Chose it for our 25th Anniversary. We go there very often, always with a reservation, but when it comes to a special night it usually gets the nod. The meny is varied always spectacular, lamb chops, chicken leg-thigh, pasta, Mama's Salad and the salumi-cheese platter appetizers are usually our choices, but the fish specials are always great and beautifully prepared and presented. Best of all is the hospitality. Genuinely happy to see us, smiling, ellicient, well-groomed and attractive. This great restaurant, one of three by the Mason family, has remained in our Ketchum top three since the day it opened, maybe three years ago. Can't say enough. Just go!

We love Enoteca and make a point of dining here every time we are in Ketchum. On this night, we shared a Strega pizza and a Mama's salad, both of which were excellent. And we always have the bacon-wrapped dates. Who doesn't like bacon! The wine was excellent and the service good. Our only complaint was the heat level in the restaurant. The building is not air-conditioned and with a pizza oven going, it was too warm for a June night. The windows were finally opened to let in some cooler air.

Great range of tasty options, all well presented and prepared... If it wasn't 9 hours drive away we'd go back often..
My friend has been dreaming about a meal here
I haven't eaten here before but my friend asked me to make reservations for us because of their duck. He grew up on a farm and they often had duck. But when he ordered it here last time he said it was the best duck he had ever eaten. He wanted to have it again and see if it was as memorable. There were six in our party and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their drinks and food as well as dessert. This restaurant has a congenial atmosphere and the service was great. But if you like duck you should be impossibly happy here.

Everything on the menu is great. It's hard to decide what to order!
Always Proud to Take Friends to Enoteca!
The lamb stew is our current favorite, and the special pizza has been fantastic. You definitely need an advance reservation to get a table here, but OpenTable makes that easy.

The Mama's salad and pan chicken are fantastic. Nice people, good service...
Perfecter and Perfecter!
We went there two nights in a row, once alone and once with a guest. The Salumi Platter, was followed both nights by Mama's Salad, and last night, broiled salmon for the women and Lamb Stew for me. Burke and his unpretentious but delicious wine suggestions and an attentive but not interruptive staff were only surpassed, the night before, by the most perfect "special" pizza of crusty woof-fired crust topped by unfamiliar peppers, tomato sauce, salami (?) and just the right cheeses. The usual pizza meister was replaced for the night by a stand-In, who turned out to be outstanding! The Maestro is still there, but apparently they give him a night off. Such a great place!
In for a Treat
Excellent restaurant; well-trained staff; great food; extensive wine list.
Delicious and relaxed
love the roast duck confit, delicious and beautifully plated
Excellent food and Customer Service
Enoteca just gets better every time I eat there. I had the beef stroganoff and it was excellent. The staff consistently provices excellent customer service.
Enoteca is simply one of the very best restaurants we have been to over the last several years. This is no small statement since we have eaten at some of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and LA's finest, as well as numerous great places all over Northern Italy. Enoteca's menu is exquisite and performed perfectly. The wine list offers many excellent off-the-beaten path selections as well as old favorites. Service is always very professional. The whole staff is friendly and extremely knowledgeable. The restaurant is attractive, and there is a happy ambience. It all makes for an incredibly good dining experience every time! The only problem is getting a table during busy times, but when a restaurant is this good, of course you expect this. We absolutely love Enoteca!
The three of us had the John Dory which was delicious--perfectly cooked--nice and moist. The accompanying vegetables were creative and yummy. We shared a kale/beet salad which we agreed was a winner. Highly recommend this restaurant. My only negative comment is the background music was too loud.
Mitch & Christine
Enoteca continues to deliver an outstanding experience for us and is always top of our list for dining in Ketchum. Thanks again for being able to accommodate us! Cheers, Mitch & Christine
Great as Usual
Great ambience, good service, and the food is consistently good. What else needs to be said.
Family run with strong wine focus. Food is delicious and unusual but not too precious. Try Mama's Salad!
Perfect Experience, As Always
We are frequent visitors at Enoteca and its siblings Ketchum Grill and Town Square Tavern. We always enjoy the shared meat and cheese platters, whatever fish they are offering, the Mama' Salad, Spicy Meatballs, Lamb Chops, and wines by the glass. The atmosphere, a vintage brick building with high ceilings, is very Old Ketchum, but the food is very contemporary and creative. The wood fired pizzas are great. See you there.
Homemade Ice Cream.
The trout was prepared with an unusual GF crust. Chef knows how to cook. Homemade ice cream, unusual combination that worked. Will return.

Neat place and good food but disappointed they were out of a few of the regular items on the menu and out of one of the specials at 7:30pm. But all in all we would return.
Make a reservation NOW
Busy, smallish, crowded, but comfy and classy. Inventive menu. Great service. Osso Buco is a must! As is house made vanilla ice cream with a shot of esspresso. Sit where you can watch the prep in the open kitchen.

While we loved the atmosphere and the service was great, we felt like the really high ratings for this restaurant didn't reflect the food. It was good, but about a solid 3.5 stars good. We happily pay these prices for great food, but not when it's just alright.

Very cool building, great ambiance, super friendly and knowledgeable staff, and most importantly delicious food.
I hadn't been here for a while, since they burned my husband's pizza and hadn't really figured out the menu. This time the pizza was perfect. My vegetarian lasagne came with a perfect side of simple arugula salad. My friends trout looked perfectly cooked. Service was impeccable. I'll be back!
I always have a great time at Enoteca! Foods terrific, service is nice, ambience is the best! Highly recommend this restaurant for a fantastic time!

Enoteca boasts an extensive wine list and has attentive, friendly servers. Our food was good, but not particularly memorable. We started with a cheese plate and had two specials - Hawaiian Opah and Quail. We would come back but likely try something else on the menu.
A Gem in Sun Valley!
The food was exquisite, the ambiance was hip/romantic/edgy and the service was highly professional and personable at the same time. Highly recommend!
We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Enoteca. The staff was very efficient and nice. Food was delicious! When in Sun Valley again, we will be sure to visit this restaurant.
Five in our party...five very different entrees...five rave reviews . Can't wait to go again!
A great place to eat in Ketchum
Enoteca is definitely one of the best restaurants in Ketchum. The food is great, service good, and ambiance fun and attractive. It's lively, but not too loud. We had the quail that was on special the night we went, and it was terrific. The duck was also good, and the pork tasty and generous. Recommended!
Favorite of the week
Enoteca was excellent, from the food to the service, ambiance and the value! We were in Sun Vally/Ketchum for a week, and I always research and make reservations for restaurants in advance. We left the last nite opened for a repeat if we thought one restaurant was particularly outstanding, and Enoteca was the one that we both agreed on was the best all around. Even though we didn't have a reservation, we went early enough to be able to get a seat without having to wait too long which we were worried about since it was a Friday nite, and it was the busiest restaurant we had been at all week. I think we happened to walk in right about the same time someone else came in to cancel their reservation... lucky us!
Enoteca is one of my favorite restaurant ...
Enoteca is one of my favorite restaurants. Because I live on the East Coast and travel abroad often, Ketchum, Idaho is an annual destination. Everything they make is so good, I order more things than I can possibly eat just to taste as much of the menu as possible. The others at the table do not need any encouragement to assure that nothing ordered is left over. Last year, I was able to go for two dinners, this year, on our only free night, it was only one dinner. To make up for this, I ordered the dates wrapped in bacon, which is a marvel of succulent dates wrapped in the crispiest bacon with a small garnish of greens, the best side of Brussels sprouts and bacon I have had (possibly tied with the one at Lincoln Ristorante in NYC), the strega pizza with fine ingredients on a thin crust which is crisp without being brittle and pliable without being dough-y, any entrée is great - this time, mine was brook trout -, and then our group of four split over port and biscotti, warm chocolate dessert and (mine), a gingerbread and caramel ice cream, all of which brought sighs of approval. The one regret was having to leave so much of the menu untasted.
Favorite restaurant in Ketchum/Sun Valley
Amazing spot for a great dinner, trendy decor and great food and wine, don't miss the brussel sprouts, bacon wrapped dates with gargonzola and the local Trout is amazing, however, everything on the menu is delicious! Love sitting in the window at the front of the restaurant, advance reservations a good idea as it is arguably the Best Restaurant in Ketchum!
My request for a "quiet corner" was granted for a 6pm seating but by the time we left (on a weeknight) the whole place was rocking with the tiny arrival area packed. We were all pleased with food and wine, so much that we stayed on until the hostess asked VERY politely if the house could serve us a glass of dessert wine at the bar, as the 8pm reservations were waiting. It was nothing like "get out, you have overstayed". Much different, indeed! A special request to serve the buratta plate with some arugula was a snap, the duck confit and risotto spectacular and two evening special plates delicious. We will return!
Our favorite in Ketchum
