Italian Restaurant

“Ask for the "fried olive" appetizer!!! It's on their secret menu. Try any one of their homemade pasta dishes, you cant go wrong. This what The Michelin A List has to say “Incredible Napa people-watching and superbly consistent Italian food. Park among the olive trees and grapevines, then take a seat in the airy, flower-decked dining room. If it’s sunny, choose one of the rattan chairs on the peerless, postcard-perfect garden terrace.””
