After dinner drinks.

Wine selection is huge and they even have beer! The owner came out and gave the children some chalk to draw on the side walk while we drank. Great place!! We will be back.

Met an associate for quick drink and appetizers after work. Just not what I expected. Highly rated on TripAdvisor as a restaurant. I guess I just thought there would be more of a food selection. I can't drink wine without eating. Apparently I'm not one of the wine snobs they're used to having. Staff was very young and not friendly.... More

I am dismayed to learn of your unsatisfactory experience at Viva! il Vino. I have contacted Trip Advisor many times regarding the restaurant categorization. My tiny place has no kitchen but I do provide complementary snacks consisting of Italian salami, a selection of cheeses, olives, chips and mango salsa. Additionally, guests can have free tastes all the wines on the... More

A great venue located in downtown Anderson. The perfect place to savor fine wine with friends or associates. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.

This is a lovely spot to have a glass of wine (or three!) and some (free) chocolate or olives. Plus the service is super friendly!

This is a great place to meet up for a pre-dinner drink. The location is off the beaten path and is very inviting. The owners are wonderful and take great pride in providing customers with great service and a diverse variety of wine. They also serve other specialty drinks and beer. They also provide free light appetizers.

Viva Il Vino is a welcoming spot for wine or wine cocktails, along with yummy complimentary snacks. The selection was manageable - not overwhelming like some places. We were encouraged to taste first, then a generous 7 ounce pour was served up. This spot is tiny, in a former tailor shop, and not big enough for a kitchen. However, several... More

We went to Viva Il Vino on "Wall of Wine" night (the first Friday of each month). The enthusiasm of the staff and customers was contagious and high-spirited. The wine menu has something for everyone, as well as beer and non-alcoholic drinks. Tasty snacks are provided gratis. The wine "pour" is a very generous seven ounces. Each participant in the...

Three of us went in to check out this little place. It was warm and humid so we sat inside. Shana, the owner, greeted us at the door and made us feel welcome. We sampled several different wines, selected one, and enjoyed conversation with other patrons. There was a nice variety of wines, we had no problem selecting ours. We... More

Ambiance great! A good place to share good wine and quiet time with friends and try a new or old favorite wine. Staff very knowledgeable and friendly. An unexpected gem in such a small town.
