Went just before closing time. Great selection on wine and beer. Staff visited with us as if we were long time customers. Right next door to the Mezona Hotel.

We chose this restaurant due to it's location (near the Mesa Arts Center) & it's Gluten Free menu. It was an excellent choice for the reasons chosen & because the food & service were impeccable!! Already looking forward to our next visit there! There were 10 of us & we ordered 10 different items! All were fabulous - from hamburger... More

Our first selection, an hour wait, found Il Vinaio. Had a linguine dish. Excellent! A glass of Chardonnay to start followed by a glass of Cabernet franc. No dessert. Too full. Nice clean establishment, fairly quiet, local greens and bread. I liked and you may too.

Met up with friends for happy hour, which turned into three hours. The staff was great, very knowledgeable about wine and made perfect suggestions. The food was classic with some modern twist. This cozy little spot is perfect for relaxing with friends. Had such a good time I forget to take a picture. I can't wait to go back.

Went with some friends for the Saturday morning brunch. The food was fabulous, our waitress was excellent and entertaining, and the decor was very unique. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously and plan to go back as soon as we can. We couldn't figure out why we had not been there before. It was quiet enough that we could enjoy everyone's conversation....

The service was great and the salmon was very well cooked. Others at my table seemed to enjoy their meals. The desserts were good, not outstanding. I think the best was the cake with mascarpone. There is a nice beer and wine list. You could dress up if you'd like, but it felt more on the casual side to me.... More

Yes a nice and friendly place which we visited at a quiet lunchtime. The meal was good the service was great, the owner served us and was very friendly. It was a quiet time around town in April of 2016 so I found it a little eerie almost deserted but maybe it was siesta time. We would go back again... More
