Went to dinner for Father's day and found Vinnies to be of the usual high quality. The service was friendly and excellent. The food was also of the usual high quality and will keep me going back. The prices are moderate.

We loved this restaurant and all of our food was great. The risotto balls were yummy! The bolognese was fabulous. Dalton was a top rate server! We will definitely return.

No reservations. To quote their website, "don't even ask!"

I don't recall a separate room but the back area can be used for large parties. I've been there when a party was going on and there was no problem. I'd ask them how they'd handle it.
