I went to 'ino for the first time with a friend...we got lucky there was no wait and we got seated immediately. its really warm and cozy..very intimate space. the truffled egg toast is really really good..and the paninis were excellent as well. we both ordered the half with soup or salad. the half panini with soup is much more filling because they give u a full-size bowl of their bean soup which is really good as well. the salad is limp and paltry in portion and uninspired. the food isnt too filling, but its good if you are looking for great quality food and a good atmosphere.

after having spent a year in Florence, and becoming a very picky Italian foodie, 'ino is truly a rare find. I actually forget I was in America and thought I was in Italy (excpet for the English) sure, it was loud and a little tight, but it was the real Italian feel. The paninis are a amazing..crunchy, fresh bread..and hot, fresh ingredients on the inside. Try the quattro panini..you get four mini-sized panini-it's great if you can't pick just one-which you will not be able to! the sandwiches might sound strange-but jsut ask the waiters and they know every ingredient-they're not strange-they're authentic! even in new york, of all the italian restaurants i've been to, this place is the real italiano deal. it's worth the wait (even outside in the cold!)-you just might not want to go with more than 2 people.

don't go with more than 2 ppl. it's a very very tight squeeze. the brushettas are great! i've tried almost all of them and they're all fantastic. waiters go out of their way to accomadate patrons. panini's are the best i've tasted for that price range. brunch is great. haven't tried the wine bar yet, but the italian panini sausage is amazing.

I have to echo the sentiments of earlier reviews here for 'ino. I work around the corner and I always recommend this place to people looking for a nice way to wind down (or get started ) an evening. It's a good date place.. It's small, so I wouldn't recommend it for larger groups. A party of four might have a fairly long wait on a busy night. Have to say that the wine is not overally expensive. I enjoyed a great bottle of shiraz here for $19 last week. That's ridiculously cheap---especially for the West Village.

Brunch at 'ino is one of the few things that gets me out of bed on a Saturday. The food is so so good and the staff is lovely. The bruchetta with ricotta may be the best thing I have ever tasted!

'Ino is actually much better than 'Inoteca, and less expensive! Don't be fooled by "paninis" - it is not like cafeteria food. There is a warm, italian wine bar feeling inside. The dishes are great for sharing. If anyone likes trying lots of little things like me, the quattro panini is perfect! Great place to go for a nice midweek meal where you don't feel like spending tons of money!
