“Date night”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Violino is situated in a quiet, cute neighbourhood, it is a gem that is sure to not be missed. We went for a birthday, it's in an adorable old house converted into a restaurant. We sat upstairs on the balcony outside, the view was amazing.

Our waitress was Emily she was prompt and polite, she made good recommendations for food and wine.

I ordered the Risotto which was rich and delicious, my boyfriend got the surf and turf he loved it, desert was also really good.

We would have rated this place excellent however, they did have a bee problem that would need to be fixed. They did not bother us but could become bothersome for others in the future if not attended to.

“delicious night out”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

Got a recommendation from a friend to go here and was not disappointed. Great food, decently priced and loved sitting on the second floor balcony, very nice view. Wine recommended to us with our dinner was superb. Really good service from James. Made for a great anniversary dinner. Would definitely return.

“Classy enough to impress, casual enough to enjoy all summer!”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Beautiful setting for romance or a group of friends. Patio is really great and food is delicious. Lovely shops in the area too. There is parking which is great for an area that has limited parking.

“came back after 2 years,again for anniverary”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

This place just gets better. Many more pasta dishes available since we were here last. The food was great, service was a bit spotty but our waiter James fixed it all with a smile and a free appetizer. I was really impressed with this place this time more than last. I was about $170.00 with tip, which is a bit on the tall side, but nice. Restaurant needs some nice quiet Italian music to add ambience. I will be back sooner than before,
