We had a group of 11 people come in during the snow storm and we were STARVING. Told there would be a long wait and hostess brought us bread/oil to snack on while we waited. Luckily, they were able to accommodate us within 30 minutes....More

We loved visiting Vinnie's and the family style dinner. The food was hearty and we loved the variety of dishes we received.

Fun nostalgic restaurant with very good Italian food and wine. Fun atmosphere with hundreds of nostalgic photos of old time movie stars. Food and service were excellent with very reasonable prices. A must do if you are in the mood for Italian.

Food and service is truly great. Staff makes you feel like family when you enter. Service can be a bit slow, but it is worth it. Servers are super busy but they manage to keep everything under control. Definitely worth going. Casual and informal atmosphere....More

Was in town for a training and searched for Italian food. Vinnie's did not disappoint. Great food, perfect atmosphere, and try the garlic knots! I will definitely return when back in Asheville!
