Extremely personable and hospitable staff, delicious meal, awesome wine made for a perfect night out. Special mention to Nader for his attentiveness and wine knowledge. Additionally Aidan was professional, efficient and extremely pleasant. We will return soon. Looking forward to it.

Food was excellent, and server was very nice. I realize the current challenges, but it would have been great if they hadn’t run out of gas for the heaters for the outside tables.
We’re looking forward to going back inside!

Good is unreal!
Never disappoints. The wait staff is excellent and attentive. They work to find you a table. Some of the best wines in Boston. Great fall setting outside. Heaters are toasty.
Wonderful dining experience!

The menu is outstanding in terms of quality and presentation - I highly recommend Bin Enoteca for anyone wanting to be transported to Italy or France for a casual fine-dining experience. Another huge plus is that you can sit and indulge in your small plates for a few hours - no one is rushing you out the door!

While there was some delay in seating us, the waitress was very nice and funny and the food was delicious. Charles street is so nice in the fall, especially without tourists because of COVID. It was a lovely little dinner spot.

Tried Bin 26 Enoteca for the first time last night... we're avoiding indoor restaurants these days and were glad to find this pleasant-looking outdoor spot nearby. It was a warm evening, but they also have outdoor heaters ready, which will be welcome later.
We didn't get the best start, as we were greeted preremptorily but the server became more pleasant after we got settled. It was busy, but not bustling, so we got adequate service, if rather brusque. We shared 6 small plates (for two) and found the skewered shrimp with salad and the spaghetti both very good. The other items ( bruschetta, Speck flatbread, mussels and eggplant) were just OK, under-seasoned (which I remember as Bina characteristic from Lala Rokh) and not that special. Overall, no complaint, but a bit pricey for the overall experience. Whether I'd recommend depends on to whom; let's say yes, while outdoor options are limited.

Hmm. So the ambience and wines were just great. The only thing that left a sour taste? Asking server to recommend wine, them picking the most expensive (which we didn’t realize), us asking for a bottle to take home (normally folks try to keep this within 2x Retail), bottle sold to us for over 4x retail at literally 5x the price of the glass. We didn’t think to check ahead of time as this has not been our typical experience. Still worth a 20% tip (including on the to go bottle) - so still a wonderfully superior and recommended experience. Just ask for the price is all :)

An impromptu getaway for our anniversary and we ended up at Bin 26. We did a “sampler” of sorts with the pasta dishes and so glad we did. The food was great and the staff was equally as delightful (minus the squeaky shoes...joke!). This was an evening we will remember and one I’m sure we will come back for again.

Sitting outside, nicely spaced from other diners. The food was delivered with same high quality and eye appeal that they are known for. Our waiter, Adam, was personal, attentive, and engaging. Smaller portion options were more than ample. Outdoor dining experience was excellent.

We loved this place so much, we ate there two nights in a row! And I'm sure we'll be back again before our stay in Boston is over. Wonderful service and terrific food. We wanted to try something new wine-wise, and our server made the perfect recommendation. I highly recommend it.

Service not friendly. Not asked What size glass of wine we were like so we were given the largest size and the most expensive and we were not informed of this. Manager did make adjustments at the end on the bill to compensate.

But please don’t take table reservations to 8:30 pm while you plan to close 9pm. 30 min to eat dinner felt like restaurant is closing on us. Thanks!

We had a good experience overall—very friendly and attentive staff. The food was good but definitely overpriced but taking I to consideration the recent shut down, we didn’t really mind.

Our first night out since March. We ate on the brand new patio. We felt perfectly safe and the food was delicious as always. Our server, Nader, was very attentive, friendly, and always masked. He recommended a wonderful wine when our first choice wasn't available. We ate two old favs (eggplant parm and zucchini carpaccio) and two specials (buffalo mozz Caprese salad and pasta fruitti di mare). We ended the meal with tiramisu and a cannolo and two cups of decaf espresso (thanks, Nader, for really giving us decaf!)

Overall, a good experience with good food and wine. One complaint - between courses, I switched from white to red wine. However, the waiter used the same glass for both. He should have brought a new glass for the red wine. Otherwise, a nice dining experience.
