Great happy hour spot. On a Thursday night it was slow, once after 630/7 it picked up, but not overly busy. The wine list is deeper than a lot of other wine bars I've been to so I enjoyed that rather much. Also their charcuterie...More

Great place to have a very nice bottle of wine and a bite to eat. Great cosy atmosphere. The place looks and feels like it's been running by the same people for many years. Well recommended

Absolutely love this place. Quaint, charming, great service, and good wine. What's not to love? The cheese boards and pizza are also delicious!

We were looking for a cozy wine bar and found it! We'd actually stopped in the night before but couldn't grab a seat, so we came back earlier the next night and scored. Nice wines, nice bites. Very cute spot.

Had a great Friday happy hour experience! Place was hopping, but server configured a table for 4. Fresh Pizza and meatballs were a great accompaniment to wines.

Great wines, great Italian vibe. Small plates of delicious food. Can't wait to go back. The bartender is from Italy and makes you feel like you are in the center of Tuscany. A truly special place in the heart of NYC.
