In Napa for a friends wedding. The host at our Bed and Breakfast suggested Don Giovanni's for a nice dinner. A superb choice! The waiter seemed efficient and knowledgable. Everything from the fresh bread to the calamari, imaginative salad, my wife's ravioli and my Berkshire pork chop was deliciously prepared and elegantly served. The wine list was extensive, of course,... More

Love this restaurant they use local produce and the fish dishes are so fresh. You have to have reservations but strongly recommend. The soups are wonderful. The only draw back is it is expensive but if you are a foodie you won't mind.

We had not eaten at Bistro Don Giovanni for at least 8 years. We stopped in for lunch after arriving in town. The restaurant and grounds are just lovely. You would never know it has been there for a long time. My husband and I shared the Frito Misto and the four cheese pizza. Both were amazing! Plus, the foccaccia... More

Beautiful outdoor seating area and a very warm and welcoming dining room. Full of fresh flowers and decor that made you feel like you were inside someone's home. Loved that they had an open kitchen, by putting up a window in front of it, so you saw it, but didn't hear it. We had the calamari appetizer with a spicy... More

The restaurant was slammed with visitors attending the "Taste of Yountville" event. Our party of 6 enjoyed genuine, well prepared Tuscan offerings with flawless service......Thankfully,no stodgy pasta with red sauce or "gravy" in sight! While there is an excellent selection of Napa wines available,there are many bargains in the Italian section of the wine list.

Probably the finest pasta I have ever eaten. Homemade silk pasta and pesto was definitely in the top running for best meal on the trip. They had also excellent selections of wines available and our waiter knew his job well and was pleasant to talk with.

Great Italian food and beautiful atmosphere. Our waiter was full Italian and funny to watch and listen, and it appeared most of the staff was Italian which enhanced the experience.

We always have a great experience here, good food, good service and a lively atmosphere. We live locally so have a terrific selection of places to dine and we find ourselves at Don Giovanni more than anyplace else. Out of town guests enjoy it as much as we do. Specials change so it's hard to recommend just one dish but... More

We had dinner here with friends on our first evening in Napa. The ladies both had the beef short ribs with risotto and I have to say it was pretty good. I had the pork chop and I found it dry without much flavor. Prices were reasonable for a high end Napa restaurant but I didn't think reflected the level... More
