This rating covers the Resturante experience only. Nothing really wrong nor overwhelming. I am finding out that Ecuadorians (and perhaps some gringos) prefer their food on the bland side. This place has two excellent table salsas... basil, balsamic, Olive oil and a chillis and olive oil mix. Added a little of both to my Calzone and it was much better.... More

Ordered bottled water, beer and wine, a beef dish that was tougher than jerky and a pizza. Pizza was bland. Still waiting for bottled water. Each dish was very slow in coming and by the... More

It is an Italian restaurant featuring pasta & pizza. We ordered several dishes, but none were particularly good. The pizza had a strange kind of mozzarella & too much oregano. The bruschetta also had too much oregano. Disappointing!

The Jazz Society performs on the second floor Wed.-Sat. and you can order your meal from the downstairs restaurant. I do this. We have tried the pizza, lasagna, pasta, antipasto, salads and of course, house wine for the events. The food has be good. Makes for a very lovely evening.

We visited here based on the recommendation of the propriety of the inn where we were staying. The pizza was spot on and the pasta was delicious. Good bread was served with oil, balsamic and herbs. Drink prices were very reasonable.

Took a long time to be served with a nearly empty restaurant. Portions were very small; food would have been good if it were not lukewarm/cold. Atmosphere was okay nothing special. Service totally lacked enthusiasm; not friendly at all.

Just wandered in and had a wonderful Italian style (thin crusted) pizza and a perfect pasta dish. The Italian owner knows his food!

We went with friends to a jazz and tango evening at La Vina. The pizza was good, but not exceptional. The pizza is thin crust if you prefer that style, however I prefer a slightly thicker crust.
