Well, our dinner on Sat came out after a party of 8 sat down 20 mins after us and ordered after us... No big deal if our food comes out immediately after but watching them eat for 15 mins made it much worse. Lucky to get 2 stars for service in my opinion. Comping the one measly desert we had, then I'm not writing this review and I give 4 stars. Missed oppty to eh?

We all had pasta. The Torchio was not good. Tough. Tasteless unappealing. Linguini was good. Mixed salad was excellent. It’s very loud.

Wow. Julia Roberts said “I’m having a relationship with my pizza” in eat, pray, love and I never understood until I walked into Oenotri. Run! Do not walk to this place. Service and food are simple, fresh, but transformative.

My husband and I visited this past week and had a reservation for 6:45 p.m. on a Wednesday night. We had to wait until 7:00 p.m. to be seated while another couple who arrived after we did got seated first. My husband had the Gigli with Braised Short Rib pasta and while the pasta was fresh and hot, there was no discernable meat in the dish. I had the Pappardelle Pasta with Chanterelle Mushrooms and the pasta was barely warm with minimal mushrooms and no sauce at all which made it dry. Wouldn't go back unless someone invited us and paid. Food was just mediocre.

One of the best brunches in Napa! We love Oenotri for dinner and brunch did not disappoint! Damian is one of the best servers in Napa. He has an extensive knowledge of the wine list! Best pizza in town. We give this place a 💯

Had to ask for bread four times but food was great. Also got sat in a courtyard which was not a dedicated restaurant space so ambience was just okay.

It was my birthday dinner and first night in Napa. Gorgeous outdoor setting. We asked them to pick a wine for us and they did it perfectly. Dinner was amazing. Thank you!

We are Napa natives and took some out of town friends here for dinner as we had not been in a while and thought it might be nice to sit outside. The courtyard was really nothing special and felt a little strip-mallish. It was not packed but we had to flag down the waitress a couple times to order more drinks etc. I ordered the pesto pasta which was very good and fresh tasting. The rest of our party ordered the pasta with braised hen and it was just so-so. The chicken pieces were very tiny the sauce was average. You have to request bread if you want it. Overall, we didn’t feel it was a good example of the great restaurants we have in Napa and wish we had chosen elsewhere. On the plus side, it was quiet enough for us to have good conversation and we were able to enjoy the company.

We ate early due to our transcontinental flight. The pork ragu was cooked to perfection. My wife really enjoyed the fig pizza.
Wine list is extensive with lots of boutique wineries.

A must see in Napa! The menu changes slightly every night based on what's in season and what the chef has in mind. The service is always exceptional - the wait staff goes above and beyond to make your experience pleasant. We ordered a pizza, pasta, and a dessert - perfect amount of food for 2 people and everything was spectacular!

Service started out fast, but then really slowed down. Nice guy and very helpful, maybe a little too helpful. Food was not great, not terrible, just not the best.

We were lucky enough to be seated in the outdoor area, the indoors was very noisy, not at all conducive to conversation. The menu is short for an Italian restaurant and truly, the food just average. The cacao e pepe was dry and not very flavorful, the pasta with pesto also average. The lamb dish, while flavorful, was quite chewy. Not our favorite place

Oenotri is a popular locals food place. It has the best pasta a salads in town as well as an excellent Italian wine list, including several wines by thee glass. If you like spicy, add Calabrian chili to your pasta dish, you won't be disappointed. Great, friendly service and excellent sommeliers who are very knowledgeable of the various Italian regions and wines.

Oenotri is our favorite restaurant in Napa. Their food is exceptional and their unique desserts are amazingly delicious. Our experience has been nothing but excellent service and professionalism. We always ask for Damien as our server as he is an amazing person. I highly recommend Oenotri for a lively and fun place with great cocktails, exceptional flavors, amazing desserts and super friendly staff.

I would not come here for lunch again. Dinner is way better. The salads were super basic and didn’t even have croutons. I’ve had a better Cesar salad at Wendy’s. The hostess kept ignoring customers as they came in because she was on her phone or talking to one of the pizza chefs. We took friends here from out of town and it was a total let down.

We took our daughter and her boyfriend out to dinner for our daughter’s birthday and it was fabulous. The salami plate was a great starter. Everyone enjoyed their entrees, and desserts were so good too!! We will be back!!
