Description: Master of the premises and young prodigy of gastronomy, Enrico Bernardo, Best Sommelier in the World, is adept at creating originalconcepts to enhance wine and cuisine in a simple way, always going further in the subtle discovery of savours. Il Vino, which has earned a Michelin star, is the first restaurant created by Enrico Bernardo that presents a new method of combining wine and cuisine. The dish proposed depends, a priori, on the wine sel ected. Choose your wine, and you will know what to eat! A revolution in the gastronomic universe. The gourmand who sits down is not left on his own in the search for his personal Grail. Sommeliers guide his steps,his choices, his desires, and help him to express his tastes

Il Vino's concept is interesting: guests choose a wine flight and the chef chooses the food for each course. I was a little nervous about giving up control of my food choices, but it turned out to make for a fun and relaxing evening. The food was perfect, and the service was warm, friendly and flawlessly professional. We asked for a list of the wines we tried, and our server emailed the list, as promised. The evening was fantastic and I look forward to returning to Il Vino on our next trip to Paris.

there are two menus offered and each course is offered with a wine specific to it. The servers do a blind pour and have you guess the provenance. Great fun and a wonderful meal. Very friendly an d unstuffy. Definitely need to go back here.

This was a first time for my friend and me. We loved it. Especially the friendly, unstuffy service. It wasn't terribly expensive for a restaurant of this quality and everything was enjoyable. The wine challenge added an extra element to the evening that was really fun. We were mostly right but not always.

I been at il vino for a special night organized by enrico bernardo on the bordeaux vines, with a set blind teasting menu.
We had an amazing night, the atmosphere and the service is soft and elegant with an excellent wine food pairing explanation.
The cuisine is very good with an Italian touch, my wife loved the raviolli stuff with sunchoke and shaved fresh truffle on top.
On top of that we had the pleasure to had the wine explanation by the best world's sommelier.
To do it again.

For the forth time, over a period of 6 years, we dined at Il Vino to again experience a truly unique occasion. The food was of the highest quality, but its Enrico's ability to superbly match the food to the right wine by the plate, by the glass. Starting with a vintage VC Rose Champagne seamless integrated to shrimp and fennel, or the German beef strips matched with the most extraordinary 10 year old Cornas Syrah. Simply IlVino offers the fully food and wine experience, like no other.
