This place is a small italian place introduced to my by a friend. It was fairly difficult to find (when I went there was scaffolding right next to it obscuring the sign) Once you enter it is a small dim place, that is usually packed. The bar tenders are fantastic and make really strong drinks. When seated they are very small tables (I wouldn't suggest a large crowd here) but the food was fantastic. I am not usually a fan of gnocchi, but it is more riccota base here instead of potato, so it was light and delicious. The buffalo mozzarella app was full of flavor and very fresh. Then finally the dessert was one of their specials, I believe it was a neapolitan cake with carmel sauce. It was fantastic! Can't wait to return!

I went to Uva last night for a Valentine's day dinner. Usually on Valentine's day restaurants tend to be busier and the food/service tends to be much poorer... not here. The service was great... our server was fantastic and did a great job of handling the downstairs. I also the ambiance was great... very romantic... very appropriate for the occasion. Finally the food... Everything we ordered was fantastic. The sun-dried tomato bruschette was great, Burrata Barese was amazing and the speck was well just like speck which is always great. For the main courses we got the ravioli and the duck... both were really good especially the duck. Overall a great experience for a decent price.

I've been to Uva 4 times now, and last night was definitely the best yet. The calamari was the best we ever had, and the burrata tomato salad was amazing. Highly recommend. Service was great too and our waitress made excellent wine recommendations. Great night! We were celebrating our 6 month marriage anniversary and so glad we went to Uva!

I went to uva because I had walked by it several times and noticed its cute decor and delicious sounding menu, but I didn't really expect amazing things when I went to eat there with some friends last weekend. Verdict was, it was absolutely delicious. We had a great caprese salad, scallops, fried artichokes, and several other dishes and we loved all of them. It was a fun place to visit and definitely exceeded my expectations. My only tiny problem might be that it really was extremely dark in there -- maybe a tad brighter with those lights?

went here on a first date and loved it. I highly recommend this place because the atmosphere is romantic, they have a great wine selection and the food is fantastic. I have been dreaming about their grilled calamari since I ate it.

I cannot express in words how this place made my evening. The food, atmosphere, and the waitress were all perfect for my date last night. We had the antipasti with the all the delicious meats. For dinner we each had a pasta, both were amazing. Then we finished off with the tirimisu! All this with a bottle of red wine. Amazing wine list!! I will definitely go back. Thanks UVA!

I brought my wife here the other night and the place is comfortable enough inside so I had high hopes. We ordered the gorgonzola salad with pears and it was subpar. The pears tasted like they were marinated in acidic red wine and the gorgonzola was cheap and rubbery. I was hoping things would improve with the entrees but that wasn't the case. I noticed that at the table next to us they had ordered half orders of pasta which I thought was interesting... Until I got my "full" order and realized those are the size of the full entrees.. My wife's gnocci was congealing on the plate as if the food was just heated up from earlier. My bolognese came cold and I had to send it back.
