The food at Vinny's is out of the world good! This is the real deal and it tastes like it. It's not like the chains where they throw a ton of oregano on something and call it Italian. You do not want to pass this humble place by and miss our on the best meal of your life. Get inside... More

Well like the title says, Vinny's restaurant makes one feel as part of a large family. Let me share my experience. It was my last day in California, before I was flying back to Mumbai(sometime in July 2012). Me and Parul(at present my wife and the lady who actually found the place) had a nice and delicious dinner which included... More

My daughter and I took my almost 94 year old mother out for dinner. The food was delicious, and the portions were amazing!!! My Mom's family is from Sicily, so she really loved it! The service was great, and we took home enough for dinner the next night!

They have good food at normal prices. I had the special sea food once and it was all deep fried and over cooked. Their pizza is good and so is their pasta. The Cannoli is hand made in house and is very good. Service is hit or miss, because they never know if they will be busy or slow, so... More

Ok, by saying it's better than the Italian chain restaurants I know it's only faint praise. You'll need a navigator to find this place if it's your first time. Look for the statue of a fat chef on the street side. Once inside, there is large space with old family photos gracing the walls. There are booths along both sides... More

My son turned me on to this hole in the wall restaurant. I took a good friend for lunch and we split a pizza. The pizza was outstanding! In my opinion two things make the pizza... sauce and crust. The sauce was very good but it was the crust that we both thought was lighter than other places. There's nothing... More

Awesome sauce! Sweet and thick, couldn't do better myself! Large portions! Hidden across the street from In & Out Burger. Atmosphere is nothing special, but food makes up for it.
