We had a great meal at Vinney Vanuccho's! We both had veal Parmesan with enough for 2 meals! It was delicious! The service was outstanding! We purchased their salad dressing which was delicious! I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Great food and service. Historical atmosphere with many vintage photographs and antiques. Outdoor seating option and three levels indoors make for an interesting restaurant.

Wonderful restaurant with excellent food and reasonable prices. The building itself, especially the inside, is a work of art.

Our wonderful B and B made out reservations for dinner here, what a wonderful place. Great view, wonderful atmosphere, and the absolute best Pasta I have had in a very long time. We had the 32 dollar Malbec and it topped the dinner off! Great staff! Highly recommend.

We had a wonderful dining experience. We had our own little room in a very cozy Italian atmosphere. Our waitress was wonderful, as was the food. Generous portions and delicious. The garlic bread is the best! I definitely recommend dining here.

We went to dinner wanting a light entree and didn't go wrong by ordering the soup, salad and garlic bread. The bread is to die for. The staff were extremely attentive and even the manager stopped by our table. It is a fun place to eat and family photos add to the ambiance of the dining experience.
