We ate here on a balmy evening, where the air conditioning consisted of leaving the front door open to let in some air, whilst we melted in the corner!
3 out of the 4 of us were disappointed with our main courses which were very bland. The starters however, were better received. We felt we were rushed to both order and vacate our table, so our overall experience was such that we won't be rushing back.

This is the first time we have been to Ilvino and we were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious and reasonably priced, the staff were friendly and attentive. We had a lovely evening and will definitely return.

We've just moved to the area and thought we'd give this place a try. Glad we did as the food was excellent and the place has a really nice feel about it.

The service was friendly and attentive but not annoying. We liked it so much we went back twice in the same week.

It's not cheap but not too expensive either. Nice to go to an italian that's not a chain restaurant we'll definitely be back.

All the food was good, however the sardines and the tre gusti pizza were particularly delicious.

Waitresses leaning on the bar chatting as we arrived. Shown to a table by the window only to be asked to move a few minutes later to a table further inside the restaurant.
Starters were ok but the main courses: fish cake (stodgy) and chicken escalope (grey and tasteless) were just good enough.
There are many restaurants in Hertford serving much better food.

I recently celebrated my birthday at Il Vino, It was booked as a surprise by my family and when I arrived there was a party of 26 waiting for me. The staff were attentive and managed to serve us all at the same time. Everyone enjoyed their meal and we were pleased with whole event. We were given the front of the restaurant which stayed comfortably cool on a hot Sunday Lunchtime. We were not asked to pre order and everyone chose from the full menu. Thank you to Vinnie and the team. We would thoroughly recommend this venue.
