Vinum is the result of the love for Italian food and wine! Executive Chef and restaurateur Massimo Felici’s passion for food started as a young boy growing up in New York. Now he proudly introduces Vinum; the concept offer's a fun menu with small dishes, appetizers and an extensive wine list by the glass program.

Felici felt Staten Island was missing a place where guests could share small dishes and appetizers as their whole meal. He's confident that Vinum will satisfy this need.

    Dinner was Great. Service was outstanding. The food was beyond amazing. The steak was really fatter however so it didnt get eaten. For such and expensive plate should choose better steak. Gratitudy was added to the check automatically. Beside these things every thing else was beyond Outstanding.

    This was our second time at Vinum. The first time we went for my birthday and had the meatballs, short ribs, and lasagna. Everything was delicious. That time we sat in the front room by the window. It was a very cozy and romantic atmosphere . Last night we celebrated our anniversary and went during restaurant week. We sat in the back room, which has a very homey feel. I had the mussels, duck, and cheesecake. The service was amazing and the food was phenomenal!

    Food was excellent. We especially liked the lamb and rosemary meatballs and the gnocchi with lamb ragu. The pistachio mousse dessert was tasty. Service was disappointing. Did not like that I was overcharged for wine ($12 on menu but $15 on the bill). Maybe it was understaffed for a Saturday? Surprised for a Michelin rated restaurant.

    If you want to enjoy excellent food then Vinum is your choice. The legume soup, meatballs, pate and beet salad are the appetizers ordered by our group of four. Each one was delicious. Entrees were duck breast in a cocoa fig reduction and served in slices with fingerling potatoes and asparagus, rabbit served with polenta and asparagus, and salmon we’re our choices Desserts, wine and bread rounded out the meal. Staff was very knowledgeable about the wine and explained a dish when asked. Seating was comfortable . There are three different rooms in which to eat and even an outdoor garden when the weather turns warmer.

    Anne, our all around server, was wonderful making sure we had everything we needed and that all was going well. The oysters were cool and sweet, beet salad divine and the rabbit? Well, just wow. Topped off with a warm apple cake with vanilla ice cream. Delicious on a rainy windy eve after an afternoon in NYC for the theater.

    Vinum Wine Bar & RestauarantResponded on January 22, 2024
    Hi Christina, i apologize for your experience on Saturday at vinum. you were sitting in the back room of our restaurant which is indoors and heated, you were not seated in the middle of the restaurant, you had a corner table. i came to your table several times to check on you and your response every time was that everything was excellent. if you had mentioned that you were cold, i would have accommodated you by raising the heater or moving you to our other room. on the way out you said everything was great, a little chilly but great. and i apologized and mentioned that when it gets so cold, we have the extra heaters on and it can get challenging. i hope you give us another try in the near future, this is a family business and we try our best to keep our customers happy. Best Deya Owner

    Looked up and saw this was a 5 Star Micheline Restaurant. We were meeting old friend, and we like good food. The Restautant was nicely decorated, and the smell of fine food seemed present. We were walked thru two small dining rooms (2) and to an enclosed outdoor patio. Picture a big plastic bag attempting to look like a tent. It was a windy night and very cold. We felt the draft and our feet felt the chill. We asked if we could be moved inside, but they stated they were fully booked, and those seats were taken. We tried other tables in the room to avoid the drafts. but all of them were uncomfortable. We took off our coats and took our seats, but we could have worn our winter coats the whole time. Eventually the put out a heat blower but that was also awkward and then created extreme warmth to extreme cold in 5-minute cycles. Whenever the wind gusted you wondered in the room would collapse or blow away. We enjoyed our food as best we could Everything took longer than it should have and I think the food was good, but it was difficult to enjoy with the temperature. The staff was friendly, but they were defiantly short staffed. They worked hard and I respect their efforts, but management is not doing the right thing by the customers and the staff. They needed more people. I may give them another chance in the future, but it'll have to be 70 degrees outside,
    Vinum Wine Bar & RestauarantResponded on January 19, 2024
    Hi Mr. John, we apologize for the experience you had with us last Saturday. we have 2 large heavy tents which are sealed and heated, sometimes when it's very cold windy out we bring extra heaters to keep our customers comfortable. i came to your table several times and every time i came and asked how everything was, i was told everything was excellent, i wish you would have told you were not happy instead of telling me everything was great, i would have done something to accommodate you, even thought we were fully booked. our restaurant is a family business and we are always doing our best to keep our customers happy, as you know these days bad reviews can potentially hurt us financially. our restaurant has received the Michelin Bib Gourmand award 4 year in a row Not 5 stars.

    The food was amazing and the service was excellent. Our seats were right by the front window, which unfortunately, was very drafty and chilly on a rainy January evening. And while valet parking is a great feature, the parking attendant was not very attentive. Aside from a couple of weather-related issues, a very enjoyable experience overall.

    The food is absolutely delicious at Vinum. The team are very nice and accommodating. My only issue is they sat us in the back yard, and it was very cold. We had to keep our jackets on. We let the waiter know, he said the stand up heater they normally have was broken. There was a floor heater further away, but it wasn’t doing much. I will absolutely be back, but will request seating indoors in the winter.

    Food, as always, very good. I was surprised about bread service because we were at the other location on Friday & it was different and the bread was a bit stale. Appetizer was great as we shared the Farmers anti, entrees all good & very nice wine selection. When we received the check, it was incorrect. There was another tables food on our bill? There were 2 tables dining in the restaurant???? And as a server, you check the bill prior to presenting, correct???

    We made a reservation in advance so we were quite disappointed when our table wasn’t in the restaurant, but in a plastic tent in yard. It’s November so it’s quite chilly out even with the space heaters. Our waiter wasn’t able to answer any questions regarding the menu or make a wine recommendation. I truly don’t enjoy writing a poor review, but it was very expensive for no ambiance and not even sitting inside a restaurant.
    Vinum Wine Bar & RestauarantResponded on November 21, 2023
    Hi Erica, we are so sorry of your disappointment during your recent visit. our back yard is actually winterized and very comfortable, we host a lot of parties there all year round and never have any issues, in fact last Saturday the 11th we had a wedding with 52 people back there , but if you would have told us we would have accommodated you in one of our other 3 rooms. we apologize about our waiter, we recently hired new staff and they are still learning the menu, we will make sure they come to management when they don't have answers to customers questions. we wished you would have asked for our manager and give us the chance to correct your concerns while in the restaurant instead of posting a negative review that could potentially hurt our family business. we hope you enjoyed the food
