We were on our way to Blythewood from Clover. Not sure of what we wanted to eat, I checked out TripAdvisor and read the great reviews on Vinny's. So we stopped and there was one other couple there. It was a Monday night. The food...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

We had a wonderful experience at Vinny's. The food was fantastic and the service was just as good. The serving size is not small (as some reviews have suggested) because we both took some home. The desserts looked fantastic. We split the cheesecake with bananas...More

Great authentic Italian food and a large selection. Reservations are needed. Vinny the owner and chef usually visits every table and waitresses address patrons by first names. I recommend the Italian crime cake for dessert - delicious!

Our waitress was great. Our food tasty. Wine wonderful. The bathroom situation needs a complete overhaul No hot water. Not clean. In spite of that would definitely go back.

We were recommended to Vinny's by John, the owner at Cat's Paw Winery in Rock Hill. As instructed by John, we made a reservation, and prepared ourselves for the modest curb appeal when we pulled into the parking lot. But then, we entered the building...More

We celebrated my wife's birthday at Vinnie's during our visit to Chester and were not disappointed. The restaurant, formerly a gas station and food mart years ago, has a warm, cozy feeling that makes for an enjoyable visit. The food was exceptional and the service...More

Vinny's might not be what you expect to find in Chester, SC. The food is excellent, and well prepared, and the portions are just right IMO, not too big. It is a family run place, and the staff is extremely friendly. Vinny himself is very...More
