Food was awesome...annoyed that our food did not come fast...atleast not like the couple next to us who arrived 15 min after us. Got appetizers and food and left while we had just received our appetizer. We weren't in a rush so I guess it was ok

Tiny entrees for the price, especially the short rib. $24 pastas without any of them even having a protein. O

When we arrived, the restaurant had only 2 people at the bar, yet we were placed in the middle of the restaurant instead of a booth. I have a huge issue when the first words from our server were “I see you brought wine, I will see if it is on our list” we don’t open wines that are on our list. I have a huge issue since restaurants change their wine lists often. So you have to call and have someone look at the wine list ahead of time. They also charge $25 for corkage, a bit high for the caliber of establishment. Our pizza had so much sauce you couldn’t even pick it up. Pasta was good and a decent amount. Pizza price high for cheese and sausage considering it was all sauce. This place needs to try a little harder, every table brought wine and they were all shaking their head at the policy. Take your $25 and call it a win!

Mother-daughter date night. My daughter was visiting from out of town and Oenotri was her first choice (mine too!). Honestly, we love everything about Oenotri! The service is excellent, quality of the food is outstanding, extensive wine list, fabulous cocktails. The pasta and pizza is the BEST in town!

Delicious homemade pasta - wow. Apparently there is amazing bread, but we didn't get any. Every dish I had was delicious. The place was a little loud, but I like it lively so that's OK. A bit pricey as well but the food was great and I'll be back for sure.

The pasta was delicious. They forgot to bring our table bread after we requested it but that was forgivable. Charcuterie was also good but could have included some milder cheeses for our table’s taste. Overall it was my favorite meal in Napa

We thought we would take a chance and try this place for brunch and I was quite pleased with my Belgian waffle. My husband had the crab benedict and he is VERYYYYY picky. I couldn't believe my ears when he said it was really good the first bite in. He did say it was a little salty, but I think he's overly sensitive to any salt. We also had a side of bacon which had a wonderful flavor, very different from just any old bacon.

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.

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.
