“Outstanding Italian Dinners”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Our party of four seniors had four different dinners; three gave 5 stars, one gave four stars. It's a small and cozy restaurant off Rt 22 across from Toyota dealership in a small strip of stores which may be hard to find for first time diners.

“Best food for the Price in Harrisburg”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

I recently learned about Vino restaurant when two different people told me about it in the same week. We went for a Saturday evening meal and could not believe how excellent the food was at a very reasonable price. The mango mouse cake for $4 is now one of my favorite desserts. I was so impressed that I went back with a different group of friends the following weekend. It's now one of my favorite restaurants in Harrisburg.

“best kept secret in harrisburg”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

If you like real Italian food (not Olive Garden pretend Italian) then Vino is the place for you. The owner, Joseph, is from Naples and the cuisine reflects his roots. The restaurant is cozy with a warm and friendly atmosphere. The service is top notch and the food and drinks are reasonably priced. Fresh ingredients are used and portion sizes more than adequate. the mussels steamed in white wine are a great appetizer and the veal dishes are very, very good. There are a variety of fresh pastas and there is enough variety in the menu for just about all tastes. Save room for the desserts, which are also very, very good.
The clientele is predominately adult---couples and foursomes.
Be sure to make reservations, especially on weekends.

“Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

My 17 year old foodie/research expert found this phenomenal place for us. We made a reservation for Saturday night and arrived a bit early to our table waiting for us!
We started with fried calamari which was tender and lightly battered - arrived hot with a great marinara for dipping. Then the crusty, fresh, thick bread arrived warm ready to be dipped into olive oil.
For entrees, we had the crab cake, made with chunks of crab and flavor, broiled perfectly to a crisp crust yet moist inside, with an equally tasty aioli; next was fettuccine carbonera with the creamiest sauce and just enough pancetta. Then we had veal Chesapeake - the veal was tender and plentiful with a delicious crab and cheese topping!
We could not finish our entrees, so took home a serving of tiramisu which was equally excellent at about midnight!
We also had soup and salad. Salad was fresh with generous dressing but the soup of the day (prosciutto and bean) was unfortunately too salty for us!
All in all, an excellent meal!
Also got to meet the owner who was gracious and welcoming!
