We came here by chance as our other reservations fell through. 'Inoteca is a very unassuming nouveau rustic atmosphere with wine bottles lining the walls and a friendly staff. The food is beyond compare! I love trying different cuisines, but every dish I tried at 'Inoteca was totally unique and delicious. The dishes are all on small plates, so you can try 2-3 different things and walk out extremely satisfied for a very reasonable price. Recommended: chianti, polenta with walnuts and brussel sprouts, egg toast, and calamari. I'll be back very soon!

The group dining experience here-atmosphere is warm, food is tasty, but you leave hungry and all the poorer! The option to order for a group makes the evening easier, but very expensive. The plates are small, you 'taste' many dishes which is fun, but you spend as though you've ordered a full entre, apps, dessert and drinks, leaving your group grumbling.

High expectations for this place especially after the countless great experiences at it's sister restaurant 'ino. The menu seems virtually the same with the addition of smaller hot plates, but the value is just not the same. Plates are smaller and prices seem higher. Still, this place is a fun place to take a group of friends to share food....if you can't make it to 'ino, this is a good alternative...

Visited for a late lunch on a Saturday... service, food... everything was great. What a find. The truffle bread is stunning, and the polpette perfect. Wines are a good value.... excellent espresso.

I have been a fan of this spot for years, but alas, it is now going downhill & failing to please. New servers can be rude and rush you though the restaurant. Never used to happen before. And it appears portions are skimpier than ever-not a value. Nothing is special here anymore - a shame.

I have been to 'inoteca several times now and I always love it. It's a beautiful space with absolutely delicious food and wine, and the servers are fantastic both in actually serving but also in helping make choices among all of the food and drink options. Honestly one of my favorite spots. I recently recommended it to a friend visiting from the west coast and of all the places he went in a 5 day trip he said it stood out as his favorite. Don't miss it!

We had an awesome meal and fantastic wine and wine service here, but sadly poor food service. Our server was forgetful, unapolgetic and overall not as knowledgeable as one would expect. Still, the interesting menu and wine selections call my name. I will certainly return.
