Having had a great meal in the past, decided to pick up a pizza. Called on 7/31 at around 4pm. No answer. Called 3 more times. No answer. Gave up and got a pizza from a different place.

This place can be terribly cold. They run the air-conditioning hard to keep wait-staff cool. Even my husband was cold which almost never happens. Food is average.

We eat here at least once a week. The food is great and the prices are very reasonable. The wait staff is very friendly and very efficient. Highly recommended.

Vinny's is one of our favorite local spots for a solid meal at a reasonable price. Usually very easy to get in and out, with attentive and pleasant service from the staff. Our family goes about once per month and among the 4 of us we've enjoyably tried close to half the menu. No complaints, no let-downs.

Vinny's is a small town mom and pop style restaurant. Our recent visit was on a Sunday at noontime and it was quite busy. In spite of the crowd our hot food was ready by the time we were finished with salads. Our server was very pleasant and took good care of us. The food is fine but nothing exceptional.... More

We had takeout from Vinny's a few weeks ago and the experience was typical for our most recent visits. My wife had a chicken parmesan sandwich and I had a medium pizza. The sandwich was very good according to my wife - 2 thumbs up according to her. I was underwhelmed by the pizza. The crust was tough and overcooked,... More

We have visited this restaurant several times because of its convenient location and because there aren't that many options in Hillsborough for casual dining that is not fast food. The food is mediocre, the service is average. It is definitely not somewhere we would rate as a favorite. Pros: convenient location Cons: mediocre food, slow service on busy nights

I meet with customers at Vinny's at least once a month. They recently renovated blocking out the bottom part of the windows... this was a bad choice making the entire eating area dark. None of the people that have been visiting for years like it. It does not make the place cozy or intimate, just dark. I hope the owner... More

First of all I would like to say I really like this place and we live right around the corner from it. The garlic bread that they give you while waiting is very good. The entrees are slightly over sauced and there is a general lack of vegetables across the menu. I really wish they would add a side item... More

I stumbled upon Vinny's on a trip back to Roanoke, VA from the Outer Banks. To my surprise this little eatery in a retail, strip center on the very edge of the Raleigh/Durham metro area featured an authentic Italian menu and excellent food. Service matched the food. It has now become a staple stop for me when heading home from... More
