Buon Giorno, Amici.
Warm and a little muggy on the Riverfront Promenade this morning.  But all is relative. We have some customers from Arizona enjoying  some morning cappuccino on our patio and they think it is absolutely delightful here.  

It will probably be a warm night tonight. Perfect weather to enjoy some rustic Italian Bruschetta on our patio overlooking the Napa River.

Should people who don’t appreciate a great play on words be “Punished” ?   (: (: (:

When you are done wine tasting for the day,  you can cool off on our shaded patio overlooking the Napa River with a refreshing cup of Limoncello Sorbetto or a cup of Espresso Gelato.  If that doesn’t do it for you, you can enjoy one one of our Iced Coffees or an Iced Tea.

Dr. Gelato’s Plate of the Day;  
Handmade Cheese Ravioli with Fresh Peas and Tomato Sauce   $9.99  Tax Included 

Featured Panini:
FONTINA TOAST  -   Fontina Cheese & Pancetta ( Cooked Italian Bacon).   Served  on Artisan bread.  Toasted to perfection on our Panini grill.   $7.00  Tax Included

We use  Clover-Stornetta   O r g a n i c   Whole Milk to make our gelato. The fat content of our gelato is therefore the same as a glass of milk between 6 to 8 %.  Ice Cream (by Federal Law) must contain at least 10% Fat. The law also stipulates that a gallon must weigh at least 4.5 pounds. This is to insure that the manufacturer  does not put excessive amounts of air in the ice cream and that you as the consumer gets some value for the money you spend on Ice Cream.

Today’s Featured Gelato Flavor is Mint Oreo Cookie

Thursday’s  Flavors:
Mint Oreo Cookie
Tiramisu

Renting a bike from the famous NAPA VALLEY VELO bike shop this weekend for a little tour of the Napa Valley. After your ride you can stop in at Frati for a little refreshment to reenergize those aching muscles.  Try one of our Sorbets. They are very refreshing and have zero fat content.
