“Enjoy fine restaurants and well prepared food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

My wife and I have a second home near to Poulsbo for about 9 years now. We have found that for a nice meal, without driving 40+ miles, we go to Poulsbo. We started with Mor Mor, but over the last 2 years, Sogno di Vino is where we want to go to have lunch or dinner more often than not. We bring friends from the area, or out of the area all of the time. Everyone to this point have enjoyed their time there.

We love and enjoy the food, the service, the wine selection, and an occaissional cocktail. We have eaten in many good to excellent restaurants around the country and overseas. This restaurant fully meets our expectations for service, and if we want to try something different, Chef Wilhem will try to accommodate. But perhaps more to the point, we understand that there are times when we need to wait a little longer, or something we would like to try is not available. That should not matter, but it does matter to a lot of people that get upset by little things.

Sogno di Vino is an experience for us that we repeat often when we go over to our place on the Canal. We are thankful that such a place is there for us. And we also balance our expectations with what is going on in the economy, and what Robb and Angela can reasonably provide in terms of service, wine selection and fine food. And Chef Wilhem - we marvel that he is there to provide us with upscale culinary results, something we value a lot.

“Pasta Cooked Right”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We visited them on a cloudy weekend, so there were very few people. We ordered classic pasta and pizza. Both were very good comparable to the real Italian food that we had a month ago in Italy. The pasta was cooked just right. The pizza was made in the wooden oven and was thing and crispy. The place has very nice outside sitting with tables that have gas fireplaces in the middle. Very cool.

Thank you. The best compliment you can bestow on any restaurant is to compare it to the region or country that matches the food. We are so happy you had that experience.

“Nice place but over priced w below avg service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Above average design n layout of the restaurant but overrated in all other aspects.

-way too pricey for small portion plates.
-had to wait 5min for us to seat even when there were plenty seats. Server lady may have been the manager and didn't even seem to care we waited.
-Took way too long for food to come out even thou it wasn't busy.
-had to ask for water 2 seperate times as server/manager didn't bother to check on us much.

“Quite nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The food was well prepared and the menu sufficiently varied that everyone could find something they would enjoy. The ambiance is cozy and unpretentious and the doors open fully so as to reveal a spacious outdoor seating area that in this part of the world is well sought on a sunny day.

“Was okay!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The food was pretty good, but I had better itanian food before. I ordered the lobster and scallop stuffed canneloni and it was a bit bland. The service was pretty slow, but it was a busy day for them. I'd recommend it, but think I would rather try another place there since there are numerous italian places around this one.

Thank you for coming to dine with us and spend your hard earned money. We do have a few other Italian restaurants here in Poulsbo. I encourage you to try them as well. We did not have any complaints about the dish you had but the chef reviews all comments. We apologize and hope to see you again after you try everyone else.
