We went to Vino's last night for our 2nd visit. On our way home, we decided that we have 3 favorite restaurants in this area. In no particular order, we will start with Vino's. We've already made reservations for Fish Friday this week. The food is prepared impeccably. The serving sizes are beyond generous. There are always specials that we... More

This was our first visit but it will not be our last. Unassuming from the outside but delightful inside. You are warmly greeted by the owner, Kathleen and she makes you feel part of the family. The service is fast - we were in and out in under an hour - but never felt rushed. The menu is not large... More

Whenever we are in the mood for sauce, Vino's is always our first choice....and the meatballs are amazing! If you have been to Vino's more than once, you are considered family...and that is the way that Kathy & Tony treat you. The food is consistent, dining area is always clean and the service outstanding. The long list of (mostly house-made)... More

We were regulars at Vino's back when they first opened. Living out of town for five years kept us away. The other night we decided to drop in. Things have changed a bit. The place is a bit spiffier. I don't recall them taking reservations - they do now. What hasn't changed is the food. It is terrific and clearly... More

After our honeymoon to Italy Vino's is our favorite spots to enjoy a real Italian dining experience. Before our wedding Vino's graciously hosted our rehearsal dinner, which was family style. Everyone loved the food and the atmosphere. Portion sizes, and variety of courses remind my husband and I of our meals in Rome, Milan and Venice. We frequent Vino's as... More

Food is delicious. Small portions, however. Would def recommend making reservations. The restaurant is small, so it fills up quickly. The staff is very friendly and makes you feel like you have been coming for years!

Vino's is one of those wonderful little, family-run gems that one always hopes to find but are so rare these days. The atmosphere is casual and charming - small, intimate tables, warm, subdued lighting, and an utterly charming bar. The food is simple (not fancy) but delicious Italian fare - pasta, chicken & steak a la Vino, Caprese salad, etc.... More

As former residents of Buffalo we always look forward to a great Italian meal when we visit and we have found our new favorite place ( Sinatra's slips to # 2). The red sauce and pesto sauces are incredible as was the lasagna, meatballs and sausage. We found to the portions to be more than adequate and we value quality... More

Less is less at Vino's....asked for water with lemon and a large bottle of water was brought to the table...nice touch; however, I never saw such a smalle slice of lemon! Same with the salad....included one slice of strawberry and fresh mozzarella the size of a pea. Pasta was delicious, but again servings are on the light side.
