Great italian food where you might least expect it. Fabulous. Great service. They didn't have it running when we were there, but they were 2 days from christening a brickoven pizza stove!

Since we had a large group of 15, the menu was pre announced and served family style. Vinnie, his wife and other family members welcomed us warmly and we were served appetizers and wine. Our entrees included chicken piccata, shrimp florentine, chicken parmesian, pesto pasta,...More

Quaint small town feel. A reservation is required but it is well worth it. The atmosphere is friendly and the staff is very accommodating. I had the spaghetti and it was done very well and the presentation was delightful. The chocolate cake for desert was...More

Reservations are required because its just Vinny, the chef and owner, and a waitress. Also don't be walking up with jeans, short shorts, see-through top and flip flops. It's business casual. That out of the way, the food is absolutely top notch, as was the...More

Stopped in tonight with my wife and my son. We did not have reservations and they welcomed us in like family. Our waitress was just a doll. Great attitude with the perfect recommendations. Overall... Completely Satisfied. Will definitely make the trip from Winnsboro again.

I visited Vinny's last night with a group of friends. We had a very nice dinner. If you're looking for ambience, this isn't the place. The restaurant is in an old gas station. The lighting is florescent. The restaurant is small. While we were there,...More
