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!

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.

I know that sounds melodramatic, but Ino honestly has changed my life - the food is THAT delicious. The truffled egg toast is superb - to the point where I actually have it mentioned on the back of my business card. The pate tremezzini is also scrumptious. Meats & cheese can't be beat (the only one I didnt like was the ricotta - try and substitute that one out). I love good food and good wine - this place is the spot to enjoy it in. One of my favorites in manhattan.

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.

It's not clear Adam Smith had an 8-table panini restaurant in mind when he developed the Division of Labor theory. But by boasting about the benefits of doing one thing, and doing it well, the classical economist may have indirectly led to the creation of some exquisite cuisine. 'Ino is a small restaurant with a small menu, but it has come tantalizingly close to perfecting the panino. From pesto and prosciutto to sweet onions and fontino cheese, the fresh ingredients are complemented by thin, crusty ciabatta from the nearby Blue Ribbon Bakery. Starting bruschetta are almost showstoppers, especially the walnut and sun-dried tomato pesto and roasted garlic with rucola oil. 'Ino was founded by husband-and-wife team Jason and Jennifer Denton, and eating here feels less like going out than going in to a warm, neighborhood hangout. 'Ino serves salads, antipasta and tramezzini (tea sandwiches with the crusts cut off), but most customers relish the pressed panini, cooked to a delicious crisp. Like a true Italian trattoria, 'Ino offers excellent espresso and a wine list. © (www.foodboyz.com) Find out how you can become a foodboyz.com franchise by sending an email to franchise@foodboyz.com

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!

We'd heard great things about this restaurant and loved 'Inoteca, but 'Ino was awful. The waiter was incredibly rude, the bartender was antagonistic, and when the check was wrong, they looked at us with scorn. While 'Ino's food is delicious, nothing is worth the attitude.
