I'm so glad we found this place on our visit to Asheville. The service was fantastic. Our waiter Nathaniel was so knowledgable, enthusiastic, and just fabulous. Portions were huge and good was delicious and fresh. everything from the minute we walked through the door (I think every employee spoke to us, welcomed us and thanked us) was just awesome.

We were in the mood for Italian food. Based on other interviews we gave Vinnies a try. we had the lasagna and shrimp fra diablo.The food was homemade but had no depth. The sauce tasted like was just pored out of a can. Limited seasoning and little thought. The ricotta cheese cake lacked completion, also. The cake was too wet.... More

We are visiting in Asheville, making some preliminary contacts before moving here in a year or so. We both love Italian food and decided to try Vinnie's after reading about their garlic knots, which sounded like the garlic rolls at a restaurant we loved where we once lived. We love Italian food, have traveled in Italy a lot - and... More

Last October, we discovered Vinnie's Italian restaurant. We remember what an awesome dining experience it was. This year we were able to visit twice in the short time we were there. What a wonderful Italian eatery! From the garlic knots, pasta fazool & minestrone soups to eggplant parmesan and chicken parmesan covered with amazing house made tomato sauce, everything was... More

Our server, Brandon, couldn't have been any better. He was attentive, polite, and very pleasant. We felt that we had been there many times in the past but in fact this was our first time! The food was delicious. We started with a cocktail, Ward 8, that was fabulous. the salad was green, the bread warm, and a very large... More

Vinnie's was recommended to us by several people and it did not disappoint. We had the Italian Garbage salad that was delicious. It had some Italian meats and cheeses, cherry peppers capers and Italian vinaigrette and it was outstanding. we also had the spaghetti with Sunday Gravy which has Italian sausage and meatballs, yum! The ambience is very nice and... More

Vinnie's is my kind of Italian restaurant with delicious home-style pasta dishes as the main event. It was so good that we went twice in one week while visiting Asheville. For those of you who want upscale Italian food, don't go here. But if you want a plate of spaghetti and meatballs or lasagna, this is where you need to... More

This was my second visit to Asheville, and since I had good memories of my first visit and a dinner at Vinnie's, I was definitely going back to Vinnies. It was as good as I remembered! The service was fast, efficient, and friendly, and the food was delightfully Italian! We enjoyed a really good NY style pizza, a super cheesy/spinach... More
