Enoteca Vespaio has been a quality spot for Sunday brunch, lunch, dinner and dessert since it opened in 2005. The folks there cultivate fine Italian cuisine in a pleasant setting and also have a terrific wine selection.
Dinner spot Vespaio opened in 1998, back before South Congress was such a tourist hub, while the more casual Enoteca Vespaio set up shop next door in 2005 to satisfy the demand for succulent all-day eats. You can’t go wrong with Prosciutto Pizza from Enoteca, or the Melanzana and Zucchini, layers of crispy eggplant, squash, arrabbiata sauce, and fresh mozzarella, served with spaghetti doused in garlic olive oil. Don’t forget to grab some housemade pastries for the ride home.
