We went to Vino's last evening - our first time & it was the BEST!!! The place is cozy & inviting, the food is outstanding and the owners, Kathleen & Tony, are beyond accommodating!!! This place is a "gem" and we will be back real soon!!!

Great traditional Italian food, very friendly atmosphere, reasonable priced. Only thing I would comment is that they only serve beer and wine and my husband likes to have a mixed drink. Otherwise it's a family favorite!

We walked over on a Thursday night and my boyfriend and I immediately sat without a reservation. We ordered the special arancini for an appetizer, I got the spinach ravioli, and he got Roz's special with the meatball. Very tasty! Our server's name was Dan and he provided great service. We will definitely be back! Can't beat good food, good... More

WOW - from the minute we stepped inside Vino's we knew we'd made the right choice for a meal. The atmosphere is classic, comfortable and even a bit romantic - but equally appropriate for a business occasion or celebration. The menu has something for everyone, from pastas with classic sauces, to meats and a wide array of appetizers. Everything was... More

We had good friends visiting us from Long Island and we wanted them to experience the intimacy and sheer quality of Vino's. I am always in search of the best combination of very well prepared Italian food and the right touch in its presentation....Vino's is the place!

The owner Kathleen is so friendly I felt like I was having dinner with family and I had never been there before. When I walked in and said I had a reservation for 6 but was early she said oh you must be Janet :-) Food was excellent - not large portions but just enough so you were not stuffed.... More

This place is small and food is very good...but I too agree the owner should not be a drill Sargent to the employees. People don't want to hear this. People don't want to see this. The waiters, waitresses act like scared puppy dogs. They should not be standing around along the wall in the dining area. You never see the... More

I was at Vino's with a large group (about 20) friends. We were seated at a long table and had one waitress for all of us. Since someone from our group had arranged this ahead of time, we were immediately brought three different appetizers (enough for everyone) and bread and drinks. Then we each ordered whatever we wanted from the... More
