Went there last night with my wife and 2 other family members. First time there for us. We were warmly greeted and thankfully we had a reservation as it was packed. The atmosphere was great because of the lighting, crowd noise and nice background with an accordion player who never stopped...he was great. Service was great and we ordered the... More

Another wonderful night out at a great restaurant. A group of us have gone a few times now to DiVino's for a nice meal and a few glasses of wine. The nice thing about it is we ask Mario to prepare a meal for all of us starting with appetizer and finishing off with dessert. NO MENU required!! Mario takes... More

We've had lunch here before so we decided to try dinner next time we were in town. A group of 9 was all handled efficiently by the staff of 2 (owner and chef). Pasta was great flavours. Grilled Salmon was popular. Service was quick. Would definitely go back

This is probably the finest Italian restaurant in southwestern Ontario. Windsor has numerous, pricey, Italian restaurants but none can compare with the Town of Essex's first rate Italian eatery. Creative foods, home made pastas, an exceptionally fine wine list and wonderfully welcoming hosts with accompanying personalized service. We've had various meals there since we discovered this gem. The last occasion... More

This is a fine dining restaurant with a little elegant atmosphere. The portions are not huge but what they lack in quantity they make up in quality. A little on the pricey side. Definitely worth it for a special occasion.

Wrong location for sure since the town people are using this place only for weekend dining. This place knows how to cook real Italian food. I wish I had a restaurant like that in my town.

You can't go wrong here! I had the lamb rare nor medium rare n they got it spot on. The calamari was as good as the best I have had in France. Service was attentive without being obtrusive. Every table was involved in their own discussions and the acordiadionist was magnificent.

A quick stop for lunch while shopping with a friend. Excellent service and fabulous food. Best lasagna I have ever eaten in a restaurant. Very reasonable price for the quality of food received. Will definitely return to try their dinner menu

We had 10 out to our staff Christmas evening. People came from Windsor, Amherstburg, Harrow and Kingsville, so the central county location made it quick to get to for everyone. The service was outstanding. The food was excellent. We loved the music. Overall, we gave it 10 thumbs up! The price, including a some really nice Italian red from 2011... More

Went last night for a birthday celebration. My brother in law decided to pre order some appetizers for the group of 20 people. The owner said he would do up some nice apps for the group. Three platters with prosciutto, olives, eggplant, etc came out. Maybe $40 cost. Restaurant charged $250!!! Wow. Maybe if there was some bruschetta etc. I... More
