We have been looking for this little wine bar after many favourable reviews on line. Unfortunately we had dinner reservations locally and could only pay a brief visit but if has left an impression. A small interior means customers spill onto the street to enjoy the nice selection of wines, meats and cheeses. Our visit was all too short but... More

We went to this wine bar a couple of nights and loved it. The decor is really cool and the place has a very relaxed and chilled vibe. They have a really good wine list and you can order many wines by the glass. We also sampled the charcuterie and cheese which were gorgeous. The staff were so lovely, very... More

Went to this rustic, intimate local wine bar for a light lunch. Very much a locals restaurant and certainly not catering for tourists which only served to add to its appeal. Excellent wine list, served by the glass or bottle. Small tapas like menu freshly prepared each day. We had the chicken lasagne and meatballs both of which were excellent.... More

This is the best enoteca I have visited in Italy, with excellent wines and amazing finger food. Locals go there to have a snack and a drink, and there is no reason why you should not eat your dinner there, by picking small dishes from a tasteful menu.

We ended up here almost by accident after we couldnt find the place we were looking for - it was perfect and exactly the thing we were looking for. The wine selection was great and the free aperitivo was very tasty. We were lucky enough to snag a seat at the bar, which was nice because we were able to... More

After a long day or traversing the city, my sisters, friends, and I decided to sit and have an aperitivo. We asked a nearby restaurant and they recommended Il Santino. Walking in, the seating was limited and yet the five of us managed to sit at a small table and did not feel cramped. The staff was amiable and ingratiating.... More

You would nearly miss this place just walking by - it's just a tiny one room bar/tapas place, but it was a great find. This is clearly a hip place to go for locals with lots of young people drinking wine and artisan beers. There are a few tiny tables and a small bar as well as a place outside... More

As far as wine bars go...I loved this place. The apps were really really really good. Atmosphere was very relaxed and chill. Unpretentious. We just ordered whatever they recommended which was the liver pate. It was so good. My husband is not a liver person but even he could appreciate how clean and good it was. I just wished I... More

We stumbled on this place by accident and went back two evenings later. It's small but popular with chic locals. We didn't eat the main food but were served tapas style small bites with our wine which was excellent and fresh (tomatoes). It's not cheap but recommended never the less
