Friendly, welcoming staff, and phenomenal food. All of the ingredients are fresh and local. This is definitely a regular stop for us. We enjoy eating here regularly. Desserts are all made in house, make sure to leave room! A definite must try! Truly the best desserts in the 518 area.

I have been here 4 times and each time has been fantastic. One of the owners Mike came over to the table and greeted us and talked for a few. That was nice. I had sea bass once and filet mignon today that was great. Thanks for a great meal glad they reopened.

We met friends at Mio Vino tonight. The front door staff seemed cool as we entered and this coolness continued throughout the meal. We started with the fancy salads: the del Cuocco and the classic Caesar. Although pricey, they were both very good. The entrees, however, did not stand up to the salads. The pan seared salmon was very overcooked.... More

Quiet and small, it was uncrowded on "Sunday Parm Night." Food was very good and service attentive. It had closed down for several months and reopened with all new friendly staff. The earlier "snooty" version did not work in this small town. Is it worth a drive from Albany? Probably not.

New chef is not as good since they reopened in Fall, 2015. Hopefully he will improve with time. Menu continues to be a catch-all mix.

This is our second time visiting Mio Vino. We were excited to go back, especially with the Chef Carmine joining the crew. We tend to go out to dinner quite a bit around the area, and really enjoyed our visit the first time, so we were hoping to have have another great experience. Making reservations was great, the hostess was... More

We were really happy to hear that mio vio had reopened this month. We stopped by and tried the new menu. We ordered all small plates which included the calamari (not breaded), meatballs (our favorites), arancimi (pardon the misspelling) and thin cut filet apps. The filet was our favorite but the meatballs were a close second. For desert we had... More
