Less than $25 (average dinner bill for 2 excluding alcohol)

A sleek Italian wine and panini bar with 40 wines by the glass and half glass, 80 by the bottle, and all available for retail sale at 35% less. Authentic menu with bruschette, salads, panini, cheese and salumi plates, desserts, and espresso.

The HooK
enoteca, an italian wine and panini bar, is a round-trip ticket to Italy at a fraction of the price. With 40 wines by the glass and 80 by the bottle, enoteca’s wine list highlights the best of italy’s 2000+ grape varietals from its 20 wine-growing regions. With barely manipulated regional food, enoteca is a chic yet casual eating, drinking, and meeting place modeled after the enoteche of Italy that are at the center of italian culture. diners can experiment with ancient indigenous varietals like aglianico or try italy‘s old-world take on familiar varietals such as chardonnay. paired with tempting bruschette, regional cheeses and meats, seasonal salads, warm and gooey panini, and delectable desserts, the combination becomes something greater than the sum of its parts. A patio piazza and a retail wine shop make enoteca a must-stop for anyone in Charlottesville, residents and tourists alike.

Great Food and Wine, perfect eveningenoteca

Reviewed by Nick on Jan 6th, 2009

I was surprised how affordable "dinner" was after a couple glasses of wine and some appetizers. The food is really well done and filling - it also goes perfectly with the wine, which is explained well in the menu. I tried a number of their selections, and was happy with all of my selections.

Really enjoyed the atmosphere too. If you can go during the warmer months, it is great to sit outside.
