After reading a 2014 review claiming that this restaurant has the best pasta in Halifax we anxiously went there. Service was great, everything quickly brought to the table and friendly staff. We tried the Caesar salad, fried cheese, garlic chicken pasta and the 4 cheese pizza - all very disappointing. Poor wine list too. Not the Italian restaurant to be... More

You would not think there was a tremendous meal behind the front door, but be amazed. Food was fresh and delicious. We were recommended to visit from a few locals and it was so good, we went back the next night for more!

While on a quick overnighter in Halifax, my brother offered to take our family out for some Italian food. We were expecting some of the standard fare that most cities have, but Vinnie's went way beyond our expectations. The restaurant itself is small and extremely unassuming - it looks like it's been there for a very long time, with little... More

I find the best thing about the place isn't just the food. The staff there are wonderful. Customer service is top notch. The staff are friendly, and really enjoy what they do. The food is delicious, regardless of the plate you order. The meal is filling and usually I take the rest of mine home due to the portion size.... More

This place is crazy good!! Just a hole in the wall but the service and food is fabulous!! I don't know of a pasta place in Halifax that gives you an option of soup or salad with your pasta dish!! Apps of shrimp in a creamy garlic sauce was great! Cesear salad was unique and really good. Lots of garlic.... More

My partner and I wanted to try Vinnie's after it was recommended to me by someone who said it was their favorite restaurant in Halifax. Based on the recommendation and the reviews we read, we knew not to expect anything fancy which allowed us to dress in jeans and comfortable shoes and park far away to allow for a long... More

This restuarant was recommended by my cousin who lives in Halifax. I wanted a casual Italian restaurant, that was open on a Sunday night. The service was quick - we were in and out in less than an hour, including bread and starter salads before our entree. I ordered the Southwestern Fettucini and it was incredible. Portions are perfectly sized... More

Chef Gary continues takes his 'Vines' history to an even Higher Plane. My honey and I each ordered the Seafood Linguini. I usually order this plate as I cannot perfect it in my own kitchen.....Chef Gary Jackson prepares it with just the right amount of pasta with several shrimp, a few scallops and a half dozen mussels all in just...

Could also have titled this, Don't judge a book by its cover. Doesn't look great from the outside but what is in store for you inside is a rather nice dining experience. We used a Groupon for our night out. Calamari for an appetizer that had a really interesting kick to it. I had a Red Curry chicken and while... More

Ordered carry out pizza there last night and was not impressed. For the price paid I expected much more then what seemed to be tough dough with cheese thrown on top. But that was not the worst part! That was the only thing I ate for dinner and a few hours later into the night I started feeling extremely ill... More
