    I really wanted to LOVE this restaurant but instead, I liked it. Overall, the food was good. The atmosphere seems off. The lights were very bright, the sound system was either playing weird/inappropriate music or had some type of "talk radio" on (who wants to listen to people talking over the sound system at a restaurant??). One of the window shades was hanging off its roller. The dining space seems almost "cafeteria like"......it does not have the cool feeling of the restaurant formerly in this space. Our server was very friendly and pretty knowledgeable. There are equally as good Italian restaurants in Dallas with much nicer interiors.

    I was very excited to finally try Enoteca and will certainly return. I love that it is a family- owned restaurant and they REALLY care about your experience. I went with a friend, we shared everything and the portions were generous but not over the top. The cacio e pepe pasta - we added fennel sausage was delicious. I did not ask if the pasta was homemade, but it certainly tasted like it and it was cooked perfectly. The Cesear salad was good as well. We ordered the wild mushroom and leek pizza and it was very flavorful, but we both agreed that the crust needed to be cooked more. Next time I will request such. I do suggest that their bartender brush up on their dirty martinis, and that their wait people be sure to communicate a drink request better and deliver it when it is ready, so that when it comes out the ice on top is not already melted. I know I am specific with regard to how I like my martinis, but it took 4 tries and still wasn't right. It was a comfortable and casual setting and although the restaurant was busy, it was not noisy. I look forward to continuing to try additional dishes there and seeing the delightful owners again.

    This is a pretty place with great windows. The food was amazing. I have brussel sprouts every place that has them, but, these were by far my favorite! My husband had the burrata salad that was so pretty on the plate and very tasty. I had pasta and he had short ribs and we enjoyed both! It was a great dinner out.

    From the moment we arrived the entire staff was very accommodating. Turns out it's a family business, and the family is personally involved ~ and it shows! The Pappardelle was one of the best recipes I've ever tried, and I've tried quite a few, including in Italy. The seared octopus was also better than any in the area. We cannot wait to visit again!

    I was very excited to try this new restaurant as someone who is a fan of all things Italian and wine. The food was okay, some of our group enjoyed their dishes, others did not. Chicken parmesan was bland with watery sauce. The service was definitely lacking both from a standpoint of speed and knowledge. Don't bother ordering a cocktail when the bar is busy as the bartenders are more worried about serving the people at the bar then getting drinks out to the tables. Lastly, for a place with Enoteca in the name I was very disappointed in the wine list. Options were limited, outside the Pet Nat the creativity was low. They don't list vintages on the wine list which is very strange, it says to ask the server but my server had no idea. There are many excellent Italian restaurants in Dallas, this is not one of them.

    We came here on a Thursday night to celebrate our anniversary. The food was terrific, authentic Italian and the service was impeccable. The focaccia is not your typical. The layer of creamy cheese takes it up a notch. The house made sausage in the rigatoni is fantastic and the limoncello mascarpone dessert completed the fabulous meal. The complimentary glasses of Prosecco for our anniversary was a nice touch and we enjoyed meeting chef and owner Alban and his wife. Also nice that it is just around the corner from the Warwick Melrose hotel where we were staying.

    We love Enotecha Italia. We just returned from two weeks in Italy and we were not wanting to end our memories. So we wanted to come back and enjoy this gem of an authentic family owned and run restaurant. The food is fresh and delicious. The staff is wonderful. It has the real feel of a family run Italian restaurant- because it is. You must order focaccia! Whatever else you select (all wonderful) - but focaccia will immediately put you right in Italy! Enjoy! Grazie Mille to the owners and staff for making this restaurant so wonderful!

    The seating and reservations were very easy and quickly done. The staff was friendly from start to finish, and helpful on the menu recommendations. The meat and cheese starter, cacio Pepe, lasagna, and carne pizza are absolutely delicious! Price is what it is, specially in today’s inflationary costs. We will be back.

    2nd visit to Enoteca. Took a friend to introduce him to this place. Great wine. The Ricotta Spread is ‘eat with a spoon’ good! Rigatoni Salsiccia… phenomenal! And, to be able to finish everything off with a 20 yr port was the perfect ending. Can’t wait for visit #3!

    Upscale Italian restaurant located in the heart of Oak Lawn in Uptown Dallas. The atmosphere was very enjoyable while the food was quite good. However, be forewarned that this place emphasizes quality over quantity, which is a good thing. You can really tell that the ingredients used were fresh and the food was cooked with care. This is a great place for a nice family meal.

    I selected Enoteca for mother's day due to the awesome reviews and overall it was just an ok experience. I saw from previous comments and photos that the portions are huge, I would disagree, unless they recently made some reductions to thier plates and from what we could see online. We ordered the seafood pasta w/black ink, shrimp pasta, chicken parm, Carne pizza, blonde brownie dessert, and Gelato assortment. We also ordered the fociatta but it never came so we canceled it. The waitresses felt bad but brought us a half melted cup of gelato to make up for the mistake. It was a nice gesture but a little weird because it was half melted. They sat us unfortunately in the sunlight which wouldn't have been so bad but that day thier AC must have been broken because it was hot (like everyone was sweating) including the waitresses. When we received our appetizer plates two of them had food still on them. I asked my waitresses to please swap it out and she said "what wrong with it?" I then pointed to the food and then she said "oh, ok I see it now." All of our dishes tasted great but again the portions for the shrimp and seafood pasta was really small and nothing like the photos we saw prior or even some of the comments. The pizza and chicken parm had decent portions. The blonde brownie dessert was the highlight of the dinner but I would skip the Gelato "assortment" as it is just a scoop of Gelato (the description makes it seem like you would get a couple flavors or something along with the Gelato) but it was just one scoop of Gelato for $7. I gave the overall experience a 3 star because the food tasted great and I'm sure the staff was a little overwhelmed because it was mother's day and there might have been an AC issue that was out of thier control.
