To celebrate Vinto Pizzeria’s summer menu we have a great giveaway for one lucky reader and a friend. If you read our recent story, you will know about some of the great summer updates at Vinto.

In addition to a seasonally updated menu that’s currently popping with color, freshness and vibrancy, Vinto is also inviting summer Twilight Concert goers to enjoy a sweet deal. Simply show a ticket stub at Vinto on Monday night (from the previous week’s concert) and receive a free Margherita Pizza with any entree purchase.

If you still aren’t aware of Vinto (and seriously, where have you been?) its one of SLC’s finest restaurants, with a raft of awards under its belt including:

* Best of State casual Italian dining and gelato 2011-2014
* 2012-2013 Best Pastry Chef, Salt Lake Magazine
* 2011-14 Best Gelato, Best of State
* 2014 People’s Choice Best Dessert, KUER Savory Salt Lake

The winner of our competition will receive a very special dinner for two–highlighting the summery menu update, including:

    Love Vinto! I’ve wowed a number of out-of-town guests by taking them there. The food is always wonderful.

  2. Joanne Miller says

    My favourite Summer treat is chilled French champagne, tempura oysters with wasabi aioli and crispy skinned salmon with a side of crisp green apple slaw.

  3. Vi says

    I love fresh heirloom tomatoes from my garden! I’ll admit to indulging in Vinto’s butterscotch budino and gelato too.

  4. Jaime Eggleston says

    All of that sounds delicious. My favorite summer treat would be a toss up between a caprese salad and a mojito.

  5. David Pace says

    Gourmet pizzas at Vintos are my favorite…but I’ll have to try the pasta after this delectable review!

  6. Megan says

    I love tomatoes fresh from the garden. Also, perfectly ripe peaches. Vinto is one of our family’s favorites.

  7. Derrick Blake says

    Fresh local produce for all the things: food and drink. Vinto is great! Be fun to come visit soon.

  8. Lisa Childs says

    My favorite summer treat is fresh peaches and produce from the garden… Summer is the best time of year for incredible food!!

  9. William says

    Viva Vinto! Vanilla bean ice cream with a splash of ice-cold Deschutes black butte porter over the top for a tasty beer float

  10. says

    I don’t know where I’ve been (probably cooking at home with my family!), but this looks so good! I NEED to try it… Hmmm my birthday is coming up!… :) Favorite summer dessert is all of the fresh fruit! Or any cobblers made with the fresh fruit with vanilla ice cream! Yum! @growingfourlife

  11. Donna Sparks Williams says

    Ya. Summer. Time for a Southern staple: fresh picked tomatoes on white bread with mayo, salt and pepper–no more, no less. Followed by a peach so juicy it has to be eaten over the sink.
