I loved the food - classic italian food, great salad bowl and love, love, love, the bread. I had the stuffed shells in alfredo - delicious. I didn't like the massive amount of garlic in the alfredo sause so I picked a lot of it out, I didn't like the gazillion stairs - next time I will park on the... More

Food is always excellent. Bread and salad family style with every order. Matt waited on us and he was great. We have lunch at Vinny's whenever we are in town.

We've eaten here several times, and the food is always good, and the staff always friendly. I particularly like their salads and garlic toast. The atmosphere is nice too - cool old building with Frank Sinatra era music.

I don't know what happened to this place, but it is awful. The food is awful and the prices are outrageous. You would be better off going to Olive Garden and that is not saying much. Won't return.

The food is just average along with the service. The taste is only mediocre when it comes to Italian Food.

This restaurant was amazing. The atmosphere was great with all of the decorations and music and candles. The lasagna was very good and my boyfriend's Fettuccini Chicken Alfredo was really good too. Our waiter was always checking on us and did a great job. We were too full to have any dessert but they looked awesome! I would strongly recommend... More

This is a fantastic restaurant. The historic building was an enchanting venue, or waitress Katherine was an absolute delight, and the food was beyond amazing. I cannot recommend this restaurant more highly...we will be going back for sure!
