Del Frate Enoteca, Rome, Italy

A lot of our customers ask us about our name. Lots of us are familiar with the Italian words ristorante, trattoria, pizzeria and even osteria. Enoteca is another Italian word for a specific type of hospitality outlet which loosely translates as 'wine shop'. Many, if not most, Enoteche in Italy offer a mix of wine and good, home-made food. Some offer more wine than food whilst others, like us in Bedford Place are more food-led with a strong wine offering too. You should pop down to see us and try us out!
