Terrific! Vinny's uses local ingredients, makes a great homemade dough, their own sauces. A good beer on tap & wine. While it looks like a standard pizzeria, it's anything but. Go for it!

I've ordered delivery from here a few times, they were very fast and accommodating, I love white pizza and this place does a good one, you can tell the dough is fresh and made in house unlike the chain places, and they offer more variety and exotic sauces and toppings than the chains, as well as an extensive menu of...

We picked up our pizza. Pizza was ok, but it wasn't worth waiting an hour for it when we were told that it would take 20 minutes. The owner/cook was quite rude to his staff in front of the customers giving it a very unpleasant atmosphere. Probably would have been just as impressed with Dominoe's or Pizza Hut....

This place doesn't look much from the outside, and the decor is a bit dark (I think it was mainly black) but the pizza and pasta, for the US, was excellent. No thick and tastelss pizza here, and the tomato sauce tasted like it had seen a real tomato. Friendly staff, and excellent value. Went there every night of our... More

I don't know if it's their pure water or if baking it at such a high altitude has something to do with it . . . or maybe it's just technique. But the crust on the pizza was . . . superior. We were lucky enough to be served by one of the owners on our first night there and... More

Small place across from Holiday Inn Express. Way above average thin crust pizza. Had the 14" three topping and it wonderful, crust, ingredients, et al. Great. Place only holds about 20 people but they deliver too. Beer and wine available.

Was very satisfied with all of the food except the dinner salads. If a little more love and attention could be paid to those it would have been a 4 star review. More veggies and not kept with the hot food during travel, would help immensely. The dressing were delicious! We ordered dinner delivered right to our hotel room at... More

It cost 46 dollars for two large pizzas. The white pizza is a cheese pizza with white sauce and its very bland and extremely garlicy. The spinach pizza was pretty good but again lacks in flavor..I have had better pizza at many other places in town. I could have bought 4 for that price and they would have tasted better... More
