Foodie Friday: Vinto

A customer of mine in San Diego actually recommended Vinto while I was traveling for the holidays and I am so glad I popped in while visiting Salt Lake.

The atmosphere and decor was fantastic, basically how I want to interior of my house to look. The prices were unbelievable for the quality of food and everything we got tasted amazing. The menu was well put together and everything sounded so enticing that we pondered over what to get for a while. Everything that the tables next to us had is what we wanted.



We opted for the grilled artichoke appetizer and they were cooked to perfection, with a yummy shallot vinaigrette over wild arugula.

I got the margherita pizza and my friend got the roasted tomato and sage pasta. Their wood fired pizzas look, smell and taste amazing.

For dessert, we tried two of their house made gelato's: salted caramel (absolutely the best gelato I've ever tasted) and peppermint swirl (delicious and fun for the holidays).

Basically I'm sad that I live in San Diego because I would probably eat Vinto everyday if I could.

  1. oh man! I live right next to Vinto! I'm sad I missed you! I've never been there, I wonder if they have anything Vegan there...

  2. Alex, I know that they do have some vegan options... but I'm not sure what (as I didn't look!), but you should go, it's a really great place!

  3. I love Vinto! Next time you make it back you have got to try their gelato with olive oil and sea salt - it sounds bizarre, but it is so very delicious.

    Isn't their decor the greatest? I'm hoping to do a wall of my bedroom in bold and wide black and white stripes like the back of their restaurant sometime soon.

  4. Such pretty decor. That salted caramel gelato sounds to die for!
