I don't like to eat out very much because restaurant foods are salty, greasy, and not worth the money most of the times, but I loooove coming to Violino. The food and service is always high quality, and very reasonably priced. I can't find another...More

This top quality Italian restaurant is just a few steps from the George Washington Hotel where we were staying. The service is perfect and the wine list is very good (we had an excellent Chianti Classico) ! The ambiance is somewhat "rural" Italian and very...More

I am sorry. I so wanted to give this restaurant a very favorable rating but it left us rather - mediocre feeling. The good: the presentation of each meal, even the bread bowl, is an expression of art. The plates arrive beautifully arranged. But that's...More

Thanks for your review Why are you complaining about a $1 extra charge on more bread? We used to give all the bread you could eat without charging, but found that most people just ordered more bread out of GLUTTONY. It was always left over...More

This is our Go To Italian restaurant in Winchester. True Italian. A bit more upscale in nature and not cheap but a special place with incredible food and good service. Good wine selection. Delicious pastas. Love the outdoor dining in the warmer months.

My wife loved her eggplant and we both enjoyed the Lo Scoglio. Good bread and house wine as well. We sat outside and thoroughly enjoyed our meals.

I went to celebrate friends wedding! The food and the service was fantastic. We had the best table in the house by the window.

The surroundings were pleasant, the wait staff was excellent and attentive, but the meal was not top-notch! The bread wasn't real fresh, the meal was "OK", and the dessert was a bit of a disappointment. The setting and the waitress carried the day--the only reasons...More

We are a small fine dining restaurant specializing in traditional and authentic Italian cuisine. All of our items are made from scratch on premises from the bread to the gelato. The interior decor is old world and eclectic with a strong opera and classical music influence. Our service is professional and attentive . We look forward to providing you with an Italian culinary experience outside of Italy. Buon Appetito
