Great experience at Vinny’s for my birthday! Our server, Paul, was very attentive and provided exceptional service. He brought out a beautiful dessert sampler for my birthday that I really appreciated. We were very impressed that the valet was so attentive that he had our cars pulled up before we even reached the hostess stand.

It's a super nice place, great menu, excellent service. However, when is crowded is so difficult to keep a conversation. Very loud, the acoustic in the restaurant is terrible.

We had a great time at Vinny's! Our server, Mila was outstanding! They played great holiday music, which was perfect as we had just went out as a family to get our Christmas tree! The food was all good from salad and appetizers to entrees! The scallops and artichoke appetizers were great! The butternut torteloni fabulous! We will definitely go back!

My Friend lives in Cumming and I live in Marietta. I was trying to find someplace in between to meet for dinner. I found Vinny's and it had 4.5 star review, and I love Italian (who doesn't), so we decided to meet there. Very friendly and knowledgeable wait staff, cozy atmosphere, great food. I will definitely go back for another enjoyable evening.

Great food. Our waiter Chris was attentive but not overbearing. Sat at the long table near a wall and had to ask the other party to stand so I could get out, that was a little weird. Other than that will be back.

Three ladies celebrated our friend's birthday. Our server was Paul and he was so attentive and accommodating. I enjoyed the charred octopus which you don't see on many menus. One friend had shrimp the other friend had Lasagna. Both really enjoyed their dishes. Paul provided a beautiful complimentary birthday dessert plate. It was amazing. We all love Vinny's!

The food was a little bit overpriced for the portion size, but the ambience, noise and overall atmosphere was very relaxed and refreshed. Wouldn’t recommend it for a casual night out but maybe more so for a special occasion (or pay day)!

We have been to Vinny's many times and last night was very disappointing. The server only talked to my husband and didn't say much to me. When I asked a question he talked around it and didn't answer. The fryer wasn't working and he didn't tell us until he came to take our order and we had to change what we wanted. I had the chicken scallopini and it was very salty and my husband had the fillet and it was underseasoned.

I tried to get your telephone number using many sources to no avail. I find this very unusual and quite surprising, why is it not published. I was forced to write you a email, and have not gotten a response from Open Table. I also find that very un-professional and am considering to opt out of any relationship with your company. I was trying to find out why on the past two occasions I was refused to be given visit credits for dining at these establishments even though I made them and received proper acknowledgement from these restaurants. If this is the way you do business, I may very well dis-continue using Open Table in the future. Please check my file and you will see that I am a regular customer, and have accumulated to date 1300 points. If this is the way you do business.

Thank You

We haven’t been back for several years because we didn’t think it was good the last time. We tried again thinking well, they have stayed in business, maybe they are better. Nope. Chicken parm was burned, wife’s chicken dish had very little chicken and had a funky texture to it. Service was ok. I did ask for a glass of wine that was listed in their wine menu by the glass and was told it was no longer available that way and I had to order off the other menu by the glass....weird cause I could buy the bottle. Update your menu. Overall a beautiful restaurant but don’t go if you want good food. House red was actually quite nice.

The best part of this visit was the cheese board. Service was nonexistent and food came out cold. Food is overpriced for the taste and quality. Our server was focused on everything else but taking care of her tables. I will not be returning. Maybe they were having a bad night, but their bad night still cost me $100 for 2 people and we left unfulfilled.

Vinny's is always a crowd pleaser. We have been here many times and this restaurant has survived for years when many others have failed. The restaurant feels upscale, chic and the food quality is very good. The best part though is that it's just a rich, vibrant environment. It's a little noise in the main room with the high ceilings, so someone who has elderly parents may want to consider that, if noise and echos bothers, or ask for the adjacent rooms.

Drinks and wine selection is excellent and the service was very attentive. I would have no issues with recommending. The complimentary valet parking is also nice.
