Pound for Pound, Perhaps the Best Italian Eatery in Town

It's not an Italian restaurant, but it executes its salads and panini with serious aplomb and grace. Unsurpassed Italian food 'feel'. Flavors could not be better. What needs to be crisp is crisp, and everything is fresh and smells wonderful. Perfect execution every time. Sandwich ingredient combinations are well thought-out and make it difficult to choose. Their egg and truffle oil dish is superlative. I look forward to my next meal there!

The best paninis in the city by far. Room is tiny and cozy, usually only one server who handles the crowds well. This place is always packed, and rightly so. Go with your date, have some fantastic Italian sandwiches and wine, and DON'T forget dessert, because it's fantastic as well!

Great wine list, excellent panini! Bartender was friendly and talkative. I definitly made the mistake of going with 6 people! We practically took uo the entire dining space!! Next time I'll only go with 2 other people, max!

My husband and I loved this place. It's great for a cozy date night or place to meet a couple friends for wine and a snack. We had the antipasti plate, the quattro panini plate (there is one with an olive spread...amazing) and a portabello mushroom salad special AND a carafe of Sangiovese for $50! And it was all delicious! I can't wait to go back. And the cute waitress/waiter/hosts duo was friendly and helpful.

When it comes to simple but good Italians paninis with a good glass of wine, Ino is one of my favourite places. It is small and crouded but I love it.

We loved this place! Great bruschetta, lots of variety! Very fresh ingredients, too. Loved our paninis (apple, walnut, and a mild cheese & prosciutto, tomato and mozz). A nice half bottle of wine at a great price made this meal nearly perfect! Will be back, can't beat the value and the tastiness. Service was fine as well!

I am in love with 'ino. It is a great, romantic spot to go post midnight when you crave fabulous wine and a little snack. The quattro panini plate is great, as is the antipasti. It's cheap, and the panini tastes like little spots of heaven in your mouth. The service is wonderful, the place is small and charming. Perfect for a blustery, snowy evening or a quiet summer night.

It is amazing how little is necessary to get it right. With the assorted starter plate to share and a crispy crunchy warm sandwich each you have all you need. The winelist sorted by grapes as well as producers is heaven for all italian wine fanatics. Choose the Chianti reserva, rich and crisp in character, and you have put together a sensual nipping and picking finger food play, eat and tasty dinner. Take your best friend or whom ever you want to make your friend. This evening will create memories!
