Last night was our 31st anniversary and I knew the place to go was our Italian restaurant .....
Vinnie's !!! Upon entering the restaurant, we were greeted and congratulated by the entire staff. Then came a tour of Italy .... we started with chabata bread & olive oil, followed by their
"Garbage Salad". Next came an order of fried mozarella, which was followed by our entree ....
Seafood Pescatore". We finished up with dessert, cheese cake and a cappacino for my wife, and a cannoli & Di Sarrano for me. The chef, Josh was attentive and prepared every dish like
it was on television......it looked too good to eat......but that didn't stop us from enjoying everything! Orur server, David Jones, was extremely attentive, saying how great it was, over and over, about us being married for 31 years! He was charming an an excellent server.
Overall, once again, I can't say enough about one of the finest restaurants in Asheville ....
Vinnie's Neighborhood Italian ! Eric, the owner can be very proud of his incredible staff and food!!! We love you guys !!!

We stopped at Vinnie's last summer after a long day in the NC mountains and were surprised and greatly pleased by how good our food was. We returned this past weekend. First of all, with regard to staff: A plus. We were advised the wait for a table was 15 minutes and it was and sitting in the bar area was a pleasure with the wonderful service and personalities of Jessica and Josh. Food: Uneven. Appetizer: Calamari with peppers was some of the best calamari we have had. Bread: very good. Main courses: I always enjoy salmon and chose the fall special with gnocchi. The gnocchi was great, the salmon was absolutely tasteless- almost as if it had been washed off and then over cooked? The ravioli: delicious as was the spaghetti and meatballs. Veal parmesan: nothing special- average. Server: Allison- great. Again while the staff was great, there did not seem to be anyone in charge or overseeing the dinning area to solicit or receive feedback or provide help. Undecided if we will return, although I would like to gamble on a best 2 out of 3?

We played a show in WInston Salem and were on our way back to Nashville,TN. Being on the road all of the time, we are very picky about food!!!!! When we order we normally take forever, just hoping we dont make a mistake and regret it for the next several hours on the road until our next meal. On Saturday I was in the mood for pizza/italian. I googled best pizza in Asheville,NC. Many many great things came up about Vinnie's. We decided to go and we are SOOOOO happy we did. The homemade mozarella sticks are the best I have ever ate. The marinara was impeccable. The "meat" pizza was marvelous, I added mushrooms to my side :)-. The entire staff greeted us when we arrived and when we left. The owner came by our table when dinner was finished and chatted with us. Everything about this place screamed " hard work". It was nice to go somewhere that was not a franchise for once in awhile. WE will be back again on our next trip through Asheville!!! P.S. The owner gave us a bottle of Marinara.. Thank you Vinnie's for giving us something to brag about in Nashville. - See you soon, Starving Musicians.

Went to see the Biltmore and stayed the night just outside of the city. Had no idea where to eat dinner, but knew that Asheville is known for being a great foodie town. We were in the mood for Italian and stumbled on Vinnie's. The parking lot was full when we arrived (around 7:00). My husband said, 'well it looks like you picked a good place'. Boy was he right! We waited about a half hour at the small but friendly bar (staff & locals). The food was very good. Portions were good size and very tasty. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The owner was in the restaurant checking with everyone to make sure everything was alright. We loved the place and will go back the next time we are in Asheville.
