Trattoria di Vino
This venue is closed.
Trattoria di Vino is a brick-walled, wood-filled restaurant that hangs its hat on an extensive wine selection. The cellar is Italian-focused, nicely priced, and bottles are remarkably well described on the ring-bound wine list — if not necessarily by the server who told us a Pinot Grigio tasted "like, you know, Pinot Grigio." The food is not as much of a sure thing as the drink; stick to the small plates for your best chance at success. Chef Kevin Garcia’s antipasti, contorni, carpaccios, and salads are inventive and sharp, but the entree preparations — listless poached cod, mysteriously flavorless spaghetti alla carbonara — aren't worth table space that could otherwise be filled with plates of addictively tart deep-fried brussels sprouts, onion-spiked discs of tuna tartare, or a perfectly chewy black truffle-robiola pizza. The cream-draped ricotta cheesecake, sprinkled with salty-sweet fennel brittle and orange-spiked caramel, is a perfect pairing for those last few sips of wine.
