Vinum is the result of the love for Italian food and wine! Executive Chef and restaurateur Massimo Felici’s passion for food started as a young boy growing up in New York. Now he proudly introduces Vinum; the concept offer's a fun menu with small dishes, appetizers and an extensive wine list by the glass program.

Felici felt Staten Island was missing a place where guests could share small dishes and appetizers as their whole meal. He's confident that Vinum will satisfy this need.

Food and service was excellent!!! Nice atmosphere with candle lit tables and old rustic appearance. Speakers were playing oldies hits at nice level that helped to minimize being able to hear the conversations of others seated close by. This is the place to be adventurous with your taste buds and sample stuff you wouldn't cook at home...Yum Yum!

Granted it was Mother's Day the last time we went (it was our third time there in the last 6 weeks), but we sat down at 4 pm and didn't get appetizers until almost 5. Once the appetizers came out, the rest of the meal was fairly prompt. Entrees ranged from very good (short ribs) to just ok (cod and baby clams). We had a vegetarian with us and there was no vegetarian option but they made him a nice vegetarian pasta. It still cost us $65 per person (beverages were extra) so we ended up dropping $650 for an underwhelming meal/dining experience. The people working the front of the house were not terribly welcoming.

Excellent food and service. The veal chop was worth the price! For appetizers, main course, drinks and dessert, it will run about $100 a person. I loved it, I will be going back for dinner soon.

First time here and definitely NOT last! My friend and I went out for dinner and decided to do the prefixe menu for $85 for 2 people. It was very much well worth it! From beginning to end, our meal was delicious with the right amount of food to have and share! We will definitely be going back to try new dishes!

Went here for a Thursday evening date night with my wife and had a great time. We sat in the bar area up front, which was eclectic and had a great vibe. They had a large wine and drink selection, and the appetisers and meals were amazing. The octopus and mussels we ordered for appetizers were cooked to perfection, and honestly large enough to be a meal. The focaccia bread was delicious and great for soaking up all the flavors in the mussels. The meal was brought leisurely, allowing us to enjoy our evening. Overall we had a great time.

We had a wonderful Valentine's Day experience at Vinum and will certainly be back to visit again soon. The service was great. The waiter apologized that there was a little bit of a delay with our first course but honestly, after not eating out for months due to Covid we were grateful for the wait and to be able to spend more time drinking and talking. The Italian Margaritas were refreshing and delicious. There were amazing choices on the Valentine's Day Prix Fixe menu and I enjoyed every single one (1st Baked Oysters, 2nd The Truffle Pasta 3rd Short Rib, 4th Chocolate Ganache). We ate in the tent outside it was romantic and decorated with pretty balloons and they were playing good music. There was a guitar player that did a couple of live acoustic songs which was really nice. I was slightly disappointed we didn't get to sit in the front room inside but knowing how restrictive the indoor guidelines are I completely understood, obviously. Also a little side note, there was a couple next to us watching videos with the volume up on their phones. Not even together, they were both watching different videos at the same time on their own phones. Fellow diners, please don't do this. Even our 14 year-old knows how rude that is. Luckily, they left before we even got our apps. Overall, a great experience at Vinum. Thank you for hosting us on Vday!

Menu was misleading. It was a Valentine’s Day Menu. The menu stated you could order al la carte or pro fixe. That was not true, al la carte was not allowed. Were not informed we would be eating outside in a heated tent. Not worth the money we paid.
