Went with a group of 25 service was great and friendly staff. We eat family style, 3 different options and plenty for everyone to eat. The lasagna was very pasty lots of sauce and the chicken cacciatore was also very good.

The service was good, attentive server. Food was good, not fabulous. Garlic bread and starter salad were very good but pasta was a little lack luster. But nice restaurant, good ambience. Tip: Don't sit next to the door when it's cold, lots of cold breezes...More

It was my second time there and I really liked it. I recommend the veal parmigiana. I also had the famous garlic bread and the salad. Was really good and I like the ambiance like within little Italy. Free parking.

Just a half block from the Hotel Julien, a treasure in itself, Vinny's offers an excellent Italian menu at fair prices. This is an off-shoot from the original, located in Galena, IL. The exposed brick walls and wood floors add to the atmosphere.

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.
