    i much prefer perbacco. i like the more casual environment. the food is better prepared and everybody who works there really knows the wine. i've had some great wine recommendations from those guys.

    assenzio is ok. a bit more "restauranty," while perbacco feels like a casual and rustic place. i've had some bad experiences with overcooking of meat at assenzio.

      Agree with mas, I have never been disappointed at Perbacco and it's a great place for oenophiles, well chosen, reasonably priced Italian selection.

        Definitely Perbacco.
