Il Vinaio

il Vinaio is an American Wine Bistro with Mediterranean influences serving traditional American home-style Breakfasts and Lunches featuring local, freshly baked Artisan Breads, homemade soups, and locally grown organic produce. Our linens come out in the evening for an elegant yet casual dining experience featuring dinners specifically created by our Executive Chef to pair exceptionally well with our boutique wines and craft beers. Everyone can find what they are looking for from sampler platters and vegetarian dishes, to steaks, chops, pastas, and seafood. Every night is different with daily specials and a variety of indulgent desserts.

This 5000 square foot restaurant, a Historic Downtown Mesa Landmark for almost 40 years, has recently been remodeled in an old world Tuscan decor to compliment the Downtown Arts focus. We've exposed our cathedral ceiling and 70 stained glass windows, and accented the softly backlit soffit with 11 hand painted wine parables. Original art from local artists and photos of our regular customers adorn the walls as il Vinaio still features the same popular casual & comfortable atmosphere Downtown regulars have been raving about! We are passionate about our friendly, family atmosphere, fresh home-style food, and exceptional service.
