I love the food and the atmosphere. Great for dining or hanging out in the lounge. The spicy sausage dish is unique and best I've had.

I went with two good friends for dinner (not my first time there) and they both ordered pizzas which I got to sample - DELICIOUS. I ordered an Asian chicken salad which also was very very good. A bit noisy but I guess that means people are enjoying themselves and they do quiet down once the food arrives.

Do not miss an opportunity to eat here. Pricey but worth it!!! We started with calamari and a melted mozzarella, balsamic, pepperoni plate. Delicious!! French martinis were dazzling. Our main entrees were... linguine bolognese, Napoli chicken, spaghetti/angel hair with meatballs and marinara sauce and lasagna. All Wonderful. We finished with key lime pie, chocolate bunny cake and carrot cake. The... More

On a road trip cross country and sick of fried food, chose this out of the way Italian restaurant. We're not disappointed. Service excellent and our waitress steered us away from the veal which she said can be chewy. So I had the eggplant Parmesan and my husband had the chicken piccata, all with a good bottle of wine. Appetizer... More

Excellent food and excellent service. Best Spicy sausage you can get. Spicy but not blow your top hot. Great variety of food, appetizers, and drinks. Small and inviting dining room

Our group of 12 friends selected Vino's to have our monthly outing. The selection of wine and beer was very good. The beer selection had local micro brewery selection besides the standard national brands. The selection of dinners was very good. They even had a few spicier dinners.
