Weirdest and creepiest bartender on Sunday night – used to love coming to this place - it has a cool atmosphere and a nice selection of wines and beers. Normally I like the staff.
However, the short stocky guy with closely-shaved hair bartending on Sunday night was one of the biggest creeps I've ever met.
He repeatedly asked if I would like to be raped, if I enjoyed being raped, and if I would like to go to prison to be raped constantly. I have no idea what got him started on this topic.
Then he attempted to charge me for my drinks a second time.
I'll never go to Beviamo again.
Strong Drinks – This is a great hidden Gem of Little Italy, the staff is very friendly and the martini list is probably has about 30 different martinis plus they make your glass of sangria right on the spot!! the only drawback is there were so many drinks to choose from that I couldn't decide! I'll definitely be back to finish off the menu!
For the perfect date night I'd recommend starting or finishing here, especially if you can get into Francesca's right across the street!
VERY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE – i felt like it was my duty to write a bad review for this place. i've never written a review for any other place but this. i used to go this place for the $5 martinis on mondays and usually a very nice irish man bartended. he should be the owner, not the other douchebag. this bar is owned by a very rude person. he doesn't care about pleasing the customers, just making a profit. every time he's been there, i've been given very poor service. no welcome greeting, no goodbyes, no thank yous, NOTHING. he made a mistake on my tab, i get no apologies and not even a refund for three weeks. what the hell? if you do decide to go, i advise you to be extremely careful around the owner and your tab. he is short and beefy. the end.
Hip but accessible University Village hangout for oenophiles. – Amid Little Italy's trusty dining spots, Beviamo Wine Bar is a casually funky option for the before- or after-dinner crowd and neighborhood UICers with taste for more than keggers. Beviamo has an interesting and affordable selection of international wines. The list is organized by flavor type--"Easy Drinking Red Wines," for example--smoothly enabling the novice to expand the palate. For those more about the scene than the shiraz, there's a full bar, including an adequate martini selection. Most nights, DJs spin jazzy house; other evenings feature live musicians and poetry. Barely candlelit, the space is darker than necessary, making it tricky to clearly discern the vaguely Moroccan decor (ceiling curtains and hanging ceramic lamps).
I Love This Place – Just what my title says: i love this place, my friends and I have been going here for a while, we are so happy we discovered this place. The bartenders are awesome, service is great, and let's not get started on the Martinis, they are a "must try". I truly recommend this place.
Jude Longwood – Great atmosphere, fantastic service and even better music. Small but very cozy setting- excellent wine list. Must check out the martini menu!
Wine bar with great atmosphere – Some of Chicago's best House music spinnin' after 10:30. Great atmosphere and the martini's aren't to be missed!!!
Great Spot in Little Italy! – A group of 4 sat down for a bottle of wine after dinner on Taylor Street. Small Bar room is very cozy and the service was prompt. We drank and people watched for over an hour and it was fun!
We will come here again after dinner on Taylor Street...
