Vinto Restaurant Review: Vinto’s modern décor, with wood-and-steel tables, oversize semi-circular booths and an open kitchen, shouts "chic." Settle in with a glass of wine (nearly everything is $1 an ounce) and then order the tender meatball appetizer with tomato sauce, Parmigiano-Reggiano and grilled toast. For non-meat eaters, there's a sun-dried tomato and goat cheese flatbread or grilled artichoke hearts with wild arugula in a shallot vinaigrette. Entrées might seem limited at first glance, with just three pasta dishes and three "piadine" (Italian flatbread sandwiches), but the kitchen is happy to whip up whatever combination of ingredients you request. Make sure to get at least one thin-crust, wood-fired pizza for the table, such as the Tuttabella with its house-made sausage, fresh tomato, caramelized onion, garlic, roasted peppers and mozzarella. Desserts such as the martini glass of tiramisu or the delicate, crispy apple crostata tart echo the artful blending of flavors. Waitstaff is attentive. Bonus: A kid's meal is less expensive than most side dishes.
