Top Italian Restaurants in Napa Valley
Explore Fine Italian Cuisine on Your Napa Valley Group Wine Tour
Here at the Napa Valley Wine Trolley, we know fine wines call for fine food, and few destinations in the world offer the same excellence and variety in the glass and on the plate as Napa Valley. While diverse cuisines abound in Napa Valley, the cooler temperatures of so-called “Cabernet Season,” which takes place from late fall through early spring, call for hearty fare. And what better to pair with big, rich red wines, than the warm, rich classics of Italian cuisine? Join us for a sampling of our favorite top Italian restaurants in the Napa Valley for a taste of the amazing meals you can expect on your Napa Valley group wine tour.

Drawing on both Californian and Italian traditions, Oenotri combines local harvests with classic recipes.

You can also catch brunch here, or swing by in the evening for a seasonal cocktail or snacks from the Salumi menu. Be sure to make a reservation so you don’t miss this hot-spot for local food and traditional recipes, a great addition to your Napa Valley group wine tour.

Both family-owned and operated, Ciccio blends old-world techniques with new-world, local ingredients. Their Italian cuisine is comprehensive, and their pizza is a local favorite, with toppings from traditional fare to surprising additions like crispy fried sage. Of course there is an excellent wine list—this is Napa Valley, after all—but you can also take advantage of the Negroni bar. Typically for walk-ins only, Ciccio does offer the chef’s Prix Fixe menu, an interactive dining experience for your entire table.
