Seven of us on a bike trip through the Shenandoah Valley spent two nights in Winchester, VA and had dinner at Violino Ristorante Italiano. The restaurant is very well appointed and the mother/son manager/chef do a great job of both the food and the service. The menu is quite large and very seasonal and the wait staff is very knowledgeable.... More

Some of the wait staff appear to not be properly trained for the sort of clientele the prices would indicate. Also, while the food is good, it "may" not be as good as the prices would indicate.

We spent three days in Winchester and asked lots of people what the best restaurants were. Everyone said Violino was top of the list. They were right. We had a lovely meal and were really well looked after by the delightful Bonnie.

I have been enjoying this spot for many years. Most romantic in Winchester. Harpist playing, delightful. Chef sings opera for birthday and anniversary. Food is very good and consistent. The owners are delightful

As Violino's is one of the more expensive restaurants in Winchester, my wife and I usually only go there on special occasions. My birthday provided us with the perfect excuse From the appetizer of stuffed squash blossoms through the pannecotta desert, the meal and service were excellent and well worth the price which, although a bit expensive for Winchester, would...

My wife and I have been there twice. The first time was a gift given to us. The second time was because we loved everything about the restaurant. The food is the best and the staff are friendly and very knowledgeable. They make you feel right at home. We had the lobster tail with lobster filled ravioli. Excellent! The price... More

We love eating lunch or dinner here. Friendly family service, great food, accessible wines. I love their always changing risotto and this evening it was porcini mushroom--meaty and savory. A delight. So nice to have such a quality restaurant in a small town.

Business trip dinner with another co-worker. Really nice quiet restaurant in the pedestrian mall. Great breads and appetizers with olive oil and balsamic. Tried that nights specials which was a veal porterhouse. Never had one before and it was truly remarkable. Deserts were great and the wine selection was just fine. The restaurant is probably designed to be a little... More

My husband and I visited Violino while we were in Winchester, VA. Both of us had the Mozzarella Santa Lucia and it was beautiful and very delicious. I had the Cannelloni Pasta filled with veal and spinach. I don't have pasta often, but this was really wonderful. My husband had the Ravioli Agnulot, filled with veal and mixed greens sauteed...
