Pasta Vino Ratings and Reviews
Pasta Vino has now moved and opened in the space formerly where the sister restaurant Chop had been located. They have barely missed a beat. The menu now is more clear and diner friendly. Our server was knowledgeable, upbeat, hard working and attentive without being over bothersome. We had an excellent meal...the whitefish piccata was done to perfection and the veal marsala was delightful.
Sister Bay and Door County are fortunate to have this along with Chop in their new building and Lure. Frankly, all the restaurants of Sister Bay such as The Bowl, The Waterfront, Al Johnson's and Wild Tomato are also worth supporting. This little down is becoming a food haven. We just hope the waits in line don't become too long as everyone 'discovers' Sister Bay again!
The food was good, the service very good, the value poor. I ordered off the Three Course meal, which you got an app, pasta, and dessert for $15.95. I ordered a Caesar Salad, Spaghetti and Meatballs, and Tiramisu. Sounded like a good deal. I got half a salad, half a bowl of pasta, and half a piece of Tiramisu. Pretty disappointed. My wife had the scallops which were good and twice the amount of pasta from what I had. Just beware, if you are hungry, don't order the early bird special.
Definitely glad we used Open Table to make a reservation, every table was full. The service was excellent, food was great, hardly any wait time, only one glass of wine consumed before the meal was served.
The only negative was the noise level made conversation difficult, the dining spaces are very cozy. Once outdoor seating is available, it will probably lessen, but it was much too cold to be outside this weekend.
Overall we really enjoyed Pasta Vino. Our server was very attentive and the food was fantastic. The restaurant is small but that's part of the charm. My one area of concern, and it's a big one, is the volume inside the tiny space. I could hardly hear my guest across the table from me as the noise from the three surrounding tables was so great. Basic conversation is not possible. One table of four near us was casually engaged in conversation and then another table was seated, also having casual conversation which increased the volume of the first table until the level of conversation in the small space was "party loud" as each tried to be heard over the other.
I will return to this restaurant as I have many times in the past but I will not plan to be here when I need to have a conversation with any depth to it.
Italian sausage and peppers were good, alot of peppers. The build your own shrimp,linguine and aeoli oeil sauce had LOTS of both roasted and also minced garlic...to the point of too much of both. The house salad had too much dressing, there was still 2 tablespoons left in the bottom of the bowl.
My wife and I have been going to Pasta Vino since we started vacationing in Door County in 2009. It has changed locations and owners, but the food is still great! We went Labor Day weekend and brought our two little kids. They were well behaved, which is good because it was more on the quiet side! Lots of couples. Currently they are on a golf course so we went outside for a bit after dinner. They also have a nice fire ring/pit with adirondack chairs which was cozy and inviting.
Pasta Vino is nothing to write home about. The service was above average but the food (veal scallopini and veal Marsala) was disappointing. The portions were generous but more of average still is average. We prefer the owners other restaurants: The Chop and Lure, both in Sister Bay.
