The other day we stopped at Bistro Don Giovanni for lunch and it was a perfect match of wonderful food, service, and atmosphere. We hadn't been here for a while, don't know why? Except there are so many excellent restaurants in the Napa area. We both had "Madilla" a Pesto Pasta with their home made bread, that is so light... More

Always enjoyable, with very nice food & ambiance - Living in the wine country Don Giovanni is a regular staple for us. We prefer to sit outside, but inside is on of the most comfortable any place in the valley. For visitors Don Giovanni is a Napa Valley must !

For starters, the restaurant has inside and outside seating. Inside has a much higher loudness factor but outside it could be too warm or too cold. We enjoyed eating outside and the heaters did their job. Our server was great. He recommended good wines, good appetizers and good desserts too.

Loved our meal at this restaurant. Excellent menu variety and the staff was amazing. I made a mistake on my reservation but the hostess was very accommodating to us. A must stop when you are in Napa.

This came highly recommended for lunch and from the fresh bread to the entree it was outstanding. I'm not great with Italian food names so I'll describe. The appetizer with the mozzarella and tomatoes over toasted bread was the best I've ever had. Very complex and smokey flavor. I had the twist pasta with onion, tomato sauce and bacon and... More

My mother and I celebrated a belated Mother's Day lunch at Bistro Don Giovanni outside on the patio. This was the second time we've been here and both times the venue, service, and food were excellent. I had shrimp scampi and my mother had the braised short ribs. The strawberry shortcake dessert deserves a special mention: it may have been... More

Excellent food. Great service. Decent atmosphere, though a bit loud inside. Would definitely return. $20 corkage for your fun Napa selection.

Great pizza! Also shared the roasted eggplant bruschetta, amazing. Sat outside. Thought would be too cold, but they had heaters, beautiful ambience. Lots of people celebrating birthdays, but casual enough. Would come back in a heartbeat.
