If you like perfect paninis, like the scrumptious ricotta, pesto, and roasted vegetables, a relaxed and cozy atmosphere, efficient and friendly service, delicious wine, ‘Ino is the place for you; and then there is the truffle egg toast.
The tiny kitchen is very flexible when it comes to changes and requests off the menu. This makes it very attractive for people with a vegetarian diet. There is also have the option of half a Panini with soup/salad, or the quatro panini wich is each quarter with a different flavour. ‘Ino is one of the places where the quality of food and wine far outway the pricetag; for what you get it is surprisingly easy on the wallet.
I think the sum synergy of this lovely establishment can be summed up as follows: One day we were enjoying our Truffle Egg Toasts and wine at the end of the bar. The waiter came back to the bartender and mentioned that someone at a table had asked for a white wine recommendation. The two waiters and the bartender then proceeded to have an in-depth discussion (about 3-4 minutes) bout which wine was the best to pair with the particular panini ordered. At no point was price mentioned – it was all about the right flavors to achieve maximum enjoyment!
Other Items of note on the menu are Bruschettes, a favorite is the fennel and rucola salad with goat cheese, cheese plates, daily soup, good coffee and fresh orange juice. And then there’s the Truffle Egg Toast … Enjoy!!!
