We were visiting from out of town with our granddaughter who has celiac disease, so finding a GF restaurant is imperative. I shared her dish, baked rigatoni, which was properly cooked and very tasty, and she was also able to have GF cheese cake, which was also very good. Our waitress, Nellie, could not have been more helpful. She made... More

I was back home visiting family, wanting a place to have a great family me to catch up. I read the prior reviews and it seemed good, but not to be. The resturant was located on Main Street in Dubuque, however parking was extremely hard to find. Once seated the decor was inviting and spoke of an authentic cuisine. Our... More

The food is wonderful! Service is prompt. And, if anything should happen to "go array"...what ever "it" is, is promptly and courteously rectified!

Service can be spotty here, but the garlic bread and salad with homemade dressing are worth it. Skip the heavy pastas and order the soup, salad, and bread as your meal and I think you will agree that you will imagine you are eating the nectar of the gods. The pizza here is excellent, too. As I hinted at earlier,... More

Had a lovely dinner with my children at Vinnys after seeing Guardians of the Galaxy (best movie ever!) at Mindframe. Our server Dallas was fantastic and accommodating and the food as always was delicious. The pollo compomare is always amazing, the alfredo is subtle and velvety and the salad and garlic bread are perfect!

Downtown Dubuque has more great restaurants than most cities of its size and population. With quality chef's and food availability, that puts the competition high to bring in regulars and the movers - shakers in the region. Thus, having the right table and view become critical when you eat out, so you see who comes and goes, plus subtly being... More

It's a poor replica of Galena's Vinny Vanucchi's restaurant. While the Italian décor is similar, the service and quality of food is not. When we first arrived, the host looked inconvenienced by our presence. He quickly seated us to a terrible location within the restaurant, despite the restaurant not being busy and our request. Our server appeared very lazy and... More
