IL VIOLINO staff disaster relief fund

IL VIOLINO  has been an upper west side neighborhood  restaurant  for the past 25 years. We've been extremely lucky to have had the support from the neighborhood and beyond. 

Closing our doors was the most difficult decisions we've had to make during this COVID-19 crisis. Laying off 25+ employees was absolutely heartbreaking.

Our IL VIOLINO family is left without any income and the uncertainty of when they will be employed again. Unemployment benefits are very minimal. 

Please help us support them with disaster relief while we are closed. 

100% of donations will be going to the entire hard working staff;  servers, dishwashers, cooks, bartenders, the whole crew.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We can't wait to see you again at IL VIOLINO

Be safe and take care of each other!
