“Go here for happy hour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2013

We are critical reviewers of lots of places. Vinoteca Farfalle is one of those spots where the happy hour is absolutely amazing.

In LA - a dozen amazing oysters for $18.

Big pours of great wine, segmented by $5 glasses, $6 glasses, and $8 glasses.

Incredibly thin crust pizza with fresh ingredients for $8.

A great atmosphere with great service. If you like dark woods, brick walls, intimate candlelit settings, then I guess you may like this location. We love it. It's a once a week event.

“Great bar scene, happy hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2013

We must admit, we love happy hours, and this is one of LA's best. Obviously other people think so too. It is always (pleasantly) crowded. Very nice small plates, and one of the best selections around of wine by the glass. Known by some (younger folks) in our family as "dark bar." We don't find it that dark. We love it. This is not a review of the restaurant, but simply of the bar happy hour.

“Good evening out with wife and friends!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2011

Found the restaraunt via Trip Advisor when searching for places "near the Greek Theatre.". Perfect start before the Goo Goo Dolls. Food was great and ambiance even better. Food is more (my pallette) Brazillian then Italian. Wife's risotto with mushrooms was great. My steak too. Had the antipasta and together with 2 entrees, enough for 4.

“Nice place for a Friday afternoon happy hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2010

A friend and I were looking for a place to get together for a Friday afternoon happy hour and I hit on Vintoteca Farfalla. The reviews were pretty good and the 4:30-7pm happy hour sealed the deal. As other have comments elsewhere, the space is very dark, but otherwise nice. We got there right around opening time and the place was empty but it soon filled up. Our server was lovely... we followed her recommendations for food (the ceviche, empanadas, pizza with arugula) and were quite happy. Not outstanding food, but really quite good. I'd been thinking of going to one of two recently opened places on Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood proper but was put off by comments on the web about the "attitude" of the servers. This certainly wasn't the case at Vinoteca Farfalla, where we couldn't have been treated more hospitably and made to feel more welcome. I'd definitely return here, maybe not on a Friday as the place is very popular and got a bit loud toward the end.

Cozy neighborhood wine bar. Love it. Great selection of wines, very nice ambiance, and delish food from Tropicalia next door.
