Jody was the best waitress you could ask for. She was timely with the food, allowed for two tables to merge together halfway through the meal, and was very pleasant all throughout.

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.
