Vino Volo - Restaurant Review

What to do when you're at the airport 90 minutes early because the security lines weren't nearly as long or challenging as you expected? Stop in at Vino Volo for a relaxing glass of wine before boarding!

The service was friendly and attentive. The small venue at ABIA was completely full, but a friendly waiter pointed out a woman who was about to leave and then cleared the table for us and got us seated within a few minutes.

I started with a glass of fabulous rosé from Provence - Domaine Turenne Cuvée Camille Rosé 2015, Côtes de Provence, France. It was fresh, light, and easy-drinking. It's a blend of Cinsault, Grenache, and Syrah, and is listed at $31 per bottle at VV.

Hubby had a glass of the Duchman Family Winery Montepulciano 2012, Driftwood, Texas, which is listed at $39 per bottle here. It was full-bodied and rich, and he really enjoyed it.

The Grilled Chicken Salad (around $15) was small but satisfying - better than most airport food. It contained only around a half a chicken breast (previously cooked and probably reheated in a microwave), spring mix, feta cheese, dried cranberries, and pine nuts.

The bill for 2 glasses of wine and a salad came out to about $50 before tip. Pricey, but worth it to avoid standard airport fare!
