Vinnie’s is an excellent little italian restaurant tucked into the south end of Halifax. This place has an unpretentious exterior. It is small, quaint, and cozy. Nothing spectacular in terms of the atmosphere. A lot of people opt for take-out because of it’s small size.
The absolute selling point for this hideaway is the value. Due to the fact that it’s tucked away, you wont find a thing on the menu for over $20. Not only that, pasta entree’s come with an option of salad or soup along with freshly baked bread! With most entree’s costing around $14 this means that you’re getting a ton of food for very little money.
I have a friend who has tried everything on the menu at least 15 times, which is why I had to go and try it out for myself. And I am glad I did.
We made a reservation 1 week in advance to ensure we would have a table for 5. After 2 hours the owner kicked us out because they needed a table. It was my first experience but not my last. I may opt for take-out next time to avoid the masses of couples glaring at us impatiently waiting for our table.
Deeee-lish! I will order this again. The quality is really quite impressive. Grilled, sliced chicken breast atop of a heaping bowl-full of penne smothered in a creamy basil sauce served piping hot with fresh cracked pepper. The sauce was not too rich and well balanced with garlic, cream and fresh basil.
Beware of the garlic…
I think they may have used a bulb instead of a clove. Opt for the spinach salad instead.
