Thank you for your review! All I have to say is that you would have probably been better off at Olive Garden or Neighborhood Italian Kitchen. Those restaurants I recommended are what I call American-Italian. We are REAL Italian. Our portions are not huge because...More

I've been patronizing 'Violino' since it opened over 20 years ago. The quality never waivered and my recent experience was delicious.

We are a small fine dining restaurant specializing in traditional and authentic Italian cuisine. All of our items are made from scratch on premises from the bread to the gelato. The interior decor is old world and eclectic with a strong opera and classical music influence. Our service is professional and attentive . We look forward to providing you with an Italian culinary experience outside of Italy. Buon Appetito
