The absolute worst Italian meal of all time. I got ravioli and my husband got red sauce with Rigatoni. Bad sauce over cooked pasta. The worst.

What a wonderful find. After visiting the Biltmore on a cold and dreary day, we ventured forth to Vinnie's. What a wonderful discovery!!!! As soon as we walked in the door staff greeted us, and although the place was hopping (even on a Monday night) we were seated immediately and the wait staff appeared. Since it was Monday the special... More

Vinnie's was amazing! The food was excellent and the service was great. All of the employees were friendly and our server James was awesome. Hope to meet Vinnie soon.

Monday night special was great, the lobster ravioli, and also half off bottles of any wine. Also had the Penne ala Vodka, which was deliscious. Enjoyed the quaint, old-family style room and our waitress was very friendly and nice. Will definitely come back here!

After being exhausted from a day of outdoor activities the hunt for good food was on and Vinnie's was successfully discovered. The best part of the experience other than the food itself was they were able to deliver to the hotel. I would recommend the following to eat since everything was perfecting prepared: Cannolis Tiramisu Mozzarella Marinara Our Famous Garlic... More

Read that this was THE place to go for Italian and boy were they right! We had a party of 8 so we had to wait a long time (2 hours) but it was so worth it!!!! The staff was wonderful and even brought us appetizers for free because of our wait. The food was amazing and the garlic knots... More

My family chose Vinnie's after reading such terrific reviews on Trip Advisor. We were thrilled. Our waiter was so gracious and welcoming, he made our family of 12 feel right at home. The food was delicious! We LOVED the lobster pot pie, the chicken parmesan, the lamb, the ziti and the salmon. Hard to achieve, but there were no complaints,... More

I love that Vinnie's treats you like family and feels like home. It's a perfect place to take out of town friends because you get an exceptional meal, friendly waiters, plenty of time to catch up with old friends, and finish it off with delicious cheesecake for dessert! Vinnie's offers all the comforts of home, without having to do the... More

We love to dine in at Vinnie's because the atmosphere is comfortable and welcoming. We have also discovered that their food, as take out is just as good as dining in (except we don't have the friendly waiters and waitresses at home). You can even wait for your order at the bar and get one of their delicious cocktails with... More
