Very good food and wine. Interesting menu, we enjoyed it for our Valentine's Day dinner!
Don’t waste your time or money! Went this past Saturday and the service was absolutely horrible. I researched this restaurant’s website and didn’t have the wines as listed nor entree or dessert. Very misleading! I could have let that go perhaps but the service was so bad I felt compelled to leave this review. We even had to ask for our bill repeatedly and he didn’t even bring a pen to sign, had to use my own ... very poor!!
Food was great as usual but the restaurant Seemed a bit understaffed for a Friday night
We were sat at our table, waited ten minutes and had to ask if we were going to get served. Service was poor thru out our dinner with our party having to ask for bread, then butter , then oil, then balsamic then water, then refills, etc., etc,,,,,,,The food was great. But the five of us in our party were very unhappy with our dinner service experience . No attention was given to have the dinner be enjoyed from the start to the end.
Excellent food with opportunity to order from their menu or neighboring Sugo's (same management).
Recently, my brother and sis-in-law who are big, high-end St. Louis "foodies," chose Via Vino for my birthday dinner. Now it is my favorite restaurant! They knew it would be perfect, given my expectations. The tasteful, luxurious decor with a touch of glamor is something I appreciate when done as well as it is at Via Vino. The oversized, crystalized art of Marilyn Monroe is striking and unique. Still, like every restaurant, it is all about the selection and cuisine.
I love to invite friends and business associates there. After all, one of the best things about the dining experience is the thrill of introducing others to a phenomenal "new" restaurant find.
One of my guests had just returned from Italy. I myself have been to Florence. So we engaged in a great conversation about how mouthwatering the food is there; truly some of the best in the world.
Via Vino exceeds every expectation magnificently. Besides the intimate ambiance, there is a diverse selection. For example, if you like, you can also view the menu from the restaurant next door, and vice-versa, since they are jointly owned, and order from the other menu should you desire. That is culinary brilliance!
Paramount to all else is the preparation. In fact, many ingredients are organic and locally grown. My guest and I concurred, ultimately Via Vino's cuisine is not just reminiscent of our dining experiences in Italy, but genuinely authentic to the memories we had each savored from our travel experiences.
Exemplary of high style ambiance, classically excellent service, very reasonable prices, especially given other restaurants in the Ladue/Plaza Frontenac area, plus a superb selection (two menus to choose while at one table) of unforgettable dishes, will make this a soon to be well-known dining secret among some of the most stylish and discerning individuals around. Whether you have dined around the world or not, you will greatly appreciate the authenticity of Via Vino's exquisite excellence.
Service was horrible.
We made a reservation for a birthday celebration. We both had the house salad. The salad was good and the dressing very tasty, but too much dressing made the salad a bid soggy. I had the ravioli special (crab and scallop) which was delicious. The cream sauce was amazing. I had to bring some of it home as I could not finish it and it lasted me for two more lunches. My husband had the veal scaloppine and they were very good too. The wine choices are good. The atmosphere very nice, except this night there were some very loud women at the bar. I was disappointment that the occasion (birthday) was not acknowledged as many restaurants now would offer a small dessert to the birthday guest.
The food and service was great and the noise level good.
Great service, cozy atmosphere on a cold night. Had the Corvina (fish) and it was spectacular.
Our evening was a lovely experience! We are a group of ladies who dine out monthly and this was our November choice!
Horrible service. Bad part is when you look at old reviews (from 3 years ago) on other websites they have been having the same issue of poor service.
This is one of our favorites places to dine when family and friends come to town. Everyone loved their food and service is great. Del Pietro has great restaurants!!!
Consistently good food and pleasant atmosphere...although it is noisy. Great neighborhood spot.
Appetizer forgotten served after entree long wait for dessert disappointing
