We arrived at 8:30 p.m. just before closing and Becky (the owner) greeted us and made sure we had a great meal at her restaurant. I had a Casear Salad and Eggplant Parmigiana. The food was delicious and service was excellent. Thank you Becky!

My idea of a typical American diner. They even have a drive through. Food looked ok, no frills, cheap and cheerful. Staff were really welcoming and friendly.

Not sure who is making the food in the kitchen, but I’m pretty certain Giada would not be pleased. I was sorely disappointed given the price point and the service was poor. It felt like they weren’t very happy to see us.

My parents and I visited Vinny's to celebrate my birthday dinner, and the food was absolutely amazing! My spaghetti with meat sauce and meatballs was perfect, the cocktails were scrumptious, and I had a wonderfully decadent brownie with coffee ice cream dessert. Both of my...More

It began when we got to the restaurant having made reservations for 6 pm. The owner said she had us down for 7 pm. But they did have tables, so no harm, no foul. The waitress took our order and did not write anything down....More

We had to wait a bit before we were noticed; then told--by the owner, I believe--that she would be right with us. Peeked around the corner and she was chatting with some women who appeared to be friends of hers. After we were seated, all...More
