“Great selections of wines”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

This wine bar had a great selection of regional wines and to buy and sit and drink there or take away at sensible prices. I believe they do about 20 bottles of wine by the glass and they also have a big selection of grappas.

While it was not exactly full when we were there end of August, I would imagine that when the city returns to normality after the summer break would be packed.

The staff who seemed to thaw after a while said that they had music there and it got very busy.

The food was basic cold meats and cheeses but then it doesn't profess to be and eating place or restaurant just a good honest wine bar.

We managed to get a table by the window which was a great people watching place as there are plenty of other watering holes and eating places in this street and surrounding area!

“Little wine bar, local experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

Having read some nice reviews, I decided to give Al Vino al Vino a try. Quite difficult to find in small Roman streets, the wine bar is well-known by locals - good to have some rest of tourists-packed places so numerous in Rome. The staff is English-speaking and professional, they suggested some good wines. Cheese plate and small tapas were a perfect accompaniment - everything for a very reasonable price. Nothing special, but a pleasant experience away from crowds!

“Okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

If it didn't say 19 I wouldn't know it was the place. It just said osteria. Music is good. Wine selection is nice, and its relation to the forum is great. Not open till 5, good ending to a busy day. The area looks like little India lol... But it does seem like a local place.

“Tapas style wine bar for aperitivo and more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Following an rather ancient article of 2005 we decided to give this wine bar a fair chance. My wife started with a white porto while I reviewed the huge list of wines. We selected a red Edna Rosso of 2011. Not too heavy and combined with some cheese and later on gamon iberico a perfect choice. Nice people, good atmosphere and not too expensive. Perfect closure of our 4 days in Rome.
