Vinny’s is a great setting for a date night or a family dinner. The service is great, the menu is plentiful with great options from pasta to pizza. I am a huge pizza fan so I can tell you that the margarita pizza is perfection....More

We had my Godson’s graduation dinner here. This place is laid back but not slow. The staff was kind and attentive. The thin pizza was very good. Everyone else liked their meals. If you want a straight forward simple Italian meal chose this place.

My friend took me here bragging about their garlic bread. But then she was disappointed it wasn’t hot and fresh. The food was good. Service as expected. The building is really nice. Great atmosphere!
