My husband and I have 2 favorite restaurants in Winchester and this is one of them. We have been going there since it's opening. The atmosphere is delightful ! Marcella, one of the owners, is almost always there to greet her customers and to make them feel welcome. The waiters and waitresses are very knowledgeable about every item on the... More

Great atmosphere, especially when the owner starts to perform and sing. The food is wonderful, but you do pay for that, which is why I gave a 4 star rating. Several locals told me that this is a typical restaurant to go to if you have a special occasion to celebrate.

I'd heard of this restaurant and didn't know what to expect when three of us visited for lunch one afternoon and it became one the most pleasant restaurant experiences I've had. First the ambiance beats anyplace I've been in the Shenandoah Valley, such a peaceful setting. The wait staff were equal to the staff we've had some of the finest... More

May be the best lobster bisque I have ever had. Flounder as main course nicely prepared and fantastic taste. Our other main course was the lobster tail with ravioli, very good but not exceptional. We find it best to stick with the menu and not the specials. Specials are very good but very complex and pricey. Staff is very well... More

A great opportunity to eat alfresco on a warm July evening. Service was good, except our antipasto never arrived. The waitress apologized and provided our dessert - complimentary. The dessert was delicious. :)

I visit Winchester on business. The first time I ate here I was not prepared for such excellence. The decor and store front seem to infer a comfortable, mid level Italian cuisine experience. Don't judge a book by it's cover. Inside is an exemplary wait staff, a high end dining experience, and imaginative and delicious food. This restaurant is a... More

Last week we celebrated our anniversary with a lovely dinner at Violino's in Winchester, VA. We were greeted by Marcella who makes you feel like family from the moment you walk in. We've been frequenting this lovely restaurant since moving to the area 7 years ago. The food, the ambiance, and the outstanding service are unequaled! Everyone on staff came... More

We searched for some really good food before we went to a musical at Shenandoah University. We called Violino, and we were assured by a voice that we should come at 6 PM so we could get to the play on time. The voice belonged to one of the owners who came to our table when we arrived and asked... More

While traveling from our home state of GA to CT and back, we stopped for the night in Winchester, VA. My cousin searched for local restaurants and Violino was one of the top recommendations. We love finding small family-run restaurants; we hit the jackpot! The menu was above and beyond our expectation! Not to mention the daily specials that were... More

My husband hates to fly so we always break the trip from Winston-Salem, NC to Philadelphia, Pa at Winchester. Our first encounter of Vilino Ristorante Italiano was quite by accident when we stopped over night in Winchester on the way to our grand-daughter's wedding in Philadelphia. The setting of the restaurant in Old Town Winchester is so picturesque and the... More
