Vinizza reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Good lunch

    I had the daily salad, hr8 combination but a bit to much oil. The meatballs are GR8 & nicely presented, I would however recommend they be served with a dish not only the mini skillet. The 12" pizza was slightly over sauced, but the sauce & crust are perfect, however @ $18 for a pizza with two slices of cheese & two basil leaf's is over priced for lunch. The heat level of the pepper oil is perfect. Gr8 Tiramisu & of coarse Italian coffee...

    We have been going to this restaurant over the past 4-5 years. Initially, our experiences were excellent. However, while the service remains strong, as well as the general ambience and decor of the restaurant, the menu and quality have increasingly become inconsistent or, as in our most recent experience, poor. The menu in particular seems to have undergone a number of revisions which has resulted in much less choice and less tasty dishes. Last, the final $$$ bill was very expensive. So, overall, a very disappointing experience which is difficult to recommend to others. All of that said, the staff are exceptionally pleasant, attentive and helpful. A pity, as Vinizza was one of our top choices for restaurants only a year ago.

    It's one of my favorite italian restaurants. Delicious! Good quality food ! Great wine list for any palate! Atmosphere is lively, service is fast and friendly ! Vinizza is serving solid simple Italian food, highlighting their handmade pastas and wood-fired pizzas. The prices are reasonable for the quality and freshness of the food served at this restaurant. As stated on their menu and website, with each main course served, Vinizza makes a donation to Accueil Bonneau – which helps feed a person in need.

    We had a very nice dining experience. The staff is very friendly and the service was impeccable. The food was tasty, well presented and the portions were reasonable, though not generous (except for the appetizer which we shared). On the downside the restaurant was a bit empty for a Wednesday night.

    the food was good, but they WILL NOT entertain special requests. So definitely a no go , if you have restrictions, allergies. Everything is pre-prepared. Not sure, if "no special requests" comes from the chef or just the serving staff. I wouldnt go back.

    Used to be consistent and good pizza.i don't know what is happening but We will think twice about going back. The pizza was definitely not up to par. The pizza we ordered was supposed to have sliced tomatoes and was instead served with a tomato sauce instead. No explanation as why. The fish of the evening was a grilled filet of sea bass with grilled peppers and vegetables. The. Fish was overlooked and dry and the grilled peppers was actually a quarter of a piece of pepper. The service was also very, very long. We are a group that practically go every Sunday night for pizza and was very disappointed as we're our friends. Too bad.

    I have been to that restaurant probably five times in the last year or so; food is always good to very good; the pizza is excellent; service is very good. The wine list is extensive and prices range from reasonnable to expensive. If you enjoy food and wine, just go and enjoy. The noise level can be very high, in fact, one has to speak very loudly to be understood. It is a good thing that there is no loud music on top of all that talking. One last thing, it might get expensive, if you enjoy and apperitf, good wine, apetizer, main course and dessert, the bill might be around 165$ with tax and service. Conclusion : if you enjoy good food, you will be pleased!

    Sitting on the terrace gives a quiet moment, except maybe for the lifts and trucks going around the terrace with a close view on the Jean-Talon market after business hours. Food is excellent and service greatly appreciated. Great spot in the neighborhood. A bit pricy but wine selection is remarquable!

    Although I rated the different categories well, the overall experience was only fair as it is not very often I leave a restaurant still feeling hungry. The portion sizes, especially for the pasta dishes are laughable. I understand you have to pay for quality, but when you order a main plate of ravioli and there maybe 6 pieces sitting in front of you, it's a joke. Quality, service, ambiance all very good but if you're hungry don't eat here. They think their menu is better than what it really is, if it wasn't for everything else I would have given a poor.
