Great look and feel as you walk in, wonderful wine racks full of unique and intriguing wines. Great sommelier that can help walk you through the complex list. Special wine occasion on this night made it even better! Recommended for a great dinner and wonderful wines.
Improved interior. Noise reduced. 90% of the time over the years has been great. Glad they have added variety go food options.
This place is one of my favorites in ATX! So many reasons to fall in love, they have an amazing wine list, great menu & lovely ambiance! They also have an amazing happy hour, especially their Mondays which is an all Day Happy hour! I always come back for their Goat Cheese and the Mussels! However, today when we came back, they changed their menu! They took out the goat cheese and the mussels recipe changed too! It kinda made me sad because the goat cheese is truly a favorite! The mussels now tastes like curry! I like their old recipe for mussels! Hope they’ll have the goat cheese again!
Really bummed after going to Vino Vino this past weekend. My husband and I used to go frequently in the restaurant’s first few years. Servers were passionate about the wines, and the food, while never Michelin-quality, was always thoughtfully and intentionally prepared. However, after a year or two of having not been to Vino Vino, my husband and I were both very disappointed in our experience this past weekend, and we won’t be returning. Did the owners change? The management? The chef? All of the above?
If you want white, rosé, or sparkling by the glass, you have five options. That’s it... five wines to cover all three of those categories. If you want red, you have another five to choose from. Vino Vino, despite its name, seems a tad more concerned with cocktails st this point. Food-wise, options are okay, but execution leaves something to be desired. I ordered a cheese plate for dinner. The cheeses themselves weren’t bad (Antonelli’s doesn’t offer a bad cheese, so it would be hard to screw that up). However, I was presented with three hunks of refrigerator-cold (should be closer to room temp) cheese on a white plate with a small dollop of something they called a chutney. Toss on some slices of *warm* slightly-toasted grocery store wheat bread, and you’ve got one of the lamest cheese plates in town. Hubby got the burger, which was extremely greasy but quite good. But what happened to those amazing shoestring fries they used to serve, and why were they replaced with Applebee’s-caliber potatoes?
Man, I’m bummed. I had been really looking forward to adding Vino Vino back into our rotation. That won’t be happening anytime soon!
Had to wait 30 minutes for our table even though we had a reservation. Waitress was here and there, mostly there. Dinner was good but not great. Wish they had updated the menu on Open Table to manage our expectations of the ultra limited offerings. I’m sure if we were just looking for a wine bar instead of dinner we might have felt differently. Next time if we just want a glass of wine, I might return.
Not really an italian restaurant, more of a vine bar wilt snack menu
Truly exceptional prime rib on New Year's Eve. Wonderful service and atmosphere.
The food was good. Limited menu but very tasty. Wine choices excellent. Best part we could drink a nice cab and actually hear each other!
Vino Vino has always been a fave for me. Great service, wine selection, and food! Not to mention the awesome happy hour they have going from 5pm-6:30pm. The restaurant has a nice cozy feel, dimly lit and lots of simple but stylish decor. Love it!
Our first meal at Vino Vino since they remodeled. We stopped by on a Saturday evening. It was after the dinner hour, so it was fairly quiet. The ambiance is very nice. I really like the new look, and the large, decorative drapes dampened the noise between the bar and the back dining room. Very nice update, although I do miss the racks of wine on the wall in the back dining area! Our waiter helped us elect a very nice Pinot noir from south Australia. Very nice, well priced. I’m constantly amazed at the depth of wine knowledge in the “younger” wait staff at Vino Vino. When a restaurant spends the time, money and energy to educate their staff on the wine list to that level, impressive! We tried several items on the new menu ... chicken liver mouse was da bomb, the best I’ve had in Austin in quite sometime. The egg in muerre (I’m sure I mis-spelled that), could have used more eggs. With the soft boiled egg in the mix, the dish was delicious. Without the egg, not so much. At least 3 maybe 4 eggs should be used!. The fish dip with chips was good, and sweet potato chips sealed the deal on that. Very good! A very nice re-acquainting visit. Vino Vino is consistently good food, good prices, and great people!
