Wonderful place for great Italian food. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
The gardens are pretty and an ideal place to sit after some food and relax with a drink or coffee.
The menu is easy to read with English translations. Be prepared to eat until you burst. The servings are filling and delicious. Would highly recommend the filler steak which is the size of your average rump in the UK.
There are little grottos in the grounds which I assume you can rent for a stay.
Well worth a visit but you will need to book a table if it's on a Sunday as most
Large groups eat out at that time.

Thank Shaun D

We are always treated well by the managers and staff at Ristorante Il Vignale but we do save our visits for special occasions. Easter Monday was our special occasion this time or as it is known Pasquetta. We were welcomed, shown to our table and served a glass of Prosecco immediately and lunch continued for a leisurely 3 hours, not rushing, no delays we felt as though each and every course was timed just for us. The food, as always, delicious, wine what can we say, lovely and a 'digestivo Italiano' with coffee to complete the day. Can't wait for our next visit, thanks Il Vignale!

We travel to Rapino every year to visit family. We have driven by Il Vignale Restaurant many times, and my husband would always point out that it was a schoolhouse many years ago, and that he had attended there.
Finally, on our last trip a few months ago, I convinced my husband to go there for dinner.

To our surprise, although this restaurant is situated in a small town, it is top-notch!!!
Although we are New Yorkers, with discriminating taste, who have eaten at many fine restaurants, we found this restaurant to offer extremely well prepared food with an amazing variety. We loved the large variety of appetizers and entrees, which were all wonderfully prepared.

The meal was so enjoyable!!! Our compliments to the chef!!!

We will definitely return to this restaurant every time we travel to Rapino.

This restaurant is a little bit special, so many good restaurants in this area, but Il Vignale is a cut above the rest. The extra touches, like a glass of prosecco as you sit down and a small plate before you order. Many choices on the menu and the waiter understood my husband has a nut allergy and was very reassuring. The fillet steak in balsamico was to die for, barely need to be cut it was so soft. The terrace in the garden is a really pretty area to sit, with its rockery, waterfall and view of the mountain, we will definitely be returning!
