Really enjoyed our meal. We got there at around 7:45 PM on Saturday night and had to wait about 15 minutes. We were able to sit at the bar. The bartender was friendly and let us pick her brain about things to do in the area. Hubs had the ziti and I had a spinach calzone (huge!!!--we split what was... More

Visiting Asheville for the weekend, hungered for some Italian food and read the glowing reviews of Vinnie's on Tripadvisor. The food was excellent and really filling. Pizza's are huge and the pasta dishes were full of flavour. The only dissapointing aspect was the poor service by our waiter. Not attentive to our table and dissapearing for a good twenty minutes...

Sonya was a treat tonight! Great food and greater people. Awesomeness. Really liking the ambiance here, very homey. Warm and fuzzy. Feels like I'm back home on the farm in Italy. Sonya even speaks Italian! Just like momma made it.

Wow!!! My family and I were passing by Asheville on our way southwest. We saw Vinnie ' s on both Trip Advisor and Yelp and liked the menu. We were not disappointed at all. I had the chicken parmesan. It was a big serving and delicious. The chicken was moist and the sauce was good. Our server Grace was awesome,... More

We were traveling by Asheville and stopped by for dinner. The atmosphere was inviting and music was excellent. Ordered the Twice baked lasagna and Special of the day Spinach Ravioli. Both had wonderful authentic Italian flavoring. Ended with a yummy Spumoni! Reasonable prices and fantastic service especially from Grace--she was informative and had an AWESOME personality. If we ever make... More

Monday night visit and had to wait for seating. Bartender very attentive (and busy) while we waited for our table. Sat on the patio - nice but also a bit on the noisy side. Husband loved the lasagna and our friend loved the eggplant. Big portions. Prices comparable to Asheville eateries. Waitress, Sonya is a gem as she is attentive,... More

Been searching for good Italian, and have found the "real thing" with Vinnie's. Food is excellent, prices ( for Asheville) are reasonable, their homemade bread is delicious, and the staff very knowledgeable and attentive. Not only capable, but virtually all staff( not our server) thanked us for coming. Outstanding vibe!

My Sweet Lord! What a welcome as we entered the restaurant! After being greeted by the staff, we were quickly seated by the window and everyone came over and wished me a Happy Birthday. It was terrific! We ordered calamari fritti, mozzarella marinara, fried cauliflower board, garlic knots, arancini, their fabulous bread basket with olive oil & balsamic vinegar, and... More
