Tra Vigne ****


Cuisine: Italian

Description & Atmosphere
Tra Vigne's Tuscan-style restaurant is one of the most popular eateries in Napa Valley. Its spacious dining room has 30 foot-high ceilings and the atmosphere is upbeat and fun.

We prefer to dine al fresco, especially when the weather is nice — the large patio outside feels very Mediterranean... and romantic too, especially at night with all the twinkling lights on the trees.



Food
Cuisine combines Italian and Californian influences. While enjoying a glass of wine and looking over the menu, we highly recommend ordering the Mozzarella Cheese "Al Minuto" (hand-made at the moment ordered, grilled bruschetta, vestri olio nuovo) — the combination of the warm cheese, olive oil, and crispy bread is incredible. What a way to start your meal! And it goes great with a salad — their Caesar Salad rates as one of the best.

Stand-out dinner entrées include delicious Homemade Pastas (we love the Sage Infused Pappardelle, braised rabbit ragu, wild mushrooms, and grana padano), local Dungeness Crab, Fresh Fish, Organic Chicken, smoked and braised Niman Ranch Beef Short Ribs... and more!

Leave room for dessert, even if you order one with extra forks. Tra Vigne's version of the classic Tiramisu — house-made
chocolate Mascarpone layered with chocolate sponge cake and marsala Zabaglione
— is rich and yummy!

Another decadent alternative is the Lemon Curd Tart with brown sugar meringue and Summer berry sauce — just like a mini Lemon Meringue pie.

Tra Vigne also has an impressive wine list.



Tra Vigne Bar
Enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail at the bar while waiting for your table.

Tra Vigne is a FUN place to entertain family, friends or VIP clients. If you're in Napa for an off-site event, treat your Sales and Marketing Teams to a celebratory meal.


Private Party Venues
Tra Vigne has four private venues — plus one at the adjoining Merryvale Vineyards — that are available for special functions.

Cantinetta Tra Vigne
The ivy-covered historic stone building is great for groups of 10-27
people. Available evenings,
Mon-Sat from 7:30pm.

The Tuscan-Style Courtyard
Tra Vigne's atmospheric "piazza" can accommodate between 35-140 guests (May-October). Shaded by Mulberry trees, the Tuscan-style courtyard and its striped umbrella tables and bronze fountain sculpture, is a perfect setting for that special occasion.

The Vineyard
The Vineyard area, located just outside the wall of the Tuscan Courtyard, is ideal for intimate groups of 10-20.

Magnum Library
Oak-paneled private dining
room accommodates parties
from 20-70. The Library is
also very private, making it
ideal for business meetings
and seminars.
