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.

Love it here. Only issue we had was the bread you have to pay for was stale. I have never believed in restaurants charging for bread..... and then to serve hard, stale bread wasn’t nice. Everything else was perfect though!

Waitress seemed mad at us the whole time. We came on valentines and every table had a rose for the date but mine. I got charged for 3 cole refills and the service ruined the whole thing for me. I probably wont be returning just for that sole reason.

The food and service were very good. The seating was horrific, especially considering the reservation was made well in advance. We were seated at a small table adjacent to the restrooms and the bar. Ambiance and noise level were not pleasant. Very disappointed!

Vinny's is a beautiful and classy restaurant. The food is fantastic, the ambiance unequalled, the service superb, and the experience unforgettable.

Two years ago this was the restaurant I took my wife to for her last meal before undergoing major cancer surgery. Thankfully, she survived. Three months or so later, when she was able to eat real food again, we returned for that first meal. As my story reveals, Vinny's is our family's absolute favorite eatery and carries a special place in our heart.

If you've never been, and you can afford the small upcharge a place like this deserves, by all means go.

I promise, you will absolutely love it.

We love this restaurant and dine here frequently. Unfortunately, the special menu and holiday made for a less than satisfactory meal. Our table felt rushed, having our entrees come out shortly after our soup. Dessert was hurried and checks were on the table before we finished. The menu looked appetizing but fell short of our expectations. The lobster chowder was more of a broth with a few tiny pieces of meat and little flavor. My husband did enjoy the veal, however, my pasta was greatly under cooked. The tart pastry was well done but you would not have been able to identify any particular flavor for the filling. It honestly was not worth the calories. We will dine here again, based on our usual experience but will choose another restaurant for special occasions.

Service was atrocious. Poured our own wine while the waiter talked with another employee at the bar. Another waiter who actually brought our entrees out asked if we needed anything else and actually poured a top up, all while our waited still chatted at the bar.

Outstanding food and service Jan 2021. Have been coming to Vinny's for several years, but missed most of 2020 because of the pandemic. We had meatballs with gnocchi and chicken scaloppini. The latter basically chicken picata served over ravioli instead of angel hair or linguini. Both entrees were delish. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. Vinny's is worth a first experience or a return. Good spacing on the tables, so dine in should be OK. Waiter also remarked that their takeout business had gone way up.
