A wide range of cheeses is served with small plates, salads & sweets in a cozy, rustic setting.- Google
"Their brown sugar fudge and blue cheese pairing is to die for!"

What a lovely place!!! Cozy and romantic atmosphere, fantastic cheese selection, great wine. The bartender didn't really fit in though (we were sitting at the bar) - he was quiet dismissive and didn't provide any service to us.

This place is AWESOME!!!!! Of course they have a great wine and cheese selection, but above and beyond is the staff...thank you Nikki!!!! She rocked! Great little spot in a romantic setting. Food is INCREDIBLE!!!!! Lovely bar and just a few cute tables perfect for a date. Neighborhood staple.

I went to Casellula in November, 2015 for a special occasion, along with 4 others. Because they don't take reservations, we arrived just after it opened for the evening. Five of us were seated at a table for two, despite the fact that a two-top and a three-top were empty and could be pushed together. Because we were literally knee to knee and elbow to elbow, (it felt like being in the middle seat on an airplane), I asked if we could be moved. I was politely but firmly told that this was not possible. Within a half hour, the two tables that I had asked for were taken by...yes, five people. The management apparently felt that more money was to be made by seating separate, smaller parties. I've not been treated this way at any other establishment, and regret having chosen Casellula.

Definitely a place to go, either for special occasion, date night, or just to meet up with friends. This place is small, but very charming and the food is very good. The staff is very helpful with wine and cheese pairings. We chose a wine and they chose three cheeses, each of which were very good. The Pig's Ass sandwich was meaty, cheesy, and rich. The mac and cheese was gooey to perfection. For dessert, we got the Drunken Grasshopper, which was a cool and refreshing way to end a rich meal.

I want to love this place as it ticks all my boxes, Wine and Cheese!, but sadly the service was appalling. There seemed to be about 3-4 wait staff for a very small restaurant but their attitude stunk! They could not care if we were there or not and constantly through the night we had to ask to be served. We had to ask for menus, ask for drinks, ask for meals, all whilst the wait staff were hiding out the back and talking amongst themselves. The attitude was rude and lets this place down sadly. On to the wine and food. There is quite a good selection of wines by the glass and bottle and the staff do actually know about wine so feel free to ask about a wine that takes your fancy. We were after a late supper after seeing a show and Casellula delivered. The menu is limited to mostly sandwiches which at first we were dubious about but we were actually really impressed when they came out. They were most gourmet baguettes and were delicious. There is also a nice selection of cheese available.

One of my favorite wine bar in Hell's Kitchen. Small and always busy with a young and vibrant neighborhood crowd. I always go for the grilled cheese, and can't help to have two of them. Great selection of cheeses and wine, good for a date or small group.

This is my "happy place." The wine list is nice, the staff is fantastic, and whatever they pair their cheese flights with its absolutely brilliant. Of course they also have other wonderful things on the menu, like their take on the Cuban (called the "pig's ass sandwich), the chicken liver pate, mac & cheese, miso mustard pickled vegetables (a must), chistorras (another must) and their today cheese truffles. But really, for me, the cheese is the star of the show. Just come early, or prepare to wait, because this place is tiny and popular!

The food is fantastic, charming wait staff and I highly recommend trying a wine and cheese pairing. Perfect for first dates, or just a casual get together with friends. I suggest getting multiple salad and small to medium plates and sharing.
