The delmonico caught our eyes. As expected, sensational. 6hr winr anf beer were exceptional and the service attentive and professional. A place to return to, with moderate prices.

We found this restaurant on trip advisor. Very nice ambience. My husband enjoyed his meal very much (hot marinara sauce with italian sausage.The appetizer was great, my meal was not very good (chicken park with alfredo sauce- very dry and bland) but perhaps it was just by chance. We will give them another try next time we are in the... More

We were a party of eight, big table out on the back deck and Emma was our waitress and she was awesome. We had endless salad and garlic bread. I had veal marsala, so good and lots of mushrooms all served over pasta. Everyone seemed to really enjoy their meal.

We were a group of 15 for a college graduation celebration dinner. They took our reservation well in advance. Also, they did a follow up to our reservation via phone call the day before which I thought was a professional touch. We arrived on time and our table was ready. The wait staff offered us drinks right away. There is... More

Dining at Vinny's is like stepping into a scene from the movie "The Godfather". A traditional Italian restaurant setting, resplendent with red and white checkerboard tablecloths, makes this restaurant a quaint and unique place to enjoy pasta and Italian cuisine. Decorated with obviously Italian "family photos" (well, somebody's family, at least), you feel like "one of the family" when you... More

My son ordered the chicken parmigian and it was very good. I ordered the chicken Marsala and it was mediocre. Sauce was just ok and there was no cheese on it (which I'm used to having.) My daughter ordered the fettuccine alfrefo and that also was mediocre. We wont rush to get back but it was a mildly pleasant experience.

The food was good. We had pasta dishes and they came with tasty salad (similar to Olive Garden Salad) and yummy, soft, addictive garlic bread. I also had the house made soup of the day (pasta fagioli). This meal was perfect for my husband and I who missed breakfast and needed a good hearty meal before driving to Chicago. The... More

We had a business lunch here for about 20 people and the food was very good. Meatballs were excellent. Not sure if they serve family style all the time or just because we had a big group, but it was a good experience. The alfredo sauce is fabulous.

Begin your meal with an outstanding endless salad and mouthwatering garlic bread. The main course has a variety of options with our favorite being the lasagna. It is in a charming building with lots of warmth. Or maybe some of that was caused by the wine.
