Hubby and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary and we stumbled across Vinnie's when the wait at Grove Park was too long. So glad we did stop, the food was delicious and the restaurant had that old school feeling. Service was great.

I don't recall a separate room but the back area can be used for large parties. I've been there when a party was going on and there was no problem. I'd ask them how they'd handle it.
