Italian Amazing

I've been at many Italian restaurants, I went to this one during the summer , a beautiful day for a great lunch. Very pricey but I loved all the food, everything was delicious and my dine partner thought so too.

Tourist Trap Ripoff

I've dined at many restaurants in and around Napa since I moved to the area and I've come to the conclusion that there are three types of restaurants to be found here: Places that the locals eat at but aren't good, places that tourists eat at that aren't good, and places that not too many people know about and are excellent. Don Giovanni is located right off the highway to attract tourists and it serves expensive ove... view more

Best Italian in Napa

This restaurant has been around for a long time and I was happy to see if was still as busy as ever on a recent trip to Napa. \r \r I dined here 15 years ago and loved it, so I was pleasantly surprised that it was every bit as good as I remembered from the atmosphere, to the service and especially the food. I was also surprised at how reasonable the wine list was. Of course they had some pricey local wines, but ... view more

cute place, easy to find, but too salty

the place is pretty cute and very easy to find. the food was salty. stick w/ a brick oven pizza (we had the basil and mozzarella pizza- yum!). the porcini linguine was too cheesy and salty- skip it. we also had the ravioli (skip it-only 6 on the plate and quite bland; we did the half lemon sauce half tomato sauce) and the seared salmon (try it- the salmon is pan fried golden brown and crunchy on one side and serve... view more

We were in Napa and decided to try Bistro Don Giovanni after reading a lot of rave reviews. We went there on a Tuesday night for our 8 o'clock reservation. The waiting time was a good 45-50 minutes before being seated inspite of the reservation. The place was crowded and we spent the time waiting in the garden over a few drinks. For starters we ordered Fritto Misto -- it was one of the best fried calamari. It was ri... view more

GQ rated hamburgers gets reviewed

12/11/06 Went for lunch to check out one of the top 20 hamburgers that was rated in GQ magazine. The top ten burgers are all on the east coast mostly in the NY and Philly area. So how could Napa measure up? Well it does not. The grilled bistro burger , $12.50 came with cheese, a piece of ribbed lettuce, red onions, small bowl of mild pickles, and 4 lightly battered onion rings; no tomato. You can request frie... view more

Must try

This is a local favorite and for good reason. Of the 10's of times I've been I've always had a great meal. I love sitting out on the patio both in the summer and winter - in the fall/winter try to get a seat close to the fireplace. A bonus is that they have a full bar. In my opinion a couple of the must-try items are the Frutti di Mare (calamari, shrimp beans & fennel - nobody does it better) & the salmon. I'm g... view more

A little bit of Italy

7 adults 3 kids a receipe for disaster, right? Not at Bisto Don Giovanni. Everything went off without a hitch. A few calamari appetizers along with some heirloom tomatos started us off on the right foot. Couple that with Risto fungi, penne, and a hamburger (yes a hamburger) made for a delicious late Sunday afternoon lunch. Did I mention the 3 bottles of wine that the serrver recommended. They went perfectly wit... view more

Hard to find but amazingly crowded place

It might be hard to find on Highway 29, but apparently everyone else found their way there with no problem. We arrived well after 8pm and still had a 40-minute wait. If you don't mind crowding around it bar, it may eliminate some waiting time, which was what we did. The bartender was attentive enough to make sure we had our food and take care of everyone else's drink requests. \r \r From the look of the menu, the p... view more
