New Wine & Dessert Bar on Shattuck @ Hearst?
Does anyone know anything about the wine and dessert bar that just put a "proposed development" sign up across the street and just south of the soon-to-be Corso (a Rivoli venture), in one of the brand new condo/retail spaces?

Thank you for your interest! I am the owner of the future Cioccolata Di Vino, a dessert and wine cafe. Offerings will include specialty desserts and a small plates menu. The wine list will be primarily Old World, with an Italian focus. I will also have a nice selection of dessert wines and ports, as well as a variety of specialty hot chocolates. I hope to begin construction in May and open over the summer.
I look forward to being part of a great neighborhood!

Thanks for the report it is open. Have you been back ... anyone else been?
They website says they have hot chocolate drinks.
Has anyone tried any of the Italian dishes such as the frittata, sandwiches or soup?
The cheese and salami plates sound good
