    It was very quiet in the restaurant on a Sunday evening, but that meant very attentive service and personal attention. Sam, our waiter, was great. Wine bar was not as extensive as I would have thought for a wine bar, but it had some variety. Food was yummy... shared the brussels sprouts, dates, a warm kale/white bean salad, the white flat bread... and their decadent chocolate dessert. Everything was really tasty. Bonus: there's parking at the back!

    I love going to Vintage. The small plates are really delicious, including some of the most memorable flatbreads I've ever tasted. And I particularly love how the owners are not snobby about their wines. They're genuinely interested in finding out what you like and introducing you to wines that'll match your taste profile. How many restaurants do you know that are genuinely happy to let you taste a few glasses before you make your wine choice? Oh, and I should add I've always been impressed and often surprised by the wines to which I was introduced at Vintage. Just delighted that this place exists only a few blocks from my house. OH, and people! There's always plenty of parking in the back!

    I discovered Vintage Enoteca when I was researching places for dinner prior to a comedy show at the near by Meltdown Comics. After reviewing the extensive menu and reading all of the positive Yelp reviews, I was sold! I brought my wife and our two friends for some pre-show drinks and snacks. All 4 of us were blown away by the food, drink list and service. We have all agreed to come back ASAP!

    Cute place, excellent service, didn't feel rushed or hurried. Great for the first date, able to talk and be comfortable. My only wish is that they had couches inside as well. If you are a fan of crab, you must try the crab bruschetta, heaping mounds of succulent crab...oh so good!

    Very nice spot for light fare and good wine. We had a cheese plate with some nice cheeses and a delicious jam and toast. The farro salad was nice but could have used a bit more farro and less lettuce but it was yummy. The goat cheese and peas are a nice touch. The articholk was ok. A little undercooked for my taste but the aoli sauce was very good. For dessert, we had a delicious,but ugly chocolate cake. It tasted wonderful but it wasn't the most appetizing presentation.

    We got a few items off the happy hour menu we would have ordered anyway. The crab mac and cheese and flatbread are sooo yummy. The farro salad was hearty but light. The deviled eggs were very creamy, but wish it had more caviar for more of a bite!

    All of my experiences at Vintage have been great. The menu is great - lots of small plates and other items that are great for sharing. When this place is full, it can get noisy, which might not be the best for a super-romantic evening, but the ambiance is very nice! Knowledgeable and super-friendly servers who will take care of you! Definitely will be back.

    Fourth visit, always very tasty, great service. Not a large dining area so if you absolutely want a table, make a reservation. Free parking out back in a shared lot. Best for groups of four people and under, I think. They offer good advice on choosing wines and cheeses.

    We went to Vintage Enoteca hoping for a true Italian neighborhood gem. Unfortunately, we were largely disappointed. The food was mostly lackluster; limp flatbread with a sauce that tasted canned topped with anemic tomatoes, a salad that included woody pea shoots, salmon tartare that had a small bone in it and unappealing texture. The mac & cheese was fine as was the chopped salad - but nothing outstanding. The seating is all tall tables which are uncomfortable, and the servers wine knowledge seemed limited. To be fair, she did allow us to sample the wine before making our selection and was very pleasant. But in the end the cost was what we've paid for outstanding meals in more inviting environments. We won't return.

The food is always wonderful, the service is smart and unobtrusive, and we love the small plates. We can taste many flavors without having a large plate of too much food. Truly a gem.

    Went here with my boyfriend and a friend of ours. The energy is great in this place. Tasty small bites and tapas. Some really delicious wines. I had a rose that was totally surprising - well-balanced, lots of fruit with a smooth mouth feel, but no heavy sweetness! It was a great sipper and paired well with the brussel sprouts and flatbread i ordered. We were on our way to a show at the Palladium or we could have lingered over good wine and conversation for hours. Will definitely be back soon!

    I don't think we ever would have found this place, but we were given a gift card. We're so thankful. We had a quiet Sunday dinner, sampling a number of small and larger plates -- each one was wonderful. The wine was reasonable and very good. Service was amazingly friendly and charming. This could easily become one of our go-to spots.

    I picked Vintage Enoteca because my husband and I had tickets for a show down the block at NerdMelt — I thought with the tapas-like menu it would be quick and light. We lucked out arriving well before our 7 pm reservation and got there in time for the end of their Happy Hour. Everything on the menu, except for fish dishes, was half price. LOVED the brussels sprouts with bacon so much that we had two orders and my husband's panini was a full meal. I had two glasses of a really tasty chardonnay. We're looking forward to coming back and working our way down the menu. Also, our server was accommodating and really friendly. We loved her.

    We came here for New Years Eve because we wanted to do something that didn't feel like the forced fun of many bar parties. Arrived early. Free parking in back. Host recognized us from my note to restaurant that we'd had our first date here. Seated immediately at a good location in the main room. Music was great - not the usual boring pop dance garbage. Tried several different wines and small plates - all delicious and not over-priced. Server was pleasant and helpful in selecting. I love this place but still wish the seating was more cozy and comfortable.

    Vintage Enoteca is a gem. They have been expanding their food offerings since they opened -- you really want to eat one of everything on the menu from the small bites, flatbreads, salads, larger plates... The wine selection is thoughtful and interesting and the staff and owner are incredibly warm, friendly, and knowledgeable in their suggestions. From a date night to a girls dinner or a small group gathering, Vintage is a perfect destination for a fun, comfortable, and just plain great experience.
