Entering Formaggio through a plain dark glass door brings one to a dark wine-cellar like ambiance. You feel like you are in a cozy basement wine bar in some hipster neighborhood. This is a wine bar so their are wine pours in various sizes. 6...More

There were very few customers in the restaurant. Service was OK, but the waiter was totally unfamiliar with the wines and the food choices. There was live music, which thankfully was not too loud. The food was average.

First time to this wine bar. A little dark inside the bartender and manager were very attentive. Large menu but small food prep area that is open with a double oven. The pizza was average. Impressive wine list but pricey.

We found this little spot tucked away behind a shopping center. Food was good. Service was a bit slow, but we weren't in any hurry, so it didn't bother us. Live entertainment in the form of a guy playing guitar to background music. We enjoyed...More

I enjoy being welcomed by Naj and opening the place up at 5:30 to enjoy Happy Hour specials and standing favorite dishes. The wine selection is good and food pairings make it wonderful. It does not hurt that the restrooms are now clean and bright...More
