“Unpretentious, friendly and fun”
Originally established in 1993 by owners Joe Ruffino, Joe and Nancye Peatman. Downtown Joe’s has a City of Napa tradition dating back over eighty years. Joe Ruffino’s Grandmother, Grace Ruffino opened Ruffino’s Restaurant in 1944. The family restaurant flourished through three generations until 2004. Prior to opening Ruffino’s, Grace was cooking up Italian fare at The Depot Hotel for the Tamborelli family whom opened the Depot in 1927. The Depot survived until 2006. The location of The Depot, Ruffino’s, and Downtown Joe’s are all within two blocks from each other in Downtown Napa. The Joe and Nancye Peatman bought out the Ruffinos in 2004, maintaining the Old Napa Italian tradition of operating a friendly, down to earth business, where all staff are valued and respected and all guests are welcome, whether indigenous or migratory to the Napa Valley. Unpretentious, friendly and fun, Downtown Joe’s holds true to its roots, caring for every guest as a valued human spirit and not as a credit card. Surrounded by an influx of new fantastic wine business restaurants, Downtown Joe’s is one of the last connections to Old Napa; a wonderful place and home to wonderful people before Grape was King. An American Grill…. our menu features traditional American dishes, combined with the freshness of California, cooked with the flair that is true Napa Valley. Bernabe Leon and Gaspar Montoya have been a part of the creative kitchen team at Downtown Joe’s since its inception in 1994. For the past ten years, they have continuously adjusted menu and recipes to meet the changing tastes of our region. Today’s menu features many Gluten free and vegetarian dishes.
