The owner/chef visited with us at our table, our waiter was attentive but not hovering. Both the food & service was excellent. I will definitely return. A more unique Italian restaurant which features wine pairings with food.

terrible experience.....they took the order and started delivering food than said the groupon had been already redeemed which it had not....then charged like crazy for what had been ordered!!!!! Then I get an email asking how the meal at Onotria was that we had just redeemed even though they had refused to redeem it.....so we are out well over $100 and the portion that was eaten and paid for was not good!!!! Extremely bad experience!!!!

Take advantage of their incredible knowledge about wine, particularly with respect to pairing.

The Chef's Special Table menu was special in every way. From the taste-of-4 appetizers through choice of two special salads, choice of 4 enticing entries, and another taste-of-4 desserts, it was a delicious and fun dinner for 4 of us. Very pleased with our entire evening. And, the personal attention from Master Chef Massimo was a delight. He is truly a one-of-a-kind person who loves people, food, and humor. Thanks to all for the best evening in many moons. Evie

From Our Editors

To Master Chef Massimo Navarretta—who grew up farming and wine-making in Campania, Italy—it makes little sense to separate wine from food. At his eatery Onotria, which received Wine Spectator's Best of Award of Excellence in 2011 and 2012, he groups dishes on the menu by wine pairing, rather than by main ingredient or ability to be balanced on the tip of a tiny dessert spoon. Seafood-based plates, such as prosciutto-wrapped tiger shrimp or poached octopus with artichokes, complement a glass of dry, sparkling white wine. Lightly breaded pork medallions accompany a light, dry red, while hearty lamb chops or filet go with a bolder varietal such as zinfandel or merlot. These dishes can serve as tasting plates for groups, entrees for individuals, or finger food for visiting giants.

To create the seasonal menu, the kitchen uses hormone- and antibiotic-free meats, as well as organic and biodynamic ingredients. Meals are served under a high-peaked ceiling with wooden rafters, in a dining room with exposed-brick columns and mottled walls that echo the look of an old-country trattoria.
