Italian

The new Vinny Vanucchi’s ‘Little Italy’ location in Dubuque, Iowa, embodies every thing loved about our original Vinny’s location in Galena, Illinois. Serving the same Italian favorites including Nana Lu’s Meat Lasagna, Auntie Gracie's Sausage Ragu, and Dee Dee's Tortellini Carbonara, meals are complete with piping hot Garlic Bread, and Salad tossed with Vinny’s Italian House Vinaigrette Dressing. From eclectic artifacts and family portraits to rich wood floors and checkered tablecloths, we’ll transport you and your family to the Old Country. The moment you step into Vinny’s Dubuque, you'll swear Nana Lu is hard at work in our kitchen. You'll smell the slow-cooking marinara sauce and feel like part of the familia. • Family Recipes Passed Down 5 Generations • Pasta Bowls and Baked & Stuffed Pastas • Chicken and Veal Specialties • Vinny’s Thin Crust Pizza • Extensive Wine List • Import & Domestic Brews

I got chicken Parm and the chicken was too tough to chew. Ate four bites and told waitress- she asked if I wanted something else and I was grossed out so sad no. Got the bill and was charged the full price for my meal I did not eat. I mean at least comp one of my drinks. Service was very fast which tells me it was probably nuked hence the tough chicken.

The first time we ate at Vinny Vannucci‘s it was average then we ate there on Valentine’s Day of 2022 and it was spectacular and this most recent time which was 4/11/22, it was average at best. For a place that specializes in good quality Italian food I would choose Olive Garden over this location again. The server was great, so that’s a plus.

We ordered calamari and it came out burnt- I had Veal Parm. The veal was burnt on the ends. My wife’s dish- baked Seafood was awesome. Salad was good and so was the bread. The dining area downstairs was very loud with maybe 60% occupancy. Probably will look for another place to dine when in Dubuque.

You are given a clean extra plate to split yourself. Ask the price for a glass of wine, they will offer you their most expensive glass. Meatballs were excellent as always.

People that came in without a reservation had to wait 45 minutes. The ambience is wonderful. Service was a little bumpy, but it was busy and most likely they were understaffed. Food was fantastic.

Slightly understaffed, but the servers did an excellent job. Food was exceptional as always. Wife had a special request for her entre', the chefs did an exceptional job in meeting her request.

The garlic cheese bread ok but not warm. Baked Seafood pasta had no crab meat and very little of the other seafoods that were supposed to be in there. The baked penne was good but not great. For the price you pay per meal I expect better food. Water glasses were small also needed constant refills

Not much chicken in the fettuccine alfredo. Also just wasn't as tasty as it was all the other times we had been there in the chicken alfredo. Would rather pay a little more for better food. The service was top notch.

A few minutes later a couple came in and were seated in the dining area. This went on all during our dinner. The service was fair not what we are use to at Vinnys. We have eaten there many times. This is the first time we were rushed in and out.

Fast forward to Valentine's day weekend. We had to wait even though we had reservations, The server completely forgot our appetizer, the salad tasted like it was out of a bag from the produce aisle, bread was cold, so was my girlfriend's marsala. The pasta under it was hot but the chicken itself was cold and so was the gravy and mushroom. my chicken parm was hot but slightly undercooked should have been crispy but the dish was soggy.

Needed more herbs and spices. Italian music was being played very loud and on repeat. Server was amazing, very polite and friendly. My husband wanted a dessert (tiramisu) and the server came back very apologetic as they didn’t have any and she hadn’t been made aware. All the servers seemed to be very busy but all very pleasant and didn’t seem stressed.

Just choose from one of 6 menu plan options, pick your entrees, and leave the rest to us. We'll cook up Italian favorites and serve your meal family-style on large platters meant for you and your guests to share and pass around the table. All entrees are served with baskets of Vinny's piping hot garlic bread; bowls of salad tossed in our sweet Vinny's Italian Vinaigrette House Dressing; and dishes of penne pasta with our homemade marinara sauce. Complete your Italian feast with appetizer and dessert selections available individually or as combination platters.
