The food is some of the best Italian food I have ever had. Having said that, I order here only in the fall or the off season. If I get home from work and feel like Italian while in season, this is not the place unless I am prepared for an hour and a half to two hour wait. The... More

We stopped by Vinny and Cheryl's first to pick up a menu and before entering thought that the venue was a sit down restaurant. There are tables outside with umbrellas but there is no inside seating. It is more of an Italian deli/pizza shop inside but my, my- yummy food. We ordered a whole Italian specialty sub which was huge... More

We ordered from them twice, and understood it was take out and that we needed to call several hours ahead. Some of our favorites were the rigatoni bolognese, eggplant rollatini, cheese ravioli, and chicken Parmesan. We tried the pizza on our second and about 1/2 the family really likes it and 1/2 didn't care for it. They also have traditional... More

Loved the food, but you need to order in due time - as it can take a couple of hours. We orders the meat lasagne for a family visit, got it on agreed time too. Plenty of food, tasting well!

We just returned from vacation on AMI and had Vinny & Cheryl's for take-out one night. Yes, if you read the other reviews, this is a take-out only place, and yes, it is best to go by around lunch time and place your order for dinner the same night. We ordered in person around noon and asked to come back... More

Okay, so, our experience with this place was a bit odd. We originally thought it was a restaurant. It isn't. Its a place where you can take out or have them cater an event. There is no seating. Its dark inside, they keep odd hours and they don't always have everything on their menu. We ended up going there around... More

We hit this place last while on vacation in Anna Maria Island,FL. Should have gone there first. Priced appropriately for what you get. The there is no hint of fast food flavor, it's all hand made and each dish has its own unique flavor. We didn't realize it was pick up only until we got there and but the owner... More
