We love Oenotri. It's my favorite restaurant in Napa. I rated the service a 3. Our waiter was on point. The kitchen got backed up. What could've been a hour dinner ended up being 2 1/2 hours. We had a 3-year old with us who made it through fine but you never know... Good food, overall good service except for the ridiculously long wait even to order. Normally I'd rate the service a 5.

We have been here a dozen times and each time it is outstanding. We love the pork ragu so we were a bit disappointed when it wasn’t on the menu the week before our visit, (I called when it wasn’t on the website menu). I was told the menu changes all the time but the ragu has always been on. We actually had backup reservations someplace else in case it wasn’t on the menu but thankfully it was! We also had the Meyer lemon pesto and a duck dish, all outstanding as usual. And the desserts, Fabulous❣️Very dog friendly on front patio so make sure to request it if you have a dog. Back patio doesn’t allow dogs🐶. Not sure why.

I have loved Oenotri from the beginning. We have eaten there many times. Granted, Tyler (the owner) was not at the restaurant this night. Daniel, our favorite sommelier, was absent as well.
When we arrived shortly before our 8 pm reservation, the hostess greeted us curtly and then proceeded to spend several minutes poring over the seating map on the computer, discussing the situation with another cohort, and telling two other groups of diners that they had no tables available to people without reservations, despite the fact that there were several open tables in the dining room. Ten minutes after 8, we were seated. The other open tables remained empty throughout the night. The new sommelier opened our wine, but then never returned to assess our satisfaction. The waitress took our order and after about fifteen minutes brought our salad to share. Then we waited for an hour for our entrees, despite the fact that the restaurant wasn't full. My daughter's pasta dish was undercooked, not even close to al dente. My cacio e pepe was barely passable, especially since Ciccio in Yountville makes this dish sublimely. When we informed the server of the undercooked pasta, she did offer to have it remade, but we had already waited an hour! We were surprised there was no offer to adjust the bill, or a free dessert or some such. I'm very sorry, but I won't be returning any time soon.

Just find a different place to eat. The only reason to visit is to enjoy the front of the house staff, all of whom are cordial and highly functioning. The interior is dim and uncomfortable. It's deafeningly loud, conversation is nigh impossible. While it is difficult to ruin hand made pizza or pasta, this team has mastered the process. There are dozens of better spots downtown.

Oenotri is my favorite Italian spot in Napa... are there is incredible Italian food in Napa. Their homemade pizza and pasta will have you licking your plate. I love that their menu changes based on the season. Expansive wine list. The Som is incredible at recommending wine. Excellent service. Above and beyond. Modern and trendy atmosphere. Easily one of the best restaurants in Napa.

The food at Oentori is always incredible. Unfortunately, this time our service was subpar at best. Waitress was rude and looking to turn our table. Delicious pizza, particularly the Panna - not to be missed! Come for the food, leave when the service is not great.

Was concerned about the food after reading some of the reviews. We found all of the dishes excellent and salted just right. The pizza crust was great, thin and tasty, as were the sauce and cheeses. Our pasta was wonderful as was the mixed green salad and polenta with Parmesan Reggiano. Friendly and attentive service even as the restaurant filled and got busy!

Oenotri is one of my favorite restaurants in the downtown core. Has consistent great food across the entire menu every time we have been which is about every other month. This time we ordered a basic butter parmesan pasta for my 2 year old daughter that we loved and should be a regular menu item (They made it off menu to take care of my daughter). We started with a little gem salad with tangerines and a pistachio dressing. I don't really know if this was great as my daughter stole all the tangerines so I didn't really get to see the full flavor profile here. Then we ordered the Pappardelle with mushrooms and a Pork Ragu. Every item was incredible and would totally have again, except the fact that I love ordering something different every time.

The setting is a great modern decor that is fun and energetic. The service was on point again. It's not the cheapest restaurant by any means, but it is one of the best reasonable restaurants in Napa with food equal to or better than some of the famous Michelin rated restaurants in the valley.

Enjoy as I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Was traveling in Napa for the weekend and made an effort to stop here after learning it’s on 2018 Top 100 of Bay Area. Best pizza crust I’ve ever had ... period. The pizza was outstanding compared even to what I’ve had in Italy. The pasta was not as memorable, but they take the pie for their pizza. Love.

Oenotri meets or exceeds my expectations each time I dine there. We were overwhelmed by the number of delicious choices on the menu and therefore, asked lots of questions. Our server Hillary was incredibly knowledgeable and had an explanation/answer for everything. She missed her calling as a writer because we got hungry just listening to her description of the food and wine choices. As expected, the food was perfectly prepared and delicious. Bravo. Can't wait to return to Oenotri.

In town for Jazz Festival, Oenotri was recommended for its fresh Italian fare. Didn’t disappoint, however dishes were bland in flavor. From the moment we walked in EVERYONE we encountered delivered 5-star service — starting with Jessica the hostess, the bartenders, and Damien our server who was extremely knowledgeable and helped us with our dinner selections like a boss!! Would dine at Oenotri again, just would be sure to ask for a flavor boost!!

This was our second time at Oenotri, and it was once again excellent! I had high expectations coming in, but when we were seated close to the bar and next to another group who was talking loudly, I got a little worried because I thought the noise would become a nuisance. All of that worry disappeared when the waiter came over and we started talking about the food. The waiter was charming and passionate, and his recommendations were spot-on. Everyone & everything else in the restaurant faded into the background as we became immersed in our own dining experience. All of our dishes were wonderful, but we highly recommend the Beef Carpaccio (light & refreshing, best we've ever had!) and the Bistecca Pizzaiola (intensely flavored and tender). We can't wait to go back, and only wish we didn't live an hour away!

Have been here twice and had wonderful service both times; the menu rotates so can be difficult to find an entrée that fits your tastes. The atmosphere is great. Pizza is good and affordable. The lemon vinaigrette salad is great. Only other concern is a very pricey wine list. Jumps very quickly from by the glass to $90-100 per bottle and up.

Service was very good, the somm excellent... our pizza delicious and arrived steaming fresh from the wood burning oven, but the pie took 30 min to make the table.

My only serious critical comment... we ordered different 3 pastas for the table to share. One was outstanding, the other good, but the 3rd, mussels with linguine, was thrown together terribly. Seems like they had run out of mussels, so without saying anything to our table, the kitchen threw in some clams. That would have been ok, but everything else in the presentation was off. The shellfish were overcooked, a massive clump of garlic was in the mix, there was next to no liquid, no sauce, the seasoning was off, and most certainly no acid. I love mussels, and our table was looking forward to the dish. Guess that's what we get for being a late reservation.
