Always a Hit
Vinny's has always been a favorite of mine for good food at a reasonable price. It also serves as a good place to take co-workers and clients when you want to impress.

Food was excellent. We had the rack of lamb which was cooked perfectly as was the ribeye. The cod was mouthwatering. All the sides which came with the meals were perfectly matched. Very impressive! The ambiance was outstanding. The only issue was the noise level. It might have to do with the high ceilings. We ail definitley come back!

The best scallops we've had in a long time. My grandmother is from Naples, Italy, and the tiramisu was as fantastic as hers. We'll definitely be back. Alpharetta is blessed to have Vinny's.

Wife and I had an enjoyable evening at Vinny's. We each had the Carpaccio to start, which was excellent. Wife had the filet and I had the rack of lamb. Both were cooked to perfection. We really enjoyed the service. Her wine suggestion was perfect . We had the Tiramisu and the creme brulee for dessert which was also very good. Overall a very good dining experience.

Good setting for a group
We had a group business dinner at Vinny's and the atmosphere, food and overall service was very good. I would recommend Vinny's for a small to medium group dinner.

Over all good. Need a dress
Over all good. Need a dress code...shorts and flip-flop shoes should not be allowed at a nice restaurant.
those who wish to ware such attire should sit outside, in the peasant seating.

The food was excellent. I have several food allergies so the server made sure my food was prepared correctly.

The food was good. Service
The food was good. Service was cool. It was quiet for lunch, so you were able to have a good conversation without having to talk over loud noise.

Went for my 21st birthday and they sent out a dessert sampler that said "Happy 21st Birthday"
Our waiter was very knowledgable and friendly.
I would highly recommend this restaurant!

We have passed this place for years and finally went on a Sunday at 5. The place was lovely, but almost empty - great for us as we could hear each other - which is often a problem in other places. Our food was great - loved my pizza. Will surely go back again.

Vinny's is one of our favorite restaurants! The food is always fantastic, especially the salads and crab cakes. The service is impeccable and dinner always results in a very enjoyable evening.

Everything was excellent - My 2 business associates form out of town (Chicago - Not unknown for it's 5-Star restaurants) were very pleased and impressed with the overall experience.
The waiter was absolutely great in every way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cindi our server and Michelle the bartender gal are great people to interact with. They made our meal so pleasant and fun. We enjoyed every minute. Especially noted is that Cindi mentioned a special that they had the night before which was a seafood and lobster dish with noodles. They didn't offer it the night we came but she went back and asked the chef if he could make it for me. She came back and said he would and when it was delivered it was outstanding in its fettucine sauce and cheese on top. Wow. How many other restaurants would do that for you? My wife had Haddock and it was marvellous as well. Hats off to Vinny's!!

Lunch with clients
Overall experience was very good. I have been there many time before and never disappointed. The chicken scallopine was just what the doctor ordered...will return soon.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food and world class service (our server Ms. Gabildi was outstandng).
The two ladies at the reception were amateurs to represent a good restaurant.....they need to be changed or trained to be more custo mer centric. Try to visit SEEDs at Marietta, then they will understand what I mean!

Great dining for any occasion
This was my second visit to VInny's. The dining room is nicely appointed with interesting artwork and beautiful tablescapes. Our waiter was very friendly and answered all of our questions about the menu. The food was excellent. From salad to dessert, the meal did not disappoint. I would highly recommend Vinny's on Windward to anyone wanting a fine dining experience for any occasion.

My second visit to Vinny's
My second visit to Vinny's didn't disappoint. I took a couple of customers there for lunch, and the service was just right. Attentive without being intrusive. And the food was excellent, same as my first visit. I will make Vinny's a regular habit when I visit the Alpharetta, GA area!
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ALWAYS love Vinnys!
Vinny's is a restaurant that you can count on for consistently great food, service, atmosphere. Can't say that about most of the other area restaurants. We are so pleased to have this restaurant nearby and we highly recommend!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Two of us have been here before but it has been a while. Just as we remembered --great place to have dinner and talk. No one rushed nor pushed you out when you were finished. The food choices (even though limited) were very interesting and not your normal italian choices. We all ordered different entrees and all were fantastic! You could taste the different flavors/foods used in the dishes! We all agreed we had a great meal and we would return!

Everyone was friendly from
Everyone was friendly from the time we hit the parking lot. We had just experienced a down pour and our valet guy acted like it was nothing. He was working alone and they were very busy but he was on top of things. We met friends at the bar for drinks and the bartender was quick and nice with great recommendations on the wine list. Our table was ready when it we ask for it and Chris our waiter was the best! Attentive but not over the top. I had not eaten there in about 15 years but I can tell you I will be back soon. The food was amazing! I had the salmon and wishing I had some right now, it was outstanding. My husband had the crab cakes and he said it was one of the best. Definitely a do over.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a wonderful waiter. We had a group of 7. Unfortunately, we had a long table so conversation was difficult. Food was good, although maybe a little pricey for the portion size. Terrific pomegranate martini.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a fun time. Good atmosphere, service and especially the food!
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love it at Vinny's
Hostess, waiter all were friendly. Waiter was informative( Elliot) and served beautifully. Food was excellent, better than Pricci or any other Buckhead restaurant. Noise level was impossibly loud; all surfaces , although attractive, are hard and nothing to soften the noise level. Will return and recommend. VG group does excellent job.

We had rack of lamb and the crab cakes...both fabulous.

The food was superb and the waiter was fantastic. Very engaging, but left you alone to dine while making sure everything was in order. The dishes were very tasty.

It was an experience! All food is homemade and you can tell. The food was marvelous and our service was exceptional. I will
definitely be going back to Vinny's. The BEST Italian food in Alpharetta!

Their Fall special, the red
Their Fall special, the red grouper over a butternut squash, was so incredibly delicious that I had to dine there twice in 3 days...for the same special dish! :-)

Top notch food and service
My wife and I chose Vinnys for our 1 year anniversary. I made a note of the occasion on my reservation in hopes they would seat us in a private/romantic area of the restaurant. When we arrived the hostess welcomed us and congratulated us. The service and food were phenomenal with large portions. When we completed our dinner the server brought out a complimentary dessert platter with an assortment of pastries and fruits with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate on the plate. Our entire experience was top notch!

Fun casual Italian
In town for a night. My wife and I read the OpenTable reviews and decided to give Vinny's a try. We had a delicious dinner. Vinny's has a great menu selection as well as a nice wine list. Fun casual atmosphere and friendly service. Our waitress seemed a little overwhelmed with tables in the beginning as it took a little time to order but she was quick to deliver drinks and bread. Appears to be a local favorite. You see everything from families to young professionals. Nice bar with a couple of TVs on with both football and baseball games on for those interested. We will be back in January and look forward to eating here again.

Food and service was outstanding as usual. Thanks for great dinner.

We have been dining at Vinny's for many years. As always we enjoyed our dinner at Vinny's and all of their restaurant. We were seated promptly. The food was wonderful the service was great. Everything arrived in a timely fashion. And we had an exception waiter, Elliot.

Very relaxing dinner with good atmosphere, great food (trout) and service. Reasonably priced also.

Great anniversary spot!
The ambiance was great for an anniversary dinner! The manager surprised us with a free, delicious dessert, which was a very nice touch!
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great team outing
We visited this location with a group of global attendees. Everyone loved the food and wine.
10/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food in general, also short but nice wine list!
Someone was distracted in the kitchen and sent us one meat overcooked, but they promptly took care of that... so overall, excellent experience.
Our waitress was great. She even paid attention to the fact that we had 'something going on' and guessed it was a birthday or something... it was in fact our anniversary. She was really nice about it. She was excellent overall.

GREAT Italian in Alpharetta!
Recently dined here with my husband and parents. The restaurant is in an all-brick building with a large room and two small seating areas off to the sides. The brick and layout make for a pretty loud noise level. It didn't bother me but I think my dad (who's hard of hearing) had some trouble. It seems that their 'Italian' dishes are their specialty. I had the tortolloni and my husband had the gnocchi--both were spectacular. My parents both had seafood dishes and said they were good but not great. I would definitely go back.

Excellent business spot
This was my first visit to Vinny's. It proved to be a great choice for a business meeting. The service, food and ambience were excellent.

Food and service is always fantastic at Vinny's. The only detractor was the noise level.

My wife's favorite b-day restaurant
My wife and I have been here for a few occasions and it has never dissapointed. The staff are friendly. The food is great! And the laws have recently changed so buy a bottle of wine and you can take what you don't drink home with you.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Cindi was our server and did a great job. While my wife had a great filet that was very tender, I had the chicken scaloppine w spinach and cheese ravioli that was outstanding. Of course Michelle in the bar served up some great wine. We had a fun time.

I have dined at Vinny's on
I have dined at Vinny's on several occasions. Most recently, early December 2013, the food was better than I remember, but the service was sub-par. We had the Antipasto and Veal Scaloppini. Both dishes were superior. Vinny must have excellent sources for salami and prosciutto. These, along with the olives and thin toasted flatbread make for a primo starter. while I understand that veal is not politically correct, I occasionally give in to my inner carnivore and order it. Vinny serves the veal in a delicious sauce with potato gnocchi
As to the service: Chosen wine turned out to be unavailable and main dish was served without providing us our starter. What?? The place was busy, but these are lapses-- not up to Vinny's standards.
