Food was amazing. We had the Eggplant Parmesan, which was the best we ever had. Also had the antipasto plate which had a wonderful variety of meats, cheeses and olives. A wonderful bread basket and the Tiramisu was excellent. We were lucky to have Dino serve us. So very nice. We will definitely be back. Our new favorite Italian restaurant! Thank you Dino for a wonderful dining experience. We could not of picked a better place to go out to, after a very long pandemic!

D’Vino is lovely for special occasions! The ambiance is lovely, and it’s really nice by the windows. Service was great, the chef (or owner, unsure) came over multiple times to explain the specials and ask us how we were enjoyed our meals. Very good cocktails, too. Will definitely come back!

The food was very good but the service was not. The owner was very kind and attentive and we're aware that COVID-19 has made it difficult finding good help. But, we had reservations for 8:00 PM and didn't get our first appetizer until 9:30 PM. Hopefully, they can resolve those issues in the future.

D'Vino is a rare find of the best Italian food and family recipes. Dino has poured his heart and soul into this establishment. I have taken friends there for dinner three times recently and everyone has raved about the food, the atmosphere and great treatment by Dino and his staff. Best Italian food experience in Madison!

Incredible and authentic Italian food! Start with the best calamari you’ve ever had and fly straight to Italy on a plate! I can always tell a good restaurant when the owner is right there with the staff ensuring each plate is a wonderful experience for each customer. Thank You, D’Vino for a fabulous Saturday night!

People who have never had authentic Italian cuisine, wouldn't understand this, but this is just like eating a home cooked meal. There is no place better with such good quality and value.

We ventured out of our year-long Covid isolation and treated ourselves to the SCRUMPTIOUS D'Vino - what an incredible experience! Fantastic cocktails, wine, apps and dinner, all COVID-safe. It was actually kind of thrilling; a very special night. Dino is so warm and welcoming and "can do!" Before we left last night, we made reservations for dinner next week. 'Nuff said. "Buon appetito" is BACK!

A fantastical evening out with my sweetheart. Dino, the ultimate host, fabulous decor as well as food. Intimate evening made very special with Dino's special talent of weaving his families food history onto each plate. A much needed evening out. SO special. We look forward to our next adventure there.

Tried to reschedule cancelled dinner reservations from the night before where our "deposit" was held. Booked brunch the next day since there were open tables, their FB and website all mentioned brunch. Got there and they were closed and held that deposit as well.

I brought my best friend here to celebrate her return to Wisconsin. I am gluten intolerant, and they graciously accommodated my restrictions, including GF breadsticks and crostini. The owner stopped by regularly to check in on us and tell us about the specials (including the over the top delicious swordfish which we ordered). The ambiance was lovely and we ended up spending over 3 hours nibbling on cichetti and swordfish and sipping wine. It was a perfect night.

D'Vinos is a fabulous hidden gem just blocks from the Square. The menu options for brunch were extremely varied and I wanted to try them all. I highly recommend the Bellini - they are made with fresh peach juice.

My friend and I decided to go to the Movie night last Thursday and had a FANTASTIC time!! Roman Holiday was the perfect backdrop to our delicious four course meal. The staff was absolutely wonderful and went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed and were enjoying ourselves to the fullest. Each food course was better than the next, very impressed and will 100% be coming back soon!!

We were there for Thursday movie night and price fixe dinner with wine. I think it was a good value. The food and wine are of very high quality but it’s quite rich. My friend and I split one entree and took the other home. The staff is knowledgeable and courteous and the owner checked with us a couple of times. Looking forward to our next visit.
