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 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.

No matter how often we dine here, it's a dinning experience!!! Not just a "going out to eat " type of experience. We no longer order. We let Umberto and Lia pick the specials of the day for us. No matter what the dish is,...More

Unique experience. Very small intimate setting. You get up close and personal with the owner and other diners. The food is outstanding. The wines the owner suggested to pair with each dish was exceptional.

This is a hidden gem in the Atwells area of Providence. First and foremost if you want to go, you NEED reservations. It is extremely small and their menu changes daily. This was a must for us, so be aware. The food is AMAZING. Attention...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.
