Fodor's Review

This impressive wine bar matches sleek, modern decor with creative cuisine and three dozen wines available by the glass. The house specialty is marinated meat and fish, but you can also get cheeses, smoked meats, and composed salads. Try a risotto or the braised oxtail–stuffed tortelli in a celery sauce for primo, and monkfish alla cacciatora with bitter Roman puntarelle (a type of chicory) for secondo. For dessert, the molten chocolate cake with banana cream is outstanding.
