As well as a wine bar and vinaio, (Enoteca means wine library) and a beautiful underground cellar for private dining and functions.

1889 Enoteca serves traditional Roman fare and hand-made pasta which is perfectly complemented by an extensive wine list showcasing unique, artisan producers with a particular focus on natural wines . The cosy, sophisticated setting provides a perfect backdrop for this authentic Italian experience.
