Jazz trumpeter Luca Fadda and his wife, Giorgia Zedda, are taking an improvisational approach to their wine bar, Epistrophy, named after the Thelonious Monk song. It’s a work-in-progress with inexpensive wines—mostly from Italy—available by the glass, carafe or bottle. The arty crowd, which gathers to munch on cheese and olives, also partakes of European-style breakfasts (coffee and croissants), light lunches (salad, soup and panini) and daily pasta specials.

I take myself on one really nice dinner date once a month. If you're not going to treat yo' self than who is? I decided to check out Epistrophy which was highly recommended to me by a good friend (thank you, Dimitri). What an enchanting little spot! More than anything, I love the ambiance of this place. While I was seated outside to wait for an indoor table, I enjoyed a Spritz which was just as delicious as any that I had sipped on in Capri. The interior of the restaurant is charming and cozy. The Calamari e Funghi included seared fresh squids and mushrooms in extra virgin olive oil and lemon. Delizioso! Head to Epistrophy for a homey feeling and Italian fare.
Friendliest bartenders in town! Amazing prosecco, a mean avocado toast and a whimsical interior. Not to be overlooked!
Cool without trying too hard, amazing food, great wine, affordable and always a good vibe. There is nothing not to LOVE about this place. Also you can sit there for hours drinking vino!
