This is one of the local restaurants we visit over and over again. It's a good place to meet friends in the bar and then cross into the restaurant for dinner, then go back to the bar for more drinks. They have a waiter who's been there for years and knows exactly what they can do (off menu too). The... More

Had reservations for a month. Vino's told us they lost the reservation, even after showing proof of receipt on the phone, we were seated in the noisy bar area. Server tried to make up for the problem, but in the end the poor drinks and food just made this a bad experience. Margarita was lacking in taste and substance. Bruscetta... More

My husband and I ate dinner here on Valentine' s Day and it was so enjoyable. The wait staff did an excellent job and as always the food was delicious as well. We also brought our own wine, $15 uncorking fee did apply.

We go there for almost every special occasion and we love to take other family members there when they come to visit as well! We typically begin with some great cocktails in the adjoining RG Books bar... and then go over to Vino's for dinner... I... More

Four of us went for an evening meal. Do not be put off by the quirky entrance which seems to be through an antique book shop. The bar and restaurant have atmosphere. The staff were very good and new the menu and wines. The food was good, hot and well presented. The wine was good and reasonably priced. This restaurant... More

Having lived in Cedar Rapids for the past 40 years, I don't know why I tend to forget this absolutely excellent Italian restaurant. However, our friends invited us out recently to reacquaint ourselves with "their favorite" restaurant. And boy were they right! I had a delicious Scallop Rissoto and my wife ordered a special fish dinner - both were outstanding.... More

I've been here a number of times of the years. While the food remains good, it's not outstanding. The value is just not here. It’s overpriced for the choices. Worse, the service seems to be in decline or I've just had a string of bad luck & bad attitudes. I feel when I dine there it seems an inconvenience to... More

We love Vino's and Rj Books. We love the atmosphere, the food and the hospitality. It brings back memories of when my husband proposed to me during dinner 23 years ago. We just keep coming back. You have to try the Baked Mozzarella as an appetizer. You will love it as well as there homemade desserts! Yummy!
