Phoenix New Times' Description

This uniquely elegant wine bar and restaurant (its name means "wine merchant" in Italian) serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Chef James Bacon prides himself on a talent for pairing food and wine, and it's evident at this family-owned downtown Mesa staple. Start with the Share Platter, a mélange of roasted vegetables, olives, artichokes, caper berries and soppressata. Follow that with a Caprese Salad with grape tomatoes, Mozzarella, basil and arugula and drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Fans of fresh game will love the Half-Pound Free Range Nilgai Antelope Burger, served with house-cut fries and corn salad, or the Buttered Gnocchi with Duck Sausage, accompanied with zucchini, mushrooms, tomato and delicious herb pan sauce. Have the waiter select a wine flight to accompany your meal, and you'll leave happy.

    Wine is great. Friends abound.

    cute atmosphere and tasty entrees. entrees are large enough to split between two people.
