Vino is what it is, good food in Downtown Brooklyn. The brunch is a very good option for a casual dining experience. With the open window the street noise and conversation does get a little much at times. Remember this IS BROOKLYN. Overall I love this place, yes, because it's Brooklyn.

What an amazing find! Great food, atmosphere and service. Close enough to BAM for a pre-performance meal. Reasonable prices, particularly given the quality of the meal. We will absolutely be back often.

Caffe e Vino is charming. The food was delicious. We sat in the front and the noise level was loud. The 2 women sitting next to us added to the decibel level. Perhaps the back is quieter or if you go at an off time.

If you just need to grab a bite before a show at BAM, this place will do. But it’s really mediocre on every level.

Terrific! Of the many Italian restaurants for date spots in Brooklyn, the value for what you’re getting here is unbeatable. Food is amazing, especially in all their traditional entrees, but what makes it special is that the servers are very friendly and really do want locals to come in and feel comfortable and known. This was our first time there and we are sure to be back!

On a raw winter night, what could be better than ducking into Caffe e Vino for homemade pasta with mushrooms and beautiful roasted pork? This place is cozy and warm, the service is professional and prompt and the food delicious.

Very good service, cozy, warm atmosphere. Some of our dishes like the meatballs and cannelloni special were somewhat flavorless although my wife’s lasagna and our guest’s shrimp dish were good. Desserts were excellent.
Overall I would recommend as a good neighborhood eatery.
