The restaurant is simple with a pleasant décor but what really sets it apart is the farm to table menu - it is as good and maybe better than any experience we have had in NYC and even Italy. We had the Newcomb Squash Bisque, Crispy Brussel Sprouts, the Local Harvest Salad (which was fabulous ), Grass fed Meatloaf, and... More

We enjoy coming to this neighborhood gem to enjoy cocktails and dinner. The menu changes to keep it interesting. The service is generally quite good.

I had been here before the change of ownership and really liked it. It was packed all the time then so I decided I needed to make reservations as it was Saturday night. There really was no need. When I arrived with my husband, there were a total of four tables filled in the whole restaurant. The waitress put us... More

Friendly, welcoming staff, and phenomenal food. All of the ingredients are fresh and local. This is definitely a regular stop for us. We enjoy eating here regularly. Desserts are all made in house, make sure to leave room! A definite must try! Truly the best desserts in the 518 area.

I have been here 4 times and each time has been fantastic. One of the owners Mike came over to the table and greeted us and talked for a few. That was nice. I had sea bass once and filet mignon today that was great. Thanks for a great meal glad they reopened.

We met friends at Mio Vino tonight. The front door staff seemed cool as we entered and this coolness continued throughout the meal. We started with the fancy salads: the del Cuocco and the classic Caesar. Although pricey, they were both very good. The entrees, however, did not stand up to the salads. The pan seared salmon was very overcooked.... More

Quiet and small, it was uncrowded on "Sunday Parm Night." Food was very good and service attentive. It had closed down for several months and reopened with all new friendly staff. The earlier "snooty" version did not work in this small town. Is it worth a drive from Albany? Probably not.
