The service was the only good thing about it. Food was burned and grease dripping. I had to make up for the bad taste with ranch. I don't mind paying for good food, but this was way overpriced for the quality.

With slow as molasses service in the dining area, we thought we would try our luck at the bar but struck out there, too. Even though they were fairly busy, it still should not take an hour to get a pizza. This is supposed to be an Italian restaurant, but comes up closer to a Jersey shore dive. Beers were... More

There were a few poor reviews for this place on the site but we decided to try it as it was right across the street from where we were staying and they had gluten free offerings. Everyone enjoyed their food. The gluten free crust was thin and crispy! Very tasty! The server was very friendly and the food arrived fairly... More

My boyfriend, 2 young children and I went to Uncle Vinnys after going to the beach hoping for a nice dinner. We started off ordering calamari, they came out and said there wasn't any. We replaced that with mozzarella sticks that came out not fully cooked. We ate them anyways because we were so hungry. My boyfriend ordered a bud... More

We ordered pizza from this restaurant since they advertise gluten-free pizza. I had read many reviews on this and other sites; they were very mixed but seemed to convey a general theme of 'so-so' and SLOW. We ordered 40 minutes ahead and the pizza's were done when we arrived at the designated pickup time. I was shocked by how expensive... More

We stopped by here on a Friday night in August at about 8 pm to place a to-go pizza order to bring back to our hotel. It was packed and I figured it would be on a Friday but thought we'd just place the order, run to the store and grab some other snacks/drinks and come back. We waited at... More

Please clean your beer lines! Host/bartender smelled so bad we went from bar to a table. We should of left. People at other tables commented on his stench. Food was mediocre at best and service was terrible. I got yelled at across dining room to see if I wanted another beer! People next to us sent their pizza back it... More

We were staying at condo's across the street and walked over to give it a try....Warm greeting and and an excellent server who was very attentive. We had the meat lovers pie and it was delicious-great crust and the flavor overall was superb. Our son had fettuccine Alfredo with chicken which he thoroughly enjoyed. Prices are reasonable, good service and... More

We were a little nervous to go after reading a few reviews but glad we did. The service was wonderful & the waitress was very friendly. The food was very good. My only issue & it's kind of a big issue was the flies. They really need to work on that. We will most likely go again while here even... More

We visit Uncle Vinny's EVERY time we visit the Carolina/Kure Beach area. It is the absolute BEST Italian food in the area. Pizza has a crispy, thin crust and the fettuccine alfredo (with chicken) is absolutely DELISH!! For those who partake, the homemade Sangria is also quite lovely. The entire staff is so friendly - it makes you feel like... More
