Awesome Italian food

When in Asheville NC a must is Vinnies!! Great food, most pleasant servers (Jessa) and in tune management (Adam). Come to find out through conversation, the manager was a south FL boy and we were FL people! Great experience and we'll go back again.

We found the restaurant on TA as we rolled into town on a Wednesday. It was about a 15-20 minute wait, but the hostess was very friendly. The fresh bread was really great and the rest of our pasta meals were nice. The waiter was friendly and was great at answering all our food questions.

We started off with the steak tartar, which had a wonderful flavor. I then had the Sunday Gravy and it was fantastic. This is a shareable meal.

This place is awesome. Yes, you will have to wait because they generally do not take reservations however the 30 minute wait is well worth it, and my family is not patient. You can grab a bottle of wine, drink it while you wait for your table. The staff is super friendly and the food....incredible. You will not be disappointed,... More

We ordered mozarella sticks, chicken parm, spahhetti with Sunday Gravy and tomato smoked lobster linguini. All were very, very good! Service from Zoe was great! Definitely will be back and highly recommend.

Having never been to Asheville, NC, we wanted to eat somewhere we can't eat at home. We found this recommended in a local dining guide, put it into the GPS and drove to it. The five of us, including our 3 teenage and up sons, were greeted by at least two employees before we even got in the front door.... More

The food at Vinnie's was outstanding. RICH, authentic italian food at it's best. If you love Italian food, this hometown restaurant is a must. Just a few minutes drive from The Omni Grove Park Inn too.

We've been here several times, and the food quality is consistently good. I wouldn't call any of our meals exceptional, but they have all been competently executed. Service can be inconsistent, but it was adequate on our most recent visit. They made some mistakes early on, but they genuinely worked hard to make it right and finish the night's service... More

We've been here on several occasions and I always seem to order the special. On this past occasion I ordered the special which was zuppa de peche which I assumed was a bunch of seafood on a bed of pasta. What I got was a bowl of seafood in broth with no pasta. It wasn't worry tasty and was very... More
