Just driving by we saw the sign for Vinnie's and decided to give it a try…a great decision! Even at just 5 PM the parking lot was filling and when we got out of our car and heard the music we knew we'd made a great find. Dean Martin & Frank Sinatra crooning the night away as we were served a great Chianti and enormous portions of the delicious entrée choices we'd made. Our server, Rachel, was helpful as we made our selections and was perfectly attentive without being a bother. The Tiramisu was fabulous and so was the coffee…a local variety found at the Bean Werks. The prices were reasonable…amazing given the size of the plates! The owner stopped by to check on our experience and I noticed he was greeting his regular patrons…just a nice evening all around created by really delicious food and caring, friendly staff! Did I mention the Fabulous music by Dean & Frank!! We'll be back next time we're in Asheville!

The first thing we noticed, as we entered the restaurant, was that the loyal clientele recognized that were not regulars. They started telling us how great a treat we were about to experience. They were correct. The atmosphere was not sophisticated. The building and furnishings were not new. But those were not the reasons we chose Vinnie's.

The variety in the menu is good. The wait staff is excellent. The response of the kitchen is very good. The Chicken Marsala with Penne Pasta and Eggplant was superb. The prices were very reasonable. The meal was a great experience.

We have learned to seek out the businesses frequented by the citizens of the community. The guests were on a first name basis with the staff. Vinnie, himself visited tables and ensured guests' expectations were being met.

If Italian fare tickles your taste, enjoy Vinnie's Neighborhood Italian Restaurant when you next visit Asheville.

Vinnie's is some of the best Italian food I've ever had. The prices are reasonable and the service friendly. I would definitely eat there again and would recommend it to others.

From the moment someone says, "Welcome to Vinnie's!", the great service begins, but it is more than matched by the very large and delicious food!! Were tipped off by a local about Vinnie's and were definitely not disappointed. The portions are large and the taste well above the national Italian chains!! We went back a second time during our visit because we enjoyed it so much and the price was very fair!

This little gem is well worth a visit! The staff is friendly and attentive and the food is some of the best we've had. We ordered the veal parm and linguini with shrimp in a white wine butter sauce. Fresh Bread is offered and is served with olive oil for dipping. Get there early.....seems to fill up pretty quickly.
