Mid Day Fine DiningThis spot was great for our special group farewell to a co-worker/lunch outing....the occasion was special and the feel of the restaurant complimented our mood to a tee!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day at Vinny's on WinwardCelebrated Mother's day with a fantastic lunch on Sunday. Food & service were outstanding! The rack of lamb is "to die for"!!!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved ItWent to Vinny's for Mother's Day Brunch, Food was wonderful and service was excellent, will be back as soon as possible5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceHad a great Mother's Vinny's. The food was excellent. Service was prompt and attentive. Overall, a wonderful experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Mother's Day BrunchI took our family there this Mother's Day for brunch including two Grandmothers and it was great. Other than the mandatory valet parking (I'm not a fan of valet parking) I thought everything was awesome. Only other thing to be aware of is they have concrete floors so it can get loud in the evening for dinners - not the best place when it gets crowded and you need to talk across the table. That was not an issue over brunch at all but we have had that experience here for dinner in the past.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as always!As semi-frequent diners at Vinny's, we have come to expect excellent service and melt-in-your-mouth food, and we are never disappointed! Our server recognized us, and she and the hostess both wished us a happy anniversary. Truly a wonderful end to spend our special day!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMthree times and never a bad mealGreat food, great service. Crab cakes are amazing. Love the decor.

We were a large group and everyone enjoyed their meals. We had several international attendees who had a wonderful time.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWhy did we wait so long to go here?I've been driving by it for years. A friend recommended Vinny's to my wife and I'm glad she did. Elliot took fabulous care of us. Solid meal from start to finish, enough on the menu to please anyone I would think.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous as usual!As usual...I have nothing but good things to say about Vinny's on Windward!!! The food is great and the service is just as good! I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for a social gatheringPerfect for a social gathering or business meeting!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMVinny's never disappointsVinny's never disappoints for lunch or dinner! The service is always excellent as is the food.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a very nice restaurantThis is a very nice restaurant standing out amongst the chain joints on Windward Parkway. The menu is not huge but provides great variety supplemented by tempting specials. This was an excellent locale for a business lunch with ample lighting and medium noise levels. Everyone in our group of six enjoyed their dishes from bread to salad and soup to the entrees. The service stood out exceptionally.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Find in AlpharettaMy daughter and I had an excellent meal here, and the service was very attentive. We will definitely return to Vinny's.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA consistent favoriteThe food is always great here. We've lived here nearly 10 years and have never had a bad meal. The antipasto and the cheese plate are both right on (though we did notice more bread/toast points with both than in the past). The crab cakes are a must have. New menu with Italian headings for each offering can be a little challenging, even if you are familiar with the menu, but the ambiance is great and the service, for the most part, is spot on.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Find in AlpharettaMy daughter and I had an excellent meal here, and the service was very attentive. We will definitely return to Vinny's.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI enjoyed my first visit toI enjoyed my first visit to Vinny's on Windward! The waitstaff was attentive, but not intrusive. They food was outstanding - an off-menu suggestion by my server was the excellent! I will definitely return if I'm ever in the area and have an opportunity.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMy sons and I dined at Vinny'sMy sons and I dined at Vinny's on Easter.The food was great and the service was very good. They were very busy, so it took a long time to get our entrees. Someone did come by to apologize for that which helped. I would have given them 5 stars, but I have 2 complaints. First, we love bread. I even ordered a bread basket, but it was all sweet. I asked for some plain bread, was told they had none. I can't imagine a restaurant that doesn't have bread! My second complaint was mandatory valet.All the parking spaces surround the restaurant so it gripes me to have to pay a valet to avoid walking 3 steps so the restaurant can make more money. Not cool!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for Easter Brunch . AboutWent for Easter Brunch . About 20th time at Vinny's first for brunch . Will go back but not for bruch . Menu ok but not great , not a lot of brunch items . Did not serve their usual excellent bread but instead sold a basket of muffins for $5 . Food excellent just better value at night or regular lunch3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time there was a greatFirst time there was a great visit. Food was outstanding and the service outstanding. Took my wife there for her birthday and will definitely be back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic, add on a crabcake.The entire dinner was fantastic.
The service was great, unfortunately I forgot our server's name, but she was a perfect balance of seeing to our needs and staying out of the way. The food was excellent, add some crabcakes, I don't even like crabcakes and they were incredible. We enjoyed the wine we chose but neither of us are knowledgeable in that area. Expensive but I felt the price was a good value for the service and food we received. This is definitely a place we will enjoy celebrating at for years to come.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding, from-scratch ItalianIt took us a year to get back to Vinny's since we live 100 miles away. Our first visit was wonderful, and we were not disappointed this trip. Service is attentive, and we received a great wine recommendation from our waitress. The place was super busy, but the atmosphere was pleasant and the kitchen was not slowed. Food is outstanding: homemade pasta anchoring perfectly seasoned Italian comfort food. Hope our travels take us back again soon.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this place!!!I love this place!!! I can't get enough Italian food!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a very pleasant experienceWe had a very pleasant experience at Vinny's at Windward.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and Service!I was catching up with an old business associate for dinner, and I did have to speak slightly louder than normal in order for him to hear what I was saying. There was a lot of background noise. That being said, if I were there with my girlfriends, we would have been creating the noise as well. The food is wonderful, and I really liked the service. I would absolutely go back.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food...Excellent service!!!I love this place!!! Great food...Excellent service...I would recommend this spot to anyone that loves Italian food as much as I do!3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent choice in AlpharettaWe always greatly enjoy both the food and service at Vinny's. I would dine here just for their simple arugula salad with parmesan and lemon vinaigrette, but the meal always gets even better from there. You can also count on excellent service (though in all honestly sometimes it can be just a notch too familiar). When the restaurant is full it is quite noisy, but you find that almost everywhere today. There are those who will say there is more authentic Italian elsewhere, and that may be true, but Vinny's always is a great experience. For those of us who live north, there is a lot to be said for a drive of 5 miles rather than 25. Highly recommended.3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a pleasant experienceWe always enjoy Vinny's very much. I would go just for the arugula salad, but every entree I have chosen also has been very good to excellent. The service is always friendly (occasionally just slightly over-friendly) and the prices are very reasonable for the quality. The room is warm and inviting, though it can get a bit loud at peak hours.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLinda CouchWe had a wonderful Valentines Dinner hear. It was extremely crowded so we felt like we were sitting with the couple next to us - but we expected it to be busy. The food was excellent, the chicken Marsala was the perfect amount and very tasty. We'll definitely go back here again, perhaps on a regular night and I'm sure this will become a regular dining spot for us now.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
