mid afternoon late lunch

It was our first visit. I had shrimp & broccoli in tomato basil sauce & my husband had chicken alfredo. Both were excellent and the garlic bread was super good. We brought enough home for another meal. We will definitely go again!!

Dubuque Vinny's has had a menu uplift, just in time for some new hosts and servers as several have returned to college. The menu adds some new items -tonight I had the Pasta Ala Vinny with seafood and some spices that really offered a nice twist to my palate, and keeps most of the older menu items - my wife... More

Nice decor and ambience. Delicious garlic bread. Chicken parmigiana was average (and I have eaten more of these in my lifetime than most). Since there are few appetizers, it would have been nice if pastas were offered as apps as half sizes.

Love the atmosphere here and Vinny Vannuchi's... The food was quick and very good... If I had one complaint it would be lack of parking... Other than that I was very happy here...

Our families love this ilatian restaurant. It's charming warehouse ambience, with cheery plaid tablecloths and charming decor add to the experience. Everything on the menu is delicious. Great spot for lunch for 2 to a large party. We've celebrated Grandma's birthday here and they accommodate large crowds in the back room easily. The back room is an extension of the... More

We arrived at lunchtime on a Saturday. We were greeted and seated immediately at a nice quiet table upstairs. We enjoyed the ambiance and were stoked to get a nice Italian meal. We started with an order of garlic bread which was very tasty. My wife had gluten free pasta with marinara sauce and said it was "ok". I had... More

This is a really cool place. Once you walk in through the doors, there are walls of exposed brick, the decor in the front main dining area is gorgeous! We were taken to the Arch Room, which I know of because we were testing out this place for a possible rehearsal dinner spot. Calamari-- good flavor, tasty sauce...overall the food... More

This was an excellent choice for lunch with friends when I arrived in Dubuque. The ambiance was just what we needed after not having seen one another for several years. It was a quiet day, which was great for us because we could visit. The garlic bread was awesome, the salad was fresh and the service was good.
