THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED 'ino Restaurant Review

: Owned by a young couple who were inspired by a sandwich shop in Italy where they once passed six hours during a storm, ’ino is a cozy place with a half-dozen tables, exposed-brick walls, warm lighting and simpatico music. The panini overflow with such fillings as soppressata, mozzarella, portobello mushrooms and Asiago with featured elements like truffle oil and sun-dried tomato pesto. Have a glass of wine---there's a good selection of Italian bottles, most served by the glass---and share a selection of sandwiches, bruschetta or simple salads with a group of friends until the wee hours. When solo, the bar is a good spot for grabbing a bite.
