I like this place. It doesn't serve the most creative cuisine, nor the best Italian food, but it has charm and warmth and if you are craving carbs, you know you will be satisfied here. The atmosphere is great, multiple levels, little nooks that resemble wine cellars, red and white checkered table cloths, and great old photographs. If you have... More

We came to Vinny's again, this time for our 25th Anniversary. We had a very nice meal & delicious desert to go. Couldn't eat any more. Thank you for a memorable evening.

Had lovely lunch outside. Just right sized lunch portions, awesome bread, great pasta. The chicken picatto was delicious. The meal was so good we ordered two meals to-go.

We were lured into this joint because of the aromatic garlic that filled the air. My male friend and I took a day trip to explore the area. I had gone a few times before over the past 15 years. This was the first time to this eatery. The outside character is inviting. The inside feels warm and cozy. Not... More

This was a romantic and wonderful restaurant to dine at. We were not rushed and enjoyed a great dinning experience her. This is what great customer service and excellent food presentation look like.

My family and I had dinner here a couple of nights ago. We had heard that Vinny's was a terrific, authentic Italian restaurant. Unfortunately, in my opinion, it was not. First of all, our server was great and very attentive. He brought our food out in a timely manner and came and checked on us a couple of times throughout... More

The service is excellent and the atmosphere is fantastic. My wife had the tortalini carbonara and I had the ragu. Both were great, and after the included salad and garlic bread we had plenty left over to take home. Our waitress was Kayla (I think) and she was friendly and attentive even with being busy. If she's your waitress your... More
