As you know I am always on the hunt for a good wine bar and to my surprise only 2 blocks from my apartment I discovered Vino! A wine bar, restaurant and store all in one = great find! When you walk in the front area feels and looks like a wine store with the walls lined with wine bottles and 2 long high tables that look like they could be perfect for tasting sessions. There is also a large selection of imported beers so you don’t have to be a wino to enjoy it. You can choose your favorite bottle right off one of the shelves or ask for one of the many options by the glass (we went with the bottle). In the back there is a nice anti pasta bar with a great selection of cheeses, meats, vegetables etc. Check out the nice cheese and meat plates we put together.
We also had the mushroom polenta which was delicious as well as the brie salad which was also quite good; I would definitely recommend both .I haven’t been for lunch (yet) but was told they serve an ‘all you can eat’ menu of their favorite dishes with the waiters bringing individual servings of yummy dishes like chicken risotto, ravioli, polpettone and more(can’t wait to try it!). The lunch costs U.S. $ 39.00, during the week and £ 49.00, Saturday, Sunday and holidays. Will try to get there for lunch in the next few weeks and let you know how it is!
