We drive in for an overnight on our way to our vacation destination with plans to visit VV. We walked down the street from our hotel in the rain, got seated immediately... And ignored for 15 minutes. We walked out after, who I would assume would have been our waitress, finally came in, walked past us several times and proceeded... More

We stopped here while driving around town and based on Tripadvisor.com reviews and it was an excellent choice. They had a gluten free menu and and waitstaff that were knowledgeable about the gluten free options. Sunny was our waitress and you should ask for her if you can. She was awesome!

This is one place you gotta stop. Great food. Great atmosphere. Simply a really classy place that makes you feel at home. Very charming atmosphere with excellent staff. Try the fun Hors d'oeuvr. I had the Vinny Canuchhi Special. Delicious and plenty to eat!

We had a late night dinner at Vinny Vanucchi's which was recommended by a couple drunk Cowboys on the street. They were right cause they food was very good. The menu had a lot of traditional Italian dishes with a few twists. Since it was late we decided to share a plate of Linguini noodles with shrimp and broccoli in... More

So hard to find delicious Italian food. The garlic butter bread, so amazing. Then got a meatball sandwich and I love to get those at any Italian place that serves them. Best I have ever had!! The meatball itself had such great taste, but then the sauce on top, very amazing also. Boyfriend got the fettuccine chicken Alfredo. Also delicious,... More

Ate an early dinner here on a Tuesday night. Service was great. Salad was pretty average, tasty dressing, so so lettuce. Garlic bread was highlight of the meal. Ordered the chicken parm, and it was huge! However the taste was pretty average, and the spaghetti side was average at best. Glass of merlot was pretty good. Next time, I'll sample... More

First we saw they had both tiramisu and cannoli. We order those first so we had room!!!! Superb! Then we ordered the pizza, delish. Wish it had a crisper crust but all fresh ingredients and awesome.

We celebrated my birthday at Vinny's last evening. It had been a very busy day at work, I'd missed breakfast and lunch, so when my wife suggested Vinny's, I was very happy. Our server was very attentive, and the timing of everything was just right- no waiting, but not rushed. This was a Monday night, usually a quiet night for... More
