My wife and I had a great meal and an overall very fine experience at Violino. This was our first time eating here, and while we knew it had a good reputation, we weren't really sure, because of some of the negative Tripadvisor reviews, that...More

Excellent food, broad menu, nice wine list, and great service. It's a great restaurant for small or large groups.

Transport to Italy for a bit, the dishes are authentic, and the chef/owners and wait staff all know their stuff, and care about your experience. Would stand up against any cozy Italian restaurant in the world.

Very good dinner, from cocktails onwards, with excellent main courses, and competent but not stellar service; among the best Italian meals I've had in the USA - and good in absolute terms, though it would only scrape into the second division in Italy.More

Thank you for your review. Let me first correct your spelling of Angel Hair not Angela Hair. Our homemade Angel Hair IS a thin spaghetti like pasta. Secondly all Pasta is boiled (That is how it is cooked). On a more serious note. The description...More

Wow, we went looking for a restaurant to meet up in a halfway location for two sisters families. We were traveling with a 7 month old infant so location was very important for his comfort. I read all the reviews on TripAdvisor and this look...More
