Description: Master of the premises and young prodigy of gastronomy, Enrico Bernardo, Best Sommelier in the World, is adept at creating originalconcepts to enhance wine and cuisine in a simple way, always going further in the subtle discovery of savours. Il Vino, which has earned a Michelin star, is the first restaurant created by Enrico Bernardo that presents a new method of combining wine and cuisine. The dish proposed depends, a priori, on the wine sel ected. Choose your wine, and you will know what to eat! A revolution in the gastronomic universe. The gourmand who sits down is not left on his own in the search for his personal Grail. Sommeliers guide his steps,his choices, his desires, and help him to express his tastes

Food in Paris can be hit or miss so I was thrilled we lunched here! The food was phenomenal - the service exceptional, I enjoyed, savored every mouthful and the wine experience was just a delight!

A great Restaurant where owner had title of the best Sommelier of the World, his is his streght and unfortunatly also his weaknes.
It is his strengt as given his exceptional sense of taste, plates are an incredible pleasure.
It is his greatest waekness as there is no choice for anyone wishing not to drink wine.

If you're looking for a way to blow your money, this is the place. But it's kind of worth it for the experience. The customer service is phenomenal and the food and atmosphere are high-end. Yes, there is white truffle. They bring you food based on the wine you pick.

Choose you wine and they'll give you the food it pairs with.
That's the main approach they pursue.
But in practice we went with the tasting menu, with wine pairings.
The experience was very nice as we've been invited trying to blindly guess the wine, adding some friendly competition to the table that contributed to the atmosphere.

We added the option for a truffle-based dish that I found a bit overpriced compared to the serving, although I may be biased by experiences where truffles are more common than the center of Paris.

But all in all, wholeheartedly recommended.

We did the tasting menu with wines as well and it was all excellent.
The foie gras in corn and bourbon sauce in particular was savory and silky - it was my husband's favorite of our entire 9 day stay. (And he does not eat corn or drink bourbon normally!) The tasting menu pairs each dish with a wine selection. The wines are revealed after you eat each course. The service was friendly and not stuffy and even with ordering the tasting menu, our server inquired about food allergies and preferences.
When we left the staff called us a taxi. It did not arrive in what they felt was a timely manner, so they went out to the street and flagged one down for us.
We'll be back next trip,
