[something] Enoteca - 69th and Broadway

I was rushing up Broadway this morning and noticed a place I hadn't seen before. I couldn't make out the first word but the second was Enoteca -- east side of Broadway just above W 69th Street. Does anyone know about this, presumably new, place? Is it worth a visit?

Thanks!

    Barcibo Enoteca. Run by the same folks who operate Bin 71, over on Colombus. I think the place is great. Good small plates, good wine. All Italian labels, though. It's crowded at night, every night. Quite nice in the afternoons though.

      Ah, another one to add to the list. I still haven't visited Bin 71. It always looks so crowded but I have heard good things. Do they both attract similar crowds? Can you give me an idea of the age range? When I've walked by Bin 71 I got the impression it was kind of one big party, maybe because it was so small. I like the afternoons idea

        The crowds are 20's/30's/40's, at night they're both crowded and noisy, but afternoons are less crowded, more to my comfort level. I like Bin 71's space a bit more, but they both do a nice job. Wine's are in the $10-12 and up range per glass. Both places have great cheese platters, and at Barcibo, the veal crostini is worthwhile, as is the mushroom risotto.
