We so enjoyed a romantic dinner Saturday night. The food was incredible and made all the more special with the ambiance and the live violin music! I recommend reservations as it filled up very fast and it appeared most had reservations.

We visited Violino during a weekend in the Blue Ridge. It was highly recommended by our B&B and we had scouted TripAdvisor reviews. The restaurant absolutely lived up to every of our hopes. Food was delicious and beautifully plated. The ambience of the restaurant was terrific with a live violinist and service that was attentive without being intrusive. The meal... More

What a wonderful little restaurant. When you think of Italian you always think of the typical spaghetti kind of place. This was fine european dinning. (I lived in europe for five years and this made me feel homesick.) Typical small scale establishment, but the service was spot on. If anything it was a little over the top. The food is... More

First off, the service was great. Our waitress was kind and attentive. I went with a friend of mine after we found out another restaurant we wanted to go to was closed. We were the only customers along with a table of 6-8. Before the meal, we were served chestnut soup and oil with bread. The soup was really delicious.... More

We thought we knew all the decent places to eat in Winchester, but we we're wrong and we've so glad we were this may now be our favorite. This restaraunt is about as close to the food experience of northern Italy as we've found. Excellent food and excellent service. My wife's lobster ravioli was great and included a large cold...

Our family spent an enjoyable evening at Violino's. The ambiance, service and food was first rate. In addition, there was a harpist who played beautiful Christmas Carols while we dined.

When I think of Winchester, VA, I ultimately think of Violino. Great food, family atmosphere, impressive wine list. Their salads are delicious and fresh - never too heavy, but quite generous portions to share. If Violino happens to be your evening outing, I highly recommend their specials. And the dessert - try raspberry chocolate cake to fall in love. PS.... More
