I've been here a number of times of the years. While the food remains good, it's not outstanding. The value is just not here. It’s overpriced for the choices. Worse, the service seems to be in decline or I've just had a string of bad luck & bad attitudes. I feel when I dine there it seems an inconvenience to... More

We love Vino's and Rj Books. We love the atmosphere, the food and the hospitality. It brings back memories of when my husband proposed to me during dinner 23 years ago. We just keep coming back. You have to try the Baked Mozzarella as an appetizer. You will love it as well as there homemade desserts! Yummy!

I love the food and the atmosphere. Great for dining or hanging out in the lounge. The spicy sausage dish is unique and best I've had.

I went with two good friends for dinner (not my first time there) and they both ordered pizzas which I got to sample - DELICIOUS. I ordered an Asian chicken salad which also was very very good. A bit noisy but I guess that means people are enjoying themselves and they do quiet down once the food arrives.

Do not miss an opportunity to eat here. Pricey but worth it!!! We started with calamari and a melted mozzarella, balsamic, pepperoni plate. Delicious!! French martinis were dazzling. Our main entrees were... linguine bolognese, Napoli chicken, spaghetti/angel hair with meatballs and marinara sauce and lasagna. All Wonderful. We finished with key lime pie, chocolate bunny cake and carrot cake. The... More

On a road trip cross country and sick of fried food, chose this out of the way Italian restaurant. We're not disappointed. Service excellent and our waitress steered us away from the veal which she said can be chewy. So I had the eggplant Parmesan and my husband had the chicken piccata, all with a good bottle of wine. Appetizer... More
