Really good food, people and service. I think it is family owned and operated, definitely will go back when in the area.

The best bolognese sauce that I have had in a long time. A very popular restaurant - we were lucky to dine here without reservations! Highly recommend!

We stopped in for dinner our first night, without reservations, but had no problem getting seated. This is the cutest restaurant, with outside seating as well as a charming dining room inside. It has so much color and character, and the staff was cordial, helpful, and observant without hovering over us. There is a very nice ambience to this place,... More

I don't usually post reviews especially bad ones but I have to say this was the worst Italian restaurant I have ever eaten in. Expensive and poor quality food. Avoid.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit tonight. Attentive service thanks to Ashleigh and the waiter who never let our water go down one inch. Authentic food. I loved the minestrone.

If you're expecting Mc. Donalds or Olive Garden, don't go here. However, if you're expecting a nice sit-down meal enjoying your time with friends, family, or your significant other, then I'd definitely recommend this place. The food is AMAZING. At least all the pasta dishes I tried are. If I HAD to choose my favorite, it would be their Caesar... More

3 of my friends and I decided to eat Italian for our last dinner of an annual weeklong get together and we chose Violina's based upon Trip Advisor. We really enjoyed the meal and the Montepulciano wine that we selected from the wine list. Everyone enjoyed their selections which varied from lasagna to a specially made veal parm that was... More

My friend and I made reservations and upon arrival were seated promptly. That's the good part however, from there it was downhill. Our server was pleasant and we got our wine within a fairly reasonable time frame. Then we waited 50 minutes for our appetizer and were told they were out of bread so our specialty meats appetizer had no... More

Thank you for your review. I sincerely apologize for the long wait but I think you might be exaggerating a little bit. Did you wait 50 min. from the time you sat down or the time that you ordered your appetizer. How long did it take you to order form the time you came in? It possibly could have taken... More

We are a small fine dining restaurant specializing in traditional and authentic Italian cuisine. All of our items are made from scratch on premises from the bread to the gelato. The interior decor is old world and eclectic with a strong opera and classical music influence. Our service is professional and attentive . We look forward to providing you with an Italian culinary experience outside of Italy. Buon Appetito
