This is a good spot of wine tasting and a few choice food plates. The Lito is very nice when the weather permits. Relaxing, well furnished, good menu. A little on the pricey side though.

Right next door to Hotel James this was perfect. We just walked over and had a great meal. I had the beet and garlic humus with flat bread to start and it was delicious. The steak with bacon on a bed of mashed parsnips and potato was really nice - no room for dessert!!

The wine is great, the small plates are to die for. But as another reviewer found, not easy to get service when a huge event is happening. Beautifully done art in an interesting building. I really enjoyed the mushroom quiches and the scalloped potato stacks. Viva la chef and wine buyer!

Came with the wife in wishful anticipation of beer and sustainable sustanance early afternoon. Greeted by a flock of plaid flannel 20 somethings and dumped at a table by the door. I don't think even in Portland Oregon they dress like that in 85 degree heat. Anyway. ...everyone around us was waited on even though we arrived 15 minutes before... More

I've been a few times and the service was good twice and really bad once. Usually I'd come just for some wine and an appetizer, but I thought I'd try making a meal out of my last visit. Big mistake. While the wine is nice, the food is like the service: hit or miss. We had possibly the most disinterested... More

Delightful wine list, awesome food and a place with incredible character - a restored pig barn transformed into a beautiful restaurant. High or low tables and a great bar make this a fun little Chico hot spot. A business associate and I enjoyed the steak rumaki and amazing mushrooms. Best part was it was a one-minute walk from the Hotel... More

It's a great atmosphere to enjoy a glass of wine with friends. If you're hungry you're not going to have a meal here you're going to have a little bit of appetizer, yes it's going to be something different and yummy! It certainly won't fill you up though. The wines are delicious but the whole experience is a bit pricey... More

yes...great food and wonderful wine here !! I always had. The restaurant location is not in the downtown, but it's not different to find. For me, it's even easy because I even could walk to the restaurant... within 10 minutes. I like the atmosphere and design...at the restaurant.... I usually ordered Hummas ! and sure,...a glass of wine...

The Wine Time location is a little out of the way but worth the travel. A very pleasing atmosphere, nice decor and a place where you are able to hear the other person speaking. Small and larger plate selections all good or better (been there multiple times) and service was good also. I will be back.
