“I just had my favorite pizza last week at Tra Vigne- Cambozola and figs…yummy! Maybe it had arugula, too,” said Marie Smith, who’s lived in Napa for years. “Sweet and salty- my fav! We enjoyed this pizza with the Tra Vigne Cabernet made by Markham Vineyards. Yummy!”
Smith also has a great idea for pizza at home. “I like to buy the flatbread w/truffle paste from Trader Joe’s. I add fresh mozzarella, arugula and olive oil.”
Her husband, Eric, enjoys the Supreme Pizza (all meat) from Papa Joe’s Pizza in Napa on Lincoln Avenue.
Lelani Slack, of , says Papa Joe's is her favorite for take-out and Oenotri is her favorite for dining in.

"I'm sure some of the fancier places have great pizza but I think there is something to be said for good pizza at an affordable price,” Thulin wrote.
