Expert review of Enoteca Belledonne
The clue is in the decor: wall-to-wall bottles of wine from all over Italy and beyond. A few tables (wine barrels) and chairs encourage you to order a glass, take a seat and savour.
The idea is that you sample a glass or two and then, having decided that you've never tasted anything as good before, you buy a bottle to take back to your hotel (or a case or two to ship back and lay down in your cellar). Alternatively you can, as I do, nip in for a glass of something lovely (a rich aglianico or a chilled greco di tufo) and have a plate of bruschette with a few cheeses or some meats.
It's a popular bar so it can get busy. I'd suggest you swing by early on - 6-7pm in the evening - for an aperitif before heading on for dinner.
The service is excellent. These guys know their wines.
It's a couple of streets back from the Chiaia waterfront but make sure you head up the right connecting street or you could have to backtrack.
You can eat and drink well for a reasonable price (a glass and a plate are around 15 euros to 20 euros) but if you pick an expensive wine…
