Bad Service, Okay Pizza

I went here about 3 months ago and our server was visibly unclean and smelled of body odor. We changed servers and ordered mozzarella sticks and a pepperoni pizza with garlic wings on the side. Food was okay, but we didn't finish it or take it home because a lot of the servers seemed to be dirty... read more

This is not your average pizza place where all else is mediocre. I have not had a pasta side dish like this since I have been down here (3 years). My husband finally got shrimp scampi the way it should be. I can not say enough about the service, the holiday décor, the friendly staff AND THE FOOD----perfect.

Food was fine. Not terrible, not great. Won't be back because we immediately smelled alcohol on the breath of our server, and his glassy eyes and slurred speech confirmed our suspicion. I've got nothing against people that drink, however I don't find it particularly appealing to have a wasted server.

It was okay, nothing special. We had pizza, the crust was hard on the bottom, but not burned. We're just here for a short time and probably won't be back.

The pizza was super greasy and the spagetti and what they called 'meat balls' wasn't as good as what you could make with sauce out of a jar.

Very good food and the service was excellent and friendly staff. Basic gluten free pizza was really nice and larger than you might think.

All I can say is that if you don't try this pizza you will be kicking yourselves all the way back to where you came from. Friendly people. Great atmosphere.

My son and I ate here twice during our four day stay in the area. The pizza was fantastic! We were so surprised by the quality of the fresh veggies used on the pizza.

Uncle Vinny's is more upscale than a pizza joint but far too casual to be called fine dining. With a small bar by the entrance and a dining room with about 10 tables in the next room, it is a friendly place to get pizza or some standard Italian fare. The staff are friendly and the pizza is tasty. I... More
