Best hidden Italian food

Awesome sauce! Sweet and thick, couldn't do better myself! Large portions! Hidden across the street from In & Out Burger. Atmosphere is nothing special, but food makes up for it.

Ok, by saying it's better than the Italian chain restaurants I know it's only faint praise. You'll need a navigator to find this place if it's your first time. Look for the statue of a fat chef on the street side. Once inside, there is large space with old family photos gracing the walls. There are booths along both sides... More

My son turned me on to this hole in the wall restaurant. I took a good friend for lunch and we split a pizza. The pizza was outstanding! In my opinion two things make the pizza... sauce and crust. The sauce was very good but it was the crust that we both thought was lighter than other places. There's nothing... More

I have to say that my first visit to Vinny's really impressed me. The chicken parm sandwich was most excellent as was the antipasto. It always impresses me when the owner/chef comes out personally to mingle with the patrons and ask questions and that's the kinda place Vinny's is. My first visit and Vinny was making me feel like family.... More

The food here is authentic and mouth-watering. I've eaten at some of the finest Italian restaurants and honestly, this is the best. The service is friendly, the wait staff is well-trained and you'll enjoy a homey atmosphere. Bring your family and friends and eat in Vinny's kitchen. They make you feel like family. You really feel like you're at home... More

Vinny's has opened in its new location on Lambert Thursday May 31st. What a difference. From a very small hole in the wall strip mall to a full service resaturant. Some things have changed, beer & wine are now available, only one size of pasta is on the menu among a few. The food is as great as ever; big... More

Vinny's opened three years ago in a small strip mall on Whittier Blvd in La Habra, Ca. We first visited because we had a coupon from the Entertainment Book and we have been going back ever since. Vinny's is nothing fancy, just seven or eight very simple tables. Its the food that brings you here. Portions are huge, a large... More

This was without a doubt the worst pizza we have ever had. We ordered sausage, mushroom, and green pepper. What we got was about 3 lbs of sausage, 3 lbs of mushrooms, and about a lb of black olives. We have never seen a pizza so loaded with toppings. It was pretty bad. The sub sandwiches are OK.
