    Great pizza and delicious, unique pastas in an easy but refined atmosphere. Grab a drink at the bar before dinner.

    Good pasta! The pizza was good, however nothing I would go back for. It was probably the worst service I had experienced in a long time.

    Their kale cauliflower pizza was very creative and incredibly delicious! A bit too salty but still a great meal. Would definitely order if vegetarian

    Amazing mushroom theme restaurant . Even have mushroom dessert. Tagliatelle was a hit, pizza was good but spicy, cod tasted healthy but bland

    Excellent salumi ,pasta and pizza along with knowledgeable staff. AVOID the California lamb. Lamb and California are gastronomic oxymorons.....
  • Kelly M.
    Loved their polenta with gorgonzola and the mixed lettuces with meyer lemon vinaigrette. The vibe is energetic and effusive. Going to get the pizza next!

    After finding a delicious Mediterranean alternative, Tarla, a few doors down - the locals told us Oenotri is like the Lindsey Lohan of restaurants, promising but now a train wreck of bad service. True

    We were told if we arrived by 9:30 we would be served - we rushed and arrived at 9:25 but the dismissive host rudely told us we would not be served, while the restaurant was at ~80% occupancy. Avoid.
