We went to the restaurant for our 30th Anniversary. The food was very good and the atmosphere was very nice. The garlic bread was very good but dripping in butter-that's probably what makes it so good:) Service was wonderful and prices were reasonable.

Very good menu selection, good beer and wine choices, and everything I have tried there is great! Nicely restored old storefront buildings house this quaint restaurant.

We traveled to Dubuque with some friends who had family living in the area and they recommended Vinny Vanucchi's as a really good Italian restaurant. Since our hotel was only a few blocks away, we decided to talk a walk and check it out. We are SO thrilled that we did!
What an awesome meal!!
The guys had seafood dishes - incredible! Small whole lobster in the dish- with pasta and sauce that was delicious! The meal came with salad and bread that was purely Italian!
My friend and I had the stuffed crabmeat mushrooms, salad and soup which was also totally delicious (although next time we'll come hungry enough for a meal!).
The service was very attentive and knowledgable, the price of meals reasonable and the atmosphere very "Italian"-- like you see in the movies!
Next time we'll be sure to check out the bar downstairs -- that looked really fun as well!
We will be back!

We were paging through a huge book of menus provided by the Hotel, and another guest said "Vinny's is the best... you gotta go there..." and he was right!
The staff at Vinny Vanucchi's was absolutely phenomenal. We appreciated the wine recommendations, and our Calamari was perfect.

My wife, niece and I visited this Italian restaurant on a Friday night and enjoyed the entire experience. Our server Luke was professional, knowledgable about the menu, friendly and attentive. Not once did we hear those dreaded words, "Hi guys." Thank you! Ordered two pasta dishes and a seafood/pasta dish. All were delicious. Garlic bread was very good. Dessert exceptional. Salad OK. Atmosphere was very good, and the restaurant was easy to find. Would dine there again on a return visit to Dubuque.
