Oh, how many times have we been to Enoteca Vespaio? Too many to count. We go for the calamari, and stay for everything else.
Sometimes we sit on the patio. Enjoying happy hour, eating calamari, drinking some wine or sharing a bottle of Peroni, and then deciding to extend our meal with pasta.
On our wedding anniversary last year, we walked over for dinner to enjoy calamari, then I ordered their bolognese (a classic!), Josh got their special (also usually a winner), and we had gelato for dessert.
We sometimes go for dinner with a neighbor and sit indoors, making use of their full bar, and trying things we don’t usually. And then finding out our neighbor goes to Enoteca even more than us, and seems to know everyone there.
It’s our neighborhood Italian place. And it’s so delicious.
