Annata Wine Bar, located in the center of Hammonton, is a Tuscan styled wine bar with a Italian influenced tapas (plate sharing) menu.
The ambiance is cozy, and is the most sophisticated restaurant in Hammonton.
Looking through the tall plate-glass window the dining room offers a rustic, yet elegant atmosphere where dinners can enjoy a view looking out into the heart of the town'
The dining room is done up with an old stone wall with stucco and some exposed brick, dark hardwood floors, and rows of wine bottles stacked on wooden shelves all around the perimeter. The tables are set with white tablecloths and cream-colored napkins, and are surrounded by comfortable, overstuffed, green arm chairs.
This is an ideal place for a romantic dinner, a night out with a group of friends, or to celebrate a special occasion.
If you are there for a romantic, cozy dinner, ask to be seated in the alcove along the wall.
While the featured attraction is the wide variety of wine selections, the dining menu is mainly tapas --- small portions meant for plate sharing.
Annata Wine Bar has live Jazz featuring the area's best Jazz performers, every Thursday evening.
They also accommodate private parties for corporate functions and special occasions.
Open six days a week, Tuesday - Sunday, for lunch and dinner.
