Vinny Vanucchi's 'Little Italy' - Dubuque
Great food and great service! Wonderful to be able to make reservations on my phone!
Food was excellent, as always. The garlic bread is the best!
Food was great and service was great. Would recommend to everyone!
Steak was great! Baked seafood pasta didn't have much flavor.
It was great experience. I was celebrating my and my sister’s birthday and had a great meal with family.
Went to the Galena location a few months back (amazing food and service) and we were expecting the same level of service and food on this trip to Dubuque.
Unfortunately, this experience was a total flop. The Chicken Parm was extremely overcooked, very dry and rubbery (ate four bites and gave up). My husband’s highlight was his dinner salad, his Chicken Marsala was essentially overcooked, thick brown gravy on pasta.
Service was fine, felt rushed to order immediately upon sitting down (again, not at all like the service in Galena).
Unfortunately, we won’t be back. ☹️
We were literally the only ones in the restaurant when we got there and she sat us at a table of 4. We had 5, two being 6.5 ft tall, so it was a little uncomfortable for them, and I would've really liked to have been a little further away and not sitting right on top of them with Covid and by the cold window..... I think their tables should be bigger so people can spread out a little more. There was only one table bigger than 4 seats and we weren't at it....
The Alfredo had a strange consistency and the fried ravioli was too spicy.
Service was great and the food was really good. My favorite was the atmosphere and decor. Great place, go if you have the opportunity!!
I have always been to the Galena location, which I love. Tried Dubuque for the first time Sunday. Service was ok. Salad and garlic bread was great as always but entree was not the best. Hardly anyone else was there, waitress was friendly enough but feel customer service could have been better. It was my husband's first time going and I had really hyped it up and was so excited for him to try Vinnie's and he was not impressed. I would probably try that location again though. Could have just been an off night.
Great place food and service is always excellent
Ambiance is comfortable. Food is great. Service was excellent. Enjoyable meal.
Great food and service. They took very good care of us, including following COVID recommendations very well. Will definitely be back next time we are in Dubuque.
Food was fabulous. Baked Penne, Brushetta, Garlic Bread. Service was bad, server just seemed inexperienced. Left empty plates on table. Would go back, hopefully have a better server.
Very rushed service and even worse food
Veal Marsala by far the worst I ever had... sauce was horrible!
The garlic bread is so delicious! Very nice place and friendly service! The hostess did a great job of keeping social distancing in the lobby and the tables are spaced well! Great experience all around!
Excellent experience. The food and service were great. Will definitely recommend.
Great food. Better service
Always Delicious! So truly appreciate the precautions being utilized in these crazy times...Just wish you were closer to the Quad Cities!
After all the reviews I expected more. Veal was okay but chicken dish left a lot to be desired
Great atmosphere and tables were well spaced. Host was friendly and seated us quickly. Our server could have been more attentive. Had to ask multiple times for waters and ask another server for silverware as ours rarely checked on us. She was nice though, just not very attentive. Food was delicious as usual. The garlic bread is amazing!
Food and waiter were very good. However, the staff told people in our party to put their mask on when away from the table, while others strolled by without one. We were a bit baffled by this. Did we look like people who had covid while the other diners didn’t 🤔
My husband always orders the fettuccine alfredo, THE BEST HE HAS EVER HAD. I love the lasagna and baked penne. Tiramsu is excellent
Just a good place to go wit good food and a nice interior.
Great food and fast service!
Food was fantastic as usual, service was great, and the atmosphere is pretty special
Excellent Service and authentic cuisine. Loved the Veal Marsella. The Quality Olive Oil for salad dressing was great. WE WILL DEFINATELY BE RETURNING.
Love the food and great service. We try to dine there at least once when we visit Dubuque.
Some of the best Veal Parmesan I have eaten. The Italian sausage is also 1st class. Just the right amount of zing
The service was great, food was ok. Not a whole lot of flavor and was overpriced for the quality
Best Italian food in downtown Dubuque! I love the salad and the garlic bread is fantastic.
The garlic bread was the best part of the meal. I could have just eaten that and the salad and been very happy. I had the fettuccine carbonara and it was really good. My husband ordered the chicken parm and there was something not quite right with the chicken. Undercooked maybe? The marinara sauce is heavy on the fennel flavor - great if you like that, but we're not fans. The rest of the food was very good, so we'll definitely go back and order other items.
We looked high and low for a romantic dinner spot in Dubuque for our anniversary, as we had never been here before, and this place topped it all just by the photos we saw.
When we got here, it was no less amazing. The decor is gorgeous, smooth sounds of Bocelli and Pavarotti in the background (even with the bar connected next door lol). A welcoming hostess, great servers and delicious food!
We would definitely be back, after having such a great night out and easy enough to park outside the restaurant rather than walking a block to get there!
First time eating in a restaurant since the pandemic began. Thankful for the staff all wearing masks and social distancing other than setting food on our table. We were spaced out from other customers and felt very safe. The food was delicious, our server super friendly, and we thoroughly enjoyed our night.
Great food, great service. A little overpriced. Would definitely go back.
Great staff, uniquely designed interior, great patio seating. And great and plentiful food for the money as well
Whenever we are lucky enough to get to Galena, we always eat at Vinny's! The food is the BEST, and the restaurant staff is always so accommodating! Love this place!!!
This was our first night out at a restaurant since March and it was wonderful! Such a beautiful restaurant and the food was amazing! Excellent service, everything very clean and guests appropriately spread apart. We will definitely be back!
We thoroughly enjoyed our food and surroundings.
Great Place. Great People
