The very best chicken parm ever, and the special spicy sauce on our side pasta was second to none. Nice wine list too!

I have dined at Vinny's on several occasions for lunch and dinner. I have always had excellent service. The decor and music really give it an authentic flair. Wether we eat indoors or outdoors on the patio we have been extremely pleased with the quality of food and the price. The bread that comes to the table is absolutely the... More

Went there for lunch and had the Chicken Masala. It was probably one o f the best Masalas I have had in a long time. The sauce was very favorable and the chicken was done to perfection. Our waitress Karina was very polite and very professional making the experience very enjoyable.

The dinner we had while visiting Galena was seriously some of the best Italian I've every eaten. I had the Alfredo and my honey enjoyed traditional spaghetti and meatballs (his standard for judging all Italian restaurants). Both meals were wonderful and accompanied by great salad and the most delicious garlic bread I've every eaten. It's worth it to climb all... More

We have eaten here before and have always been pleased. You won't go hungry here; portions are big! Would be nice if they would offer half-portions for smaller appetites, especially when eating late at night.

12 of us went here for dinner for a birthday party. They took our drink orders quickly and brought us a big bowl of salad (which is always good) and a basket of warm bread sticks. It took a while to get our entree. I ordered the fettuccine primavera with chicken. The menu says its cream sauce so I figured... More

After reading reviews I thought we picked a decent place to eat. The red sauce seemed to be watered down and the meatballs were awful. had pasta sauce from a jar that was better than the sauce they served. We are not picky eaters and never complain. There are many other places to eat on mainstreet go somewhere else.
