Had the special that night. Hostess described as a Meatball the size of a Bocce ball on pasta. It was and it was seasoned well and cooked thru perfectly. Staff gave good advice on wine pairings. Would go back any time I could.

I like the VIne. I have eaten there a number of times and never been disappointed. The food is very good and the wine list is excellent. It is a step above most San Clemente restaurants. Exceptional service and food to match. Their zinfandel braised Lamb shank is beyond good. Enjoy.

Cozy, local, wonderful. Great little courtyard eating area with well put together bar inside. Eager staff jumping to get you taken care of. I'm in a wheelchair and they move heaven and earth to get me seated well. Hearty, well spiced food. A San Clemente Must

The wine list is wonderful and the wait staff is very knowledgeable. Parking is a little difficult, but usually you can find a street spot or a place at the real-estate lot a couple doors down. We like the dining area instead of the bar. The charcuterie plate is awesome and the pumpkin ravioli is very yummy. There is a... More
