The name Camerata was taken from Florentine Camerata, a group of artists, musicians, intellectuals in Renaissance Florence, Italy. The term, “camerata”, means room or chamber where gatherings are held.
Owner Paul Petronella was inspired by this term because of its Italian heritage; he created an unpretentious meeting place where guests can enjoy delicious beverages, complemented by a thoughtful food menu curated by seasoned chef Erin Smith with favorites remaining from former employee, Felipe Riccio.
Camerata also strives to be a place of learning, whether it is about wine, literature or history. Camerata is open daily from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. and sells bottles of wine at retail.
