  • "Terrific food and an imaginative wine list. Our foodie friends from Baltimore enjoyed it as much as we did."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "I am generally not one to leave restaurant reviews, but this place is worth the trip. The food and the wine list are consistently quite good -- I have been here a half dozen times thus far and always leave happy! My personal favorites: the burrata, meatballs and the gnocchi."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "First visit and found the food was well prepared, well presented, and delicious. The big wine list offered many complimentary selections at all price points. We will be back soon, bringing friends."

  • "My boyfriend and I have been going to In Vino for the past 5 years - it never disappoints us! The food and service is always amazing. Definitely reccommend this little hole in the wall restuarant to anyone who loves a great Italian meal and a nice bottle of wine to go with it!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "I have been coming to this restaurant for years. Its a small but fantastic restaurant. The italian food is some of the best in the east village. Worth a shot if you haven't tried it yet!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I didn't have the food (so I just marked it as fair but I'm sure it's delish), but went for a wine class and it was very enjoyable! Food looked delish! Wine list is AMAZING, and they know their wines!"
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "My only complaint was that it is itty bitty and the tables are closely packed. Whew, that out of the way, the food was fabulous. An absolutely amazing wine list and although I am generally knowledgeable about wine, the list is all Italian, so I deferred to their recommendations with price/preference guidelines. Beautiful wine at < $100 with the food. I had the papardelle (gorgeous) and then had one of the best steaks that I've had in years (sadly, couldn't finish, but a street person also had an awesome meal). We were visiting NYC; but recommended it to our daughter who lives there & we recommend places to her only on occasion."

  • "Cool atmosphere, but ... 90 degree and hard, the seats are very uncomfortable. No bottle of wine below $40. Calimari and Kale with citrus vinaigrette, delicious."

  • "In Vino offers an excellent dining experience. The menu of authentic Italian foods was plentiful and each dish we tasted was "a party in our mouths". Delicious! The wine list was superior and varied. The servers were very knowledgeable about the wines and willing to make suggestions. The ambiance was cozy and friendly. Over all, a superior dining experience."

  • "Amazing nice little restaurant in the east village. Super cozy. Will definitely go back."

  • "We were looking for a casual place to get some good italian food and we found In Vino through a Google search. It came recommended so we gave it a shot after clicking through some photos of neighborhood restaurants, and selecting this one based on price, and the fact that there were no stuffy white table cloths. In Vino is dark, rustic, candlelit and great for a date or a small group of friends. We even saw one guy bring in his mother and sat her at the bar - everyone was very friendly and laid back. If you are in a rush for your food, this is not the place for you- it is definitely a leisurely pace type setting. Food was excellent, with smallish but very filling portions."

  • "Unassuming front........perfect sized restaurant, locals at the maybe 10 seat bar.......great wine list and great food. 3 old friends for dinner who've been doing this for 30 years........we had 2 bottles of wine we've never had before, one of us had the special risotto, one had the ravioli and one had the pasta with ragu......all cleaned our plates! Just a delightful Christmas party dinner for us! Thank you In Vino."

  • "Great service with staff that know their wine and are completely unpretentious about it. Great food, too."
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "This is my favorite restaurant in NYC. The food is great (porcini mushroom ravioli and the shrimp with pasta dish are my favorites), and reasonably priced. It has a huge wine list. I don't really know too much about wines generally, but the staff is super knowledgeable and very friendly. Whatever they recommend is always great. The staff is also the right mix of friendly, but professional - service has not once been a problem and I have been here at least 10 times. Totally not pretentious like you might get at some other restaurants. Can't wait to go back."

  • "This place was excellent! I arrived early for my date and sat at the bar trying out different wines. Turns out the owner was serving me and he was insanely knowledgable about all the different wines they had, which shows that he's extremely passionate about wine. As for the actual restaurant, its small but perfect for a romantic date. The food is great, excellent wine selection, and ambience of the place really let me connect with my date. Also, the servers were great. Definite recommend!"

  • "Took my wife here on our first date. Love going as the food is amazing, and the wine is equally as good!"
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "outstanding wine list, food and service in a laid back but energizing setting....the wine and food prices are so very reasonable for NYC"
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "Service was just OK- we felt ignored for most of the experience. Also there was no heat on so it was pretty freezing in the restaurant. Food was great though!"
    Dined on 11/19/2013
  • "The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Wines are private import and focus is on Italy. The staff is young, friendly and unpretentious yet passionate about wine and food."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "Excellent quality. Keep coming back for more, and the gnocchi keep getting better."

  • "My boyfriend and I trucked it to NYC to have a dinner and see a show for a birthday celebration. Although In Vino was a great restaurant, I wouldn't recommend it if you need to be in the theatre district at a specific time. It took us about 45 minutes to get to the show via a cab. However, the experience and the food was great. We HIGHLY recommend the truffle ravioli. It simply melted in your mouth and the flavors were amazing. We started out with 2 appetizers and a salad then shared 2 different pasta dishes. Unfortunately we didn't have time for dessert, but the bill was very reasonable for what we got. The atmosphere is very romantic and just perfect for what we were looking for."
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "Regarding atmosphere: Although the seats are wooden and could not be considered sumptuous, we were comfortable. The ceiling is a curved stucco grotto-like affair about 18 feet up. The overall ambience is cozy and intimate. When the place fills up, the noise level rises, but we could still talk. We had a liter bottle of chianti which was very good and enough for five of us to have about a glass a half. Dinner (3 apps and 5 pasta entrees) and wine came to about $150 before tip - an amazing value. Portions were moderate except for the lasagna which was large. Great pasta. This place attracts a young, hip crowd and although our group is a few years away from getting theirs hips replaced we felt comfortable and enjoyed In Vino."
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "We tried two starters and two mains; the food was average. No noticeable flavours for dishes that would have been expected to have some (e.g. burrata, artichokes). The pasta was overcooked. The setting is actually quite uncomfortable (narrow tables, wooden benches with paper-thin "cushions") in spite of the seemingly romantic rustic atmosphere. Very disappointing."
    Dined on 10/18/2013
  • "I've been to in vino several times and have never had a bad meal or experience. It's one of my favorite places. The ravioli is a must!"
