We visited on Monday for my a birthday dinner. It was a very very quiet evening that night. The first impression when we enter the resto was very calm and romantic. Two row of racks filled with wines makes you felt like you are dining...in a wine cave. We are lead to our table which was specially decorated for us for this special occasion. The menu price was very reasonable for such ambience and service.More

Food and wine were ok tasted quite nice. However, we found hair in one of the condiments and were a lil' throw off at the beginning of the dining experience. Service has room to improve.

Food : Duck Risotto - smell like vomit, but tasted good. Wagyu Burger - taste a little bit like canned beef. Lobster Fettucini - lobster was a lil bit soft. The rest is somewhat dry. Service : Staff is friendly. Ambient : Relaxing and peaceful...Price : Reasonable price, it goes hand in hand with the quality of the food.More

We had our dinner at "VINZ", a wine cellar/retail/bistro, adjacent to Vino Vino Bistro. Despite the ownership is different, both joints shared the same food menu catered by the excellent kitchen of Vino Vino Bistro. Surprisingly there was no wine-by-the-glass option at VINZ. They only...sold wines by the bottle but would allow customer to deposit any unfinished bottle at their chiller. Most wines sold there are of Premium and Super Premium quality, and reasonably priced. Do not be deceived by the short food menu there, most dishes (+special of the day) are very well thought out. I particularly love their smoked duck risotto with porcini mushrooms. The service staffs were super friendly and knowledgeable, they even accommodated our choice of BGM upon request. All in all, a worthy dining experience in KK.More

A cozy bistro serving good food and nice selection of wine. We went there for a cocktail event. The braised lamb, cold cuts, fresh oysters and cheese platter were delectable. For your caffeine fix, they serve great coffee too. A doorstep away from Imago, it's...a perfect place to wine and dine with your special one after some retail therapy. Not to mention friendly service.More

Last time we went there, and order just a drink, they takes around 30min or more for just a drink. Not sure just for humor or what, 100% not recommended.

Came here on a recommendation but were disappointed. Lovely wine but appalling service. Sat outside and had to go in to ask for an order to be taken. Got the bill but again had to go in to pay. Wouldn't recommend!

Service was spectacular! We had the caprese salad and croquettes. Quality of the food was 110% but very small servings. Absolutely delicious though! The wine we had was also very good and not overly expensive for kk standards. Great night overall.

We have been in borneo for a week. This was the first place where drinks all came out quickly and our food all came out at the same time. The service was by far the best we have experienced here and the food was very...good. You can tell that they make their own pasta. It was also very cosy and not too loud like most places. :)More

Italian Restaurant. Good food but the portion is small. Plenty of wines to choose!. Cozy environment. The restaurant is currently under renovation so its better you make a reservation beforehand. Price a bit high compare to other establishment but its still affordable.

Second time here and now to have brunch as we enjoyed the first time. Ordered steak medium to well done but unfortunately it was well done. Service was still good as the staff were very attentive. However, one waiter uniform reeks of dampness so please...take note. Wine drinkers will definitely enjoy this place.More

I visited Vino Vino last week for dinner and was very impressed seeing this was my first time out in Kinabalu. While the menu is not large it has something for everyone and as other reviewers have said a great wine selection. The service was...also very good and attentive to every need. From a casual coffee and cake to a romantic dinner to a party with friends Vino Vino has it all and is a great place to enjoy a great glass of wine, a good whisky or just a great meal with family and friends. Looking forward to my next visit.More
