We arrived at 7:15 for an 8:15 reservation. We were told to go get a drink and they would call us if a table opened early. We came back at 8:15. Instead of seating us at the available table, they seated another group with a later reservation and only half of the group had arrived. When we complained to the hostess, she begrudgingly brought out the manager. Instead of diffusing the situation, the manager made the situation worse by being argumentative. After waiting 25 minutes past our reservation time we were seated. We were offered nothing meaningful for the inconvenience. Food was mediocre at best. Would not recommend this place to anyone.

The hen was good and the sides that’s accompanied it were great. The shrimp and linguini was salty with little other flavors going on. Our waiter was not very friendly and seemed uninterested in his job. He didn’t check on us enough. He forgot we had asked for bread so it came just before our meal (after we reminded him). Our appetizer and dessert were good. Overall though, a disappointing experience for the price, I’m sorry to say.

Oenotri is one of my favorites. The food is always great, as is the service. The only downside is the noise level, which was pretty high. That is normal these days, I know, but it makes it hard to have a conversation. The food was absolutely delicious though, and the apple crostini for dessert topped it all of fantastically.

Our party of six had a delicious dinner with great service, but the restaurant was so loud we couldn’t hear ourselves think, let alone try to have a conversation. Very disappointed. Lunch is also delicious here. Just don’t plan to converse much if you’re there in the evening.

I dine at Oenotri often. It is the complete package: creatively authentic food; knowledgeable, cohesive, warm staff; and great location. It is the first place I go when I return from Italy to hit the pizza and pasta reset buttons. Close your eyes and point at the menu. You will not be disappointed. The sommeliers are like white truffles on pasta, just the right touch. The mixologists are creative and tons of fun.

We have dined here several times, for dinner as well as brunch. I'm sorry we didn't review sooner, as this restaurant delivers great, imaginative food, wonderful service, all in a convenient location. Their Apps, Salumi and cheese plates, are outstanding, and we've frequented many fine dining establishments on a regular basis. Great variety and many items truly hand curated. Several rotating entrees' make for adventurous dining on every visit, as well as several regularly featured dishes. Deserts are home made as well, several rotating and always worth trying. Special recognition to our server, Damian, who we've had several times, is a consummate professional, and is a passionate and enthusiastic ambassador for the restaurant. Also kudos to his manager, who stepped in to lend a hand on an extremely busy night; she is truly hands on and very professional and personable as well. Well worth a visit!

I've been wanting to come here for a while, and it didn't disappoint! I took one of my best friend's for her birthday lunch (on a Sunday-I don't think they're open for lunch during the week). The waiter recommended the Margherita pizza (and added pancetta) and the lasagna. WOW! They were both so amazing. I normally wouldn't order pizza at a restaurant because I make really good homemade pizza, but the flavors and texture of their pizza were excellent. I also normally don't order lasagna in a restaurant because it's usually too heavy, but this was light and delicious! Our cocktails were excellent also. Highly recommend!

Our waitress was very busy when we first arrived, and the manager came over to answer questions and take our order, which we appreciated. The food was excellent. A nearly perfect meal and experience. My wife had the beet salad, and I had the mixed lettuces. Both were well done and generously portioned. We could have shared one. As entrees, we both had pasta, pappardelle and lumache. They were delicious, homemade, and filling. The wine list is carefully thought out, with unique Italian wines. The pairings they recommended were right on. Dessert was an apple crostata which was amazing.

The carbonara was over spiced, greasy instead of creamy, and nothing special, as well as a small portion. The giggling was quite tasty, reminiscent of osso bucco, but again a modest serving.

The layout and decor are nothing special, the service was multiperson so no sense of continuity.

For all that, the price was no value.

My husband and I went here for our anniversary dinner and loved the atmosphere. My husbands meal (pasta) was excellent, and the kitchen gave us a complimentary order of shishido peppers which were amazing. I find this restaurant (and many in Napa) lacking on the gluten free and dairy free options so if you have these allergies it may be harder for you to find something that works for you.
