Never Again ! – I had dinner at Vinny T's this past weekend and I'm sad to say that it was the worst dining experience that I've had in many years. How many ways can you express "AWFUL"? We were "barely" greeted by the Manager/Hostess with an attitute that initially made us want to head for the exit. Once we were seated, we immediately ordered our apps and drinks. After 2 rounds of drinks and 50 minutes later our appetizers finally arrived. Unfortunately our main courses followed within 5 minutes, not giving us ample time to enjoy the appetizers. The waitress was nice enough and appologized for the delay but made no effort to appease us in any way. The food was nothing special, a bit bland and slightly cold from the fact that it had obviously sat in the back due to our apps being delayed. The staff seemed as if it was their first day on the job (all of them). I have dined at the Vinny T's location in Dedham and really enjoyed my experience, but I will never, even go to the Natick location again, and will recommend against it to anyone I know. The place has no character. It's cold, open and lacks any comfort level at all. I think we would have had a better time (and meal) had we gone to the Wendy's up the street. I think it's time for the owners of Vinny T's to take a close look at this location and think about either renovating it or shutting the doors.
A BIG THUMBS DOWN FROM THIS PATRON.
A favorite family and tourist spot, delivering gargantuan portions of straightforward Italian fare in kitschy environs. – The Scene
Kid-approved Italian fare served family-style. Few patrons look up from their troughs of pasta to notice the faux-Italian decor (checkered tablecloths, pictures of Italian-Americans icons like Frank Sinatra). Solo diners, a rare sight because of the portion sizes, flock to the hospitable bar area where there's always a game on the TV. Pleasant servers try to maintain straight faces when delivering laughably large pasta platters.
As one might expect, the restaurant favors quantity. Most items are available in two misleadingly titled sizes: "per uno" (enough for two people) and "per due" (enough for four). While decent steaks and chops are offered, most everyone wisely sticks with pasta dishes like lemony chicken piccata and rich lasagna. Desserts (try the creamy, reasonably authentic spumoni) are equally humongous.
Nice Big Plates! – The food is exceptional and theres always leftovers to take home. Service is awwsum!
I love Vinny T's – This is the BEST Italian Restaurant in the area. The food is remarkable-very fresh not over done. Me and my family dine in Natick at least 2 times a month. The servers & managers take VERY good care of us. I really recommend this place!
Great Experience – Nice Italian feeling without being too commercial. The food is great and the service is friendly. I would highly recommed taking family and friends here if they are first time visitors of the Boston area.
Large Groups – I recently attended a work party at Vinny T's in Natick-I never knew they hosted such elegant events! The room looked so nice with white linen table cloths, candles and fresh flowers.
The food and service were outstanding! I never knew they had 2 Private Banquet rooms that can seat up to 100 people. It was wonderful. I really enjoy that restaurant!
Olive Garden SUCKS!! – I love the food at Vinny T's. The difference between Olive garden and Vinny T's is the fact that Olive Garden food TASTES LIKE CRAP!!! Vinny T's food is much higher quality, you can TASTE the difference. You couldn't pay me to go to the Olive Garden. The service is always good too. MAKE A RESERVATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
