Excellent Pizza, Extreme Fan Base

We arrived 20 minutes before the restaurant opened and were third "in line." We stood and waited in the heat, with a bunch of hungry, but happy and anxious fans, most of whom were locals. By the time the restaurant opened, the line extended to the sidewalk and a few minutes after we were seated... read more

Vin 909 is located in a charming cottage with a large, covered patio in the rear. No reservations accepted so be prepared to wait, particularly for dinner. Menu highlights include thin-crust pizza (classic margherita or more unusual toppings) and small plates. A nice selection of wines by the glass are very reasonably priced. Friendly, professional service. I dine here often... More

Although I am never fond of places that refuse to take reservations, the wait here is worth it. The food is excellent. The wine list is very good and quite reasonable. The menu is interesting and the dishes we had were outstanding. The side dish of sweet corn was superb. But then so were the other dishes we had. This... More

Great food but be prepared for the wait because they don't take reservations, fortunately the garden is very pretty. We ordered the clams, the Moroccan skirt steak and a pizza, it was all fabulous, I'll come back and try some other things!

Six of us went here for a casual dinner. The restaurant is in a quiet neighborhood just outside of Annapolis. The old house and the landscaping are very visually appealing. There are no reservations so we expected to wait. We ordered drinks from the bar and 45 minutes later we were seated. The beer and drink selections are outstanding and... More

It is truly worth the trip but you need to know why you are making it. So when you venture down to Annapolis make certain this is your destination because the wine is great, the restaurant location is pretty, the food is unique and it's just as good as it can be. Note to wait stay - never tell a... More

Very popular restaurant in Annapolis so it is always busy. Be prepared to wait for seating in the summer but have a drink in the garden or the porch to pass the time. The atmosphere is very festive and cheerful. Food is really delicious, lots of hmmm, hmm, hmmm coming from every member of our party of 6 as we... More

This is a local place but a find for tourists. Great for lunch as there is no line like there can be for dinner (sometimes 1-1/2 hours). Great food and great prices. Interesting wine selections and usually excellent wait staff. The pizza is gourmet-try the daily specials too. The main entrees can be small so we usually do a pizza... More

We had a long wait because it is a small restaurant and there was a big group eating. It was well worth the wait. We waited outside in the garden which had several benches and tables and chairs to sit on. The menu is very unique offering small plates and appetizer like choices. We like it and ordered several different... More

Great wine and awesome food! Be sure to come hungry! There is always a long wait because they don't take reservations or call ahead seating, but it's well worth it. It's a local favorite!
