Had a great time with family and friends. Did find it difficult to hear the conversation sometimes due to how loud the area was. Our server was very friendly and helpful.

前菜は美味しかったです。
が、メインのエッグプラントパルメジャンは、なぜか真っ黒のオーバークック。サーバーは料理がどうであるか?チェックにも来ない、追加のパルメザンチーズが要るか?も聞きに来ない、持ち帰りのboxのオッファーもない。
高評価を見てわざわざ行ってみましたが、おそらく1度の訪問で十分か、と思います。

Pros: Great food! Best Italian we have had in three years in South Bend area.

Cons:
Reserved via Open Table and specified it was for two birthdays. Very slow (had to ask twice) for silverware and bread plates for appetizers to all place settings at the table. During meal, apparent that waitress was not aware of the birthday request on Open Table. Lackluster effort for two birthdays at one table. Basically set down a box with two cannolis in it and walked away. Not a big deal but you should double check any special requests made on OT.

Food EXCELLENT as always!! (No "out-of-the can" food here.) Large servings too! Staff friendly. Music wasn't loud nor nerve-racking either. Definitely worth the 40 minute drive.

I had special request of cup cakes for my 93 year old Mother n laws birthday event but the restaurant said the received no such request. So open table dropped the ball.
When I requested them from the waitress and showed her mu confirmed reservations she explained they don't have cup cakes and never received the request. It would of been nice to know before hand and we could have brought our own.

Our server was energetic and attentive. My friends enjoyed their meals. I had the zoodles with shrimp, but think their recipe could be tweaked. It was watery and I prefer my own version, but I wanted to see how Papa Vinos would make them.

Salmon Limone was cooked nicely, but lacking in vegetables like most of their entrees. Zoodles and Shrimp was excellent . Dessert menu held some surprises: Raspberry Cheesecake was terrific. Italian Cream Cake came slathered with a caramel sauce, not mentioned in the menu description, that masked the other flavors and ruined the dessert for me.
Service was quick and courteous.

We were traveling and looking for a nice place to eat. We found Papa Vino’s on Open Table. We had a reservation that we made almost last minute, so when we arrived at the restaurant, we were seated immediately. After a long day of driving, we really appreciated that.
Our salads were fresh and delicious. We ordered pasta, and both entrees arrived piping hot. They too were delicious, and the portions were quite large.
Our server, Lauren, was delightful. She greeted us immediately, was friendly and attentive. She is a real gem!

Great dining spot. Our waitress was amazing. Food and drinks were very good. We are in the patio are which offered a nice view.
Would have liked linen rather than plastic tablecloths.

They always impress me. Excellent food, great service, and so friendly. I always say I'm getting something different but always order the Chicken Parm. So So good and plenty of it. Home made bread is always the best.
