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.

I was excited to try this place . Made a reservation when I got there they sat us right away , the menu was extremely different then any other place on si
They serve duck , lamb rabbit ?? Just to much . There was no appetizers that sounded good , we tried the shrimp and beans ? And the cauliflower?? Both were alright very heavy . The salmon was delicious and the truffle pasta was amazing. So expensive. 2 people bill was $200.00 with tip ! Glad I tried it definitely not running back there

Love this place. Always amazing food, and good vibe.

FYI - when I tried to make a reservation on the website, I was told that there was nothing available from 4:30 to 8:00. Went on Open Table and got a reservation at 6:00. Love the bar level, second level decor needs some work, it is quieter. Should be a way to request the bar level, or outside in the summer when the reservation is made.

My only complaint is that they need candles on the tables in the garden and heat lamps. It was dark and cold. Lol. Otherwise... food was outstanding. Their wild game meat boards and cheese selection was off the hook good. Best mussel broth I’ve had in a long time. Desert... needs work, nothing special. Service was excellent. Everyone who works there was really friendly. Looking forward to going back again for their wine tasting, 5 course meal!!

This was the first meal that my girlfriend and I have enjoyed from start to finish in a long time. The wild boar sausage over broccoli rabe is a must, the Portuguese octopus is tender and delicious, the lamb special was the best lamb I've ever had, and the nutella dessert thats not on the menu is out of this world. We'll be back for sure

The food was excellent - We started with the Cheese Monger Platter- a simple, yet beautiful cheese plate with a nice selection from hard to soft cheeses and poached pears! For entrees, we had the “old school linguine with clams” - probably the best I’ve ever tasted, and “The Boar” which was also really good. Desserts were good but I’d rather eat more pasta!
The service was also wonderful. I will definitely be back.

I went here with my girlfriends to celebrate my birthday. We had a delicious cheeses, cauliflower gratin, and shared a shrimp fettuccine alfredo and braised beef short rib lasagna. Everything was delicious, including the 3 desserts we shared (tiramisu, a hazlenut ice cream concoction that tasted like a ferrero rocher, and chocolate cake)! Would love to go back and try the things I missed! Would definitely recommend.

Our first time there, was very good. Food and service excellent. The place is very pretty, reminds us of the village. Waitstaff highly attentive, the food was very good. I would go back.
It is a bit small, but has a nice outdoor area away from the front.

We had an excellent meal with wonderful service -- we sat outside so the noise level might not apply inside.

Amazing service. Small restaurant with a lot of personalized attention and suggestions from the waiter. I actually loved how there wasn't a set dessert menu. We were just asked about allergies and brought out a bunch of different small desserts to share so we could try everything, "on the house." Went for Father's Day!

Vinum is the place we go to for special occasions. The food is excellent, the front room is intimate and the servers are attentive but not overly. We have been there at least 5 different occasions and have never been disappointed.
