Small place with great food. We enjoyed the mussels, burrata, braised short ribs and risotto. Our group of four all raved about our meals. Best food we had while in Napa Valley.

Perfect thin crust brick oven pizza with delicious sauce, delicious cheese, and a great crust. We loved it. The service was great too

Love this place. A place that is a local hang-out and the owner, Jude, knows everyone. Sit at the counter and you may score a taste of wine from one of the winemakers or importers that are always stopping in for lunch or dinner. Eggplant...More

This place was recommended to us while we were visiting Napa. A bit pricey, but worth it. Very fresh soup, pasta, calamari dishes. Very friendly service too. We'd come back.
