I came here during a business trip and sat at the bar. Ordered a glass of wine and the chicken with cucumber yogurt/tomatoes. The food was delicious and the wine was good, but $21 for a glass of wine seemed a little ridiculous. Still, I would recommend this place for the great food and service.

We went with another couple. They spilled wine all over me. With barely an apology, they did nothing for the $450 bill for 4 people! Food was average in taste but expensive in price, and the furniture and decor is likev cafeteria. How these owners can justify these prices is nearly unethical.

We had an amazing lunch. The wine was delicious and we sampled bruschetta and caprese. Along with gazpacho rabbit and gnocchi ! Classy elegant with a knowledgable and prompt staff!

My wife dropped in for weekend brunch to this wine bar. While the server was pleasant the meal....eggs and toast item was awful. Very long to get this basic order, eggs over cooked?, bread was grilled on a grate? and was burnt and not edible.
Not ever to return.

Friends from out of town wanted to go to a wine bar and picked this place. We hesistantly went along as our usual experience with Italian places like this is that they are overpriced with poor service so we generally tend to avoid them. And unfortunately that is exactly what we got.

First of all this place advertises itself also as a wine bar, which to me means that they should be comfortable with people just ordering wine and some appetizers / cheeses to go with the wine instead of ordering an entire meal. However, this was absolutely not the case. The waitress kept asking us if we wanted to order a main course and the longer we stayed the more unfriendly she got.

Second, we ordered a combination cheese platter. The waitress mentioned several cheese options in addition to the menu, which we ordered. However, she came back to tell us that none of them were available, which was kind of odd since it was still early in the evening. And then the cheese platter itself. It had barely any cheese and our request for some extra bread didn´t meet approval from our waitress either.

On top of that, they definitely try to upsell their wines even though our friend knew what he wanted, the waitress still suggested a much more expensive wine even though she admitted that she had never drank the wine he ordered after a specific question about the wine he ordered.

And on our way out the waitress managed to give us such a unfriendly stare, that I just wished we had not tipped her.

All in all this place is just not worth the money. You can better go to a cheese and wine specialty store and a buy a selection of cheeses and wines and I am sure that you will have a more enjoyable evening.
