I have only had lunch here, but more than a dozen times. ALWAYS great food. A little noisy, but that's Italian!!! Informed servers, good strong cocktails, and food is not to be missed. Recommend it highly.

It was my first time to visit the restaurant. Hubby loves the place and raves so much about it and never misses the place when he's in town. I couldn't agree 100%, however, the food was good. It's relatively cheap based on the servings and how fresh their ingredients. Definitely a place to try when in town. It gets so... More

I've always enjoyed the food, service and ambiance at Bistro Don G - for over 20 years! It is our go-to place and it never lets us down. Yes, they do give a little extra special service to us locals, but we deserve it! Be sure to have reservations and in the summer dine on the deck. For large groups... More

I really don't understand all the raves about this place. Everything was good...the service, food, atmosphere....but not great. The only feature that stands out for me is the acoustics. The restaurant was packed with people on a Sunday afternoon, but we could have a conversation without shouting. Other restaurants could leArn from this.

Great pasta dishes, plus attractive menu of other entrees. Good service, a restaurant that is a favorite of the locals. Good solid Italian at reasonable prices with very pleasant ambiance. I live here in the valley and have been eating there for over twenty years.

The food was delicious! Our waiter was very friendly and everything he recommended was great! Another plus: 3-min walk from Senza hotel, where we stayed.

Not much to say. This is one of the most highly rated restaurants here and after eating there, I understand why. Food, service, ambiance, were all we could have ever desired .... and then some. HIGHLY recommended. VERY. Don't miss this place if visiting the area (and I am amazed I had missed it given how many times I have... More

Had a very nice dinner with great friends at the end of a long day of wine tasting (first world problem!). They have a nice outside dining area with overhead heaters and a great menu with some yummy Italian treats! Service was excellent and not too far from the Caneros Inn where we were staying...would definitely go again if in... More
