This friendly, classy Rockridge wine bar serves up a rotating, seasonal menu of tasty Italian snacks along with the vino: creamy chickpea fries, three kinds of crostini, salumi and cheese, a hearty Tuscan white bean soup, polenta cakes with mushroom ragu. There are also four imaginative varieties of house-made pasta daily (try the rigatoni with mint and swordfish). Yummy panna cotta for dessert; cozy ambience; stellar all-Italian wine list.
