We thought this was an excellent dining place and went two times during our Winchester stay. Family-owned and run, it has very good service and wonderful food. Reservations are probably recommended.

Dinner reservations on Friday night. The staff was very warm and efficient. Started with calamari which was obviously made on the premises and excellent. We had the clams with red sauce which was very good. Also had branzino over polenta which was also excellent. Nice wine list at reasonable prices. There was a violinist playing and the chef/owner came out... More

We discovered this gem of a restaurant a year and a half ago while returning home from the Masters. We had a great meal. This time we made a special point to stop here. Again we had a great dining experience. The meal was great, our waiter Raymundo was great and the ambiance was great. The girl playing the harp... More

What a delightful find..very warm and accommodating staff..asked about allergies first, identified my gluten-free needs and gave me the list of available foods. I had what turned out to be the best pesto ever, my husband greedily ate his Carbonara. Worth a try, will be back on... More

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.
