Formaggio Wine Bar. All but invisible on the back side of a strip mall, this wine bar is going for an Italian catacomb feel, with dim lighting and soft, warm tones. Choose a small sip or an entire bottle from the extensive wine list, then enjoy the music and ponder the small-dish menu of pizzas, panini, and hot and cold specialties such as eggplant Napoleon and melting short ribs in red wine.
