Cuisine: Italian

Description & Atmosphere
Oenotri is one of Napa Valley's most popular restaurants —and considered by some as one of the best Italian restaurants in the U.S. Co-chef-owners Tyler Rodde and Curtis Di Fede create incredible Southern Italian specialities of Sicily, Campania, Calabria, Basilicata and Puglia. Buon Appetito!

Located at First Street in downtown Napa (see Google map below), Oenotri's sleekly decorated dining room has a buzzy atmosphere — the bar area is situated in the left corner of the room, just off the main entrance, and a spacious open kitchen is on the right.

We like dining al fresco in Oenotri's Outdoor Courtyard, especially during warm weather (heaters are provided for chilly nights) — it's a lot quieter than inside and the babbling fountain makes you feel like you're in Italy.

Menu changes daily, however Oenotri is known for its Antipasti Salumi plate (cured meats hand-crafted in house), delicious crispy wood-fired Thin-Crust Pizzas and excellent Pasta dishes (made fresh daily).

If you don't want to order a Pizza as an entree, consider getting one to split as an appetizer just so you can try it — each bite is incredibly good!

The Spaghetti Al Pomodoro with San Marzano Tomato, Calabrian Chili, Basil and Parmigiano is fantastic. And you're in for a treat if the restaurant is serving Soft-Shelled Crab — it's not often that we see it on a menu these days and Oenotri's version of it is wonderful.

The Salumi Menu includes the Chef's Selection of six or ten salami items — if you're a meat lover, you won't want to miss a taste. And if you're not, there are plenty of other menu options to keep you happy and satisfied.

Save room for dessert — during one of our dinner visits, our party of three split the Cream Puffs drizzled with chocolate sauce and it was so yummy. Gelato, Sorbetto, and a selection of Cheeses may also be offered on the dessert menu.

Enjoy a large selection of Napa, Sonoma and Italian red and white wines by the glass and bottle.

Water (still or fizzy) along with freshly baked bread and delicious olive oil is served complimentary to each table.
