if you want REAL ITALIAN food made by REAL Brooklyn ITALIANS, you need to stop by here. NOWWWWW!!! everything on the menu is homemade it the open kitchen in which you shall see Vito master chef. The Eggplant Parmigiana is to die for, try the Chicken Parmigiana too. each dinner comes with a vegatable and loads of bread.

i remember carroll gardens when it was a predominately working class neighborhood. ninos restaurant which has since closed provided classic home style cooking to the neighborhood. vinny's is a family spin off that has supplanted the former establishment---awesome italian food at reasonable prices.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a New Yorker when he found out we were staying in Brooklyn. Easy to find (take the F Train to Carroll, turn left & you're almost there) and the atmosphere was warm & inviting; the smell of garlic cooking fillled the air when we walked in. Everyone was very friendly, even the other... More

Come hungry because the portions are good. As an added bonus after walking the Brooklyn Bridge and then all the way to the restaurant we were please to find... More

Walked in Arrogant waitress . Sticky tables. Superbly bad service. Wouldn't bother . The food is boring.. The waitress for some reason took an instant dislike to us. WHY ? Find some where else to eat. Bad choice of restaurant..

Being a New York transplant living out west, I always look forward to my east coast trips to visit some of my favorite eateries. Vinny's has become our go-to Italian place whenever we are in Brooklyn or lower Manhattan. Yeah, it's that good. Not only the fresh ingredients and value, but the 'feel like family' atmosphere of this comfy establishment... More

We're on vacation in New York at present, and came here for two nights in a row. We liked it much the first time. The food is really great and plentiful. We had to share the table with other people, yet the overall atmosphere was nice and reflected very much the neighborhood the restaurant is located in. On our second... More

As they say in the neighborhood, "Vinny feeds you good." Award-winning eggplant parm. Not for the diet-conscious. But really tasty.
