FABULOUS!!! I have worked down the street for 2 years and never knew it was there. A friend recommended it and my husband and I went for lunch on a Wednesday. What a pleasant surprise! I grew up visiting my grandparents in the North End

I love Vinny's, they are the best. The sauce is real, not ragoo. I enjoy the smells and the textures of all the meat and pasta dishes. I can walk to this location so I am not sure about the parking, except on the street.

Pros: great selection, great food, informal, fast service, excellent leftovers, decent wine prices

Cons: not for big parties, music didn't match the food (but wasn't too loud or obnoxious)

While the food is decent, the service is poor (a friend asked for a Coke wih his meal as we drank wine and the waiter handed him a glass and a plastic bottle of Coke from the subshops standup chest).

Pros: Good pasta. Good prices.

Cons: Cheesy atmosphere, poor service, no parking. Food is god but not worth a special trip.

Where else can you get a meatball sub at the counter for lunch and shrimp fra diavolo 'round the back for dinner? Vinny's is a godsend. My nana used to love the tripe. Go! Be prepared to wait, but you won't regret it.

Walking into the back of a deli, I wasn't sure what to expect. The Service was unbeatable (GB)............she even remembered us from the g-train earlier in the day. The entire meal was perfect. I have never had pasta which tasted so

I'd heard stories about Vinnie's at Night, and they were pretty accurate. It is in the back of a deli/convenience store, the wait-staff wasn't totally on the ball, and it was more expensive than we expected. We sat there ready to order

Went on recommendations from friends. I found the food to be very authentic and tasty. I loved the large portions and the excellent bread with olive oil. The only thing I found odd was standing around waiting for a table. No one came

My mother is Italian. She came over when she was sixteen. So I'm very hard to please as I can cook better Italian food than a lot places serve. Vinny's at Night is the "real deal". They serve dishes I would have found on my
