Perhaps my palette is t as refined as others but the food was just OK. This is a Michelin star restaurant so maybe my expectations were too high. My husband likened our pasta to hamburger helper and the sauce was a little too salty. The pizza was good, the crust in particular, but I’ve had better authentic Italian pizza elsewhere. Service was great though.

Cold and wet outside... warm (thank you pizza oven) and welcoming inside! Great service matches the incredible salumi and cheese plate. Add a glass of wine and you have a go to choice.

Outstanding as always.

The staff really go out of their way to give you the best experience. The host was so nice and when I requested a special table, she made it happen.

From the somm picking a superb wine to the homemade pasta that tastes like Tuscany, you can’t find a better Italian dinner experience anywhere in the bay area.

This place is one of the best southern Italian food I have tasted. Perfect amount of items listed on the menu; not complicated and simple yet enough variety to choose from. Food came flying out and was timed perfectly by our server. Saffron linguine with white wine and cod as well as the pork ragu pasta was cooked perfectly. The portion was just right to squeeze in a pizza, beautiful chaucerterie board, and dessert. I will be back when in Napa.

We had dinner here on a Sunday night after wine tasting, definitely advise making reservations. Place was a little loud, made it heard to hear the server sometimes. Our server was excellent, helpful, energetic, attentive. Salumi plate had some tasty choices, pasta dishes were good but salty. Dessert was good, cocktails were very good. Seemed a little overpriced for the entree amount.

We have been dining at Oenotri since they opened. Always a good dining experience until our last dinner on December 27, 2018.

The mixed salad was overdressed, that’s a first. The mushroom pasta dish was nice then it fell apart with our entrees. The time between mid course and entrees was too long. We ordered the tuna entree and braised veal. Just terrible. Both cold and sloppy, the tuna with lentils should have been described as “lentils with a small side of over cooked tuna”. The braised veal can only be described as a fatty slab of cold veal with a giant portion of cold polenta. The prices for these entrees were well over 30.00 each. Such a disappointment. I suggest staying safe and avoid their entrees and order apps/pasta/pizza/cheese,etc.

Food was unbelievably good. Quality of ingredients was fantastic. Olive oil and focaccia to start which were both elevated versions. Margherita pizza with the best tomato sauce I’ve ever had. Papardelle and mushrooms to die over. Amazing dessert we managed to squeeze in. Really lovely service. Definitely going back next time we’re in town.

Was expecting a bit more from the food based on the restaurant's reputation. Charcuterie was good, as were the arancini. Brussels sprout salad was not a hit, too much balsamic, and the pungent cheese didn't complement the other flavors. Really liked the crust and sauce on the pizza, would have liked a bit more cheese. Short rib pasta tasted fine, but the ragu was gelatinous and lacked any shreds of meat. Desserts were really disappointing, panna cotta was ok, but topped with what tasted like corn flakes. Chocolate olive oil cake was too dry to eat, took two bites and left the rest.

Service was excellent. Our server was super helpful on ordering and paced everything perfectly. Sommelier was also on point, great wine knowledge and always there to refill glasses.

Wow! We loved this restaurant. I had been there in the past, but it has been several years. They haven't missed a beat. The food was outstanding. The portions were generous but not indulgent. The food was fresh, and the flavors were amazing. We loved every bite. Service was excellent as well, such nice people. Enjoy!

The waiter was extremely knowledgeable and knew exactly how to accommodate a gluten free diet. When the non-gluten-free diner was given a gluten free pasta by mistake the error was quickly and graciously corrected. This meal was brunch but we are already making plans to go back for dinner.

Food was excellent, but our experience was marred by indifferent and inattentive service. Our greeter seemed to be inconvenienced by our arrival even though we had a reservation. Our server was impatient during ordering and then never returned to check on us until dessert. As a party of six, we were charged an automatic gratuity, which might explain why no effort was made to assure a pleasant experience. This was a significant birthday celebration, which we mentioned, and ended up as a disappointment. The kitchen staff obviously cares a great deal, but no one else here does.
