My wife and I stopped overnight in Winchester this week on our way home. Friends recommended that we dine at Violinos, which we did. It was a very good decision, and totally unexpected. It has better food than one can find in my home (Rochester, NY, a metro area of ~1 million). It is a small, family owned restaurant with... More

I've been at the Violino many times a few years ago when I was in Winchester for a business trip and I found it great. I had a chance to return in Winchester and I went there last week and today and they just confirmed my opinion: great authentic italian food, impeccable service and a friendly but yet stylish touch....

The food was excellent. I had the veal shanks . They just melted in my mouth. The service was friendly and prompt. We had our one year old granddaughter with us and they were very accommodating . Our party of five were treated extremely well. The menu was varied but pricy.

We were staying in Winchester on our way home from Charleston sc. Happened upon Violino I the Old Town area. We started with the lobster bisque. It was possibly the best I have ever had. Everyone enjoyed their meals. All the wait staff was very good especially Bonnie. Highly recommend!

I was in downtown Winchester on business, and stopped into Violino for a nice lunch. Service was appropriate, and I never felt like I was in need of anything. My meal started with an assortment of breads, followed by a complimentary cup of Cream of Asparagus soup. My entrée was a delicious pasta dish with a rich cream sauce. While... More
