I can’t think of enough superlatives to describe the dining experience at Enoteca Umberto. As other reviewers have written, it is run by a husband and wife team. He is the master of ceremonies and star of the show. And he knows his stuff: about...More

I was lucky enough to get a reservation for outside seating, for our wedding anniversary. The food is so fresh and expertly prepared, it was a real joy to eat. The service is like a combo of a high end Italian restaurant but with the...More

Memorable is the best adjective because it's a meal that we'll talk about for years to come. Definitely the best food that I can recall. Not much ambiance to this small restaurant with a handful of tables but that's part of it's charm because it's...More

We walked in this family owned authentic Italian restaurant after reading a few good reviews online. While I don’t think that is typically possible (make a reservation!), they sat us and we are very thankful. The good reviews didn’t even begin to do this place...More

Absolutely delicious, simple Sicilian dishes in a unique atmosphere. The owner and his wife are special people who make you feel like and feed you like you're family. Truly a special place.

Okay, every now and then you come across a place that simply impresses you from start to finish. Enoteca is one of those places! It's very small; like 6 - 8 tables small. Tight, but not cramped, and very welcoming. What you experience from the...More

We visited here for a bachelorette party because the bride loves Italian food. Although they're usually booked up, we were able to get on the cancellation list and one came up! Everything about the meal (we chose to have the mystery courses), was perfect. All...More

We had a wonderful time and a wonderful meal. Our hosts were warm and welcoming, as well as very knowledgeable regarding the food and wines of various regions of Italy. The place is tiny, so make reservations.

They only have a handful of tables and they have no problem to fill those few tables. It's like going to someone's house. Honestly this restaurant isn't scalable with their current formula but that's part of what makes the... More

I only ate there once, but on the day I went the menus was gluten centric. They had a lot of pasta and bread dishes. They did offer salads, but all the entrees had a gluten component.
