Take it as it comes, noisy, busy, atmospheric, small but tempting menu, and large and VERY tempting wine selection. Try it!

it's a little enoteca with impressive Italian wine list and daily menu. it tends to fill up really quickly therefore expect a waiting list. I had an overall pleasant experience, the waitress who served us was very qualified and very informative and helpful.

We had a memorable dinner at Vini while on holiday in Sydney. They were kind enough to accommodate us at late notice on a Friday night (after a 30-minute wait in the pub next door), and it was well worth the wait. The atmosphere has a lovely, cozy atmosphere and it's not uncommon to find yourself talking to other diners... More

Have now been quite a few times and keep going back to this lovely Italian restaurant. The chefs seem to just keep on coming up with wonderful ways to provide really interesting menus and with such a great variety of produce. We love that it is always so fresh and seasonal. Have never ever had such great Italian food anywhere.... More

Had dinner at Vini with my 20-year old son. We showed up around 7:00 on a Saturday night and managed to get the last open table outside. The food was very good. We went with the recommendations of our waitress and shared everything. The wine list is very good as well. I would highly recommend.

Vini is one of 3 establishments under one management. Berta and 121 BC are the other 2. We have visited all 3 in the past couple of months and been impressed by the quality of food and wine and the professionalism of the staff. Vini does not accept bookings for other than 'theme' nights which focus on regions of italy.... More

The team at Vini is always welcoming and attentive. The food is simple but divine... Fresh quality produce, handled with the up most care. The menu is constantly changing and the regional wine dinners are not to be missed (make sure you book well in advance - for good reason). Thank you Vini... You never fail to impress.

We got here early to make sure we got a table as the restaurant is small it fills up quick. On first glance at the blackboard I was a little concerned it was a bit limited especially as the milk fed lamb was wiped off before my eyes (although a spit pork added) however everything we had was devine and...
