Happening neighborhood joint…really delicious and totally comfortable. -Susan Feniger, Top Chef
For flavorful Italian tapas and impeccably aged Brunellos and Barolos, this West Village wine bar is a must-visit. Don’t leave without trying a crostini.
Try the brandade-it comes in a mason jar pooled with an extra quantity of olive oil. The taste on a piece of toast, or simply pulled out of the jar with a finger and licked, is superb.
It's italian meets tapas meets brunch. Get anything with their super chunky walnut pesto.
At $42 the schioppettino/refosco from Friuli is a good red wine option that pairs well with heavier dishes like the wild boar pate. Buon appetito!
A little crowded and noisy but a secret garden in the back is the perfect place to enjoy your crisp glass of wine. Make sure to visit downstairs, which will reveal a dark and elegant wine cellar.
the rabbit pot pie, amazing crust & heavenly comfort food on a snowy night.
Try the walnut pesto. It'll make you giggle with girly delight. It's worth a trip from anywhere in the universe. O. M. G.
Go to Gottino for breakfast, sit in the garden, and have amazing crepes, eggs, and crostini.
My happy place. Rarely, do I put my experience in anothers' hands. Ra'ud is one of five.
The crostini are to die for. The fig, goats cheese and honey one especially. Also make sure you check out their freshly made fritatas and pies, incredible.
Hidden garden at the back of what seems like a narrow wine bar with a few seats. Good for drinking wine outside, or brunch on the weekends.
Amazing service. Great atmosphere. The lamb stew was delicious!
Incredible music here. From Wilco to Fleet Foxes to She & Him to Beirut. Great wine too!
Best service ever
Go downstairs and check out all the baskets of produce and wine racks.
Adorable place, food is amazing. Bartenders are super knowledgeable. Any seat is a good seat.
Stay as long as you can until you meet a Venezuelan named Serima - she changes lives.
Ra'wan. Not Ra'ud!!!
Love how they display all the goodies on the counter. The baccala was bangin!
Good romantic spot for a drink. If it's too dark for you to see the menu, resist the urge to use your phone flashlight. Please.
Order any wine from Puglia and Friuli, you won't be disappointed
Walnut pesto crostini, Brussels sprouts salad...delicious.
Get a table in the back of the bar. Intimate, cozy and quaint - major atmosphere points
Sit outside in the garden while weather permits!
Great wines by the glass + super flavorful small plates.
Where else can you get wild boar and rabbit at 1am?
Secret garden in the back makes this the perfect date spot...for you and your girlfriends. Walnut pesto crostini is delicious.
Walnut Pesto Crustini! Heaven.
Beautiful garden space in the back! Delicious tapas (especially the crostini and anything else topped with pecorino). Thoroughly enjoyed my prosecco and stuck with it the entire evening!
Almost all the kitchen work are done at the wine bar :)
I love their mini toast ❤
Really good coffee here!!
Great knowledgable bartenders, but the music is ear-splittingly loud on a Thursday night.
Perfect neighborhood spot. Brunch, glass of wine, dinner... You name it, all delicious for a solid price
Italian, small plates so great for sharing.
Fantastic place to get a quiet drink. Secret garden in the back...with mulch!!
Arugula Pesto Crostini were delicious
So good yet still hungry...argh greedy guts.
good wine. phenomenal music. great spot for a pre-dinner glass in the village.
Anchovies and butter
Great place for a drink before dinner. They have a bowl of walnuts and hazelnuts for you to crack open with a nutcracker - like a high class bag of peanuts.
chicken liver pate
bacon-wrapped dates, dark-chocolate-chip cookies with sea salt, crostini, cheeses
Cute patio. Good Italian wines. Yum
Everything is delicious! If you get there on an off hour, you pretty much have the whole place to yourself or the back garden. Cafe by day, wine bar by night.
Order the Cafe Latte and you will be impressed
Gents who care: loads of ladies here.
Cleanse your palate with one of the complimentary crabapples on the bar.
