Try this place for the first time. We were greeted by everybody when we walked in the door and see if we had been regulars. We were fortunate enough to be seated promptly. Our female server as well as the mail servers stop by our table were as friendly as could be and we appreciate is that type of atmosphere.... More

Italian is not my favorite, but the food here was very good. Our server Davey was very good and patient with us. He was very good. They were busy, and we was hopping all over the place.

We shared a table with a local couple who has eaten here many times they really praised the food and for good reason it's good! It's a diamond in the rough with a great reputation as Asheville's best Italian eatery four years running. We had the special insalata caprese with heirloom tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, garlic, and rosemary infused... More

Went to Vinnie's after reading reviews on Tripadvisor while in Asheville on business with 5 coworkers. We went on a Tuesday, thinking it would not be busy. The parking lot was almost full which was encouraging. Tuesday is $2 draft beer night, a good start. We all shared mozzarella marinara sticks, zucchini fritti and garlic bread knots. I had a... More

We ordered pizza and salads plus their homemade sangria.The food came without a long wait and everything was tasty. Our server was friendly and... More

We found this place per Trip Advisor recommendation. We decided to stop for dinner in Ashville on our way to Charleston. OMG....we both decided this place needs to be closer to our home in Maryville, Tn. But then on the other hand it's probably better that it's not because it was so good! We definitely will return....it may require an... More

We normally go to Vinnie's on the weekends, but decided to go in on a Thursday night for a change. The owner greeted us as we walked in and then the whole staff welcomed us. While it was the same time we usually arrive on the weekend, tonight there is no wait. After being seated, we ordered a Ceasar salad,... More
