
