We had the best meal ever at Vinnie's tonight ...and I don't mean just meals that we've had at that restaurant. I mean anywhere ! It was listed on their specials insert to their menu this evening. We started out with their outstanding mussels and a Caesar salad. Our server, Thea, then brought us a basket of assorted breads with... More

The six of us arrived with our call ahead at seven o'clock and were seated promptly. They will give you favorite seating with a call ahead for 5 or more (they don't take reservations). After we were seated was when the meal went down hill. We started with two "Antipasti Di Famiglia" for the 6 of us ($30), they where... More

For our first trip to Asheville we had the good fortune to choose Vinnie's Neighborhood Italian Restaurant for our evening meal. Our server Kelly was wonderful answering all our questions about the menu and the city. We all had the Lasagna and a Greek salad and both were some of the best I have ever eaten, not to mention the... More

Too bad! It had been a few years since I last ate at Vinnie's and I remembered it as basic but solid. Unfortunately our dinner this time was not worth the bill. Greek salad was swimming in dressing that tasted like it came out of a bottle. Pizza was skimpy on the toppings and cooked way too long, making for... More

We lived in Philly for six years, visited NYC often. Upon moving here we really missed Italian food until we found Vinnie's. Thanks for being a little bit of NYC in the mountains of NC. Wonderful menu, great food and great service!

The pizza was really good. The service we received from Jessa was friendly and professional. We highly recommend the home style cooking.

I have been to Vinnie's on many occassions with family, and with my parter. It definitely has that old time Italian, friendly atmosphere. It also puts me in mind of a New York City culinary experience with a touch of Southern hospitality. But of all of the area Italian eateries, this one has the tastiest red sauce of any, hands...
