@Austin360 @Odam: Vino Vino is “everything you want in a wine bar”

Here’s what Austin American Statesman restaurant critic Matthew Odam had to say about Vino Vino, one of the restaurants included in his “critic’s picks” for the paper:

Great small plates like lamb meatballs with mint and yogurt, happy hour specials, a handsome bar, hushed lighting, a broad wine list with friendly and knowledgeable staff … this Hyde Park haunt delivers everything you want in a wine bar and then expands on it, with homemade tagliatelle pasta with fennel sausage and pan-roasted chicken on a creamy, sweet and tart bed of white grits and pickled peaches.
