Late night happy hour, small happy hour menu, but awesome dishes! Nepalese chicken curry is awesome! Panini and the mini pizzas are always a favorite. The regular menu features a wide variety of dishes, but the favorite is the escargot! Order your own, I'm not sharing :) Pair your dishes with wine or spirits. Try different wines as sampler sizes...

So nice to meet some locals, get away from the standard tourist crowds. Happened by chance to go there, amazingly friendly staff, awesome food and great local vocals from our entertainer of the night. They went out of their way, ( even to get a soft drink from elsewhere for one of the kids) to make us feel relaxed. Would... More

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.

Formaggio Wine Bar is hidden at Market City Shopping Centre. Food and Service were good we enjoyed the braised Short Ribs - excellent, Bruschetta and Fondutta very nice but portions were small for price paid 100.00 + for 2 pax. The room is kept uncomfortable dimly lit. All in all nice experience and we will be back.

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 ourselves. Small plates but reasonably priced. Pork belly tacos were good as well as the... 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 and the eye candy is always a delight!

Not fancy, but my beef short ribs could have rivaled any of those served at a five star restaurant in New York City. The service was very friendly and helpful. Live music an added bonus. Warning : this gem his hard to find. Get directions before you get lost.

Formaggio Wine Bar is located in a small shopping plaza, almost missed it driving by. This hole-in-the-wall restaurant provides live music, open seating, and an assortment of wines. No reservations were needed, even arriving at 7:00pm. Formaggio is dimly light and provides this great ambiance, especially when the live music begins. We selected the Margherita Pizza, Lobster Mac n Cheese,... More

I have eaten here many times and have never had a bid dinner. Such great items come from such a small kitchen. Owner always comes to the table and says, "Hi."

They opened at 530p. We got there at around 6p on a Thursday and the crowd was just starting to fill in. I didn't ask if they had beer but my gf ordered the mojito and the sunrise from their happy hour list and was pleased. They had a full bar I ended up with a double crown and sprite.... More
