If you like wine even a little, this is a place worth checking out. Wine can be purchased in flights, which are basically sets of four 2 ounce glasses of wine varieties such as four Chardonnays, wines of South Africa, etc. They are served with a note sheet, so you can jot down your thoughts on each so you know what to buy or avoid the next time you want to bring a truly great bottle of wine to a friend's house.
Wine is also served by the glass, and they have a large beer selection as well.
As food goes, the menu is limited, but the food is memorable. Individual pizzas with great cheeses, cheese or pate appetizers, and incredible deserts all complement the wine well. They have a shared entrance with the coffee shop of the same name, so ordering up a post-wine espresso can be done too.
Outdoor seating is available. Indoors has a bar and small tables to sit at, so it's much easier to do in groups of 4 or less unless you're able to secure an outdoor table.
