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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.
