Diner Reviews
  • "Ate on a monday. slow day but great ambiance and great food- definitely recommend."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "Really love Vinny's and should have stayed with my favorite dishes. Ordered the Snapper special and was very disappointed. The light sauce was placed on the skin of the fish (which I don't eat, so it removed the sauce). The fish was placed on a large glop of garlic, beet mashed potatoes of sticky, thick consistency. It stuck so that you could not taste the fish without a mix of the potatoes. The brussel sprouts were on the raw side of al dente, leaving them with a bitter flavor. I think a special should have extra attention to quality and flavor. This will not deter me from going to Vinny's. I really love the restaurant, this plate just fell very short of their standard."

  • "As usual Vinny's was fantastic - the food is always great, the service friendly and attentative! We celebrated 2 birthdays and a party of 7 and they made a beautiful dessert plate!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The portobello and sausage appetizer with fried goat cheese was delicious! Conversation was very difficult, though, due to a very high noise level, even after changing tables to be away from the center of the restaurant."

  • "I can never get enough of Vinny's! The food is excellent and the service is even better!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Food is great. Best dining location is the patio where you can carry on a conversation, especially appreciated as we were a table of five. Service staff members were pleasant, but not as attentive to patio diners as we would have liked."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "Usually go for business lunches when in the area. Always a good fresh fish, great salads, and of course the pasta dishes if you want a heavy meal. Service in the past was a bit slow, but this last visit was done very efficiently."

  • "We took my husband to Vinnie's to celebrate his 60th birthday on a Sunday evening. We thoroughly enjoyed a special evening with family, good food and good wine. The atmosphere was relaxed, but not overly casual. Service was excellent and the end of our meal they served a special birthday dessert. We had a wonderful time."

  • "Excellent food. Great taste and reasonable quantity for price. Attentive service and good wine selections."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "For those of us who live north of the city, sometimes hard to find a good local place. Vinny's was great for dinner recently. Nice wine menu, well done apps/entrees and not *too* expensive. We had the pear/goat cheese salad, caprese salad, carpaccio, chicken scalopini, margharita pizza, Tiramisu and Chocalate Mousse. All were very good."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Went here on a date night. Great food I must say! Salmon was delicious, as well as the cod. Highly recommend. The waitress seemed to not be pleased that my date and I seemed to be younger than we really are. We both are in our mid-twenties, and she seemed annoyed by us being there, and surprised when we ordered after dinner drinks and dessert. She also seemed to talk to us like we were immature and didn't ever treat ourselves to fine dining. After dinner drinks were fabulous, as well as the dessert. I highly recommend coming here for the occasional nice drink. Very fun interior and nice atmosphere."

  • "My friend and I chose Vinny's for our girls night out dinner date. It was my first time here and I really enjoyed it. The complementary bread and olive oil was very good. I enjoyed a glass of rose. I wish that their wines by the glass had a little more variety. Only one Sav Blanc that I could remember. And only one Malbec. For dinner we ordered the Chicken Parm and the Gnocchi with veal meatballs. We shared both dishes and still had leftovers. I was very impressed with the preparation and the fresh ingredients. I plan on coming back soon."

  • "Vinny's on Windward is our go-to spot for occasions warranting a bit of overeating. Starting with the fried calamari (the best in town, in our opinion), any entree choice - menu or special of the day - is sure to please. The servers always know the wines inside and out, so if you aren't knowledgeable about wine, they can really help you out."

  • "I have eaten at Vinny's several times and have always had nothing but excellent service and food!"

  • "As usual food was great and service was impeccable.Truly one of the finest restaurants in all of Atlanta."

  • "I took my girlfriend out for her birthday to Vinny's and we had a great time. The moment we walked in the staff greeted us with warm smiles, sat us very quickly, and we got comfy with the atmosphere the moment we sat down. Everything about the food experience (bread/oil, apps, main course) was fantastic. They were very helpful with our wine selection as well. The manager seemed to ask how our experience was throughout each course, which we liked. Very personable and very attentive to our needs! I would recommend Vinny's in a heart beat and it's definitely a place I will be visiting again. I do not think I would be content with only trying one dish off their menu, so more visits are needed to try out more! :) Must go! "

  • "I frequently take business associates to Vinny's for lunch because you can always count on excellent service and great food. We had calamari and an antipasto plate for the table which eveyrone devoured. Everyone loved their entrees, especially their specialty crab cakes. Our server was great! I love Vinny's for dinner with my husband as well. One of my favorite Alpharetta restaurants!"
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "This a gem of a restaurant which combines old world, classic service with courtesy and style accented by flavorful food. I have eaten here many times and in all my world travels Rick, my server excels in the top three of restaurants I have visited (French Laundry in Yountville, CA the terrace dining room at the Grande Hotel in Cap du Ferat). He is a reason to visit Vinny's alone. Try the scallopini di pollo. Phenomenal springtime glamor with great balance of ingredients. "

  • "I've been here several times and have never been disappointed! The attention to details is obvious. From the time you are greeted at the door; the service, chefs specials, diverse menu and superb wine list leave you with nothing less then a great dinning experience. "

  • "Overly noisy level inside the restaurant requires that you speak louder than normal "

  • "Went to dinner for a special occasion on a Sunday night. Normally this place is amazing, but on Sundays service is terrible. We have been to dinner twice on a Sunday night and the service was not good. Food was cold and we felt "rushed". Also, we asked for three different bottles of wine and they were out of all of them, each time waiting for the server to come back and tell us that they did not have the wine in stock. This experience made the celebration not so happy. Servers are not usual staff and our waitress was slow and rude. Will not return on a Sunday again. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Always been great, this time it was good. seems like the quality of food and presentation is on the down trend. "

  • "Never disappoints! The crabcakes here are the best around! We had excellent service and they always make it a special occassion!"

  • "I'm not sure how but I think we ended up brunching here two years in a row. As I recall, 2013 was great. 2014 not so much. The restaurant was very busy. We ended up seated under the vent and my kids were cold. The food was slow to deliver. The server was a bit overwhelmed and not terribly friendly. When the food arrived, my quiche was burned, fruit was warm and potatoes were cold. "Not what we want for the mother" agreed the DRM as she tried to help out (but confessed they were now out of quiche). They offered "something else" and comped dessert but I think I'll return to designating this as a good place for client lunches and happy hour, not high traffic holidays."

  • "Went to Vinny's for Mother's day and as always had great service and wonderful food, too bad they only do brunch twice a year...I would be a regular."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "we went with 2 other couples and had a great time. What we like about Vinny's is that you can bring your own wine. That is important to us. Everyone enjoyed their dinner, we all got a salad or appetizer before our main course and were to full to get dessert. we would all go back. I am mad at myself I had a $10 coupon from Sedwick group and I forget to use it."

  • "We've always enjoyed Vinny's and have been fans of Chris and Michelle's restaurants back to the early days of Van Goghs in the early 90s. This visit was not up to their standards. The two cute, young hostesses at the door failed to smile, welcome us, or show any personality, or even utter a word as they seated us. Not a great first impression! That was immediately overcome by the attentive and professional wait staff. They were great. Service was downgraded from 5 to 4 stars only because of the hostess staff. The carpaccio was very good as always, the seared sea scallops were excellent. The veal scallopine, while good, was overpowered by the sauce. The white chocolate crème brulee napoleon was outstanding, as the desserts always are."
