Welcome to Dua Vino (open for dinner) + The Bar (our 3rd floor restaurant and bar open for lunch and dinner).

Our main floor restaurant offers a contemporary Italian cuisine that will tantalize your taste buds with dishes like baci di mama with truffle oil, fritto misto, scallops, and a 28-day dry aged ribeye. But don't forget to save room for our famous Mama Drita's cheesecake. As you step inside, the atmosphere will immediately transport you to a world of ambiance, with perfectly dimmed lights, hand-painted walls, and upbeat jazz music setting the mood for a memorable evening.

Our third floor restaurant and bar boasts it's own menu with shareable entrees like flatbreads, steak tips and a mouth-watering wagyu burger. With windows that fully open it is quite the spot for lunch or dinner with a view.

Our restaurants are housed in a beautifully renovated historic building in the heart of downtown South Lyon, where no detail was overlooked in preserving its original character.

    We have been here a few times for date nights. First night our waiter was amazing, kind friendly and very knowledgeable. He helped us enjoy our evening and experience with Dua Vino. Unfortunately, we forgot his name (tall gentleman with blonde hair). We came in last night, we were sat and forgot about. Waited for service for over 15 minutes. We were finally acknowledged our drinks were taken care of because of the confusion with however their rotation goes. The manager came over and apologized she happened to be up stairs when we were sat. She was kind and very attentive. We ordered our meals and when they were brought out I received the meal I ordered but my partner was given the wrong dish. It was not our night apparently. The waitress came over and immediately addressed the issue. Took the incorrect plate. 15 mins later returned with his correct meal. She did make sure my partner was content with his wine and reassurance his meal was on its way. Overall when we ate our meals… everything was delectable!!! The food is phenomenal! Reminds me of Italy! Reminds me of my grandmother’s meals and all the flavor and love that should go into a meal.

    This is easily my new favorite place. Let’s start with your staff. They are absolutely amazing! I am Celiac and your staff was very helpful when it came to helping me identify what is or isn’t gluten feee in your menu. They did everything with a smile. Honestly there aren’t enough words to explain how great they are. The food is delicious and just the right proportions are served. The ambiance of your restaurant is wonderful! A classy, modern and intimate vibe to Duo Vino. I will definitely be back. Thank you for a great evening.

    We dined here on a Thursday evening, so it wasn't crowded at all. There's a full bar upstairs but you can't get cocktails in the dining room? Why? The wine list is arranged by price within each region, not by style, so it was difficult to pair with our meal. Our server, while polite, knew nothing about wine, so she couldn't make any recommendations. We asked for salt and pepper when our food arrived, then waited over 10 minutes for it before we finally had to ask a different server for help. Of course, our food was cold by then. A birthday celebration was noted in the reservation, but they didn't provide a dessert or anything as recognition. So the food was good, but the lack of professional service made the evening a bit disappointing.

    Dual Vino is a quaint and fantastic restaurant. Booking reservations, via this app, and noting that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, we had one of the most remarkable and memorable dining experiences. Upon arrival, there was a welcome note on our table acknowledging our anniversary, signed by the owner, GM and head chef. Shortly after being seated, we were served a complimentary glass of Prosecco. Now, how many fine dining establishments do that? The food was perfectly prepared and the Italian wine choice, was a perfect compliment making the entire evening an awesome experience. Put this place on your bucket list. We will go back, even it's not our anniversary. 10 Stars!

    We waited 40 minutes for a 7:00 PM reservation and no one checked in with us as we waited. We were the only people waiting for a table. We were asked if we had a reservation towards the end of the wait. We had checked in and the hostess saw us waiting the entire time.

    The ambiance is top notch. The furnishings are gorgeous. We were greeted by the owner, Tom. Our server Jackie was excellent. My barramundi fish was slightly burned so the entire outside edge wasn't edible. The chicken marsala was very good as was the special Valentines Day chocolate "cake". They gave a rose to each female diner, and a week later it's still looks great. We enjoyed the evening very much.

    Food was delicious and cooked as ordered (I had lamb chops so I ordered it medium rare and that’s what I got)! We also had arancini and fritto misto as appetizers and both were very good too! Nice wine selection as well. I might say that the service was outstanding! We were there on the night of a snowstorm and I’m pretty sure that in many places people would just be eager to go home and wouldn’t be pleased that we were crazy enough to drive there…We’ll go back for sure!!

    We had been hearing some good things recently about Dua Vino from local friends and decided to give it a try after a few months’ hiatus. The whole experience was amazing. Our server, Brian, was new. In fact, we were the first customers of his career as a server. He was attentive and made a great recommendation for my meal. The manager (didn’t catch her name) recommended an awesome Cabernet to go along with my meal. My wife had chicken scallopini and loved it. The arancini were almost the size of a baseball, crispy on the outside and creamy and delicious inside. The Caesar salad was fresh and crisp and loaded with Parmesan cheese and a homemade Caesar dressing. Note to any of you hesitant to try a Caesar because of the fish paste in the dressing: it was there and so subtle that I’d encourage you to try anyway. My wife falls into that category and reported she enjoyed her taste. My entree, Paccheri con Crème di Ricotta is a rigatoni dish with ricotta, Italian sausage, garlic, fresh spinach, parmesan, cracked pepper and roasted portabella. It was fantastic. We will be going back soon. Thank you Dua Vino!

    Really great experience. The ambience is great…probably time to stop the Christmas music, but at least it was jazzy. The food was incredible across the board. Our server Dalton was wonderful. He thoughtfully answered our questions and made fantastic recommendations. He mastered the art of not checking on us too much, but always being close by and available. We’ll definitely go back. Oh and get the bread - huge portion but so good!

    Very nice place to eat. Service is great, food is good, drinks are just right. Portions are large. We shared an entrée of grilled salmon. The only downside is the sound level. Good place for a special occasion.
