Loved our experience at BDG. Very friendly & attentive staff. Nice Ambiance. Decently sized menu, it was tough to choose! Several veggie options. Settled on asparagus soup with truffle cream, which was great and ravioli with lemon cream. Actually half lemon cream and half tomato sauce as the waitress suggested, both were delicious! The lemon was so unique, I hope... More

I just loved this bustling place for lunch! Reminded me of a parisien bistro! The gardens are beautiful and photo-worthy but truly, the food is spectacular. We enjoyed a charcuterie board, some wine, cocktails, the Caesar salad, spaghetti, pizza and octopus, and all were fantastic! Just delightful. Very attentive, personal service. I can't wait to go back!!

This is our go-to restaurant; we live nearby and are always greeted warmly and treated well. The food is consistently good, and the service is very attentive. The wine list is very good and well priced.

Had drinks at the bar while waiting for our reservation. Met a wonderfully lady! Dinner was good but one of our meals, a chicken dinner, seemed to take forever. After a long day, we could wait not any longer and had it packed to go. Needless to say, that meal was wasted. The restaurant was beautiful and we were seated... More

While we were up in the Napa area, my wife made reservations here for my Birthday. Very nice atmosphere, friendly service, and easy to find if you are not from the area. The food and attention to you were some of the Beast I have had in awhile. They really take pride in what they are doing. My Wife really... More

This is a well established, successful restaurant on the way to yountville. Even though you are greeted by Giovanni as you enter, you know immediately that you have entered a well oiled machine. Founded more than 20 years ago, this is a Napa landmark. I had a half bottle of Nozzole chianti reserva and risotto with short rib. The food... More

This Italian restaurant is easy to find on Route 29 about 3 miles north of Napa. Reservations are advised, particularly in the busy season. It is a large and busy with friendly Italian waiters. The service and food is very good but the menu was disappointingly small with mostly pasta dishes and no veal dishes.
