We enjoyed dinner on New Year's Eve. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the views of the harbor were stunning.

This was right across the street from our hotel and I was pretty excited about trying it based upon the reviews. Sadly, I will be sticking with my previous stance on never going to Italian restaurants outside of Italy. We came without reservations but a seat was found. There was a bit of confusion as the hostess seemed to forget... More

I was solo for Christmas so headed to San Juan Island. So I tried some restaurants that I have not either tried or it had been a real long time. So I booked into Vinny's and it did not disappoint. I started with a nice glass of Chianti Caesar salad. For my main I order Chicken Scaloppini with angel hair... More

It was my first visit to this only fine dining Italian restaurant in the picturesque harbor town of Friday Harbor. We enjoyed dinner and wine on white table cloth's at a cozy corner table for four with holiday accented surroundings. Upon being seated, a special cocktail list was offered along with a varied food menu and extensive wine list for... More

Food was really very good. Service was quite good generally - certainly friendly but just with a tiny bit of confusion about getting dishes to the correct table. Warm cozy and relaxed atmosphere

We were more than pleased with our choice of restaurants. The service was exceptional even when we overstayed and found we were the only ones left in the restaurant. The servings are generous and innovative. The atmosphere is charming. We couldn't have asked for more.

A small, cozy restaurant with great Italian food and wine. You must try the calamari--best I've ever had.

We love the menu and the food quality of Vinny's. The staff are great. HOWEVER, I wish they would think again about the music that squawks over their speaker system. Louisiana blues or heavy metal really should not be part of the background. It is a lovely atmosphere, but if the "background" music is jarring, it is much less delightful.... More

the lasagna is very good here. We ordered it to take out, came with a small amount of vegies and 4 tiny little rolls. Not cheap, but delicious

During a recent stop in Friday Harbor between the USA and Vancouver Island, we decided to try Vinny's and we are so glad we did. Warm welcoming staff. A delicious selection of options on their menu. And a wine list with some great choices at reasonable prices which is always a plus. I had the veal Marsala and it was... More
