I LOVE wine, and my wife and I went here because of Rick Steves gushing about the place and the "fun enoteca" owned and poured by "two guys" who share wine "with a fun-loving passion." BALONEY. We were the only two in the place around 4:00 pm, and they both looked bored as could be, barely speaking a word except... More

Go here if you enjoy a good glass of wine and some tasty finger food. The owner is a very nice and friendly guy. This place has a cozy atmosphere, great place to hang out and enjoy great wines!

We loved this place. We ordered the 3 wine tasting plus the antipasti and it was so taste. The owner was really friendly and nice and made us feel welcome. The decor is a must to see.

This was an experience, wine tasting with these wonderful men. They had a great selection to taste on the night we ventured in, and we throughly enjoyed the wines, the company and the tasty side foods. Unpretentious and relaxing.

We had a local soup (a-la riboletto), and another local dish - tripe. Both were surprisingly good too. Later we tried tripe in Rome, but it was not even close to this one. very nice wine selection, and fresh bread.

I really liked this little restaurant. We tried tripe and their bread soup. Both were delicious. Their antipasto is great, typical Italian. The wine we tried was good as well. Overall, great place for quick lunch.

We went for lunch with a small group and really enjoyed the wonderful atmosphere in the wine cellar. We enjoyed a generous tasting of three great regional wines and had a great lunch of hardy vegetable soup with bread and a plate of meat, olives and cheese. Lovely experience. Felt special and authentic.

This is a nice enoteca right across the street from the Etruscan Museum. They offer about ten wines by the glass as well as beer and coffee. They also offer cold cuts, cheese and other food. This is a great place to stop for lunch or a snack.

This place was recommended to me from my hotel and so happy that they did. It is a tiny hole in the wall wine bar and it was absolutely amazing! I tried typical Tuscany wines, cheeses and cold cuts. One of the owners that was bar tending the night i was there was so sweet and surprised me with two... More

We were thinking of having a little aperitivo before our dinner when we saw a tiny terrace with two tables at the opposite side of the local. We entered to ask if we could sit and discovered a very original place (many bras hanged on the ceiling) and thought that this place would be also worth a stop when the... More
