Amazing Italian food and cool ambiance, old school but hip as well but...food is off the hook. Just out of downtown but well worth it!! Don't try downtown Italian, trust me!!

Every dish had a gluten free option. And it was so good that I wanted to come back the next day. Best moscato I've ever tried. Atmosphere was fun and our waitress was fabulous. Parking was tough though so plan ahead.

Food was not that great. Noodles barely warm. I had eggplant parmesan and it was OK. Husband had lasagna and it was barely warm. Everyone is really, really nice.

I live within walking distance of Vinnie's, so it is in my best interest to see this restaurant succeed. The food is good and the staff is friendly but the service really needs to be improved. Maybe they think they're being casual but I think the wait staff is just not trained. Last time, we were four at a table.... More

We eat at Vinnie's on a regular basis and have never been disappointed. The food, including pizza, is of good quality. They'll modify entrees to fit your preferences. The staff and bar tenders are knowledgeable, responsive and well managed. It was a surprise, but their catering is outstanding. Even if you're not "in the neighborhood," check Vinnie's out.

An earlier reviewer commented on how you are greeted when you walk into Vinnie's. That's probably what drew us to this restaurant - that, & we like Italian restaurants. As you walk in, you are greeted by several shouts of, "Welcome to Vinnie's". And then the friendly conversation & fun with the staff begins. The basket of bread was wonderful.... More

Calamari was really good. My husband had the twice baked lasagna and this is his go to. He said it was good but he has had better. He likes that cheesy baked over approach. The veal piccata was good but not the best I ever had have but overall we enjoyed the dinner. The wait staff is awesome and very... More

When you walk in and hear multiple shouts of "Welcome to Vinnie's", you know it will be a great experience. We have been here many times and the food and service has always been great. A few of our favorites are the Chicken or Eggplant Parmesan and the Salmon. The variety of homemade breads served with the olive oil/balsamic vinegar... More

We loved the classics menu - the Veal Marsala and the Chicken Parmigiana are fantastic! The bread and oil/basalmic vinegar mixture set us up for success. Ask for David, he'll make sure you have a great experience.
