‘inoteca is a true regional Italian wine bar with two separate dining rooms. ‘inoteca’s main dining room is on the street level and has a corner location with floor to ceiling cast iron framed windows, hard wood floors and outside cafe tables.
The Cantina, our downstairs dining room, is an intimate wine cellar with vaulted ceilings and antique farm tables. Modeled after cantinas that you might find in Italy, you can enjoy a warm and rustic atmosphere surrounded by our collection of over 600 different bottles of Italian wines stored in our temperature controlled cellar. We offer fabulous regional tasting menus paired with our award winning wines for private parties or corporate events.
For parties of seven to sixteen guests, ‘inoteca does require the group to participate in our family-style party menu. Our classic party menu consists of three courses, with the option of dessert or cheese for $34 per person or dessert and cheese for $39 per person. Our heartier style party menu is a more robust version of our classic with additional “entree” — style dishes and comes with dessert and cheese for $50 per person. You may choose to have wines paired with this party menu for an additional cost of $30 per person, or you are welcome as always to order wine a la carte.
During the weekdays from 12:00pm until 4:00pm we offer our lunch party menu which consists of three courses, with the option of dessert or cheese for $25 per person or dessert and cheese for $30 per person. On the weekends we offer our brunch party menu, also three courses with the option of dessert or cheese for $19 per person or dessert and cheese for $24 per person. Brunch is offered on Saturday and Sunday from 10:00am until 4:00pm. Both menus can be enjoyed with paired wines for an additional cost of $18 per person.
