I love this place, I would come here a million times over. The food is outstanding, the waiters are kind and attentive, and the ambiance is cozy and worth visiting over and over again.

Dined here a few times with my wife and have been happy every time. It's a very small restaurant with very limited seating. The ambiance is very classical Italian, and can get very loud with white noise from all people they fit in such a small space, but it's not overpowering. It is a higher end style restaurant with a...

I have dined here several times with a girlfriend and we love the cozy, hole in the wall ambiance that Vino E Pasta offers. The first time I dined here the owner greeted me at the doors, escorted me to the table, and helped me take off my coat. Very rare nowadays. They offer bruschetta to start off the meal,... More

The owner will usually meet you at the door. He seems to recognize many of the customers. Meals can go from $15 for a standard pasta dish to near $40 for the specialties. I had the spaghetti with clams and mussels, and my friend had the lasagna (super rich flavor,) and it would have been under $30 total, but we... More

My boyfriend and I are in Tampa for the weekend and we drove by this place and it looked interesting so we decided to try it out. We were greeted and sat promptly and immediately noticed that the seats were atrociously uncomfortable. We even later witnessed a gentlemen bringing in a large chair with him for his elderly wife to... More

It's your typical, small, Italian restaurant run by family. Service was attentive and the food was good. What the four of us didn't appreciate were the high prices, and the attitude of the owners. Really pretentious and condescending. Need to lose attitude and the expensive prices, after all, it's pasta not lobster.

spending the first night in Tampa, we were looking for a good place to have dinner. Based on the previous reviews we decided to go to Vino E Pasta. And what a dinner experience we had! Upon arrival Luis greeted us in person, the typical real Italian atmosphere is everywhere (we are from Europe so we can really compare). This... More
