Reviewed November 30, 2012

Ask for waiter Tyler. The food is excellent. The atmosphere intimate. Great drinks and salad.

Well worth the visit. Average diner is under $20

“Mediocre”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

I have been to the Vinny's in Galena and did not have a good experience. At least at the Dubuque location the customer service is a lot better. The food is average Italian at best. Go at lunchtime when the prices are lower if you are trying for the first time. My family enjoys the unlimited garlic bread and salad.

“Love their meatball sandwich!”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

The best meatball sandwich in the area, IMHO. This place has a neat ambiance, large bar area with some seating and then the main part of the restaurant. Service has always been good, prices are fair....on Sundays they do a family style dining menu.

“ONCE was excellent”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

We live in town and love Italian food. We WERE very happy when Vinny's opened in Dubuque. We've noticed that the service was increasingly poor over the last several times that we've been there for either lunch or dinner. This past week was my wife's birthday and she wanted to go to Vinny's to celebrate. It was a weeknight and they couldn't have had 10 tables to service. As near as I could tell, our waitress had 3 tables -- one with 2 men nearly finished, another with about 8 or so who were just getting ready to order and my family. We WAITED for over 20 minutes (actually timed on my watch) and only had the waitress stop by to drop off water and then say that she'd be "right back". We got up and walked out -- went to Olive Garden and actually had great service. Vinny's was REALLY disappointing. I've talked to several others who used to frequent them and have heard their experiences to be similar. So, if you've got incredible patience for bad service but good food, I recommend Vinny's in Dubuque. Otherwise, drive the extra 15 minutes and go to Vinny's in Galena -- they still remember the value of customer service. What an incredible waste!
