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

If you are a foody or if you know any good Italian cooks, DO NOT waste your time and money here. The food was mostly just average and no place that has pastas with actual "frank's" hot sauce to make them spicy should dare call itself 'authentic'. My wife's lasagna was fairly bland - literally only sauce, cheese, and sausage... More

We were seated and after sitting there for 12 minutes we decided to leave after watching the waitress wait on another table that came after us.
