My wife and I visited this restaurant for our wedding anniversary. Classic Italian restaurant with interesting decor. Although the restaurant claims to have gluten free options they are very limited. However, with that being said my chicken pasta was excellent. I'm certain we will be...More

Nothing special about the food. Overpriced. Lacks the real "Italian" flair. Ok if you are visiting Dubuque, but not great for residents of Dubuque.

We stayed in Hotel Julien and didn't have much choice to eat in the neighborhood so we just decided to go to Vinny Vanucchi's for dinner. It didn't disappoint us at all, in fact the food is pretty authentic and sooo good, plus it had...More

Really good food but staff is more concerned about closing than letting you enjoy the ambience. Music cut off at 9ish in the middle of our meal. Made comment to waiter staff and got a typical stupid millenia response. WE WANT TO CLOSE. I guess...More
