It takes a lot for me to write a poor review of anything, but after dining at Vinny's last night, I felt that it was my duty to warn people about how bad this restaurant is. First came the delivery of our bread-- the waiter drops a loaf with a knife through it on a plate with a plastic cup of oil and herbs. Then the salad comes out, absolutely drenched in their house dressing (which wasn't bad, but there was WAY too much of it). Then the entrees-- I had manicotti and a vegetable medley. The manicotti was tough and the filling inside (chicken and mixed cheeses) was dry and flavorless. The vegetables were soaked with oil, limp and soggy. My date's dish, a chicken breast layered with tomato, eggplant, and pesto, was similarly bad. We're not hard to please, but the chicken's quality was noticibly poor-- tough, stringly, and way too hard to chew. Her side of pasta was overcooked and instead of tossing the pasta with the sauce, they just ladled it on top. Service was actually fine for us, but the food quality was inexcusable. We came in with an open mind and no expectations, and the experience somehow still managed to be a huge let down.
Pros: Cheap, average service
Cons: Truly bad food quality; Bland taste; Depressing atmosphere
