    Overall, a nice experience since the food was very good. Service was slow, it was 15 minutes from when one of us received his glass of wine and the rest of us got ours. Also, our table was next to the serving station, a little awkward getting up and down from the table. We would not sit there again.

    We were hoping our last visit before this one was a one off in regard to the level of service. Though this most recent experience was less bad than our visit before, the service still left a great deal to be desired. The octopus was really really off, mushy and gross. Each time we had to wait a long time to just to get water at the table. Wait times were long for food and drinks and we could hear the bussers loudly complaining the whole meal about their schedule conflicts and general dissatisfaction with their job at the wait station next to us. Probably won't be back for a while which is a bummer because we like the food.

    Food was amazing! We started with the fritti mari and meatballs. Both were delicious. Our dinner was spaghetti and clams and the handkerchief pesto pasta. The pesto was the best I’ve ever had. Crème brûlée was for dessert and it did not disappoint. We sat on the patio , great view of the grapevines and fountain. A must to try when you come to the Napa area

    David C.,our server, was the best! The service and food was exceptional. We would go back just for the Fritto Misto, the spaghetti and clams and the ‘top shelf’ butterscotch pudding. It’s our favorite restaurant when visiting from Boston.

    This is my second time here. We ordered the MANDILLI silk handkerchief pasta, I think it's better than the first time I had it. This dish is a MUST order. We were not offered any extra pepper or cheese on the pasta which was okay. We also ordered a tube pasta dish (forgot the name, it's not on today's menu) with mushrooms and a creamy sauce. I liked it but my other guest was more into the Mandilli so I ate most of this. We started the meal with CARPACCIO, it was more peppery than I expected and I LOVED yet. The meat was very lean and seemed aged or something which is great. For dessert we ordered, “BOSTINI” TRIFLE which was tasty but hard to share since it was in a very thin tall glass. Very pretty but not easy to share if you're not sharing with someone you're not dating. For wine, I ordered a glass of red from Monticello vineyards. It was good but not mind blowing. Service was great! I think this place might be the new replacement for Bouchon Bistro. Oh! I made reservations the day before and it didn't have the time I wanted so I called to make adjustments and then showed up 15 minutes early and they were still able to accommodate that. So THANK YOU! p.s Didn't order the VEAL PARMIGIANA this time but had it last time and it was VERY good!

    The food and ambiance is always nice. Surprised the prices are considerable higher than last year which is a sign of the times we are living in now. I can no longer afford to come here on a regular basis. We went there yesterday to celebrate Father's Day.
