Avoid on the weekends for dinner – I loved to eat at Vinny's, I used to be a regular with my boyfriend. But the last couple of times we've gone, the food was cold, we had to wait 20 minutes to get a cup of water. Their staff are not very nice, especially when they are busy they are not very nice to you. I haven't been back in awhile, and I miss it, but I hate bad service.
Romantic ambiance, great service, modest prices and the best manicotti my Italian boyfriend has ever had - who could want more!! – We happened upon this place on a visit to Austin - couldn't find a parking place downtown & wanted something a little more serene. What a nice surprise.
AWESOME PLACE! – I've been to Vinny's several times throughout the years (2-3yrs). The food is good, the service is good, and the atmosphere you experience is especially good. I brought my ex-boyfriend here, I went with my good group of friends, I also brought someone visiting Austin from other city. It absolutely love this place. (If I recall correctly, there's such entree named aunie mary or something like that, it's great!)
Not sure how this qualifies as Italian!? – I was exteremely disappointed with Vinnys. I too went there based on other reviews and found it to be a joke when it comes to Italian food. The service was horrible and extremely slow (I went at a late afternoon time with only a few other people in the restaurant). It took forever to get our food and any kind of refills whatsoever. When I finally received my food (chicken parmigiana), it tasted like it came straight out of the frozen TV dinner aisle at my local grocery store. Do not eat here. Almost any other Italian restaurant in Austin is better than this place.
don't go. – I went to vinnys on the recommendations of a friend and Citysearch reviewers. The service was terrible, the food was disgusting, and there were two r#aches. The smaller of the two crawled across our table before we ever got our drinks... my friends and I weren't too concerned about him, but we k#lled him all the same. But the second, ooohhhh the second r#ach scared the hell out of me. It was a very large critter that crawled right behind me on the booth. One of my friends told me about it, I screamed like a twelve year old school girl, the r#ach continued across the back of the booth, JUMPED ON MY FRIENDS BACK, my friend hopped up and started spinning around, slapping at his own back, and, thankfully, someone at another table swiped it off.
Good value, no frills... – This has been our favorite Italian restaurant for years. Love the food, location and ambience. Healthy portions, good service and reasonable too!
Awesome, local Italian eatery – I have been to Vinny's many times since I moved to Austin about 10 years ago. Their food is always excellent and I love the side of brocolli that comes with many meals. The service is pretty good and the waitstaff is normally fun and interesting. I also love the ambience, the prices, and the low noise level. The food is fresh, homemade, and you can tell the people who prepare it care about quality. Try the Carbonara Alfredo or lasagna!
Yummy – My husband and I stumbled across Vinny's one night and fell in love with the place. The food and service was excellent, and we really could not believe how great the prices were. My husband is a BIG eater and he had plenty of food and I couldn't even finish all of mine. We got salad, bread, 2 entrees, 2 beverages and dessert for around $20-25. All of our friends love it too. It is somewhere you could bring kids or go for a nice adult dinner too. I highly recommend Vinny's!!
Vinny's is Great – My husband & I love Vinny's. It can be very romantic, exspecially on the patio. Always great food & drinks.....dinner parties are a blast there
Cute place for casual dining – I never crave Itallian food but when I did, we finally ran to Vinny's to try it out. Not bad at all. The salads that came with the meal were light and fresh. The Chicken parm was good and overall the prices for the portion was pretty great. Vinny's is worth a try.
