Took forever to get service and get served. The soup was lukewarm at best. The original portion was only 1/2 bowl. I remarked to the waiter and more soup was brought.

We are regulars here and love the food but this night we had the worst service ever. Hoping it was just an off night.

My first experience, with 5 other women, at Enoteca Rossa was outstanding. Background music was not overpowering, food was excellent, service was not rushed. We will definitely be back and will highly recommend it to friends.

I've been many times and they never disappoint. My favorites are the arancini and every single pizza. This visit was my first time trying the calamari and it was very tender. Wine list is extensive, but I would like a larger specialty drink list.

My girlfriend and I’d favorite date night go-to spot! If you love good Italian traditional dishes, a phenomenal wine selection, and great staff service, this is the neighborhood gem you want to go to.

Brian, the owner, has an amazing restaurant and experience going on there. He runs a Wine Circle on the first and third Tuesday of every month. He also loves returning patrons.

Enoteca is one of our favorite local restaurants for a tasty Italian meal. Friday night we enjoyed burrata salad, appetizer sausage & peppers & the salmon. All were delicious. Our friends had a pizza and a pasta dish, both looked great.

We requested a “quiet” table, and tho we were seated in a corner table, I’m just not sure there IS a quiet table in the restaurant. Happy to see them doing so well, and we always return because the food is so good. Have eaten outside previously perhaps when it gets cooler, we’ll try for that.

I can't say enough about this restaurant! It is one of our absolute favorites and a real treasure. The service and ambience are always outstanding. The food is wonderful, full of flavors and variety. When I dug into the scallops special tonight with the side of cauliflower mash, I was in heaven. The wine selection is good and has a range of prices. It's every or every other week occasion for us!

The waitress was great as was the food and wine. We requested a booth and actually were able to get one! I just wish the restaurant was not so noisy. We actually could not hear the waitress when she was trying to tell us about the specials! I still would recommend this place but be prepared to talk very loudly to your dinner companions!!

Wonderful food with great service. Had the branzini which was delicious. Everyone had something different, so lots of sharing. Polenta and risotto were musts. Service was so friendly. Felt like family.

I’ve been here several times. Very disappointed in the service. We were there 20 minutes and the server had barely taken our drink order. The waiter proceeded to wait on two other tables that came in after we did. We finally paid the bill and left. By the time he came to take the order, we were paying the tab.

Just out with friends. Food and service were excellent as always but it was very loud in the restaurant and difficult to have a conversation. Love this place but wish they would get some rugs or other sound abatement.

Love the happy hour pizza and wine deal. We enjoy watching the Astros too, which are usually featured at the bar TVs, & we sit where we can view while enjoying table service. Always friendly service . Neighborhood gem...and we aren’t even in the neighborhood!

While this is a relatively small place, it's very noisy for the older generation who's hard of hearing, even with hearing aids on. The place was maybe half full on a recent Saturday night and my wife and I had trouble hearing each other, sitting next to each other. There's carpeting on most of the floor area but still..........

Would go there more often if not so noisy.

My daughter and I went to Enotecca Rossa for a girl's evening out. Everything we had was fabulous! We had the baked brie and the calamari as an appetizer and the portions were enough to be satisfying, but not so overwhelming that they ruin your appetite. For entrees, we had the ravioli with goat cheese, and the fettucine with lamb ragu. Again, everything was wonderful. The chocolate hazelnut dessert was amazing as well! We will definitely return! My only, very, very small issue was the presence of mushrooms in nearly every dish. I don't mind them, but several people I eat out with don't like mushrooms so their choices might be limited here.

Our waitress/hostess was excellent- personable, professional and really took care of us. The only complaint is that the restaurant is pretty plain and so dark as you get to the back. Then you have a view of the area behind the counter.

The linguini and risotto were very good. Our go to dish, the short rib ravioli, however was disappointing. The meat, rather than having that short rib texture and consistency was ground up into a pasty mess which really detracted from the dish.
