I love taking out-of-towners, family, and friends to Al Vento. They have half priced bottles of wine on certain days of the week, and their food is prepared thoughtfully and is delicious. The location is small, but we've never had a problem getting a table.

The only draw back is that because the tables are so close together it can get quite loud from all of the conversations happening during busy times. But this is a minor drawback compared to the food.

It was a snowy night and the place was still full. Great app's. For the main course I kept to the basics and had the spaghetti and meatballs. Very tasty and the portion size was good. The service was a little slow at times but overall very friendly.

We went here for our date night. Great service and great food. Atmosphere is more noisy, but that's just the Italian way. Seating is close to other tables. Make sure you make a reservation, or there's a good chance you'll have to wait for a table.

I love this place. The food is wonderful. We hav a table in the corner by the window that was just perfect. It is not very large and evertime I have been there it has been quite warm in the restaurant . They have an extensive wine list.

I believe they only recently began serving lunch - lucky for me that they do now! There is a menu that allows you to choose one starter and one entree for $10 - best bang for the buck. The panini that I ordered was excellent and my friend's beet salad starter and spaghetti and meatballs entree were all exceptionally good. Highly recommend this place!
