The wine bar at Enotria is open, with an eye on Valentine's Day

By Allen Pierleoni

After a 10-month-long, $1.5 million expansion and renovation, the pioneering Enotria Restaurant and Wine Bar opened today. The wine bar hosted a successful soft opening last week.

Though the formal dining room won't be serving until early February - to be marked with a grand opening - the diverse wine-bar menu now offers lunch and dinner - from soup, salad and small plates, to pasta, fish and rack of lamb. Enotria's motto: "Food made for wine made for food."

The art-deco wine bar hours are 11:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, 5 to 11 p.m. Saturdays, and 4:30 to 9 p.m. Sundays.

Enotria has plans for a special prix fixe dinner (5 to 9 p.m.) over the Valentine's Day weekend (Feb. 11 to 14). It's suggested that couples linger over dinner and candlelight in the main dining room, while singles may enjoy a more casual menu and less formal setting in the wine bar. For reservations: (916) 922-6792.

"The idea is there's something for everybody," said Enotria public-relations consultant Nancy Mallory. "You may even meet the love of your life."

Enotria is at 1431 Del Paso Blvd., Sacramento. Visit its website at
