Sara has a variety of good, fair-priced wines (although I wouldn't quite recommend their Sangria). Their thincrust flatbreads are flavorful and not too heavy at all! Check out Sara's for solid happy hour deals.

Wow what a hidden gem in culver city! The owner Sara is such a sweetheart and was so easy to work with and the food and wine were out of this world! Must try if you are in the area! Must try the bolognese pizza and lasagna! The happen hour is also fantastic!

Apparently this is the highest rated place in Culver City? I am completely uncertain as to why, as my experience here was less than subpar.

I met up with some friends here a couple of Friday nights ago. They had already ordered some bruschetta, flatbreads, and wine. I was starving and pretty eager to order - it took a good 15 min for a waiter to come by. I initially wanted to order a flatbread but they were out of it so I ordered a different one, along with a bruschetta and an iced tea.

The waiter came out with an iced coffee shortly after then disappeared - it took more time for me to wave him down so I could just get a water instead. The bruschetta came out at a decent time but the flatbread took an HOUR. So ridiculous considering that my friends ordered similar items and it only took them 15 minutes. I had to ask about my flatbread and I'm not sure if the order was placed at all initially or my flatbread had really burned like the waitress said. I didn't particularly enjoy it either - it was very salty (and I love salt!)

The bruschetta was good at least - it came free with a yelp check-in. Other yelpers seem to really like it here but I will not be back.

Cool little Culver City wine bar in an unexpected location with good food to go along with your glass of wine. The space is cozy without being too tiny to move.

Great Culver City wine spot! With yummy Italian food and a fantastic selection of wines this place is great to come on a date or host a private party! Will definitely be back here next time I'm in the area

What a gem in Culver City! While the location is unexpected (right off the freeway and in an industrial part of town), the space itself is really chic. There's a nice wine selection, but the food is what made the biggest impression on me. The flatbread pizzas were amazing! The recipes come from Sara's family in Italy, so you're in for a treat.

YUM! The ambience of this place is just so lovely and cosy. I absolutely adore the interior design(: The food is also really yummy, though the place is a bit pricey but it definitely is a nice place to stop by once in a while!

Sara and her husband Ciroc are awesome hosts! The food is incredible with much of it coming from Sara's mom's recipes. Meet some great locals at this neighborhood hangout. Very nice wine selection by the glass as well. Will definitely make this a new regular hangout!

*Cool home-like vibe*

Husband and wife tag-team to run Sara The Wine Bar. While the wife does the Italian cooking, the husband runs the service and the bar.
Yeah, the food takes some time to arrive, but I felt like I was at a home (will list below why) as I sipped on wine while waiting for food.

The Pizza Margherita was delicious, thin, and crispy; and we opted for sausage as our meat. We also ordered the bruschetta, where baby tomatoes were used instead of regular tomatoes, making the dish a bit sweeter; simple changes are good!

+ Husband utilizes the hell out of that wine aerator per pour
+ They have a "house cheers," where everyone at the bar and tables cheers with one another.
+ Rather than pretentious elevator/candlelight music, there's 90's hip hop and r&b.
+ I've seen "regulars" at a dive bar before, but there are cordial regulars at the wine bar here.
+ Prices are very fair. No bottle is over $35

It's low key without the darkness, moping, and yawning. Definitely a gem in Culver City.

Family owned wine bar. Delicious and consistent wines -- much more worth places than Bottlerock etc. the food here is stellar -- family recipes. The bruschetta is ridiculous -- with a kick. Don't trip. Just order that. The food is insane, authentic. Come for happy hour 4-7. And don't forget the wines. 11 for 4 different wines !
