I used to be a regular at Vinny's. The staff knew me, the owner was usually around and a nice guy. Then maybe a year or so ago they dressed up the place a bit, lots of staff turnover, and the food quality deteriorated. The spaghetti sauce is watery and bland. Too bad because I really liked the owner and... More

This place has great food! Portions are large. Food is always fresh. Only draw back is when they are busy, they are slammed and service times goes up. Even still, it's well worth the wait.

I like pizza but realize it's not exactly health food. I get the one slice which is really large pared with a luscious salad with 5 ingredients, that's healthy. Beer is cold and good there as well. They have quite a few lunch specials that are reasonable and delicious. Great place. Bob Ross

Having recently moved to Hillsborough, one of the first orders of business is to find the best local pizza. When we found Vinny's, we hit a grand slam! The first week we discovered the place we ate there four days out of seven. Their pizza is AWESOME and authentic to the pizza from NY, PA, and NJ. Thin, not overdone,... More

Having had a great meal in the past, decided to pick up a pizza. Called on 7/31 at around 4pm. No answer. Called 3 more times. No answer. Gave up and got a pizza from a different place.

This place can be terribly cold. They run the air-conditioning hard to keep wait-staff cool. Even my husband was cold which almost never happens. Food is average.

We eat here at least once a week. The food is great and the prices are very reasonable. The wait staff is very friendly and very efficient. Highly recommended.

Vinny's is one of our favorite local spots for a solid meal at a reasonable price. Usually very easy to get in and out, with attentive and pleasant service from the staff. Our family goes about once per month and among the 4 of us we've enjoyably tried close to half the menu. No complaints, no let-downs.

Vinny's is a small town mom and pop style restaurant. Our recent visit was on a Sunday at noontime and it was quite busy. In spite of the crowd our hot food was ready by the time we were finished with salads. Our server was very pleasant and took good care of us. The food is fine but nothing exceptional.... More

We had takeout from Vinny's a few weeks ago and the experience was typical for our most recent visits. My wife had a chicken parmesan sandwich and I had a medium pizza. The sandwich was very good according to my wife - 2 thumbs up according to her. I was underwhelmed by the pizza. The crust was tough and overcooked,... More
