The dining experience at Violino is like no other. You will be amazed and the selections they offer, and their "specials" are always incredible. They offer some of the best Italian cuisine you will ever taste.

We were in Winchester to enjoy First Night Winchester 2015, and my wife wanted a special lunch-dinner. We entered the restaurant and were impressed by the menu and how the owner greeted us. From that point on things only got better. Being gluten-sensitive, I discussed things with the waitress. She followed through and advised on everything. Later the owner-chef and... More

Wonderful service, wonderful food and a genuinely enjoyable dining experience. The staff was incredibly attentive and, even though we basically closed the place, there was not the slightest hint of pressure for us to rush our meal or our dessert. The suggested wine pairings for our meals were perfect. Thank you for a memorable evening.

Violino is by far one of the best destinations for a true Italian experience. It’s almost hard to believe a place like this is nestled in the downtown mall of Winchester. I’ve been going to Violino for more than 5 years and every time I don’t think they can get any better – they do. My family’s first visit only... More

This was our second time at Violino. We brought a new friend along as well. Our memory of our first time was that it was excellent. We were not disappointed. Although they were busy, we never felt rushed, the appetizers were served promptly, the meals were just excellent and the wine list extensive. The service, food and value were all... More

We have visited Winchester several times, specifically to dine at Violino. The menu is extensive, and the food and service are excellent. The space is decorated with musical instruments, making for an interesting atmosphere. If you're lucky, the chef-owner will serenade you with an aria from an opera. Always a wonderful evening.

Small portions and not inexpensive, but genuine Italian we were lucky to have a mild night and ate outside on the pedestrian mall. Friendly helpful waitress and owner

We are glad that you enjoyed the rabbit. Our rabbit is raised here in Winchester and only grazes on the pasture leaving the meat very flavorful. As always foraging for local meat is normally on the higher price per pound since it is grown in smaller batches. We try to give a filling portion without having any leftovers since i... More
