This is the second time we have been at Vinny Vanucchi's in Dubuque and it was great just like it was the last time. We had a great time and our waiter was great.

My daugter and I dined there as we had a package deal from the Hampton Inn. We had a great time and the food was wonderful. It was a great mother/daughter weekend out and we will be back.

We enjoyed our meal very much. The spacing between the different courses was well timed. We didn't feel rushed, but we didnt have to wait too long between appetizer and the main course. I'm glad we had a reservation, we came about 6:00pm and it got really busy while we were there. My only knock is that when they were busy the waitress didn't make it to our table to check on drinks. She finally brought a pitcher of water with our main course. I'm being somewhat picky because there wasnt really anything of significance to complain about. We will definately go back.

The building is the view, handicap assessable!, good service, fine dining.

worth a second trip
Well-worth a second 120-mile round trip (we're working our way through the house specialties), but I wonder if the loud Italian tenor background(?) music is really necessary for the already great ambiance of the place.

Amazing food. I have visited the restaurant numerous times and have always had decent service and great food for a reasonable price considering how much food comes on a plate!

The service was just wonderful for this 45th anniversary night. All went very well until someone in the kitchen burned a smelly load of bread. That really stunk up the restaurant.

We recently had a larger group dining at Vinny's. Our waitress was amazing and the food was delicious.

Wonderful Dinner at Vinny's
The ambiance was delightful - old world feel - Italian dining at it's best. The salad is excellent and the garlic bread DIVINE!! Refills are free....but save room for the excellent pasta dishes. So many to choose from. I have tried many over the years and never found one I did not like. My personal favorite -- Dee Dee's Tortellini! I try not to order it every time...but it's hard not to! My husband's personal favorite - Lulu's Lasagna! Don't miss this Dubuque gem!! This evening was a work dinner party with out-of-town guests -- they all loved it. Great time with superb service!!

We arrived early for our reservations and they were able to seat us. The bartender was very friendly and sociable while we had a short wait to be seated.

Everyone was pleased
Celebrated our son's graduation at Vinny Vanucchi's. The food, service and atmosphere were excellent. Out of town guests were very pleased and have requested that we eat there again when they come back for another visit.

My wife and I went to Vinny Vanucchi's in Dubuque for our wedding anniversary. Since we made a reservation, we were able to get a table as soon as we checked in. The menu is well organized and there is also a gluten free menu. The food was great, the atmosphere was nice and everything was reasonably priced.

I love this place just because of the old neighbourhood feel of the building and the old family pictures. Good variety on the menu and service was good and friendly. I had the pasta ala Bunny. It had seafood such a shrimp, scallops and artificial crab. It was good. It would have been better with real crab and if the shrimp were cooked a little less. The flavour of the oil was good. My husband had carbonara and said it was good

We could not have enjoyed our dining experience more. This restaurant has it all from decor, to service, to food ... All excellent. Had a very enjoyable evening ... great service, great food and a fun atmosphere. If you're in Dubuque, you must try this place!

Good experience all around
I was part of a party of three dining at Vinnyson a Saturday evening at 5:45PM. Service was very good with virtually no wait for our food and beverages. The waiter was attentive to our needs without being summoned. I ordered a veal dish and it was delicious as we're the pasta dishes ordered by the rest of my party. The atmosphere is great and Iwill return again to Vinnys.

Loved our meals, if you are looking for home style country cooking of Italy this is the place. Great service and a nice wine selection all with reasonable prices. Don't pass up Vinny Vanucchi's.

Greta place. We are from Milwaukee, but every time we are in Dubuque we go to Vinny's. Took friends and they loved it as well.

Solid southern Italian restaurant
This is a very good traditional southern Italian Restaurant. Very tasty marina sauce. Good service. Reasonable prices.

Vinnie's made my husband and I nostalgic for the Italian trattorias of old. It had great ambiance and the throw back of the red and white checkered tablecloths only added to its rustic italian atmosphere.I had requested a gluten free menu on line and it was there waiting for me when I sat down. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. The food.. In a word "sublime"! No wonder Vinnie's is a great asset to Dubuques historic downtown. It made an anniversary dinner a memorable one. We will be back!

Fun Restaurant, Good Food
We have been to this restaurant two times and food was very good both times. It is in downtown Dubuque and is in a very old building that was renovated and is very cool! Salad and bread are to die for! They also have a location in Galena IL. Server was very busy, seemed to have too many tables to really take care of any one table well, other than that a very good experience. Enjoy!

Very nice spot!
Relaxed, rustic atmosphere. Huge menu. We look forward to returning to try other dishes the next time we're visiting Dubuque. Reasonable prices for large servings.

Great Italian food at moderate
Great Italian food at moderate price with quaint/rustic Italian atmosphere. Perfect for taking out of town guests or for a special night out. Great food with a wide selection.

Great place for italian!
We shared a meal based on past reviews since we were traveling & couldn't keep the leftoves. It was the perfect amount and well worth the $5.95 plate charge for the delicious salad & bread. Loved the salad & dressing. The bread was extra tasty. Would definitively return when we are in the area. The on-line reservations worked great!

Our waiter was young and honestly do not think he was well trained. When asked about the Sunday family dinners, he was not sure . In fact the host did not know and was confused too.
