Can not say enough good things about this food. Very authentic Italian food. The Sunday gravy was just like grandma would make. The bartender was very friendly as was our waitress Ashley. Highly recommended.

My family and I had another absolutely delicious meal at Vinnie's. The food was divine, the owner's wine was spectacular, and the service was top notch. I very highly recommend Vinnie's. Tourists should not leave Asheville without trying it!!

Best Anniversary date ever. Called to be put on list and was helped immediately. Open and warm atmosphere. Wait staff obviously well vetted and extremely well trained. Speed of service was perfect and never felt rushed. Even the General Manager came to wish us a Happy Anniversary. And that's not even beginning to come close to describing the food. Best... More

Vinnie's was recommended to me for a great Italian meal and I was not disappointed. The meal was wonderful and the service was excellent (Thanks James). This neighborhood restaurant is a diamond in the ruff. Easy to get to and worth the trip.

We were visiting Asheville and looking for a place for pizza. We had the Gorgonzola salad and a pizza; both delicious. Vinnie's has a full menu of other Italian favorites as well and a nice wine list. The service from our waiter James was excellent. We will definitely go back if we're in the area.
