Oenotri Restaurant Review

: A bright spot on the downtown Napa scene, Oenotri offers southern Italian cuisine layered with seasonal ingredients culled from the restaurant's four-acre garden. A comfortable, welcoming ambience pervades the rustic interior, featuring exposed brick walls, warm colors and an open kitchen. House-made salumi is a specialty, and a noteworthy start. Oenotri's wood-fired, thin-crust Neapolitan pizzas serve as appetizers or full meals; try the margherita with garden fresh tomato sauce or opt for one dotted with savory pepperoni, melted mozzarella, hot pepper, caramelized onions and arugula. House-made pasta includes the thin fidei alla carbonara, ravioli with wild mushroom and boar, or pappardelle with Gorgonzola, walnuts and peas. More substantial secondi may bring halibut, pork or quail. For dessert, try the ricotta panna cotta, chocolate sformato or sorbet, especially delightful when paired with a dessert wine, liqueur or espresso. Italian wines are a focus, but many local varietals are offered by the glass or bottle.
