I got linguine and clams to go. They put a lot of clams in the dish (in the shell) which I really liked. The pasta was cooked perfectly. The sauce could have use a little more seasoning. The bread they supplied was really good and...plenty of it. I also like the Caesar salad. I would return here to try one of there many other dishes if I am in the area.More

Valentines Night we were so pleasantly surprised at our luck. The estimated wait time of 35 minutes was on spot. The service was courteous and prompt. The food was fantastic! Highly recommend.

The food is excellent here I love the chicken Sinatra it is fantastic. The calamari is awesome and the service is great it’s just very hard to get around in that restaurant on a Friday or Saturday night when it is crowded you’re bumping into...people and stuff otherwise it would be a five every thing on the menu is deliciousMore

Peak hour beepers here for a reason. People love tasty food. Ordered the calamari, delicious salad, & rigatoni ala vodka. YUMMY! It's worth the wait, so try to go on a weekday to avoid the crowd.

Since we stepped into this restaurant, customer service was stellar. Restaurant is big and have a nice bar. Big portions of tasty food. My son ordered Shrimp & Lobster risotto, delicious. My husband ordered Filet Mignon with pasta aglio-olio excellent too. Medium well meat was...very tender. Pasta fagioli soup tasty and big enough portion. I tried the Angelo salad and loved it. Also ordered Penne with vegetables and chicken in a light reddish sauce with good flavor. Our waiter Fito was amazing, professional and his customer service was A1. We tried the cannoli and tiramisu for dessert. We were very happy with our new choice of Italian restaurant. We will definetly come back to Vignetos in Plantation, a real hidden gem.More

First time here with my Daughter on her recommendation, Carlos was our server and did an outstanding job of being attentive and professional. The pre-meal bread was like it just came out of the oven, Delicious with a side of warm olive oil and garlic....She has the penne alla vodka which was perfectly al dente! I had the chicken francese that was tender and with a terrific balance of lemon & butter. Generous portions that I will savor for dinner tonight! Grazie Vigneto's!More

Very solid Italian food, a bit pricey but very good. All of the Italian favs. are served here, the pasta's are good the salads very good and the service excels. A busy place with the local's, good parking and a reservation is suggested. This is...also a very nice looking place inside, i always eat here and have never been unhappy with the food or service. Weekend's can be busy.More

Well we have had great meals here in the past. Honestly though this one sucked. Both veal dishes were sub par as they were not cooked properly. Apparently the pasta accompanied one was not edible. The Carbonnara was good though. I caught our server Rolando...doing a shot. He served us in the past and was very good but was shaky on this visit and non existent. I think we have to continue our search as the consistency is not here. Depressed.More

I was born in Italy and grew up in Italy, for the first 28 years of my life. We had a dinner on Wednesday night at Vigneto, and I knew for a fact that pasta could not be "al dente", despite the waiter said that...they always cook pasta "al dente" (yeah, give me a break!!!) So I did not order pasta, but trying not to risk, I went with a Pizza Margherita. Despite I ate it, I cannot say that it was a good pizza by any standard. The dough was average. The tomato on top is way too much, and very little mozzarella. Because of too much tomato, the dough was soggy on top, which is the N.1 mistake, when you prepare a pizza. Colleagues went for pasta, and when I asked if it was "al dente" they said that it looked like it was overcooked by several minutes!!! This is a sin for any Italian from Sicilia to Valle D'Aosta!!! And to cook it al dente, you do not need to be Gordon Ramsay. You just need to be able to read a watch and stick to the instructions indicated in the box. It's one of those things I do not understand of US restaurants. Portions of pasta were huge, and way too much sauce, which was too watery and not sticking to the pasta. To my surprise I have to say, the place was full in every single table and for a Wednesday night, I thought it was incredible. I cannot explain these things. Those who are impressed by Vigneto, they have never been to Italy, and they have not got a clue on how to cook..... Not sure why some items in the menu, such as steaks were indicated as "market price". I can understand for some fishes, truffles, lobsters, or other expensive items. But a steak? I feel it's one of those items that if you order it, and do not ask the price, you'll get a nice surprise when you get the bill!More

I just two guests for lunch at Vignettos for lunch. It was the first time for the 2 guests and each of us ordered different items. The portions were plentiful and vary flavorful. I ordered pasta rigatony and it was done perfectly "al dente". One...guest had salmon and the other guest a large salad which they thoroughly enjoyed. We were served very fast and the server was professional and came back twice to inquire if we were satisfied or needed any otehr item. I have taken guests for business lunch on other ocassions and they were very satisfied.More

Yes, they have a wine list with a variety of nice wines including Italian Chiantis. Prices are moderate unless you order "market price" steaks or seafood - more on the high end.
