Dino Café and Wine Bar is situated on the edge of Nottingham’s historic Lace Market. In close proximity to the hub of Nottingham’s night life as well as the Capital FM Arena and Broadmarsh shopping centre it is one of the city’s most popular wine bars that prides itself on serving honest Italian cuisine.
Tucked away on Warser Gate, Dino’s is a haven for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city centre. It is a small venue that packs a lot into the space it has. As you enter the restaurant, a comfortable lounge area beckons guests to take a seat in one of the comfy chairs and relax. A long bar runs along one wall where you can order everything from top class champagne to perfectly mixed cocktails, ciders, lagers and fine Italian coffee. A piano sits in one corner and a step down leads you into the main dining area. With rustic wooden tables including long benches that are perfect for large group bookings, the atmosphere when dining at Dino’s is relaxing and a welcome break from the million-mile an hour life many of us lead today.
The café restaurant offers cakes and Italian coffees from 11am alongside a light lunch menu that offers a good selection of freshly prepared dishes that will tempt you to take an extended lunch break and relax for an hour or two. The main menu offers a good selection of pastas, salads, steaks and other main dishes, all of which are freshly prepared to order. The 8oz sirloin steak, locally sourced from the Nottinghamshire area, come highly recommended for meat lovers whilst the mozzarella chicken served with dauphinoise potatoes, green beans and a tomato sauce will satisfy even the fussiest eaters. A few select vegetarian dishes are also available, but choices are limited.
Dino’s is an intimate venue that serves as the perfect base from which to explore the Nottingham night life. With gentle acoustic music playing in the background, you can’t fail at feeling instantly relaxed from the moment you step through the door. Whether you are looking for a lingering evening meal or cocktails before a night out, Dino’s is the place to be.
