Looking for a wine bar on the UES, that also serves light bites

on the Upper East Side that would be comfortable for about 8 women - in their 30s? After work.

    Uva might work, though it does get crowded. We enjoyed the food we had there - Italian - the one time we went.

        There is Vero which is across the street from Uva, but it is rather small. Also Bar Italia which is at corner of 77th & 2nd. I have not been to Felice at 64th & 1st yet, but that might work too.

          I second Uva. The food could be a little better, but certainly adequate for a few bites and the wines are great (mostly italian, I believe).

          I really like Felice on 64th and 1st. Also Caffee Notte on 84th and 2nd.

            I've enjoyed Vino, 2nd Ave/66th. Some interesting wines for less than $10, which is refreshing these days. Also Accademia di Vino, 3rd/64th (more expensive though).
