I go to Vinoteca every chance I get. The food is delicious, an incredible array of wines and the service is always top notch!

Has been here 10 years...and the reason is obvious...neighborhood vibe....thoughtful wine selection...excellent service...and possibly the best Happy Hour in the area.Also, they are quite generous with the pours and sampling.

A friend introduced me to Happy Hour here, a delicious assortment of wines and eats, healthy foods and savory (worthwhile) wines from around the world. I thoroughly enjoyed the Cameneres and Primitivo. You can do taste tests in order to decide. The only thing I wouldn't recommend unless you are in a large group and sharing... is the Parmigano... too... More

I love wine! My husband and I took time to drive to Los Felize to try Vinoteca. Service was not good, I think the bus boy served us. I had questions about the wine we were about to order and his answer for everything was either medium bodied or full bodied wine. No elaboration. We selected our wine, enjoyed delicious... More

This tiny, intimate wine bar is situated between Farfalla and the Brazilian restaurant Tropicale. The wines are amazing. My husband drank cabernet and I sparking wines. As you might expect, the labels we loved could not be found at any liquor store we checked. Happy hour was so good we went back 3 times in 5 weeks. My husband loved... More

We are critical reviewers of lots of places. Vinoteca Farfalle is one of those spots where the happy hour is absolutely amazing. In LA - a dozen amazing oysters for $18. Big pours of great wine, segmented by $5 glasses, $6 glasses, and $8 glasses. Incredibly thin crust pizza with fresh ingredients for $8. A great atmosphere with great service.... More

We must admit, we love happy hours, and this is one of LA's best. Obviously other people think so too. It is always (pleasantly) crowded. Very nice small plates, and one of the best selections around of wine by the glass. Known by some (younger folks) in our family as "dark bar." We don't find it that dark. We love... More

Found the restaraunt via Trip Advisor when searching for places "near the Greek Theatre.". Perfect start before the Goo Goo Dolls. Food was great and ambiance even better. Food is more (my pallette) Brazillian then Italian. Wife's risotto with mushrooms was great. My steak too. Had the antipasta and together with 2 entrees, enough for 4.

A friend and I were looking for a place to get together for a Friday afternoon happy hour and I hit on Vintoteca Farfalla. The reviews were pretty good and the 4:30-7pm happy hour sealed the deal. As other have comments elsewhere, the space is very dark, but otherwise nice. We got there right around opening time and the place... More
