Porta Via is a neighborhood bistro with a cozy, relaxing atmosphere. Located in the heart of Beverly Hills on Canon Drive, our outdoor dining patio is the perfect place to enjoy the Southern California sun. Our fresh American/Italian cuisine adds to the homey feeling of the restaurant. Regulars (which are a good sign) like the crab cakes, the fried calamari or the beet salad for appetizers. Our chef offers a selection of pasta unless you decide to choose an entrée that can be a Parmigiano-crusted halibut, sesame-seared tuna, a chicken paillard or a grilled rib-eye. Our lunch menu offers our signature burger and a selection of sandwiches (vegetarian, prosciutto, etc.). <br /><br /><br />We are currently expanding our <br />wine list to bring you interesting and unusual wines to<br />accompany your dining experience.

Bistro Don Giovanni offers a warm and inviting experience with all the personality of a Mediterranean hideaway. Chef Donna Scala’s rustic fare incorporates local fruits, vegetables, meat and fowl into traditional, fresh Italian dishes with her signature, creative flair. Freshly baked breads, local olive oil, beautiful salads, tasty appetizers and homemade pastas are inspired by the bounty of Napa Valley. Main courses offer an array of regionally sourced and highest quality creations of chicken, steaks, burgers and seafood. The bar features hundreds of Napa Valley and Italian wines as well as a host of signature cocktails.

A word from City Winery at the Napa Valley Opera House<br />City Winery is the third of its kind, but a unique homage to wine country, all while indulging the senses: tap wine from 30 local winery partners, a top-notch music venue, a full-service restaurant, and private event space in the heart of Downtown Napa in the historic Opera House.<br /><br />The wines are exceptional: Our tap partners have supplied us with some of the most unique wines in the valley – many are one-time only barrels you won’t find anywhere else. And there is a 400+ bottle list to boot!<br /><br />The dinner menu features Mediterranean-inspired, locally sourced small plates designed to complement the extensive wine list. Burrata, Arancini, Flatbreads, Carpaccio and hearty meat dishes are varied enough to please a diverse crowd over a few rounds of wine. With the evening’s concert serenading you through your meal, dinner at City Winery means there’s always something fun to experience. <br />

From his training in Osaka to his acclaimed work in Kyoto, Hawaii, and Los Angeles, Keizo's creativity and innovation bring a fresh interpretation to classical cooking styles. His award-winning sushi is at the heart of his technique, but his repertoire extends into a full range of small plate selections, allowing him to create a unique and varied dining experience.
