If you’ve been hanging out in nearby Yountville and need a break from the fine dining scene, come to this downtown Napa institution known for Italian food and an idyllic patio. The building used to be a bank, so the main dining room is big, with high ceilings, huge windows, and lots of groups celebrating, but if you’re looking for something more romantic, ask for one of the secluded seats upstairs. All meals start with bread served with a flavorful oniony, olive tapenade that’s an excellent start to a meal that should be focused on the pastas. Our picks include the tagliatelle bolognese, rigatoni con salsiccia, and the mushroom ravioli.
