Our friends had told us that we should visit Vino’s when we cross the border from Ontario. On our next visit to Buffalo we tried the restaurant and really enjoyed the atmosphere and food. The owners of this cozy restaurant interact with the patrons like family, there are hugs when people were leaving. We felt very welcomed when we entered... More

Try this wonderful neighhood old school Italian restaurant. Kathy is an awesome hostess/bartender/owner. Twiggy is an excellent server. Tony rocks the kitchen with classic, old world Italian cuisine. You'll feel so guilty they didn't charge more for their food, that you'll take extra good care of the staff. Try it once, and you'll come back. Try it twice, and you'll... More

Went to Vino's for the first time on Thursday 11/3. When you walk in this cozy restaurant the smell of simmering sauce is filling the air. It is all home made Italian food which is very good.

The food was very good But when we asked to order tea the answer was we " don't have tea" Wow a restaurant with out tea? One of our party drinks only " hot water" (medical reasons), the answer we don't have hot water. They don't boil any water in the kitchen? Very disappointing probably won't return.

The house red wine was good, then the food came. Bruschetta was barely average, seasoning was non-existent. Dinner salads were below average. Ravioli was ok, pasta was a bit over cooked. Bread was ordinary at best. Pasta pomadoro was beyond bland, was overlooked, and where were the great Italian herbs and spices? Did they not receive their delivery of garlic?... More

Great traditional Italian food, very friendly atmosphere, reasonable priced. Only thing I would comment is that they only serve beer and wine and my husband likes to have a mixed drink. Otherwise it's a family favorite!
