“Let’s bring a little bit of Italy to Keene”. That’s how Granita Enoteca was born in the spring of 2019. Granita is the Italian word for the syrupy shaved ice cones that all Italian kids crave on hot summer days but it’s also a play on New Hampshire’s nickname: The Granite State. Enoteca simply means a “shop that sells wine” but in our case, it’s a restaurant that wants you to experience the Dolce Vita of Italian life through delicious food and an amazing wine list !

Our bar features a Piattini menu (small plates) that let’s you share and sample lots of different Italian flavors and our wines (displayed in a beautiful temperature controlled room) invite you to sample from a list of over 70 wines by the glass (yes…70 !)

If you’re looking for a more traditional Italian dinner, you can step into our Trattoria room (with butcher paper lined tables) and dive into home-made pastas, pizzas, oven roasted meats from local farms and pristine seafood from our New England coast.

Should you bring the kids, don’t worry…there’s always a Granita waiting for them for dessert !
