Often when we drive back home to Southwest Florida after sharing the Holidays with our northern family, we divert to Winchester to share lunch with a friend and business associate who resides there. On New Years Eve day, before facing the rigors of truck traffic on I-81 South, we met our friend at Violino Ristorante Italiano, on her recommendation, where we shared a remarkably liesurely and enjoyable lunch; so much so that we were still raving about the experience when we arrived home late on New Years Day. This is a restaurant that exceeds the exceptional in every way, food quality, service, decor, atmosphere, and value. The owners may have well achieved perfection. It is not inexpensive, but it is still a wonderful value, providing everything to justify the cost of a meal. I strongly recommend the experience of lunch (or dinner) at Violino Ristorante Italiano. We shall be back again when we are next in Winchester.
