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.

First and foremost as I am a believer in service weighting as much as the food and ambiance, no question here service sets the bar at Vinum. Tried one of their new cocktails with blueberry and it was awesome. Food and presentation was on point really flavorful and satisfying. A must recommendation is the Portuguese Baby Octopus very tender. Meatballs were excellent what a rich and flavorful experience. I can’t wait to go back !!

A major find in a little known area, Vinum brings Manhattan quality to Staten Island. All of the dishes are first rate, with the menu reflecting a wide variety of the Italian cuisine

Food was great, but we were 3 people seated at a table for 2 in a very cold rear tented area. Took a while to have someone take our drink order.

However the food was really amazing - good enough that I would go back.

Food was amazing. Service was stellar. We had a 5pm (party of 4) reservation and while there were open tables in the front room, we were seated in the back. Mind you, the back is an outdoor area that was seasonally converted to be used in the winter. The temperature was a challenge. Cold next to the fabric walls and hot with the heater blowing on you. We asked about a table in the front room when they first took us to the back, and they said the tables up front were reserved. Then our waiter told us you really can’t reserve a specific table. So what’s the truth here? We were the only party relegated to the back. So for that reason I can’t give it 5 stars.

After reading the excellent reviews, we knew we had to try this place— and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is small, but very cozy and inviting. We made a reservation a week in advance for a Saturday evening and we were seated right away. We had the veal truffle meatballs, grilled octopus, burrata, and mussels for our appetizers and each one was delicious and cooked perfectly. The wild boar with homemade pappardelle was outstanding! If you’ve never tried it, you should. The veal chop with parma and fontina was also delicious. The menu is so different—in a good way. It will take four or five visits to get to everything we wanted to order. Great wine list, but the mixed drinks were very good as well. Great desserts too. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely one of the best restaurants on the Island.

From being greeted immediately as we walked in with a smile to the outstanding food service we received, this place is just awesome! The food and wine were out of this world. We had the Italiano meatballs, eggplant parm, and the truffle pasta. We paired all of that with several glasses of Pinot noir. I can’t recommend this place enough! A must go!

This was my second time at Vinum. Everything was great. The wait staff was very knowledgeable with regard to the wine list. What's great is they have well over 20 wines by the glass and an extensive wine list. Our food cam out perfect. Great spot! We would go more often however last minute reservations are a challenge for good reason!

Wish we tried this place sooner. We went to celebrate our anniversary. It’s a small place but it’s cozy. The staff was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The menu could be a little overwhelming - there are so many options the Specials, small plates, wild meat options, cheese and meats and seafood. It covers it all. The veal meatballs were amazing. I really enjoyed the tomatoe flan in warm bread. Looking forward to going back.

It's a very cute place, very comfortable. We really enjoyed the small plates (especially the porchetta, burrata, and cauliflower flan) and the wines were excellent. Of the entrees that the 4 of us ordered two were excellent: the special rabbit entree and the fresh pasta purses with cheese and mushrooms. The short rib with pappardelle was watery. Everyone liked their desserts too except for the vanilla gelato which tasted like the freezer.
