Cafe Vinoteca Restaurant Review

: This neighborhood bistro is a popular choice for a night out with family or friends; those looking for traditional Italian fare as well as people seeking something more modern will be satisfied. The focus is on locally grown, seasonal produce, quality meats, house-baked breads and homemade sauces, pastas and desserts. Starters include a butternut squash bruschetta and fried eggplant; pastas range from gnocchi with Gorgonzola cream sauce to brown rice spaghetti with Brussels sprouts; spicy bouillabaisse, seared scallops and country Italian fried chicken are among mains. Sundays through Tuesdays feature a three-course pasta special and an endless spaghetti dinner.
