Been awhile since we had been at Vinny's. Food was very good (charcuterie and cheese plate, lasagna, chicken scaloppine), service just right. Went for lunch, now looking to setup a date for dinner.
Amazing service and wonderful food!
Very nice lunch ans service.
The food was great and our server, Jason was astounding. From guiding us to our wine suggestions to talking about the entrees and desert, it was great. He was very attentive and completed our dining experience.
Great service, superb food. Wonderful ambiance.
Beautiful ambiance and good food. I'm all for unique dishes and tried the squid ink seafood pasta and it was really good. The lasagna was ok according to my partner who loves lasagna.
Always exactly what you expect at this fine restaurant. Great service and great foods with great wine to accompany every dish.
This is going to be our go to restaurant. Amazing food and service
We enjoye each dinner at Vinny's, staff is great and welcoming. Great food!!
We had not been here for several years and we thought we would come back. In the past, we found the food and service good, the wine list acceptable, and a well dressed upscale group of patrons. On this visit, we had great service (Michelle pulling double duty as our server and bartender). The menu had a nice variety (the calamari shortage continues); we started with the Carpaccio. For our entrees, she chose the chicken parm; I the lamb (medium rare).
After studying the wine list through the appetizer, we were made aware that none of our choices were in stock and had not been for some time (very irritating). We settled on a replacement that was drinkable. The chicken arrived and it was a generous portion, but average in taste. My lamb arrived rare and received a return trip to the kitchen. On its return, the well travelled chop was very good.
We had hoped for a quieter environment for dinner given our 7:30 reservation, but the crowd at the bar was loud and dressed for a beach barbeque (flip flops, tee shirts, cut-offs, caps on backwards). This atmosphere will make us think twice before returning for a dinner.
Great food and service. We had wonderful anniversary lunch at this place.
They were out of the calamari appetizer so I ordered the octopus. It was served cold along with the artichoke app (barely warm). The risotto was good but they sold it as truffled. You could barely taste any black truffle or truffle oil. Overall I was very disappointed as this restaurant was always so good in the past. I will think twice before going again.
We reserved outside seating which was great considering the crowd inside. The fresh bread was delicious. The lasagna was excellent. My special of the night was salmon, shrimp, mussels was bland. Two other friends had the same dish and liked it.
Christine, our server, was Great!
A quick pick restaurant turned into one of the most romantic dates I’ve ever taken my spouse on. Will absolutely be recommending Vinny’s.
Overall cozy place, great food, good drinks! Beef carpaccio, bread as appetizers are great. Lasagna and risotto are terrific.
Food was fabulous, service great! Prices are a bit higher due to COVID shortages, but tge good is well worth it! Best crab cakes in town!
Party of 4: one got the lasagna; one got the chicken scallopini ; one got the soft shell crab special. All three were pleased with their selections.
Because I prefer fish, I ordered the snapper special. Unfortunately, the chef got a bit too creative, drowning it in port wine and vegetables. Not the best way to eat snapper. I should have trusted my intuition when the waiter described the way the snapper was prepared and ordered the soft shell crab special.☹️
The rest of the meal was very good…including my artichoke appetizer.
Service was excellent. Steak was not cooked to the temperature ordered, but immediately corrected. Balance of meal was very good. Food is fresh and the flavors are amazing.
We love the architecture and setting. Overall a good experience each and every time we go. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Two entrees were not hot enough… one filet was far more rare than medium, as ordered. Sadly,it was as good as in previous visits.
It was a great evening for a business meal after training in the office during the afternoon. All enjoyed. We had our facilitator from Miami join so we felt like we treated her well. She thoroughly enjoyed it. Great ambiance, service, food, wine and dessert.
We had a wonderful time celebrating my Mother’s birthday. The service, food, everything was perfect!
Great evening overall !
I made this reservation this afternoon for this evening's meal. The food was great with service to match. It does get rather loud when the restaurant gets filled. We will visit again.
Food was bland, little taste, poor service upon entering, didn’t recognize our reservation
Service was slow, but they could have been short on servers like many places. Always good food.
We ordered the calamari appetizer, and although good, it was too much! We decided to order one entrée and split it since we had so much appetizer. There was so much of it (hardly anything to complain about, right?) we could not eat it all. It needs to be split among four or more people.
We split the trout, and there was plenty of that, too, and it was quite good.
Service was spectacular. Mila was very attentive, casual, and not pushy at all. We thoroughly enjoyed her.
It was my wife's birthday and they sent out a birthday plate that was excellent! thank you!
Lovely meal and service. There was a good deal of cobwebs around the restaurant, from the lovely windows at the front, to the ladies room. Some attention should be paid on that. I was hoping my guest did not notice.
Terrific seafood stew, but priced higher than should be.
Crab cake was delicious...pear salad on point...flank steak special with Parmesan farro was unbelievably good. Bonanza Cabernet at reasonable price made entire meal. Vinny’s is one of my favorites.
Always great service great food ! Never disappointed! Been going for over 20 years!
Awesome night out with my girls!
Great service and food!
Vinny's Alpharetta is tried and true - been a staple for my family and I for 20 years or so .. great food, service and ambiance...Thanks
Send off for coworker
Food was great. All 4 dinners were exceptional. Steak was done just right, seafood risotto, very good, other Italian chicken dinners were very pleasing. Only complaint was that parking was tight, no spaces in 3 runs around the building, finally parked in a space of our own making.
Very nice inside atmosphere.
little noise level is bothering, however food was wonderful.
Absolutely, No. 1 restaurant we dine out so far!!
Great food, excellent service. Have been coming here for a while and tonight’s meal did not disappoint. I think because it’s been here for a while it’s not new and people don’t think about it often enough. It’s a great spot for dinner.
It was very good and authentic i recommend the prawns in the risotto the ambience was amazing
We were not expecting a Tuesday night to be so crowded. The noise level was over the top. We were unable to carry on a conversation with each other, and the server had to basically shout to tell us about menu. Unfortunately, we will not return to indoor dining. Patio may be a better option when the weather is acceptable. Also, very pricey - $45 for two small crab cakes and a side of fettuccine Alfredo. Truly disappointed in this dining experience.
