Reminiscent of Brooklyn, the Bronx and the North End of Boston.

The aromas of home cooked Italian food along with the rhythmic sounds of Martinis being shaken to chilling perfection sets the tone for a night of fun and laughter. The menu runs the gamut with classics like Chicken Parmesan, Sausage and Peppers, Veal Marsala and Linguini and Clams. Family style dining is also available.

It is hard to put into words the feeling of being in one of those great, neighborhood Italian restaurants we have all grown up with. Imagine eating some of the best home-cooked Italian food and feeling like part of the family. The combination of the homemade cuisine and warm, friendly atmosphere means you could only be at Vinnie’s.

Amazing restaurant! The sunday gravy dinner might be the best meal i've ever had. The service staff is extremely helpful. Everyone is so nice, you get the idea that people are happy to work there. Everyone needs to try this place out.

To go Pizza was burnt and had no sauce. Also charged me 2 bucks for a pizza box. You get one star Vinnie.
Response from the owner - a week ago
Hello JA JA, we are sorry to hear you were less then satisfied with our pizza, we do not know which pizza you ordered, but most of them do have our tomato sauce. Our pizza is rustic and so some areas can be a bit more done then others. We never send out a "burnt" pizza. We do charge a $1.5 for all to go orders not $2 If you would give us another chance, we like to invite you to come back for a pizza and leave you with a better impression of what product we deliver. Thank you for taking the time on reviewing us. Vinnie's

OMG! Vinnie's Shrimp Fra Diavolo was the most outstanding I've ever had - a perfect meal for a perfect birthday. Although I'm not a tiramisu fan, Vinnie makes it awesome. Don't let the exterior fool you...inside you will find impeccable made-from-scratch food, fabulous wines (try the house bottle), lucsious surroundings, great music, and a gregarious and attentive waite staff. Vinnie puts perfection into the food while David Jones and friends deliver the fun! Thank you again!!

My son from Atlanta and I ate there Monday night. The place was packed and I know why. The service was great and the food was the freshest and tastiest that I have had in a long time. I am from Rochester, NY and there are a lot of Italian restaurants there and this was the best of all of them I have had.

First off, Eric was a great waiter. The garlic knots and calamari were as good as boasted. My veal marsala was delicious, the broccoli wasn't as good as I thought it should be, but the garlic mashed potatoes made up for it. The cannoli and tiramisu finished up the meal making it hard to get up and leave the table. For my first time, I now see why it got so many awards.
