The muted palette, natural stone and dark woods add to the intimacy. You'll find an unpretentious crowd enjoying an extensive wine list.

Enoteca on Elgin opened its doors in 2005 and remains busy and buzzing for four years on. This narrow seat Mediterranean tapas and Wine car is so popular with locals and tourists that reservations should be made. Don't let this deter you from showing up unannounced though, as the friendly staff will seat you at the bar with a glass of wine until a table comes available.
Enoteca roughly translates to 'wine library' or 'wine bar'. They have been part of the Italian Mediterranean tradition since Roman times, a place to gather, relax, taste and chat amongst friends.
Enoteca offers a wide array of gourmet dishes and thin crust pizzas but it isn't just Italian antipasti and bottles of Chianti you'll find inside the menu pages, flavours and ingredients originate from all around the Mediterranean region. Greek hummus, Moroccan lamb cutlets, French goats cheese, Italian risotto balls and many others are treated to the unique treats.
