Very disappointing, embarrassingly awful experience - how far this restaurant has fallen. Polenta served in iron skillet contaminated with rancid corn oil (restaurant’s ambient odor similar, like a neglected diner). Pasta desperately over-salted from excessive re-use of salted pasta water. Pork ragu gooey and messy, tasted like supermarket canned goods. Appears that no one tastes this food after cooking - absolutely no quality control. Manager defensive and dismissive of feedback. Despite all, server was very kind and understanding.

The food was and service was excellent. We had fennel salad, pizza margherita, pasta, gelato and coffee. The wine list is very good. I would go again any time. Was visiting from San Jose so unfortunately can’t return so often. We just scratched the surface of the menu but I would say if you crave Southern Italian cuisine or Neapolitan style pizza, you must try Oenotri.

Great experience. We started with a margarita pizza to share for he table, which was awesome. Not to filling and definitely the perfect appetizer for a party of 4. We couldn’t say enough about the great service. The waitress and hostess were both very attentive and also accommodating with our 5 month old. We will return when we are back in Napa next year!

Perhaps there was something going on that night, or maybe that was the plan all along, but we had 6 different servers for our meal - from drinks, to bread, to entrée, to asking for more bread and where our entrees were. It seemed harried, unorganized, crazed and a total clusterf*&$#!. While the food was delicious and the drinks terrific, not sure I can stand the wait. And yet, all of the servers (which also included the hosts pulling double duty), seemed to mill about as if there was no manager - or the inmates were running the asylum. The pizza is a terrific start and the carbonara a specialty (which changes daily).

Great food and wine list. Super loud and noisey inside. Luckily they were able to seat us outside or we would have left. It was good weather so we were comfortable outside. Service was excellent. But if you are looking for a place where you can hear yourself talk, I wouldn't recommend it.

Waiter diid not know the menu well. He could not make any recommendations. His lack of training, knowledge or overall desire is a due-service to the restaurant, as it diminished our overall experience. He did not up sell; less the check! Bigger checks means bigger tip!

Amazing food, we had a great waiter who at times bordered between pushy and just confident. That being said, his recommendations were flawless and our meal was outstanding. You'll want to order everything on the menu, which is tough with only two people. Helped us with exactly the right combination.

Service was ridiculously slow, inefficient and at times non-existent. Our appetizer platessss remained empty on our table, crowding our table until the meals were completely finished and the check was rendered. The waiter was full of himself, oversold his knowledge of the menu and under delivered. The Som was a joke. We knew more than he did, all he had to say was ‘good choice’. Locals mustn’t know any better,but they deserve much better.

Second time here and it was even better than we remembered. The salads are amazing. Perfectly dressed with fresh from the garden lettuce and the best vinegarette I've ever tasted! Must order pasta! So good! Our favorite is the pork raging but honestly we loved them all! Service was excellent. Great affordable wine recommendation from server. Make reservations well in advance. Books up quickly.

Cons:
- Cavatappi was too salty.
- The pesto pasta needed some type of protein which we asked for but were told that it was not possible. It could have used a lot more pesto as well.
- Italian Greyhound would have been better had they used freshly squeezed grapefruit juice.

Pros:
- Our waiter was polite and attentive.
- I appreciated the complimentary cookies that were brought out for my birthday. The cookies were really good.
- The fried squash appetizers were a favorite at the table.

Excellent food in a very appealing space. The pizza and pastas were truly delicious. Our server had too many tables. Only other significant negative was noise level. Very noisy with poor acoustics - made worse by overly wide tables so very far from other person. Despite that, great food.

A delicious and authentic italian dinner, the food at Oenotri was cooked to perfection, featured interesting and eclectic regional Italian specialties, an extensive wine list, including a comprehensive selection of Italian wines organized by region and varietal, and excellent service. Fine food without the fuss, Oenotri is one of the best restaurants in Napa City and should not be missed.

This was our first time back to Oenotri since they opened about 5 years ago and they did not disappoint! They had King Salmon on the menu, which has been hard to find and pricey this season - the chef prepared it perfectly and it was a real treat to the two people in our party. The table we had was right by the open kitchen and serving area, which can be a little bit noisy - you just have to filter it out and concentrate on the conversation going on at your table! The only comment I can make is after the waiter opened and poured both bottles of our wine that we brought in, he did not do any refilling, leaving it for us to do. Minor service point, but at $25 per bottle corkage, I expect more. Overall, great food and experience!

The ambiance was energetic with a very nice bar. The service was spectacular. Homemade pasta with locally sourced ingredients make for fantastic flavors. The wine list is excellent and the also have great cocktails. The prices are very reasonable. It's a great place and one I will return to.

This was my third time coming back to Oenotri after a few years and it’s safe to say that’s its not the gem it once was. The menu had no depth and the food was lacking. I ordered a pizza, pasta, and appetizer and all three lacked flavor. Not only did they not have salt and pepper on the table, which they badly needed, but I was going to ask my waiter for some but he didn’t come back until my entire meal was finished. Even more surreal, others in the restaurant were complaining about how expensive it was despite being bland.
