Trattoria L’incontro Closes its Next Door Wine Bar

Jan. 31, 2014 By Michael Florio

The popular Italian restaurant Trattoria L’incontro, located at 21-76 31 Street, shut down its wine bar, Vino di Vino, earlier this week.

Rocco Sacramone, owner and chef, stated that he closed the wine bar since the rent kept going up and was becoming too much for him to afford.

“The rent went up and I didn’t want to deal with it anymore,” Sacramone said. “With the rent and real estate taxes I couldn’t afford it.”

The Timesledger was the first to report this news.

Vino di Vino was established to accommodate the overflow of restaurant goers at Trattoria L’incontro.

The restaurant, which was ranked the best Italian restaurant in New York City by Zagat in 2010, continues to do well, Sacramone said.

He said no one should read anything into the fact that he has closed down Vino di Vino.
