In Vino

An amazing hole in the wall wine bar located in New York's East Village, In Vino offers one of the largest selections of Italian quality wines in NYC, topping out at 189 different kinds of vino! Not only is the wine fantastic, the menu boasts authentically fresh Italian dishes and the servers are geniuses when it comes to pairing your entrees and cheese plates with your wine.
And when I say hole in the wall, I mean it, the restaurant is really a cozy cave-like venue that makes for a really intimate setting.
I recommend ordering a cheese plate, using your server's recommendation and try some of their homemade pastas like the Gnocchi Bianco o Rosso (homemade gnocchi in a gorgonzola sauce with walnuts or with marinara sauce, mozzarella and basil).
One of my favorite thing about the owners of In Vino is that they actually take the time to help make their patron's experience more personal. Taking advantage of social media, owners Angus, Keith and David write their own blog, East Village Wine Geek and give fans a tour and a complete overview of their restaurant in this video on CitySearch.

Located on 4th St between Avenues A & B. Open every day from 5pm-11pm and until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights.
