Pica Pica is a MUST while in Napa! I had never eaten Venezuelan before and I am hooked. The menu introduces Venezuelan favorites with local meats and produce to create a delicious outcome. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, but my favorites are the Pubellon Arapa & the Chupe soup. Oh and the frozen Sangria...mmmmmm!

Pros: Tasty, good service, good price

Cons: Wish there was one in SF

This food is tasty, tasty, tasty. I've eaten here a couple of times and have not been disappointed. Try the Pabellon. It's shredded skirt steak with plantains with terrific flavors. You can't go wrong with the Yucca fries. For drinks you can get anything from water to beer to Frozen Sangria. Order at the counter and eat at the bar or wander outside and grab a table overlooking the Napa River. The staff is friendly and the prices right. For a quick bite that taste like a million bucks Pica Pica is the place.

This is WHAT TO DO when you go to Napa on the first or second day. Go to Copia and purchase a wine card, walk 30 seconds to Pica Pica, grab lunch to go, and wallk back to Copia, grab a full glass of wine, and enjoy the picnic at the gardens.

For the picnic, DO ask for extra black beans sauce and hot sauce, the vegetarian items are FAB!!! and the grilled cheese? move over French Laundry. I have found my new obsession.

The sweet plantains, AKA platanos maduros, are a great addition to the vegetarian tofu sandwich, the sweetness of the plantains and the savoty of the sandwich just screams white wine. Please remember to drizzle the black beans sauce all over your lunch.

Do take a rest and enjoy a sip of the wine?
but you will find yourself getting back to the food rather quickly. It?s like lunch in paradise. Lunch for 2 people and the best 2 wines at Copia- Priceless.
Oh yes, you also get an education in wine.

This is the only Venezuelan restaurant I can think of in the entire Bay Area. It is not a sit down restaurant. It is more of a take out place with a counter and tables within the Oxbow Public Market, a covered hall next to Copia by Napa river. They serve comfort Venezuelan food, the kind you can buy and eat in the street anywhere in Venezuela and it is delicious! I went with a Venezuelan friend and I met the owner. To him, the food was authentic. We tried every thing. It is rich, full of cheese, some dishes are made with normal corn whereas others are made with very sweet corn. It is not for anyone on a diet. My favorite was the chicken/avocado salad in an arepa called pepeada. It had perfect flavor. Try the place next time you happen to be in Napa. I highly recommend it if you fancy South American comfort food.

One of the first to sling chow from Napa's Oxbow Market, Pica Pica offers a Venezuelan twist on tapas. Finally---a take-out counter menu that showcases something south-of-the-border besides tacos. Corn dough forms the base of each main.…
