Fabulous Italian dining and drinks

This place is awesome, we went here out of state definitely make reservations on Sunday they are not normally open. The wait staff is extremely friendly and classy. The atmosphere is fabulous and very detailed

Best Wine

Bin 228 is an amazing little place in downtown Hartford. It really does take you away to a cozy spot in a different city, you certainly forget you are in Hartford. I had some amazing red wine from Montepulciano and my boyfriend even enjoyed a ""manly"" martini. It was a great place to relive a recent trip to Italy with the fruit and cheese plate, along with an extensive selection of wonderful wines.

What city are we in?

If you live in the Hartford area and would like to enjoy a simple meal and some great wine then Bin 228 is the place. When I visited this warm establishment I completely forgot that I was in Hartford, it definitely had a NY Chic ""feel"" with the exposed brick walls and warm color palate. The variety of bruscettas and paninis was just enough to fill me up. Whether this is a place to start off your night or it is your final destination it's a wonderful restaurant.

Must visit for Italian wine lovers

Great for Italian wine. The staff was very helpful with the wine, even though they fell down when it came to other service aspects. Nice menu, oriented towards lighter fare. Not the place to go for a serious ""foodie"" meal. All the wines seemed to be Italian, which is a nice change. Wine prices seemed good by the bottle, per glass prices are very high ( I guess to encourage bottle ordering).
Overall a great experience and definetly worth another visit. Not very many tables and small bar, so on a Friday, probably not a good choice.

Great Spot

This is by far my favorite place in Hartford. Tasty food (mainly finger foods), a wonderful and extensive wine list, and an intimate setting. I wish there were more places like this in Hartford. The owners truly know what they're doing!

NY in CT

I was taken away as I walked in and found myself in a different place than Hartford. From the wine list by the glass (over 40, I found), to the simple yet delicious fare. I was surprised I hadn't heard of this place before. The beautiful exposed brick walls and the wine bins lining them. The cherry bar to the best bathroom in the state. A small romantic spot to grab a light meal before or after theater, or sit and chat with friends or date. This place is perfect for suits to dates to friends just hanging out. The service was great too. I am not a wine geek and needed help, I simply told my server what I liked and he directed me perfectly to a Sicilian red characteristicly similar to my favorite Californian cab. A must try. See you at ""the Bin"" as my friends put it.
