Vino Locale in Palo Alto

I saw an advertisement in today's paper for Vino Locale, a wine bar in Palo Alto. Has anyone tried this place? Is it recommended?

  1. Yes, I've tried it several times. The people in charge know their local wines very well and I have never had a bad glass of wine there! The food is less clear in my mind, but the wine it top notch.

    1. Vino Locale is an adorable neighborhood wine shop across from Zibibbo. Their front and back gardens are very pretty and you can find very decently priced, good and local, wine. There's a very small staff and kitchen, so food is generally more of the charcuterie, sandwich and salad variety. Decent quality food, but it certainly plays second fiddle to the wines. Vino Locale is not open for dinner, but offers seemingly popular wine education courses in the evening. Also has local artist displays.
