Quality wine AND food in a vibrant neighborhood setting
Our team cares passionately about sharing our love for quality, accessible products. From our whole-animal butchery program to our extensive by-the-glass wine list, from a seasonally rotating menu that still features reliable favorites to a wide selection of vermouths, amari, and craft cocktails, every offering is carefully considered as a part of the whole.
Between our dining room, Plaza with bocce court, front patio, inside bar, and private event space, we are confident we can find a place to make you comfortable. We care as much about our relationships with our customers as we do about our relationships with our local suppliers. Vinoteca is a part of the neighborhood.
