Checked in to out hotel around 8. Looking for someplace to grab a bite nearby and that almost always winds up disappointing. Not this time. Even without a reservation luck shined down upon us and there was one table left in the bar. Our server, Becky was a delight. Prompt, polite, and professional she was a pleasure to work with....

Coming from New York, we basically don't even eat at Italian restaurants here, but we would go back to Vinny's again. The appetizers were good, the pizza wasn't bad, and we had a ravioli dish that was very good

Went with spouse after a glowing recommendation. Place was about half full at six on a Saturday night. Dining room is cavernous and loud, I mean loud. Salads and artichoke appetizer was delicious. Salmon entree good but not great. Chicken Parm with panko breadcrumbs was also good. Tiramisu was just ok. Second cup of coffee was cold. Service was great,... More

A business dinner in this location was as great experience. The interior and surroundings are a little above other places seen in this neighborhood. The menu seemed primarily Italian inspired but also had some interesting selections of fish. Had the Clam-chowder as an entree and it was delicious. Great taste and texture without being to much. The Milk braised pork... More

Excellent experience. I've been dining here for mang years, way before Windward was developed as it is these days. It has maintained excellence through the years. Great treat anytime.

More than the food. The service provided by this Gentleman made our day. We went there to celebrate our 12th Anniversary and this Gentleman we can say without any expectation the service he provided was unbelievable. Not only to us but the service he was providing to others with a smile on his face at this age was completely awesome.... More

First time for us at this offering from the Vinny group. Simple menu with emphasis on what is called California Italian. It is predictable but well made and presented. Portions are large. Dining room resembles a winery tasting room - all brick and stone so the noise level goes up with no more than 20 people in the room. Not... More

Had the opportunity to dine at Vinny's on a Friday evening in November. It was our first time so we didn't know what to expect. Sure the price is high, but its not ordinary Italian. The menu is very diverse, you can find anything you want here. The shrimp and scallop risotto is outstanding! Vinny's wine selection is exactly what... More

The building has a nice rustic feel to it. We went before the dinner rush and service was pretty good. The food is wonderful. I had the chicken parm and the pear arugula salad is so good!
