First of all I would like to say I really like this place and we live right around the corner from it. The garlic bread that they give you while waiting is very good. The entrees are slightly over sauced and there is a general lack of vegetables across the menu. I really wish they would add a side... read more

I stumbled upon Vinny's on a trip back to Roanoke, VA from the Outer Banks. To my surprise this little eatery in a retail, strip center on the very edge of the Raleigh/Durham metro area featured an authentic Italian menu and excellent food. Service matched the food. It has now become a staple stop for me when heading home from... More

We stopped at this place when we were enroute from the Northeast to Winston-Salem, NC. We were hungry and looking for something other than fast food. We stumbled across Vinnys on our way to a Subway. Great decision to go it. Fast service. Large drinks. They could work on the garlic bread.... it was kind of like hot dog rolls... More

I have been taking customers to Vinny's for years. It is great for lunch and a good value. We usually have great service and the staff always recognizes us. It is obviously not a gastronomical restaurant, but we never have any complaints, everybody has their favorites. When something is not right, they will make it right. It is a great... More

The food has consistently gone downhill with each visit. Tonight we stopped by at 8:28 for some quick takeout since they close at 9 only to find their doors locked. Who turns away money?!??! Evidently they do, and I can guarantee that they don't even care based on how they treat their customers.

Atmosphere is good. Service is good. The food leaves a lot to be desired. The pasta meat sauce looked and tasted like it came from a can. I will not be going back. Radius in downtown is much better.

Decided to try Vinny's because we had a coupon. Turned out coupon wasn't good with lunch special but we decided to try it anyway. What a pleasant surprise! We've only lived in this area for 6 months and have tried a few Italian restaurants already. Vinny's is by far my favorite. Lunch portions were plentiful. Baked spaghetti had plenty of... More

I have been a regular at Vinny's since it opened. I have never had a bad experience - the food is delicious and the servings always mean a second meal for me - I take home half every time. Service can be slow when they are very busy - which is often - but it is never a serious issue.... More
