We were in a group of two families on a busy Saturday night 12-30-17. Our service was excellent. The pasta was excellent. The salad was ice cold and simple. Salad is unlimited. No complaints! Neat building!

Went to Vinny's on a recommendation of a friend. The building and décor were very interesting and quirky, however, we found the flavor of the food and the service to be average.

Tasty Italian food. We went to celebrate our 40th anniversary. The garlic bread is delish along with the dressing on the salad. Waitress was fun and she made sure we had everything we needed.
