Everything we had was delicious. The garlic knots were fantastic. The portions were generous, and we were sad we were travelling and couldn't take the leftovers with us.

We just moved to the Asheville area, and several of our neighbors mentioned this place as a good place for Italian food. So... off we went to give it a try. We were not disappointed! It was a warm evening so there were folks dining al fresco, and so as we approached the entrance we were warmly greeted by one... More

Every now and then you find local spots that nail it on all fronts. Ambiance, Staff, Food, the entire experience. Vinnie's does just that. From the warm boisterous greeting, to the dessert that left my friend saying "that was the best cheesecake in my life" I can't pin point an area of improvement, and after years of being in restaurants...

Wondered how good Italian fare ended up in Western NC. Turns out the owner is from Brooklyn, NY. Great food, and if Grace is your waitress, the experience will match the food.

Do not let the casual atmosphere fool you. The food is traditional, excellently prepared, and served in large portions. Waitstaff is efficient and knowledgeable. This was our first time at Vinnie's and it will definitely be one of our go to spots when we visit Asheville. The cheese cake was probably the best we have experienced and the Tiramisu served...

Was visiting Ashville and found this fantastic Italian place. Food was awesome, staff was fantastic and it was Friday $5 martini night! A must stop in Ashville. Asheville has some great food and restaurants you can't beat Vinnie's classic style.

Went here for an insurance meeting, everything was great. All the food we tried that night was cooked well and very flavorful. I had a chicken dish ( I think Chicken Picata?) my wife had the Eggplant Parmesan which was out of this world good. We had all the appetizer's, all were good, the cheesecake was great for desert.
