    Our second visit to D’Vino, and we were not disappointed. This time we were seated in the back area, which was very cozy and quieter than the large table at the front. The service was very friendly and attentive. The food was excellent. We will be back again.

    Went here after proposing to my girlfriend (she said yes). The service was excellent, prompt and personable. The food was delicious and I spent much less than I have at other restaurants in Madison for food and service that is not as good. Would recommend!

    The puttanesca was a delicious special this visit. The portion size was filling without being completely WI large. :). The staff was friendly and attentive. The owner stopped by to deliver the specials and even checked in during my meal. Prices are within the local range, so no surprises there. The cocktails were very good - the gin and tonic made with their orange Italian gin was particularly tasty. They have a unique house cocktail on tap named after the owner’s family, Cinco Nunzeo (sp?); it was perfect as a first cocktail for starting my weekend. Reservations during the weekend seem to be in high demand as I overheard them asking walk-ins to come dine on another day. Verdict: I highly recommend this restaurant for tasty Italian food with a Sicilian flair.

    Dino runs an amazing restaurant full of old family Italian recipes. Him and his staff all make you feel welcome, and take their time to help answer any questions you may have about the menu and wine lists. The food was incredible, our wine selection was perfect, thanks to Dino's help and the rest of the staff were so friendly, attentive and kind. What ever you do, order the "donuts" for desert, they are literally to die for. Will definitely be back. I already made another reservation!! Please support this gem!

    One of the best Italian restaurants in Madison! This small restaurant really shines by offering spectacular food, drinks and service. Waitstaff is friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. The owner visits each table to share the nightly specials—what a treat to talk with him about the food he clearly is passionate about. The meatballs are EXCELLENT—do not visit without trying them!! Nice selection of Italian wines.

    Three of us had an outstanding evening. Swordfish special was outstanding. Two of us had the traditional style. I am a big fan of swordfish. D"Vino's sword fish is the best I have ever had. Better than Sardine and Cento, both of which serve wonderful swordfish.

    Very enjoyable birthday dinner! Loved that they could accommodate my gluten free eating - had more options than most places, especially for an Italian restaurant. A variety of gf pastas instead of the typical rotini substitution. Nice selection of gf crackers for the antipasto plate. Ended up with the prix fixe deal because the waitress said that we basically ordered that anyway, and they allowed me to sub in something gf for the dessert. The owner came and talked to us several times, and all waitstaff were very friendly. Nice portions (not too much or too little), nice outdoor dining space. So glad we chose D'Vino for our night out!

I brought my family here last year and we stayed so long after closing we talked to the owner! Last night we went out with friends and again it was the perfect spot to go!
