This was our second time in this restaurant. The waiter was fantastic last time, the one we got this time seemed preoccupied and not attentive enough. The food was ok but our table position near the kitchen was not great. This is a restaurant with great potential which should pay attention to food quality and service...

As usual, this is a comfortable pleasant spot to take friends..
Our waiter was excellent, attentive and helpful...

Our pasta dinners were impressive in the generous amounts served in lovely bowls, however in the case of the 3 Lamb Ragu dishes ordered, plenty of sauce to accompany the pasta, but not enough lamb in the sauce to recognize. This was disappointing!
The coffee was also very weak, and luke warm...
Maybe it was an off night, as usually, this restaurant is a winner!

Bistro Don Giovanni delivers a wonderful dining experience to combine with a visit to Napa Valley. Service is attentive, professional, and delivered with a smile. The Italian menu specials are tantalizing and the barkeep pays attention to detail.

This is not the first time dining here, so we are already familiar with this establishment. With that said, this was a fantastic dining experience to celebrate my birthday and recommend it highly to everyone. I will help celebrate with others for their special occasion!! I will say, however, that the acoustics can get quite bad with the noise level being extremely high.

It has taken us years to get here, and it was well worth the wait!! I would recommend this outstanding restaurant to everyone. Food was great as was the service!! Can not say enough good things about our experience. A must get is the ravioli’s two ways, both sauces are to die for. I do recommend making a reservation.

Stopped here for lunch after relaxed tasting at
Cakebread. Reservations were at 1:15 pm. We arrived at about 1:00 and were seated immediately outside. Seemed quiet and day was spectacular - warm and clear - with the fountain providing nice water fall like background that masked auto and
customer noise.

Waiter was attentive without being pushy and made sure our meal was gluten free as we are gluten intolerant. We had salads and shared the risotto with short ribs. I had Caesar salad and my wife had the beet salad. Both were excellent - properly dressed without too little or too much - with fresh greens and wonderful beets. The short ribs, served without the bones, were fork tender and delicious and the risotto with fresh peas and asparagus was outstanding.

We shared raspberry and lemon sorbet for desert, as we were too full for the flourless molten chocolate cake. The raspberry was great although the lemon was a little too tart for my taste, and I love very tart lemon sorbet - but overall meal and experience was so good it still deserves 5 of 5.

Highly recommended- we have never been disappointed here and we are very picky.

This restaurant is consistently great. The food is delicious and the service outstanding. The “Bistro” can be noisy like a bustling restaurant but conversation is easy and it goes with the great Italian atmosphere.
