“Wonderfully consistent”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

One of my favorites spots.Aside from the quaint neighborhood feel, and the calm decorative atmosphere, Al Vento's menu is consistantly great. It is versatile enought for a family outing or a great romantic dinner for two. The prices are reasonable and I haven't had a negative experience yet. Great bruschetta!

“Superb brunch”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

They accomdated our group of 10 without effort. Staff was attentive but not overbearing and ver courteous. Quaint setting, too noisy for conversation but an altogether excellent place and we are sure to return and introduce other friends to this delightful experience.

“Excellent Italian!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Meatballs and Minestrone soup taste just like Nonni's. Atmosphere is cozy and lively, yet we can hear each other talk just fine. Food is excellent, drinks are excellent, service is excellent.
