Delicious authentic Italian pasta, pizza and much more...most of all kind, prepared and professional service.buonissimo!!
Excellent food and atmosphere !!
Wonderful service by Jackie.
This is the second time we have had a waiter that never returned to the table for refills or a second cup of coffee. The special tuna salad looked like can tuna the veal scalappini was 3 paper thin 3 inch pieces of meat with 2tablespoon of mashed vegetable hash. Not worth the high price. Leave in the area and would not return to eat again. Might drop by for a drink on the porch only.
Fantastic food and great service! I’ll be back many times.
Terrific vibe, good food, friendly and warm greeting every time. A favorite in wine country.
To start, we had the tricolore salad and minestrone Genovese. For the entree, we had the seared salmon and spaghetti bolognese. We also sampled the braised short ribs from the risotto special. Overall, an amazing dinner!
Great waiter Kevin and his brand new employee truly amazing! Food was just enough and made to perfection!
Our favorite restaurant during our visit to Napa. Loved the waitstaff. Gnocchi with bolognese was best I’ve ever had. Chicken Diavolo excellent. Shrimp risotto to die for. Great espresso. Ambiance sweet. Made us want to move to Napa so we could dine here on a regular basis.
Took my wife here for her birthday and we loved it! Food was great and service was on point.
Wonderful place to revisit again and again. Excellent food and service! The halibut was perfectly done. We loved sitting on the patio, though highway noise was audible. Tables are pretty close together so you can hear conversation at the next table.
We ordered a bottle of SB wine that was $38 and the waiter brought a Chardonnay that we discovered when the bill came was $72. Our bad for not checking more carefully so we paid the price. (YIKES!) This is an expensive restaurant, but worth the treat once in awhile. We were gifted for part of the tab as a wedding present, so made it possible for us to afford it.
Is there any better place for business lunch, Sunday supper with family and birthdays? It’s rare to find a restaurant that is perfect for all of these occasions. But I guess that’s why locals love ‘Donny G’s’
Everything was amazing! The food, the wine and the service - top notch all the way. Highly recommend!
I HAVE TO SAY THIS!
It was Mother’s Day! Was my second time in this Restaurant, one of the things most impacted me was “The staff service, I mean from the host to the who ever is in the back cleaning dishes! The attention to us and to everyone was impeccable!!! Because I was observing all! I been in to many restaurants in my life! This place is beautiful atmosphere and the food delicious!
GREAT JOB TO THE ONE IN CHARGE OF HIRING THE STAFF! Good eye for choosing the best!
Why I say this?
A lot of restaurants loose clients because the service is horrible! And of course the food is a big part as well!
We went for our annual Mother's Day lunch and had a fantastic time. Great food, amazing staff, gorgeous atmosphere. Always excited to go back again and again.
Best fritto misto and carpaccio in the Bay Area. Food is always tasty, and the service is always excellent.
Great food beautiful atomosphere with superior service at reasonable prices by California standards. A must go!
The score would have been higher if not for the crab special. It was good but way way too small had to spend more money and order an additional item.
Great suggestions from waiter.. everything wonderful !
Delicious as always! This is my favorite restaurant in Napa. We save it for a special treat. I get the ravioli with lemon sauce. This is not something I normally eat and wouldn’t order it except at BDG! My husband got the chicken and said it was delicious.
But the top of the meal was the butterscotch pudding that I had to order to go because I was so full! Again, not something I would order anywhere else but here!
Calamari is also special with the sauce they use and the added tarragon! Just wonderful!
Service was very good.
Hostess and waiter recognized we booked as a special occasion.
Food was excellent, service was very good.
No complaints, we will definately go back
Excellent food and service! Excited to come back!
Delightful evening walking through the grounds and sitting by the water feature with drinks prior to dinner on the patio. Food was very good and the atmosphere was exceptional. Would highly recommend this location and actually did to some other guests at the hotel who asked where we had dinner.
I never visit Napa without eating at Bistro Don Giovanni. Fab!!!
Enjoyed the deck seating on a beautiful Napa evening.
The Octopus Salad & the Creme Brulee were outstanding.
Highly Recommend Bistro Don Giovanni! perfetto!
reservations make a difference. seated immediately, very busy place, not much room to enjoy, but wine list was perfect, not huge, but really good local wines at decent prices. food was great, do not be afraid to suggest a few additions or subtractions from menu, they seem ready to please. fired olives, off menu, but awesome!
This is our most favorite restaurant in Napa!!! Always will be!!
Wonderful lunch outside on the patio. It was a perfect day. The good food and great service only made it better.
The service was amazing but the food was extremely bland. It’s a cute atmosphere and the wait staff was extremely tentative but the food was poor quality.
Perfect complement to an afternoon spent wine tasting. The ambiance is a nice balance of relaxing and energetic, the food was on par with our high expectations. We'll be back
Have been there several times ~~ always wonderful service, ambiance and food.
We’ve been coming to Bistro Don Giovanni for years, as it always has a warm, welcoming ambiance and very consistently good Italian food. This visit was no exception. The prices seemed to have climbed over the years and now, perhaps, are bordering on being a tad high for casual Italian dining, but again, the food quality is excellent. (FYI: Our dinner for four (all four diners ordered pasta), with one corkage and only a single additional glass of wine, and only one dessert, came to $222 before tip.) All dishes were exactly as described on the menu and as perfectly prepared and as delicious as ever. The consistency of this restaurant is notable. Service was excellent. Noise level was quite high when we arrived, but dropped considerably as tables vacated. The restaurant has excellent al fresco dining as well, though we didn’t do that on this occasion.
Our new fav! ravioli with lemon sauce and the bolognese were amazing
This was our first time here and we had a great experience. Everyone made our friend's birthday special and the food was amazing.
Always a standout
Bistro Don Giovanni does not disappoint. We love the restaurant.
What a pleasant evening. Great food and service. Also is dog friendly on the patio which made it all the more enjoyable since we were traveling with our pup. Loved the grilled octopus and the branzino. The service was spot on - very attentive but invisible.
Our favorite place to dine
The food selection looks delicious. I wish that I had a bigger appetite or could visit more regularly to try everything.
Never disappointed when dining at this amazing place-year after year, Giovanni and his staff maintain the high standards he and his lovely late wife Donna established. It is like a well-oiled machine and the food is of the highest quality.
