We were there when the restaurant first opened - actually the soft opening. It was one day before it got its beer and wine license, so no wine with dinner, and no cream for the coffee! But the food was delicious.
Fast-forward to closing night. A couple of owners later, the addition of a great bar and music every night. But the food still the best Italian meals in town.
That, and the service, the music, the neighborhood feel ..... you will be enormously missed.

Our dining experience was VERY substandard in all aspects except for our service. Our server was trying hard to make our experience positive; however, the food (everything we ordered) was less than acceptable. The cost per person did not match the quality of our experience. With all of this being said, I do not think it matters because this restaurant is no longer in business. The evening we were there was the last night UVA was open for business. Maybe that is a blessing. My past experiences at UVA have all been positive. It makes it difficult for me to be writing such a negative review but it expresses my true feelings. Also, I found my choice in restaurants to be very embarrassing because I was treating friends to a dinner out.

My mom planned a girls trip in Napa and my girlfriend recommended UVA Trattoria for dinner along with a couple other places. We chose this place because they had live music which we all love!!! Our experience was AMAZING from the very beginning. We didn't realize when booking a table that they had 2 dinning rooms, one with live music and the other was a more intimate experience. Because of how busy they where and the fact that we didn't specify, they reserved a table for us on the quiet side. We asked if we could change it and get seated on the side with music. They responded very kindly and got us seated very quickly even though it was packed!! On top of all that they gave us a complimentary appetizer for our patience. The waiter was super nice and the food was mouth watering!! Over all we loved this place and it will now be at the top of all of our lists of places to recommend to people who are visiting the area. AND of course we will be back the next time in Napa.

The menu was creative and well executed. Our table was available on time. The service was friendly and helpful and not intrusive. A big plus is that you can bring in your own wine and there is no corkage fee for the first bottle.

While the place is a well designed and comfortable site located in a nice city, the food and the service were terrible. The salad had some stale leaves that the waiter said was the kind of lettuce. I had to turn on my phone light to show him that it was spoiled. Service was lacking. We had to wait for everything. Busy day? If you expect a Valentine's crowd you should prepare for this. The music would have been great but it was too noisy. I wish I could be more positive but we were disappointed.

A nice spot just a short distance (about 2 or 3 blocks) from main downtown area and seems to get overlooked as neighborhood looks a little gritty, not like the tourist areas.

The restaurant is a bit loud in part because of a large bar area and live entertainment -- acoustic guitar the night we were there. We asked for a quiet table and were seated in a nice small dining room away from the bar area and it was very pleasant.

My wife had a nice grilled Alaskan Halibut; I had wild boar ragu over lovely creamy risotto. Both meals were very good.

Service was prompt and pleasant. Would go again.

I reserved for dinner on a night with advertised Jazz. I requested a table near the music because that is what we were wanting in our evening. I left my phone number and email. When I arrived (about and hour after the band was supposed to have started) they informed me that the music was cancelled. I wish they had sent an email to me informing of that fact prior to my driving all the way to Napa from San Francisco. We cancelled the reservation and found someplace else to dine, then found another establishment in Sonoma for Jazz. But our plans were ruined.

If you are going to have reservations, you should honor then and not give someone without reservations a tablessing ahead of a person who have been waiting 25 minutes beyond their reservation time ...been to this restaurant in the past ...but will Never return

We had a reservation for 6 at 7:30. We were not seated until 8:00pm. They had a table for 8 that would have fitted our party but they wouldn't give us the table. The party of 8 showed up way after us and they seated them leaving us still to wait. They offered us a free bottle of wine for $50 which was nice but we were ready to eat and preferred just getting a table. I'm not a person that leaves reviews but wanted, in this case, for people to see what happened.

Disappointing overall. It was so loud we couldn't even carry on a conversation. Our table was in the middle of the room and it was super busy around us and one of the staff members bumped my water glass as he squeezed by, spilling it all over. The gnocchi came out cold, so I sent it back and opted for a salad instead since I didn't want to wait another 20+ minutes for another entree. The salad was actually really delicious and I enjoyed every bite of it. We will definitely not go back. It was just too loud and chaotic in there and the food wasn't good enough to make up for it.

Very poor service, took a long time to get drinks, never received bread despite requesting it multiple times & the restaurant not being overly crowded. Food took a long time as well, wasn't overly impressed with the pizza. In the end we walked out disappointed. In fairness, one of my friends raved about his scallops, but ultimately the lack of service was extremely disappointing.
