Enoteca has quickly become one of our favorite places to hang out. Finding a table is sometimes difficult on the weekends, but they do give you sparkling wine to sip while you wait. The selection of wines by the glass is great, as it should be for a wine bar. Prices are a little on the high side, but to... More

I know, wine bars are 'a dime a dozen'. What impressed me was this: I was perusing the bottles of Italian wine on the shelves, selected one and sat down. A few moments later the bar manager came to my table and said he noticed me looking at the wine and he wondered if he might be of assistance in... More

I heard a lot of great things about this place, so I decided to visit one warm Sunday. It’s fairly well hidden in a strip mall just north of the intersection of Santa Cruz Avenue and Highway 9. They serve wine by the bottle or glass, small cheese and meat plates (you can build your own from a dozen or... More

This has become one of our go-to date nights. The smaller plates and cozy atmosphere is perfect for a night out! We are very partial to the amazing gelato, too!

We have been here several times and always enjoyed it. It is definitely a place for young people so we are kinda out of place but it is such a fun restaurant that we always enjoy it. Everyone is friendly and the food is fun and delicious. If you want peace and quiet, go early, as it gets very busy.

The moment we stepped in, the staff's eyes lit up! They were super friendly and knowledgeable! My bestie and I met up and sat at the beautiful Italian marbled bar. The wine of the day was a PRUNO 2008 from Spain. I left with 2 bottles. The servers offered samples of their appetizers and samples of their wine to help... More

Not a sit down restaurant by any measure, Enoteca is a wine bar with more. Fantastic retail selction, from value pricing to the heavies, all fairly priced.Best staff wine knowledge I have found outside of real starred restaurants with a full time wine director / sommilier. Food was mostly small plates and apps - perfect for sharing. Room was crowded... More

I love the food here. Some people just think it's a wine bar but actually they have incredible food. The owner grows the most amazing heirloom tomatoes and anything they make with those is incredible. My other favorite is their gorgonzola salad. Nice people too.

I've been frequently ELS for over 1-1/2 years. Can't think of a better place to hang out and chill. Excellent selection of wines, fantastic service, wonderful & friendly bartenders. Joe & Mike, the owners are just super guys. Everyone there are extremely knowledgable on the wines. The monthly wine club is the greatest too, for price and selection.

Got lost, turned into the parking lot to turn around and saw this place. It was noon and practically empty on a Sunday (bad sign) but looked so inviting. My wife and I said "What the heck- we can always walk out." Server was this living doll ( and recent mother) who guided us through the menu and my wife... More
