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.

This family owned and run wine bar and eatery is located in the heart of the Italian district of Federal Hill in Providence RI. We enjoyed a thoroughly wonderful experience from the personalized service, detail to the preparation of food and menu selection. The mild temperatures allowed us to dine at the sidewalk tables where we conversed with other patrons...... two being the patriarch and matriarch of this 4th generation family from the Southern region of Italy. The wines are hand selected and the fresh mozzarella ( sent in twice weekly from a cousin in Naples ) are just the beginning of a memorable meal that truly transported us back to Italy. This is a must stop if you are in Providence or just passing through. Graze Mille to the family Ciao!!

The experience is best enjoyed by allowing Umberto to select the wine and your meal. Family style and delicious.

We were looking for something different, atmosphere, food and experience. We hit the jackpot. Welcomed like we were family, drinks and menu explained and away we went into Southern Italian food heaven. So nice to have serving after serving of dishes to share and experience different foods. The laughter, music, wait staff/owner made it much more than just dinner..we were "home".

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, there has never been a time when we were not happy and satisfied. This is truly like going back to Sicily!
If you haven't been there, please do yourself a favor, make a reservation ! Regardless of how often we have been here, the incredible enjoyment of the taste and the atmosphere is superb. Umberto and Lia are incomparable!
So is the food. We go no where else to dine! It's truly European ( Sicilian) dining at its best. We absolutely adore this Enoteca!!! If you haven't been here, you haven't dined!
