My husband & I tried Uncle Vinny's for the 1st time & loved it. They have NY style pizzas, pasta, subs, & salads. We tried Uncle Vinny's Combo pizza minus anchovies (everything but the kitchen sink). It was great! The place is small but has a few tables for 6. They do not take reservations & recommend come early or... More

The owner is gregarious, lively, and very welcoming. Many restaurant owners could use pointers from her in helping someone feel right at home. The food is pretty decent. It definitely beats the watered-down popular pizza trifecta (Pizza Hut/Domino's/Papa John's) but it's not near the high standard of a true NY Pizza joint. Even if they do play Sinatra in the...

Have been here twice, and was not impressed either time. I ordered pizza both times and both times it was luke warm and the crust barely brown. Once I brought it home, and put it in my oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, then it tasted delicious! The lady who waited on my table was very rude and... More

This is good pizza. We ordered pizza and salads and took them back to our condo and enjoyed them with some beers. A large pizza and two salads was enough for dinner and lunch the next day. The salads had a little more to them with mixed greens too.

Decent Italian. I ordered lasagna. It was not evenly heated but a good size portion. They serve garlic knots that have A LOT of garlic on them.

Have been here every year. Love the food and it is hands down better than Freddies! You don't have to sell your first born to be able to afford it or get a table...bonus! Had Judi as a server, love her too! This place needs to move up the ranks here!!

We had a group of 10 of us. Like all of the restaurants in the area, it is not a large restaurant. When we first got there, they were going to seat us at separate tables (one inside and one outside). One of the waitresses asked if we would rather sit together. I said that if nothing was available right... More

Being from Ohio we have a "Cousin Vinny's". Trust me it's no relation as far as dining inside. This is a great pizza place with an awesome atmosphere! I recommend it!

The pizza was so good we went back for take-out a second time. The thin crust was done to perfection.
