    So, the pandemic has messed up my regular visits to local restaurants. I am so sorry that it took so long to visit D'Vino! What a treat. So, I can recall what Little Italy used to be like in NYC. A few blocks of mom and pop restaurants, each serving a delicious selection of Italian American (OR, simply Italian) fare. The best places made you feel at home. THIS is exactly what I felt at D'Vino! We went for Sunday Supper, and started with a few Negronis, both of which were perfect. Seriously. The barman knew exactly how not to overdo it. We followed that with the hose burrata, with homemade tomatoes in a jam jar and crostini. Exactly how it should be served. Secondi was the chef recommendation of sword fish, finished with lemon, asparagus, peas and fave beans (with capers, natch). Again, exactly what I needed for Sunday supper. My better half had the pasta special, which was a ravioli with pesto and cream sauce. Said better half has an issue with mushrooms, so the chef/owner made sure to hold them to the side. However, he cam out to chat with us about the chestnut mushrooms he was using, and said the next time, perhaps my wife would trust him and allow him to prep some for the side (disclosure: they DO have a popcorn texture and taste when done by a talented chef!). We finished with a sweet wine for my loving wife and a limoncello for my as an aperitif, mini cannolis and orange cake with pistachio ice cream for me! Seriously, D'Vino is an amazing restaurant, and I'll be cack later this week for Nona's meatballs and Chianti!!

    The food and ambience are outstanding. Very gracious and attentive service and management. The eggplant parmigiana was as good as any my wife and I have ever had! Shrimp scampi was excellent and the pasta was so fresh and delicious. Chocolate amaretto cake with cherry gelato topped off an excellent meal. We’ll be back!

    Wonderful experience to have the owner (and chef I think) come to table and review the specials of the day! Food was fantastic. Ambience also great. The only odd thing was the threat of fee if you are late to reserved time or cancel late. Made me think twice about whether to book it, but glad I did.

    We went D'Vino for our anniversary. We were not disappointed. We arrived early and were seated right away. We ordered wine and made a selection commenting we want a sweet red and they brought a sample to make sure it was what we wanted. We ordered and the service was very good. The food when it arrived was outstanding. We were impressed with both the food and the service.

    D'Vino provides the total dining experience! The ambiance is inviting, the staff are welcoming, the service is attentive and prompt, the food is divine. The wine list is broad and interesting. For our first visit we ordered a variety of small plates, but we're already looking forward to exploring the dinner menu. The hostess, Robin explained the deep family roots that inspire chef Dino Maniaci; the authenticity of the best kind of Italian dining experience was evident. We're looking forward to becoming regulars!

    Graduation celebration- lovely outdoor dining experience. Was concerned with alternative if bad weather, but we luckily didn’t have an issue. Heard Friday night guests did have to dine in the rain for a bit which would have been very disappointing for my group if that had happened. I would recommend backup plans for poor weather in the future.

    We came on time for our reservation and were told we needed to wait for another hour. The owner/chef was aggressively misogynistic when my wife asked him what was going on, and we stormed out. He literally chased us out then door shouting. Servers and staff looked mortified and I’m sure this wasn’t the first instance of his bad temper.

    Food was excellent. Chef bucked tradition by serving delicious cheese ravioli (with wonderful (gorgonzola sauce) with steak . . . but it was a wonderful combination. Service was pleasant, but one or two requests had to be repeated, and it could have been a little more prompt overall. But it was Easter Sunday night, so that might not be typical.

    The food was fantastic. The tortellini was soo good. We really enjoyed the fried ravioli too. It's also very reasonably priced. It took a while to get our food but they also comped us two glasses of wine for the wait. Nice little spot for date night.
