Went to Folino's Estate Vineyard & Winery. One of our favorites. Dined outside, social distanced and everything well handled and well organized by the staff. Plenty of space between tables, excellent food on their AlFresco Menu. This restaurant and winery Pre-COVID 19 and during, is a must visit. Continues to be one of the gems of the Berks & Lehigh County areas. If you haven't been here yet, stop in, call for a reservation or go online and reserve. This is a special place, and well staffed with caring individuals. Excellent food, variety in their menu, excellent ambiance and reasonably priced.
They did a fantastic job making adjustments with Covid. Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon
Even in a pandemic they continue to offer excellent food, service and atmosphere.
Seating outside was great. Social distancing was enforced. Felt safe and super clean. They followed all COVID policies. Food was great.
Doing a great job during this pandemic! Smaller menu but great choices!
Fabulous! Will definitely be returning!
Family friendly and SAFE! Excellent procedures in place for new world we're living in with covid19. Highly recommend for a relaxing and safe time out with family.
21st birthday celebration
Friendly, professional staff....grounds were immaculate and the food was delicious. We traveled 3 hours away to visit Folino Estate for a tasting and the experience was so nice, we went back for lunch and wine slushies the next day before heading home!
A little slice of Italy so very close to home.❤️
This is one of our favorite places to eat and relax. Food is great and of course the outside view and the wine selection. Too bad it’s 45 minutes away, but it is worth the trip!
It was a hot evening with direct sunlight. We were directed to a table with an umbrella that adjusted at angles. We couldn’t adjust the umbrella and neither could anyone who worked there.
We followed the seating person to a new table- there was a free table in the shade. We were told that she thought somebody was sitting there and that they got up to get their food so we couldn’t have it. (Was it? Not sure? )
We were shown a table next to a party of 15 people speaking loudly and there was a music speaker playing morose music (very sad music). It was depressing especially since one in our party is very hard of hearing.
We moved our table farther away from the big party ourselves. Finally I found an empty table and got a seating person to approve. Food portions on the Caesar salad was much smaller than last week when I visited. The music was exactly like a low budget wedding.
Our group had a great time. Service was excellent as was the food and wine. More than enough social distance from closest tables. Great value👍😀
The food was cold. Masks not enforced inside. Menu very limited.
I thought that there would be servers, so that was my main issue. There should be separate lines for wine slushies and food. More umbrellas would be nice. If you make a reservation you should get a table on the patio with an umbrella. An ice bucket should be given to anyone buying a bottle to enjoy in the hot sun. Food is good, but with the wind it makes dining a little difficult because everything is disposable.
Limited menu, understandable, but VERY good. I needed a table in full shade and the hostess made sure that happened. Anxious to go back!
Wonderful, as always! The crab cake sliders are a must. Thank you to your wonderful team.
Beautiful scenery for an outdoor venue. Excellent food and wine. The value was very good but a bit pricey for self service.
Folino is a beautiful property, and the wine was delicious too. We didn’t try their food this time, but we will absolutely be back!
I know we are still going through covid but the dining experience wasn’t anything like I remember. The prices seemed to sky rocket. I got a glass of wine for myself and for the boyfriend and came to $15.90. For two small glasses. Needless to say I only got one. We had an appetizer and it was dry and over cooked, it was very hard to eat. The crab cake sliders were pretty good. They aren’t letting anybody dine in yet, and the wind picked up and we lost all of our stuff because it’s all flimsy plastic and paper. I always loved this place before. I’m sure it’s worse right now because of covid. So I’ll be back.
Views are amazing and lunch was surprisingly very good. In these times of Covid I found tat the distance was kept and the outside was very well taken care of. I did see a person without a mask on and no one reminded to wear one. I mentioned it to the lady and she immediately responded by getting her mask as she had forgotten to put it on.
Cleanliness and mask wearing are very important in my decisions to visit places.
Tremendous view, outstanding atmosphere. Really interesting and great menu. Try the Aroncini, risotto balls, amazing. Paper plates take away a little bit due to the virus, but a really beautiful spot in and really goodfood.
Hi Mike, thanks for your kind review. We are so happy that you were able to join us at our table and enjoy some of our favorite Italian classics. We look forward to having you join us again soon!
We ate outside in a beautiful setting and had a good antipasto board.
Hi Ronald, So glad to hear that! Our Antipasto Board with a glass of wine is definitely the perfect combo. So happy you could join us, see you again soon!
They take you to an outside table ( we were at a picnic table) and give you a menu. Food options are limited. You go stand in line to order your food. You go stand in another line to get your wine. You wait to be called for your food order. ( we waited about 30 minutes for food order). You stand in a 3rd line to pick up your food. Seems like it could be more efficient.
Beautiful environment and set up. Friendly staff and very fast service. Pricy for the serving size. But would highly recommend and will be back.
Hi Mallory, thank you for your review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your time wine-ing and dining with us. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Lovely breezes... pleasant environment... good food & drinks...accommodating staff... great experience given the times we are in... it was wonderful to be out & “free”.
Hi Robert, thank you for your kind review! We couldn't agree more, being able to enjoy food & wine Al Fresco has made a world of difference after being locked away for months. It was so nice to have you join us at our table, and we are so happy to hear that you enjoyed yourself. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Beautiful weather, great food and always great drinks!
Thank you for your review! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us... we look forward to seeing you back at our table again soon!
I understand we are in a pandemic but all they offer is ambiance. It is cafeteria style dining with a menu that is mainly apps and salads. 2 chicken dishes and 2 pasta. For Father’s Day we were expecting some type of service not to go style eating
We went to Folino after hiking a part of the AT. It’s a beautiful setting, great food, great service, and great wine! They did a really good job making it a pleasurable experience while following COVID-19 guidelines!
Hello, thank you so much for joining us. We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us and that you felt safe & comfortable while dining with us. We look forward to having you back at our table again soon!
Folinos, my favorite place in L.V. everything very good and the food very good as always.
Hello Eduardo, such a kind compliment, thank you! Glad to hear that you enjoyed your time with us... we look forward to seeing you again soon!
A bit disappoint on the food end, regardless of this COV19, your calamari was very under portion not to mention that there was more pepperoncini in there than calamari's!
The atmosphere it was beautiful however it’s not the greatest place to dine during shut down it was extremely hot outside replaced in the middle of the field with no one Bralla we have no service we had to stand in a long line in the scorching sun to order food then we had to wait to receive a phone call to then go back and stand in another line to pick up our food and then everything was served in a go bag There were six of us seated at a small picnic table and we had no elbow room
They should have made it clear they were not offering waiter/waitress service (especially on Father's Day). Any other place we've visited during the yellow phase has offered full service.
I love folino and
House salad was excellent. So was the calamari. Chicken panini was also very good. Wine was excellent.
Hello, thank you for your kind review! So happy to hear you enjoyed some of our favorite Italian classics... we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Great!! Had the grilled cheese with wine drizzle reduction was good!!
Mm, one of our FAVS! So happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us... we look forward to seeing you again soon!
The wait to be seated was quite long despite everyone having a reservation. My husband was served a pre-made “red sangria” which looked like pink lemonade and tasted like it was old and once had ice that was melted and it was flat. Despite us asking to return it, they made my husband buy a new drink. A gust of wind came and it became quite clear that the umbrellas were not properly secured because one got loose and blew pipe end straight into my husband’s back. Thank God it hit him and not our 2 year old who was sitting directly in front of him. Had he not been sitting there it would have hit her directly in the face. The umbrella continued on and almost hit a baby. The manager came over and despite all of this offered only to call 911 and to give us a bottle of wine to take home (which we declined). My husband spent the whole Fathers Day in pain and wearing a ripped shirt while our toddler cried in fear from seeing Daddy get hurt. Totally ruined Father’s Day. Will not be going back.
We had a truly wonderful experience dining Al Fresco @ Folino on Fathers Day, celebrating the 2nd Anniversary of my daughters Folino Wedding in addition to Fathers Day. Food was wonderful as always and their outdoor dining procedure worked great for us.
Hi Linda, Welcome back and thank you so much for joining us.. we are so happy you enjoyed your time celebrating at our table! Happy Anniversary to your daughter and Happy Father's Day... we look forward to seeing you all again for more special occasions!
Food was excellent and compliance to social distancing/use of facial masks was outstanding. Felt safe and enjoyed our meal in a very comfortable and lovely environment.
Hello Gloria, thank you so much for your kind words.

We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us, and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Beautiful property, the food was delicious. We will be returning again when things are more back to normal. I'm looking forward to doing a wine tasting.
Hi Marilyn, thank you for your review and for joining us! We are so glad you enjoyed your Al Fresco dining experience. We look forward to having you back when things are more "normal"... hopefully sooner than you think!
