I took my lady to Vinny's for our Valentine's dinner this year. It was a quiet evening and we were one of just a few people there. (we arrived just after they opened on Sunday afternoon)
The host was very pleasant and allowed us our choice of seats. Likely because it wasn't busy yet but still we very much appreciated it.
We both loved our meals. My lady had their Shrimp / Scallop Risotto and I had their Lasagna. One of my tests for any restaurant that has calamari on the menu is to order it. It is my opinion that if a restaurant can make great calamari, chances are they'll do a great job with the rest of their dishes. I was right - and Vinny's did an excellent job - crispy yet tender.
While my lady finished her meal I had to take what was left of mine home. And I even enjoyed that for lunch the next day! LOL - I was nearly full of calamari!
I want to call out my server Mila. She had a beautiful accent and provided incredible servant. She was very attentive without being overly so.
We would definitely recommend Vinny's and intend on returning.
Thank you

Expertly prepared meal. Excellent wait staff. A bit noisy and tables are a smudge too close together for private conversations but the food is outstanding.

The menu has changed over the years and had more “non-traditional” tastes for what we were expecting. The service was the worst that we have seen in many years.

It was very crowded and we had to wait despite having reservations. This is understandable but not once did anyone acknowledge or apologize for the wait.

We had to change tables twice. First time,hostess put us next to a large group.
Why do they always do this? Second time,the fourtop next to us were absolutely
screaming. Vinny's is so loud but this was horrible. I was going to leave but the
Waiter found us a bit quieter table in the bar area. Yes,it's better there.
Menu has changed-not for the best. Might be back but not anytime soon.
Food was good but so so loud.

The service was terrific. The waiter saw that my wife and I had our 1-year-old daughter with us and was very understanding. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone that wants a nice environment and great service and most of all, delicious food!

Arrived for our 7:30pm reservation on time. No hostess at from station to greet us, despite making eye contact with someone who appeared to be a "manager" a number of times, she never approached us nor sent word that there were guests standing at the un-attended hostess stand. When a young girl did arrive, she asked if someone had greeted us - to which we replied NO....and she said OK.

Waiter was very nice, sporadically attentive, slow to take our order and even slower to refill water and drinks. But very nice....he was managing a large party for about 45 minutes (Into our hour and 45 minute Birthday meal for my 14 yo).

Food was good as usual. A filet had to be sent back three times (RAW.....Raw....medium)...it was taken off the bill.

I tipped the waiter factoring IN the comp'ed steak meal, and paid in cash....finished our desert and left without a thanks from the waiter. Not a big deal, but would have been nice.

Have dined at Vinny's many times in my 8 years living in the area - business, casual and celebrations)....I recently moved 20 minutes away and made the extra trip for a special Birthday dinner. Most likely was my last trip....my last visit 1 month ago, they did not have my Open Table reservation in their computer - despite showing them my confirmation on Open Table - and Open Table counted the visit as a NO SHOW.

Two strikes and I think I am out.....Best of luck!

Service was extremely slow. Wait staff was obviously stretched thin. Restaurant temperature was uncomfortably cold. Food selection is very limited.

My husband and I have been to Vinny’s several times, it’s always been a good experience. But this past Saturday the food and service were underwhelming. Our server was pleasant and kind however she had a very full plate trying to tend to us as well as several large tables. We waited longer than usual for our salads to arrive and even longer for our entrée to arrive. The kitchen appeared to be understaffed as well. My husband’s lamb chop was delicious, our dining partner’s fillet was not hot. My salmon was undercooked even though I asked for medium well. Perhaps this was an off night for staff.

We really like Vinny's as well as the other Sedgwick restaurants. Kimberly took excellent care of us with just the right amount of advice and interplay; will take the time to ask for her specifically on future visits.
They did a great job this visit, especially since it was NYE. Food got a 'very good' this time just because, even though the veal chop was cooked to temp and tasted great with smoke and some grill char, it was a little tough - or was the knife dull - I'm not sure.
Overall a fun and reasonably priced night.

Previously had a great meal and Vinnys, loved the place, but this time food it service was not that great, my server, the older blonde waitress, seems as tho it was an inconvenience for her to bring us food or water. No smile just did not want to be there apparently. I tried to get her attention to bring us some more bread, and she ignored me. She responded better when my husband asks for bread.
Our pizza was very plain, and the scallop risotto had no flavor, was cold and dry.
