Francois and Catherine of Locanda Vini E Olii (The owners) have such a high standard for their craft. The food is exquisite. And the wine is so delightful. When you walk in, you feel their warmth just by them saying "Buona sera". The atmosphere can be intimate or like one family party. It's up to you. Love you guys. Lammie

A Unique Dining Experience

Vini & Olii is one of the truly special restaurants in NY- indeed, it's one of my favorites anywhere. Even if the food were only OK, the setting in the old drugstore would make eating there an occasion. However, the food is far more than OK. I've spent a good deal of time in Italy and the warm, familiar, friendly atmosphere provided by Catherine & Francois, combined with the truly authentic cuisine (nothing made up, simulated or adapted)makes you think that you'll be in Tuscany when you walk out instead of Fort Greene! Highly recommended.

From the moment you arrive they treat you like long lost friends. The appetizers are interesting and the freshly made pastas are outstanding. The monthly wine tasting dinners are superb value and turn into a great big party.
