What quick service and EVERYONE on the staff checks on you, refills your drink, etc. Our server was great but it is wonderful to see an entire staff work so efficiently. We had garlic knots and meat pizza. Very good and so glad we found Vinnie's!

Best service in town and well worth the wait - twice baked lasagna and garlic knots were amazing. The atmosphere is upbeat

Better than average Italian; generous portions, and exceptionally friendly staff, even on the busiest of nights. The sauces are fresh but the cheese is average. Order the pasta "al dente" --otherwise it may be served soft. Staff and kitchen ready and willing to adjust entrees according to need. Great attitude.

My family and I have been dining with Eric and his crew for years! Birthdays, Wedding Anniversaries, Wednesdays....any excuse to go to Vinnie's. We have ate our way through the menu and have never had a bad dish. Great wine list and desserts.....the bar is a pleasant and entertaining place to sit while waiting. It is kid and family friendly... More

Do I love this place. Service, food, ambiance all top notch. Get there early as the restaurant is so popular with locals, you may have to wait but it's worth it. Service people are personable and funny. You'll feel at home.

The absolute worst Italian meal of all time. I got ravioli and my husband got red sauce with Rigatoni. Bad sauce over cooked pasta. The worst.
