Bistro Don Giovanni
This relaxed, cozy eatery is popular with local vintners and a great recommendation for excellent food. No wonder, as its owners are Giovanni and Donna Scala who also own Scala's Bistro in San Francisco. The wood and tile dining area, adorned with lots of fresh flowers and pottery, features a huge fireplace and glassed-in kitchen. Outside, a sprawling patio overlooks adjacent vineyards. The traditional Italian cuisine is impeccably prepared. Recommended dishes include the Trenne Pasta with Lamb, Artichokes, Olives, Roasted Tomatoes and Ricotta Salata. The wine list features local and Italian vintages and the service is first-rate.
My parents and soon-to-be in-laws had dinner here two nights before my wedding, and we had a wonderful time and great food made better by the fabulous view of the surrounding vineyards and the sun setting over the hills to the west.
This is an outstanding restaurant with a large, open dining room and an excellent menu! The service is first-class and the wine list is awesome! I recommend reservations on the week-end since it is popular!
