My wife and i happened to be on the Dubuque side for dinner and we stopped at Vinny's. We have eaten here before and it's always a great meal. Stop by if you are looking for some great Italian food.

The food was superb, the atmosphere was comfortable, and the service was top notch. Our server, David, really did a great job. We couldn't have asked for more and are looking forward to our next visit.
