Great service with nice wine

Not big wine drinker nor huge Italian fan, we went here on recommendation by a friend. The food felt 'home style' and selection of Italian wine was favourable.

Finally managed to grab a table at this tiny place.( after a few attempts, strongly suggest booking) albeit outdoors on a cold Thursday night. The heater was on thankfully. Parmagiana de melanzane was a great start. The mains were equally great. squids ink tagliatelle, and beef cheeks with potato,cabbage and beans, with a lovely honeycomb semifreddo for dessert. Impressive wines,... More

We managed to get an outdoor table without a booking on a very busy Friday night - only had to wait 30minutes and the restaurant called us. We shared olives and grissini and the scallops for entree. I had tagliatelle with pipis and my partner the slow roasted sirloin. The food was beautiful, timed nicely not too quick or slow.... More

This cosy restaurant was packed on a Wednesday night. The menu is ever changing and on a.blackboard. The antipasti was delicious and served very quickly. Octopus with olives, peppers and celery was tender and tasty. The Prosviutto came with the best breadsticks I've ever had. We tried two different pastas for mains. Mine was an al dente hand rolled pasta... More

I was delighted with my visit to Vini! The Menu, which changes daily was fine, the selection of regional Italian wines incredible and the best, most knowledgeable service that I've had in a long time!!

This was a business dinner where I hosted eight. Average price was about $90 per head including alcohol. Food was excellent and a decent range of wine, well matched to food. Service was very prompt and staff polite and helpful Bookings are desirable. I called on short notice and they squeezed us in, but it would be hard to do... More

This was one of the most delicious meals my husband and I have ever had, we could not fault the meal, the wonderful selection of Italian wines and the friendly, knowledgeable staff. Well done, we will be back!

My friend and I attended the RFT of Calabria (set menu) on a Tuesday evening. The food was melt in your mouth to die for! The Sicilian wine was equally divine. Service and atmosphere were superb. Highly recommended.
