Locanda Vini & Olii
Italian cuisine in a converted pharmacy
Italian · Clinton Hill · $$$
The Zagat Review
The “former pharmacy” setting lends “old-fashioned but stylish appeal” to this “refreshingly distinctive” Clinton Hill Northern Italian, home to “expertly prepared” pastas and other “authentic” fare delivered by a “hands-on” staff; it’s a bona fide “hidden gem” where regulars “leave full and happy.”

I came here with a friend for dinner. This used to be an old apothecary and all the woodwork is the same, the small little drawers and the ladders. They also kept all the items they found during the renovations under the front counter as well as the old register. The food is northern Italian and I had the gnocchi with mussels, my friend had the duck. I would recommend both, I think I liked the duck more, but it really just depends on the mood you are in. They make good recommendations for the wine as well. The service was really good, they were not constantly hovering but made sure wine and water glasses were filled. The manager Rocco came over and spoke to us as well, friendly person, and very involved in the restaurant activities. It's good for a date night but make reservations. Also the sign on the top is the old drug store sign so don't get thrown by that.

The location is really unique, in an old pharmacy that hasn't been stripped from it's original interior. Yet, I have been coming here for years, and it's still the same menu of unfortunately pretty basic "Italian style" food. Most of the dishes are very heavy and not presented in the most creative way. Especially for the money. Wine list is really good though and the service very friendly.

Great ambience, well-devised and prepared food, interesting wine, informed service. The drugstore look is fun.
