A group of 10 of us were looking for a good place for an Italian dinner, and Vinnys seemed to have the highest ratings, so that's where we went. We were delighted! Our server was AJ, and she was fun, funny, pleasant, efficient, everything you...More

Excellent marinara sauce, Sunday gravy and garlic knots. Servings are very large - 2 people can easily share an entree. Sauce sold in jars to take home.

Vinnie's is a must in Asheville. We always wait for a spot at the bar and dine there -- but be prepared to wait! The food is excellent and service friendly and professional. I like to pasta puttanesca and their mussels and calamari are delectable.

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.
