Cin-Cin [chin-chin] is an Italian toast meaning "to your health." Cin-Cin Wine Bar resulted from a friendship of a successful Bay Area local restaurateur and a former Google marketing professional-turned-sommelier. Don Durante and Lisa Rhorer developed the concept of Cin-Cin based on their passion for food, wine and the environment. Cin-Cin is a neighborhood wine bar for friends and family to enjoy food and wine produced by sustainable, organic and biodynamic methods. Cin-Cin is a place where you can nourish your palate with pure, sophisticated and intense flavors.

I don't know what happened to their staff last night, I hope this wasn't their regular staff. We went for Valentine's Day dinner. The menu was prix fixe, so it's not like they had to juggle a lot of choices. While the food was mostly...More

Such an interesting menu, thankfully lots of helpful advice from our waiter. The service was good and attentive. Prices are reasonable, but the portions may reflect the price, as I thought the $36.00 for my 4 scallops was high even though the meal was tasty....More

It’s been many years since our last visit to Cin Cin. I’m going to assume that the menu has changed during the time we’ve been away, and they have created a delectable array of tapas. We had the creamiest of polentas, rib eye steak, and...More

After reading the positive reviews I was disappointed.. Service was slow, The ambience was lacking, my daughter could not get her favourite pancakes and overall the food was ordinary.. I would like to go again without family to see if I get a better impression..

CinCin is one of our several-to places in Los Gatos. The food is reliably good and the prices are reasonable. It's rather loud in the restaurant at happy hour time, but still a pleasant dining experience.

I can't remember trying something that was outstanding. Everything you eat here is very regular. Older crowd, not alternative. I do not recommend this place, and I wouldn't go back. Very boring.

The food here is mixed - some of it is amazing - wild mushroom empanadas, soba noodles, and smoked cauliflower. Some is pedestrian. The wines are fabulous. It is by far the best at happy hour. It’s a nice convivial spot, the prices are very...More
