It was Sunday and it was busy. We had reservations at 7:00 and waited 15 minutes for our table. The hostess was absent from the front most of the time, since she was clearing tables. We were seated and it took forever to get greeted by our waitress. Good thing we were not in any hurry. Given the length of... More

If this isn't the top rated restaurant on the island it should be, everyone from the water girl to the owner seems like they want to be there. The food and attention to detail is beyond question, if you try nothing else order the Cioppino (Italian seafood stew), the Caprese salad was sourced from island grow heirloom tomatoes, does it...

The food was good, they were a little too quick on bringing our food. We were served our drinks and our salads arrived immediately after. We were into our salads about two bites and our entrees arrived. Our server was efficient but not real warm and fuzzy, a little impatient .

Great dinner place and good food. The staff seated our group of 7 rather quickly at a nice "bar table". Everyone enjoyed the food and wine.

Excellent Italian food at a reasonable price. The menu is a little limited but has very good variety and everyone should find something they will find pleasing to the palate. The staff is very accommodating and well versed in the menu as well as the beverage list. One thing that I found odd is the beer is served in cans... More

Absolutely the best of everything! We were extremely well taken care of. Food was excellent and service was above and beyond. We walked in without a reservation on a Saturday night and had to sit at a little bar area. Couldn't have been any better. I couldn't rate, and recommend, it enough to everyone.

I've been to Vinny's once before on another trip and it did not disappoint this time, either. Food was really good, service was attentive and good, and the whole staff was very friendly.

Food is high quality and great wines. Highly recommend for couples and and friends. Went with family first night on island and was a little out of place with kids. Not bad...just not a great place for kids and teens in our opinion. Portions on the small size. Staff pleasant.
