This cute Italian wine bar in midtown is a great place to grab a drink after work. The place is tiny and very popular, so the key is to get there early.
The bartender will not let you sit at the bar unless you are ordering food. I am always hungry, so no problem there. The food here is also surprisingly good! We enjoyed everything we ordered.
Generous portion of octopus, which I appreciate. I am sick of restaurants that charges $16 for 2 small octopus tentacles. Octopus is not THAT much of a delicacy.
