    A cute, but tiny, wine bar in Midtown East - an area that could use more places like this. This is our go-to date spot, with a vast wine list and great tapas to share. We love the margherita pizza!

    I like the bubbly. I like the old skool credit card machine.- Retro always feels right!! Food to be discovered next time because its not a one time visit kind-of-place.

    The meatballs and crudo mozz (made in-house) were delish. Our waiters were friendly and personal. The ambiance is cozy and intimate with candlelight and exposed red brick. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    This wine bar located just steps away from the Affinia 50 features over 50 bottles of wine on its rotating wine list, as well as a number of delicious traditional Italian food items.

    Quaint spot away from the grind of the 53rd St. bars. Bartenders know their wine varietals. So if you don't see what you like, describe & they will get you sorted. Neighborhood place, very casual.

    Super cute wine bar to go with a girlfriend or on a date. Lots of great wine to choose from. Food a little pricey, mozzarella was fresh and worth it. Small place and fills up fast.

    Sit at the bar & chat with super friendly & helpful staff! Don't be like the guy next to me and ask for quick course on wine 5 min before your date arrives! Take your time.

    Pizza is fantastic! Spinach dip is the best in the city. The staff will pick the perfect wine for you if you tell them what you like. This place is now my go to place for dates and intimate gatherings

    Order the Prosciutto mac n' cheese with the buffalo cheese and sea salt! Order it with some red wine and you're good to go!

    Great wine spot, laid back low lit atmosphere, even if u know nothing about wine the staff there can usually guide you to a wine you will like. DON'T go with a big group 2-4max is perfect # of people.

    Great wine list. The meat and cheese plate is mostly meat not much cheese which is odd. Still good though.

    The Spinach dip and white sangria are both fantastic. Get here early for a table as the place is (pleasantly) tiny.
