Bistro Don Giovanni -- Napa
Dinner: Sunday - Thursday: 5:00pm - 10:00pm, Friday - Saturday: 5:00pm - 10:30pm
Excellent as always! Ravioli with lemon cream sauce and seared salmon, amazing!
Visiting from Boston and found the whole experience very enjoyable.
Didn’t really see the hype about this place. I felt like because we didn’t buy a bottle or wine, appetizers, or dessert we weren’t considered a priority. The menu is extremely limited so if you’re picky make sure you look it over before you go. The busser that was working that night was extremely nice and very much on top of his duties.
I'm fortunate to be able to travel to Napa about once a year and always-always eat at Don Giovanni. They have a great menu with plenty of options for every taste, a terrific wine list and service that's hard to beat.
Great all round. Always dependable. Great service
Amazing food and service was great! The patio is an excellent way to enjoy your lunch or brunch.
It’s always a delight to enjoy the food and ambiance at Don Giovanni. I would go for the frito misty alone. It has become our go-to restaurant when family comes to visit.
Truly outstanding. Get a seat on the patio if the weather is good. The food and service are top notch.
Always delicious! Salad, pasta,fish,steak etc. consistently great! Dessert too!
Not autism friendly and kid friendly place. We are Asian Americans and we were looked down upon. My son who has autism didn't have a pleasant time. We were not noisy or even rowdy, my kids are well mannered and disciplined. We have to literary stand up for the servers to wait on us. Not a good experience. It's a shame, we are a local resident and we were treated that way.
This was our 2 nd visit and it did not disappoint. Had the penne pasta which is made fresh there everyday and we could see the Chef making it in the kitchen. My husband had the pork chop which was cooked perfect and served hot. We will be back on our next visit to Napa.
Excellent meal and service overall. Felt a bit rushed as there was no separation of time between courses but our server was friendly and efficient. The bruschetta starter special was super fresh and absolutely delicious. I had the Mandilli pesto pasta dish which I would order again in a heartbeat. Where many pasta entrees can be heavy and filling, this one was light and luscious! #athomeandbeyond
Best Italian food in California! Superior service and wonderful ambience.
Dinner was pleasant and service was good. But the $20 Corking Fee waz ridiculous!
This was one of the best meals i’ve had in a while and not outrageously pricey. The bartender made our cocktails to order.
We have a family tradition of celebrating birthdays at Bistro Don Giovanni, and last night was my husband’s turn. From the minute we arrived we were transported to a happy place. The employees were all very friendly and attentive. The menu had a variety of choices that pleased everyone in our group. Everything was delicious, including the cocktails. Thank you, Giovanni, for another magical night!
Food and service was great.
The restaurant was recommended to us. Everything we had for lunch was excellent.
This place is our go-to as we are locals and love the food and atmosphere. Never have we been disappointed! Everything on the menu is delightful
The host went out of his way to get a beautiful rose from their garden for our table to help commemorate my husband’s birthday (he passed away 4 years ago)—such a lovely gesture! And, as always , the service was wonderful and fun. The strawberry shortcake was to die for!
Pasta dishes were good but lacked any wow factor. The sorbet was the surprise of the night and was bursting with flavor. Service was excellent. Would go again if wanting Italian.
Food was amazing, i had the gluten free pasta and enjoyed my meal.
My new favorite. Nothing pretentious, but really great spot and great food. Service couldn't have been better. Warm evening out door dining in the vineyards. Great wine and food - what could be better?
This was my second time at this restaurant. It doesn't disappoint! Had the Lemon Ravioli and the Tri Colore Salad. We enjoyed the outside dining deck.
My favorite Napa restaurant. Best home made pasta. The Mandilli is always a favorite. Best fritto misto outside of my friend's restaurant in Italy. MC
One of the best in the North Bay. Always great food and service.
Love this restaurant!
Lots of fun, and great food. We have eaten here for years and always enjoy ourselves. We shared a watermelon appetizer and had two pasta dishes one with clams and a “thumper cacciatore”....yum! Got an extra to take home. Yummy
Everyone was so nice, even with a late seating, right before closing! Great outdoor seating! The food was amazing, I’m still thinking about my Caesar salad!!
My friend had the sole and I had the fig pizza. They were both excellent.
Wonderful spot with locals and visitors alike! Almost like being in Italy 😊
Great food and ambiance. Our only complaint is that there is always a black truck that sits out front with a large Infowars decal on it. You know the people that claim that the Sandyhook slaughter of those little kids was a hoax. If I were the owner I’d tell that employee to take it off or park that truck at the far end of the parking lot. My wife is about to call for a boycott.
Bistro Don Giovanni is consistently very good to excellent. We always recommend the restaurant to friends and newbies.
Always consistently exquisite food and service! We frequently treat out of town guests to lunch or dinner here.
We've been to BDG many times and it has been consistently outstanding. The food is delicious -- every thing we've ever had there -- and it all seems very fresh. We've never had a bad dish there. The wait staff are friendly and responsive and the grounds are beautifully kept, making patio dining a visual pleasure as well as a culinary one.
Don Giovanni’s never disappoints , always delicious and great staff!
First got seated at the only available table outside, but there was too much customer and wait staff traffic, so opted to sit indoors at a booth. Table inside vibrated.. don't know why. If you didn't put your hands on it you wouldn't notice. Dinner was delicious , waiter was attentive, wine selection for glass or half bottle was "ok", butterscotch pudding was a beautiful martini glass presentation, but neither my date nor I could taste any butterscotch, which was a $22 disappointment.
What a wonderful find. The outside dining area was delightful. The food was fresh and delicious. The service was fantastic
Well below par
Our experience Labor Day evening did not match the high ratings on trip advisor.
The restaurant was very busy and our waiter was fairly abrupt and tried to rush us.
We had not been asked what we would like to drink and he was trying to take our food order.
Then our food arrived before our drinks.
The pasta - lamb ragu was just ok , the pork chop over cooked .
Not impressed so skipped dessert, too many better places to dine .
We love Bistro Don Giovani and have dined there many times over the years. When we visited recently for a late lunch we were disappointed at the service we received. Our pizza took a long time to arrive and our waiter did not stop by to let us know it was delayed (we finally asked). We were not in a rush but noted the tables around us were receiving attentive service, in particular, the guests who could converse with the waiter and host in Italian. We have not experienced lapses in service like this previously at Don Giovani and will go back but thought it was important for the restaurant to know as it did impact the experience and, frankly, over shadowed the food which was good as always.
