    extensive wine list but most unimpressive wines curated for the cost; food is ok. draw here is the intimate ambience and wine-centric bar

    Fun wine bar in the area. Staff is great and didn't charge me for the glass of wine I had at the bar before sitting down at a table. Great date place too!

    The meat and cheese plate has a very small amount of cheese

    Kristen Peirano · January 15, 2015

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

    Cute little bar for a gathering of friends. Food was good but id like to try something other than the pizza. Staff was VERY friendly and attentive 😁

    One of my favorite places in the city! Well worth the wait! Enjoy the garden in back and make sure to save room for the Mac and cheese!

    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.

    Legit wine bar. Love Leo and Jeremy! I'll be back for more sipping and swirling, Great pizza too!

    They aren't nice [the staff] and the music is horrible!!!

    Lovely place with a sweet outdoor garden

    Food is good but the place is too small and often too crowded

    Pedro Alegria Jr. · September 21, 2013
  • Jeffrey W.

    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.

    Jeffrey Wooten · September 14, 2013
  • Shakeera D.

    The prosciutto Mac and cheese is a must here! Great combination!

    Try a Marguerite pizza with smoked pancetta, onions and arugula with a glass of Angela Pinot Noir (Oregon)...superb!!!

    Willie Chin · August 17, 2013
  • The Corcoran Group

    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!

    The Corcoran Group · July 17, 2013
  • Sarah E.

    Amazing! I tried the vast majority of the menu and everything was great!

    Sarah Elizabeth · July 12, 2013
  • Jonathan D.

    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.

  • Leonardo Quezada G.

    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.

    an oasis of candlelight, legitimate wine and solid small plates amidst the wasteland of midtown.

    Always a nice treat to have a drink here and chat with the very knowledgable staff.

  • Christine S.

    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.

    Christine Shepherd · October 27, 2012
  • Jill G.

    Amazing. The longer you stay, the more free wine they force on you. New favorite spot.

    Jill Gaynor · October 25, 2012

    Order the lambrusco and prosciutto pizza! Simply the best!
