Fodor's Review

At this boisterous bistro with a roadhouse feel you can peek past the copper pots hanging in the open kitchen to see the 750°F wood-burning oven. The Cal-Italian food here is simultaneously inventive and comforting: fritto misto usually composed of onions, fennel, calamari, and rock shrimp, lightly battered and deftly deep-fried; pesto ravioli with lemon-cream, tomato, or herb-butter sauce; pepperoni pizza with Jimmy Nardello peppers, tomatoes, and stracciatella cheese; and lamb and ricotta meatballs. Depending on your mood (and the weather), you can have your meal in the main dining room, in the bar area, or on the patio or lawn.

OK Place

I visited Don Giovanni on July 12, 2007. The place looked charming and it had the best olive bread I've ever tasted. I visited with my friend. We had been driving from Las Vegas all night and had just arrived in Napa at 11:00 am. We looked a bit winded and felt that our waiter (an older gentlemen) did not treat us very well. He gave us a look that said, "what are you doing in a fancy place like this?" Although,many people around us were in jeans,

they were not treated the way we were.
