There were very few customers in the restaurant. Service was OK, but the waiter was totally unfamiliar with the wines and the food choices. There was live music, which thankfully was not too loud. The food was average.

First time to this wine bar. A little dark inside the bartender and manager were very attentive. Large menu but small food prep area that is open with a double oven. The pizza was average. Impressive wine list but pricey.

No reservations were needed, even arriving at 7:00pm. Formaggio is dimly light and provides this great ambiance,...More
