Food was good.
I discovered this restaurant when I started to work at the MGH at Assembly Row as a vaccine nurse in February and my husband and I have gone at least once a week ever since. The food is authentic Italian and always delicious. My only issue is that I am 10 pounds heavier since discovering this place 😂.
Great food and service. Also a great value for both food and wine. Easy to find parking on the street in front. I highly recommend.
Excellent meal! Excellent service! Very affordable. Will definitely be going back!
Outstanding as always. The menu and food are fantastic.
The steak my boyfriend got was not very good at all and he didn’t eat it.
Food was OUTSTANDING!
Everything was great. Veal is outstanding-very tender.
Excellent experience. Great food, service and funky atmosphere.
Excellent food :)
Always a delicious meal....the arancini amazing, and homemade fusilli a great option.
The atmosphere is old-school, and it’s really cool that the front is a deli/ store. The food was outstanding and portions are huge! Our waitress was fantastic. They made the best out of the COVID guidelines.
The meal was very good but my capreses salad wasnt as fresh as I’m use to.
The food at Vinny’s is always on point. The homemade pasta is yummy. The bread they give you when you are seated is sooooo good . I could eat a whole loaf. Partying they survive the pandemic. It would be a real loss if they don’t make it
First of all, we love Vinny's. However, this time the reservation service was not very good. We had a 7:00 pm Open Table reservation. They sat us at 7:45 pm. We stood there for 45 minutes.
Once we were seated the food was still very, very good and the table server was good but obviously working too many tables and not very engaging.
We have been visiting Vinny's for many, many years. This is a special year with many challenges. I can't be too hard on them and we will definitely be coming back soon.
Hopefully this helps them to address these glitches. Thank you.
The food was great and the service was excellent.
Will return again.
Terrific food and service as usual. As good as any Italian restaurant in area. Adhered to all COVID restrictions. Will return
Great vibe, fantastic food and superb service. Love it here.
Vinnys is outstanding in every respect. The food is authentic Sicilian cuisine. Fresh veal and homemade pasta. Servers Johnny and Victoria are excellent.
The food is stellar. Great appetizers. I had eggplant parm, which was outstanding. Shared tiramisu for dessert. I almost never get dessert, but it was worth it. Well-priced selection of Italian wines. Bring your appetite.
As great as always. Food ( salad, pasta, seafood) was terrific as was service. Our favorite. Don’t bother with the hassle of the North End. Vinny’s is better. COVID restrictions in place. Can’t wait to return
Great as always
Awesome meal as always
Outstanding food!! Can’t wait to go back!
Lovely manicotti special in one of the homiest places to eat in Boston. Attentive friendly service and great Sicilian food! A destination restaurant in East Somerville!
My dining experience was terrible. We waited almost an hour for our meal and we had to ask our waiter about the status versus the waiter being proactive about why it was taking so long for our meals to arrive. Something obviously went wrong, either the waiter forgot to put in the order or the cooks forgot about our order, because a couple that was seated after us not only had their meals arrive in about 20 minutes, but they had already finished their meal by the time our entrees arrived! At most restaurants, a situation like this would have resulted in at least part of our bill being comped or discounted, but not at Vinny’s. We were charged the full price for the meals. My husband was so frustrated and tired by this time that we just had the waiter put our meals in a take out bag. My husband and I have been to Vinny’s about 6 times and enjoyed our previous meals, but after this experience we won’t be going back!!!!
Considered a staple in this area, a place that people say "oh you gotta try this, they open into a restaurant at night." Does not even come close to meeting the hype. The food was subpar at best. Shocking, because the owner is Italian, and the food does not taste authentic. The soup was extremely bland, the arancini was soft, and the chicken taste like it was from a freezer.
Took some friends tonight. i found this place through open table. awesome. i keep returning. hone made pasta. huge portion sizes. DECAF CAPPUCCINO ! the calamarI WAS COOKED PERFECT. NOT CHEWY.
i had the sausage and shrimp over broccolu rabi and pasta. perfectly done. i will be back.
Love Vinnies! Had swordfish special and husband had veal parm, both very large portions. Warm fresh bread is great! Best Italian food around, authentic and inexpensive for what you get.
Its always been top shelf. And the inside changes look great .
Great friendly service from the time we walked in the door to the time we walked out. The staff was friendly and helpful, they made us feel like VIP’s. The food is Amazing, and I was surprised how fast it came for how busy they were.
The fresh made pasta was very delicious and our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely come again.
My favorite restaurant in Somerville........nothing else compares
Excellent, as always
Amazing as always!!! Cannot wait to go back!!!
Great food, large portions. Always consistent. Good service.
Great family restaurant, real Italian homemade pasta. Only problem is parking.
I love Vinny's. Love the food, love the ambiance, love the service. So I go back there a lot. Not only is the food delicious, it's just fun to be there. This time I had the shrimp fra diavolo with angel hair pasta. Great! A little spicy, but the spiciness actually brings out the flavor rather than hides it. Perfect for a cold night.
