nice place – We met some friends here for a quick drink before going to a night club - it was great - good service and very relaxed atmosphere. Nice to finally have a good wine bar close by.
Amazing selection and ambience – Great place to bring family. My husband and I love it! Wine can be a bit pricey. but everything selected was very reasonable. Just a nice place to drink. We loooove wine.
My fav local spot! – I use to live on 90th and 2nd so I spent many an evening at Cavatappo. Recently I moved 10 blocks south and decided to try some new wine bars... nothing compares to the this place though. Although it is small and can be a little crowded sometimes it is by far worth it. The staff is so nice and welcomes people asking for suggestions. They truly want you to have a wonderful time. It is nice to sit outside in the summer but offers a cozy atmosphere inside during the winter months. Perfect for meeting a friend or a date because it is a very calming atmosphere. The food is simple but delicious along with an impressive wine list. I always get the cheese plate and mixed olives, although there are many great choices. I definitely suggest checking this place out and promise it will be come one of your local favs too!
Lovely!! – This wine bar it's a cozy gem on the UES... great for a date or just to end any day with a good glass of wine (love the Montepulciano). The bruschettas are awesome and the cheese plater too. The music and the service is really good.
Romantic, great wines, tasty tapas. Perfect date place.
Lots of character.
A little small, but that's okay. Very knowledgeable staff.
Small Upper West Side wine bar induces calm and conversation. – The Scene
So small it barely fits 20 people comfortably, this mini slice of the Upper East Side is dedicated to fine wines. Mirrors strewn throughout make a valient attempt at enlarging the space, while tiny touches include a collection of vintage and oversized corkscrews bedecking the orange and exposed brick walls, and bottles stacked ceiling-high.
For the amateur, a helpful menu separates wine into tangible categories--"full-bodied and robust" like the '98 Shiraz or "floral and aromatic" like the '03 Pinot Grigio. With eager-to-please bartenders that also allow a taste test or two and then pour your pick generously, the experience is especially relaxed and mellow. The young local crowd engages themselves entirely in talk, with Top 40 tunes barely in the background, playing softly from overhead speakers.
A gem! – Small yet inviting! Wonderful knowledgeable staff. A very enjoyable evening!
