Treat yourself to great food and the friendliest staff in Asheville!

I've been a regular patron of Vinnie's since I moved to Asheville last year. As the general manager of a local Bed and Breakfast, it's part of my job to sample food and fun in the area in order to guide my guests to the best places.

The food was good but our entrees arrived before our bread, wine, and appetizer. Our entrees was not hot, just sort of warm. They were rewarmed and returned to our table 3 minutes later at the same time as our bread, wine and appetizer finally arrived. We also ordered 2 deserts to go which were charged to our check. After... More

This has been a favorite since it was the Savoy restaurant. Though it changed from fine food to Italian, believe owner is the same and maybe the chef. The food remains delicious, always with some specials that harken back to the Savoy. There is no greeting like the one upon entering Vinnie's: all nearby staff welcome you! The service is... More

My wife and I both rated the lasagna as among the best we've ever had. Portions were enormous. Good service

This place is the real deal! Wonderfully prepared Italian dishes in an interesting atmosphere. You can bring in your own wine, but their selections are great. Don't be put off by the borderline neighbourhood.

We visited Vinnie's on the Saturday before Mother's Day. It was packed and there was no parking available so we had to park across the street. We had to wait about 45 minutes to be seated. During this time they brought around samples of their pizza which was awesome. Our waiter was great. He went over all the specials with... More

Great food and friendly service as usual. The only problem is..everyone has discovered it, always busy but the wait times are not bad. A true GEM in Asheville.
