A friend and I visited Vinny Vanucchi's last month. The food was excellent. Be sure to try the Pasta Siciliano if you are a fan of white sauce and vegetables.

The food was excellent, plentiful, and for a fair price. The decor is charming, I loved all the exposed brick. Will be back for sure.

The sausage raggau is killer, and so was the salad and bread! Engaging staff, great atmosphere, check it out if you can.

This restaurant serves delicious food and offers a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. However, the service can be slow even when the place isn't crowded. Delicious food, and lots of it, make it easy to share a dish or take home leftovers. Great downtown location near hotels and shopping.

Wonderful Italian food. Garlic bread is delicious. Only downfall the night we went was they were having problems with their heat.

We were there with a large group and they were unprepared and service suffered. So if going in a large group make sure to notify them well in advance.

the service is horrible. long wait for server to come to table and then to return. this was our second time here. the first time was better but not great for service. the food is good but the wait to get it is probably not worth it. but the salad dressing is wonderful and available for sale by the bottle....

We go here once or twice a year and every time is as good as the last. The wait staff is great and knowledgeable and the food is excellent. The portions are big which make the prices right.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I love the food. I love the music. I love the atmosphere. The prices are about what one would expect for good Italian food. The entrees come with a wonderful salad and garlic bread which is a real treat in itself. Excellent wines are also available if desired.
