“Best Italian in Orange County”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

Vinny's opened three years ago in a small strip mall on Whittier Blvd in La Habra, Ca. We first visited because we had a coupon from the Entertainment Book and we have been going back ever since.

Vinny's is nothing fancy, just seven or eight very simple tables. Its the food that brings you here. Portions are huge, a large dinner would easily feed two. Our favorites are the Spaghetti and Meat Balls, Lasagna and Meatball Sandwich. Unlike most Italian,Vinny gives you plenty of sauce. The garlic bread is also a cut above the others.

Vinny is always there; a friendly guy always willing to engage in conversation with his customers.

We were there recently on a weeknight and there was a steady stream of customers both eating in and take out. The word of mouth on Vinny's has caught on and the business is thriving as a result.

In April, Vinny's is moving to Brea on Lambert Ave. about two miles from the current location. Vinny says it is 2 1/2 times bigger, will have booths and serve wine & beer. Can't wait.

It is great to see Vinny rewarded with all his hard work being able to move to new surroundings.

Try his soups, homemade and tasty. But Vinny and his wife are really the nicest people. Check for hours, i think they close on sunday.

This was without a doubt the worst pizza we have ever had. We ordered sausage, mushroom, and green pepper. What we got was about 3 lbs of sausage, 3 lbs of mushrooms, and about a lb of black olives. We have never seen a pizza so loaded with toppings. It was pretty bad. The sub sandwiches are OK.
