Friends who live in Friday Harbor recommended Vinny's. They report visiting Vinny's nearly every week. They are excellent cooks themselves, so we heeded their advice. So glad we did. We found Vinny's to be a warm, charming restaurant with excellent food. Our very personable waitress reports that many locals are regulars and that many of the waitpersons have worked there happily for years. Repeat local customers and long time staff says a great deal about the quality of the food and expertise of the management. First course salads were fresh and well prepared. My husband noted that there was chicken piccata on the menu and veal with another sauce but no veal piccata which is his favorite. He asked if there was any chance he could have veal piccata. No problem. He reported it to be excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed my well seasoned pasta carbonarra dish. Other pasta dishes from those seated around us also received rave reviews. When we were undecided between two bottles of wine, our waitress brought us samples of both. With excellent customer service, interesting and well prepared food and a warm, welcoming atmosphere it's no surprise that locals and tourists alike are repeat customers. We will be next time we visit Friday Harbor.
