“Italian "Magic"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2013

My wife and I chose Vinnie's just to test the local Italian fare and use it as a benchmark. Interesting little place complete with a personable magician on a Wednesday night. Apparently there are musicians on other nights. I started with the calamari appetizer (asked if it was real rather than heated frozen) and it was OK - a little oily probably because the rings were small and collected the oil. The house salad was good and my entree of spahetti and meatballs was g-normous! It included 3 baseball -sized meatballs (a little too salty but tasty). I really liked the slighlly spicy sauce but would have liked more parmesan and a few chilies. The waitress didn't offer. My wife's lasaga was quite different - minimal pasta and lots (and lots) of cheese. A bit too gooey to really taste the sauce. The portion was again more than enough. The waitress was excellent - very nice and willingly brought us take out containers.
If you want a good basic meal in huge quantities this is a good place. We would go back but would order a pizza as they looked excellent!

“Owner Invested!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2013

We were looking for good pizza and we found it. Great, crispy crust topped with fresh ingredients. We had the "Godfather" and loved every bite. Also many good Italian dishes if you wish something other than pizza. The entire staff made us feel welcome.

“Just okay”

Just Okay. Nothing to write home about it's Italian food. And it's just a plain restaurant....no zip.
