This is our special place. For any occasion, or none at all. Excellent food. Drinks and Barkeeps are super! Waitstaff and management, always on point. LOVE this place. Never had a thing we didn't like.

Every time we eat at Vinnie's we receive great food and great service. Had not been to gnocchi night (Wednesday's) until last week...one word: fantastic! We have traveled to many Italian and Croatian cities and had authentic gnocchi. Vinnie's was just as good. Can't wait until next Wednesday night!

After eating seafood for five days while on a low country road trip we decided we were in the mood for something different and found Vinnies on TA. We had a fantastic meal in a very comfortable setting. Menu checked all the boxes, classic Italian, wine list just OK, did not have dessert but it looked very good. Wife could... More

Vinnie's is a bit of a hole in the wall type place, but the food is great! The spaghetti with "Sunday Gravy" was to die for. I enjoyed it so much, I want to return just for supper and I live nearly 500 miles away. The drinks at the bar were delicious and the service provided by James was excellent.

We found this restaurant thru a menu at the Visitor Center. The service and staff were very good. The salads were excellent. For entree, I had Chicken Parm, it was really good but a little too much breading for my taste. My spouse had Eggplant Parm and he loved it. If we had more time, I would go back to... More

The food is awesome! We had Lobster Ravioli with a Caesar salad & Chicken Parm with Minestrone soup. Both dishes were superb! Portion size were good, but most importantly tasted great & very fresh! Best Italian food we have had in awhile! The atmosphere was very engaging! We've never been to a restaurant where we felt so welcomed by all... More

First off... Come hungry cause the portions are large! Meatball Calzone was the size of a football! Lobster ravioli was great! Garlic knots for an app was a good choice to start. And finished it all off with a cannoli. Would return to eat here and recommend it as well.

Just go there. It's the best deal for great Italian food that you'll find. My husband and I have had a lot of Italian food over the years, but both our meals we're far tastier than any we've ever had. We were even able to compare to the exact meals we've had elsewhere. Their sauces are amazing. You're welcomed as... More

Yumm. You can't go wrong here. The specials are always great and the Sunday gravy is a must. Perfect evening. Sonya is a fabulous waitress and all the staff work as a team.
