“Food Poisoning Twice”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

A group of us travel frequently on business to the GM Tech Center. Near the end of February we ate there and one of my colleagues ended spending the evening at the hotel vomiting and with diarrhea. On the next trip, she did not join us, and two of use went. The next morning another colleague complained of stomach cramps and just a general blah feeling. I also did not feel well, also with stomach cramps. The first time it happened, we wrote it off as something else, but when 3 of use felt sick out of 5 dinners eaten, that seems to be a pattern. The one thing thing in common with both visits is that worked late both nights at GM and didn't get to the restaurant until 8-9PM for a very late dinner. I wonder if food had been left out and reheated.

I will say the service was fantastic and the food very tasty, but it has been removed from our list of restaurants.

Well rounded menu specializing in Italian cuisine. The open kitchen lets you watch food being prepared. Good food , and service.

“Great for Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

I like Papa Vino's for lunch because I adore the Tuscan Chicken Salad. Not to mention the loaf of bread with olive oil that is presented when you first are seated. The cannoli's are another matter. Didn't like them.
