“Mother's day dinner”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2012

7:00 PM and the place was not full. Service was real slow went we got there. We had to wait almost ten minutes for a glass of water. The waitress was in a hurry to take our order,. Didn't even wait to ask if we wanted a drink before or if we wanted wine with our meal. I had to keep her from leaving the table to complete our order. While we were just starting our drink, she brought our salad. We had just begun our salad and they brought the main course, The table was full of plates. She opened the bottle of wine in a hurry and ran away. She didn't inquire if our meal was to our liking at all. On the whole three different waitresses served us that evening and none of them knew what the others were doing. At some point, when we were almost finished with our dinner and our original waitress came by to ask us if we had eaten yet!!!!! All in all the service was lousy. The place is nice, the food is OK (no more). but we won't go back to Vinny Gambiny's that's for sure. I suspect the manager hires inexperienced waitresses in order to pay them less since none of them seemed to really know what they were doing.

“Chainy Italian food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2012

Went with some co-workers when I was in town. Service was solid, was clean and bright and the food was better than I expected (really, I was expecting awful and it was better than just ok).
Highlight was when I asked for an espresso and the server explained what it was. Yes, I know, that's why I was ordering it!
