Inspired by a charming little restaurant that Enoteca’s owners visited in Italy, where the menu was simple, the decor unpretentious and great food and wine was shared around the table among family and friends. Aiming to bring a piece of this Italian charm to Southampton, Enoteca serves up sharing plates and charcuterie boards as well as a handpicked list of Italian wines. You’ll find it located on Bedford Place right in the city centre – book a table now for an authentic Italian experience.
Enoteca is not a restaurant. It is a tapas cafe with a very short menu. My experience was disappointing. Order of cheeses and salami sharing platter never turned up. Wine ordered, D'avola, turned out to be the same as I have at home, with a mark up of £ 400%. That's way too much. Won't be going there again.
Always superb. We keep coming back and have never once been disappointed. The small but perfectly formed menu changes regularly and each new dish is beautiful and tasty. The service is always with a smile.
Excellent service, extremely friendly staff and delicious food. Portions were small, but we went on a pasta tasting evening. Would like to see more options on the pasta tasting evenings, perhaps a mix of dishes to really show off the menu choices, would happily pay more for more food. I've been before on a normal evening and couldn't fault it. Lovely restaurant.
Southampton may have no shortage of great Italian restaurants, but Enoteca is a name that certainly stands out among the rest. Instead of the usual pizza and pasta offerings, Enoteca specialise in small sharing plates and boards, making it the perfect place for a communal dining experience with family or friends. Tuck into a platter of Italian cheeses and cured meats, or share some small tapas-style dishes like the polpettine (juicy Italian meatballs in your choice of classic or spicy sauce), prosciutto wrapped prawns, aubergine and parmesan rolls and griddled lamb cutlets.
Be sure to leave room for dessert though, because you won’t want to miss out on Enoteca’s homemade tiramisu. Whether it’s for a romantic date or a family meal, Enoteca’s charming atmosphere and low-key vibe make it the perfect choice, attracting lovers of Italian cuisine from all over the city to its location on Bedford Place in the city centre. To guarantee a table at this Southampton favourite, making a reservation in advance is strongly recommended.
