After looking at the menu on-line, we decided to go here for dinner. Looking at the menu again, we both decided on the side Caesar salad and the Trietto a la Vodka. The pasta dish was a very healthy portion – a little too much sauce, but good. We both enjoyed it and had enough to take home. Not having... More

Says a lot when a group of Italian New Yorkers gather in this restaurant to share family times of a wedding rehearsal dinner and are wow'd by the food and service! From the garlic knots...to the salad ...to the delicious entrees of eggplant, chicken, veal and penne ala vodka! Something for everyone! Served buffet style to pick and choose. This... More

Once again, the great TripAdvisor app comes through! We were in the mood for Italian while in the Newport News area, and the app found us this restaurant. The Italian salad which came with our lunch was fresh and tasty. My son got the Pollo (chicken) Piccata and I got the Veal Piccata. Both were outstanding and thoroughly enjoyed by... More

I would say this is a best kept secret, but the place is always full. Reservations are recommended. Simply outstanding and wide assortment of value priced, excellent food served by the very best servers in a relatively quaint neighborhood restaurant. The flounder dish with pasta is to die for. Ask for Melanie!

Wow I can't believe how good this food was. I eat Italian all the time and they blew it out of the park. Staff was so polite and helpful too

We had the Chicken and Portabello Mushroom wraps and they were both really good. They came with spicy fries and served as a great compliment. We also had the lemon berry cake with mascarpone cheese for dessert. Wow don't miss this dessert it is out of this world!

We found this restaurant on Groupon and weren't sure what to expect. We are somewhat critical of Italian food being from New York. Seriously, the best Penne ala Vodka I have ever had. Very impressed that lunch included salad and the dressing was delicious too! The décor is lovely. The waitress was friendly. Overall, excellent place. Will definitely be back!

I write my reviews around the answer to this question, "Would I recommend the subject of the review to my children?' In the case of Vineyard, I honestly don't know. The food is great -- and has been so each time we've visited (3 lunches, 1 dinner). However, the management needs to either 1) train; or 2) replace the servers...or... More

We stumbled upon this italian gem in the search for a lunch venue. We were more than pleasantly surprised - the restaurant is tastefully decorated, the service is great, and the food delicious! And for lunch pricing the portions are pretty generous too! We did start off with the zuppa di cosce - mussels in white wine sauce, that was... More
