Doesn't pay to go on a holiday weekend like Mother's Day in most restaurants, and this was no exception. We have been going here for many years, decades even, and this particular evening was pretty ho-hum from the overly excited and fast-talking bar area server making you feel rushed the entire visit to the below-par kitchen fair from the crabcake appetizer to the entrees. Not "bad" mind you, but certainly not up to par for this establishment. We wrote off to Covid re-staffing and hope they will soon be back to their usual splendor.

Business lunch on a Thursday. It was very quiet and not busy. Our server was amazing. He made excellent suggestions and the food did not disappoint. Ended the meal with dessert and cappuccino. It was the cherry on top! I'll certainly be back.

Our server, Jason, was excellent. He provided great insights regarding menu items, was very attentive to our needs and requests, and had very pleasant approach to his job. The restaurant also acknowledged our birthday celebration with a special dessert on the house to top off a great meal.

Our dinner was delicious. The service was friendly and prompt. We did have to ask for knives and forks. The restaurant was very very noisy. There is nothing to soften the noise which reverberates off of the high ceiling and brick wall. I was very difficult to have a conversation without shouting.

We ate outside and despite being on busy Windward parkway, there was no traffic noise. Food was excellent, fresh baked bread with dipping oil was delightful, service was outstanding, desserts a little small for sharing purposes...overall a great place to dine.

Been going to Vinny’s for almost 20 years. It’s consistently delicious! I’ve basically tried the whole menu and not been disappointed.
We were here for my husband’s birthday. They serve a beautiful dessert plate for special occasions that is such a nice touch.
Our anniversary is in a month, so when this arrived saying Happy Anniversary instead of Happy Birthday, we had a double celebration😊

I will definitely return to this restaurant. The srvice was excellent. The food taste was great. I gave 8t a 4 stars as I think for the price the portion should be bigger. I had the risotto with the seafood. The ambiance is great. The noise was low so it was pleasant to have a conversation.

Filet was excellent for my wife who favored the hickory flavoring. Sides were all good. Lamb was a little tough for the price. Orzo seafood dish was old, but probably good when it was made. Hostess was clueless, server was down to earth, casual and attentive.

Finding places that take outdoor dining reservations is not very easy, so when I stumbled across the opportunity to do so at Vinny's, I decided to take a chance. The food was delicious, the service was attentive but not pushy, and the patio had great atmosphere. None of our group had been here before, so our waiter was great about making recommendations for what we should try. It was totally worth the trek up to Alpharetta; if we lived closer, we would definitely be back very soon!

Hostess and waiter were excellent, but that is where it ended. Drinks were awful, except for the wine, one meal came out completely burnt and the rest were so loaded with truffle oil that they were just terrible. Cabernet is just a tad more expensive but well worth it. We will absolutely not be back.

Because it is a 45 minute drive from our home, my wife and I had not dined at Vinny’s in 20 years. It was even better than we remembered. We dined outside which was a pleasure. Our server, Shelby, was delightful. The food was delicious. Two of us had the lasagna and two had trout. Everyone enjoyed their meals. It was worth the long drive for us and we plan to return soon.

Our waitress was outstanding! She was great at describing the meals and filled our water glasses five times. She was not pushy at all and was perfectly attentive! The calamari was fabulous! Caesar salad was delicious. The bread came from Theosophy and you definitely can’t go wrong there. The gnocchi and veal meatball dish was one of the best dishes I have ever had and I am picky about my food. Gnocchi was so tender and was not floating in a ton of sauce but was delicately drizzled on top! The tiramisu was delicious! You will not be disappointed here!

Love this restaurant. The pear salad was a great combination of flavors. We had the lasagna (best I’ve found) and the special which was halibut on lobster cakes with asparagus and a citrus glaze. I hope it is added to the standard menu because it was outstanding! I highly recommend Vinny’s which is my go-to place for date night with my husband. You won’t be disappointed.
