I visited Vini e Vecchi along with what seems like the rest of the population of Western Europe yesterday evening. Fortunately I had a reservation while almost everyone else didn't. The result was that every minute or so people would come in only to be turned around again. The place seems to be very popular iwth everyone with the exception of people who are trying to eat dinner there!
The food is absolutely fine. It is not great, but then prices are modest. It offers good home cooking at reasonable prices, but it has become the victim of the "Tripadvisor affect". Like myself, thousands of others are looking on TA for favoured restaurants and then finding them full and booked up for several weeks.
In an attempt to redress the imbalance, let me state once again that this place isn't great and I am baffled as to why it is so popular. It seems to be famous for being famous!
