Recently rebuilt and now open for lunch or dinner. Dinner meals are excellent - even though a little higher price than surrounding restaurants. Good selection. Good service. View of the golf course is available from every table.

We have been here a couple of times and really like the golf course setting. We have never gotten a bad meal here but we've never gotten a great meal here either. The service depends on how busy they are, I would say it's just adequate.

We were at Violi's Tuesday evening 6/16/15. We are a group of folks who get together at a local restaurant monthly. We were excited to go to Violi's and support their reopening. It was an extremely disappointing evening. There were about 20 men - who may have been golfers there at the "19th hole". They were disgusting. They were so... More

We visited this restaurant tonight- not long after they re-opened due to a fire last year. Previously the food and service was average, and the portions were decent. On tonight's visit the service was dreadful, the food was still tasty but the portions shrunk by about 50%. The prices however remained just as high. Drinks were served in filthy glasses... More

Offer dinner specials Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Good food at reasonable prices. Meet there often with friends. Nice in the summer as dining overlooks the golf course.

Violi's continues to serve excellent food every night of the week. In addition to their nightly specials, my guests and I have found everything we tried on the menu to be delicious. The cocktails are very generous as well as reasonably priced. I almost forget to mention the garlic knots, outstanding!!! I live close to this restaurant and dine there... More

This isn't far from our office. The food is fresh and the staff is really nice. If you want something changed (or special), they will take care of you. The specials are always good.....

Poor value for money. This place schleps, as my wife accurately observed, "reception" food. Mass produced veal and Chicken meals. Flavorless pasta sides and tired salads that, if left out another hour would need to be tossed. The guys (I presume were golfers getting their load on as a "19th hole") in the bar area were yelling profanity and were... More
