food is ok but I have had way better Italian food. I did not care for the wine list either. The server was fabulous and made the meal special.

We were traveling through Dubuque and stopped for lunch at Vinny's. The food was great and we enjoyed our stop. The service was so so, meaning it was adequate but not engaging. We will definitely stop here on our next trip through Dubuque.

My wife and I stopped here on a busy evening (U of D graduation) but the service was good. While it's hardly unique, I'm a sucker for old photos on the wall. We both had a delicious meal with some delicious salad and hot garlic...More

The hostess accused us about lying about a reservation we made but she “couldn’t find.” Waited over 20 minutes for table for 6 when we could see a table empty for 6. Finally sat us a bar and no one waited on us there. Said...More
