Some of the best food in the Napa Valley! Great service too! The only problem is deciding what to order ….
The pesto pasta was very good.
Sitting outside was nice.
My wife’s birthday, and we had a great time.
We had a late lunch out on the patio and couldn’t have had a better experience. Even though it was somewhat warm, there was a lovely breeze blowing. The tables were spaced out, so we had plenty of space and privacy, and the food was delicious, as usual. The caprese salad was amazing as were our entrees, drinks, and desserts. Our server was great and we left happy and with full bellies. We will definitely return.
Every time we've come to the Valley for the last 2 decades we've come here. It's like eating at home. Italian comfort food with flair! Abbondanza!
A suburb girls lunch after wine tasting at Antica. We enjoyed a charcuterie plate at the tasting but we each had the perfect lunch.
As always, a great dining experience Sat outdoors, had octopus, beet salad and risotto special.
Lovely outdoor dining. Delicious food. Great staff!
Our waiter was very efficient. The food was great but we would like it to be a bit hotter when served. This is a great Italian restaurant. Try the Tiramisu!
Beautiful outdoor setting to eat, drink, and be merry with good service and good food.
Basic Italian food. Nothing special.
Just fabulous. Beautiful setting, great food, quick service. Lovely time. Highly recommend.
Always an amazing time and the food is great!!! Our server was attentive and made sure to check in as we enjoyed our time in the garden.
One of my favorite restaurants. The butterscotch pudding is a must!!
Food was very average. Service very slow and in fact the servers seem to care less.
Lack of vegetarian options (besides pizza and salad)
Bread arrived at out table after 30+ minutes and it was cold (according to the manager, it’s served cold)
Capuchino was warm (not fresh)
Service did not match a 3 “$$$” restaurant
When asked about vegetarian options, the waiter kept pushing salad, even though I had already set the expectation I didn’t want salad.
Food arrived late and cold.
We decided to leave without eating the dinner and spoke to management on the way out. Of course, after being charged for a capuchino and a side soup on our way out.
Post COVID, best outdoor dining, food and ambiance in Napa.
Great patio. Nice food. They've doubled their capacity so service is pleasant but a little slow. Highly recommend though.
Gus was great! Food exceptional! Best in the Napa Valley!
We had a wonderful lunch. Food was fantastic and service was awesome
Don Gio’s is our go-to and has been for many years but the pastas today were flaccid and the risotto broken. Very disappointing. I suspect they are suffering from nearly doubling their dining capacity with the lo Amy outdoor tables without increasing the size of their kitchen.
Always a meal to remember. Truly relaxing and warm environment in which to enjoy delicious season Italian food. Love you, Don Giovanni!
Ambience outdoors was great with plenty of shade. Food tasted as if I was in Italy. Will be returning!
Every dish was an explosion of flavor and finesse. NA fun day to celebrate a birthday and we couldn’t ask for better service.
This is my fav restaurant in the valley. Love the food and the service. The way they have created the outdoor space - shaded by the vines is stellar!!
Excellent food preparation and taste.
The ambience of the restaurant was beautiful.
Service was fair!
My wife’s birthday celebration. Bethany was great.
Outside seating enhanced the great food. Service was exceptional.
Great service and food. We just got the worst table on the outside with the view of the highway. I wish they would have put up hedges or another barrier to avoid the eye sore. Great experience overall.
Had a fabulous early dinner for BIRTHDAY!!
We were in the Garden with a great table- had Don Giovanni open a bottle of Kenwood Winery Chardonnay which we had just purchased earlier in the day. Had a wonderful visit in Kenwood and the staff were envious because we were headed to Don Giovanni. It is also a favorite with them.
Best and favorite restaurant in the Napa Valley for years. Giovanni and staff from first hello to dessert exceed expectations in all categories. We can’t wait to plan our next reservation…..the quintessential place to dine and have fun at the same time.
We've been customers of Bistro Don Giovanni for years. They've expanded their outdoor patio into a lovely space for dining. We recently went for my sister's birthday as a special treat. The prices are pretty high, but it was a wonderful dining experience
This place is beautiful. Service is great. Food is good but not worthy of 5 stars.
Amazing dinner, everything was perfection. The service and ambiance added to a truly magical evening. Each dish was amazing...don't forget the Meatball and Soft Polenta appetizer and leave room for their amazing desserts. I want to return to Napa just to be able to dine again at Bistro Don Giovanni!
Food excellent but service not good. Felt everyone was rushed so not a relaxed atmosphere. Male server insisted calling me “young lady” and “senorita” despite my correcting him (I’m in my mid-50’s)
We went to dinner for my sons birthday. We ate indoors and the flies were relentless. For the cost we shouldn’t have had to deal with this. Also, the service seemed a bit slow and when our meals did arrive, they weren’t as hot as we would have liked. Did they sit in the warmer too long without being brought to our table?
Love this place....excellent food and ambiance. Feels like a trip to Italy.
We’ve been wanting to try this place for a while and am glad we came! Everything was delicious and we really enjoyed sitting outside since the weather was perfect!
We had a memorable time. Met Mr. Giovanni, he shared a touching story with us regarding his wife. The staff was very helpful with recommendations and filling our request for food and tee shirts to remember our special evening.
We are still talking about the food.
Will be a must visit each time we revisit Napa.
Late Sunday reservation, wait staff seemed tired and didn’t really roll out the red carpet…. Slow service, distracted, not unfriendly but not too friendly either…. Seemed like they were done with it…. Will try again, and hopefully there will be a different energy from the staff. Setting is great, food was quite good…
