Explore Asheville Restaurants – Vinnie’s Neighborhood Italian

High and Low Dining in Asheville

Here they come, with their Chicken Parm and their “Sunday Gravy”. The Sausage, Peppers and Onions, the Mussels, the Lasagna, Pizzas, Linguini and Clams and the Tiramisu. Here comes the wine, good times, the laughs. And the cost of a meal? Straight down. To the cellar. Boom! The Italians are coming. And the old neighborhood will never be the same. Vinnie’s features “Old School” neighborhood Italian food reminiscent of Brooklyn, the Bronx and the North End of Boston. Vinnie’s is casual and family friendly with homemade cuisine and a warm, friendly atmosphere.


From I-240 take exit 5A (Merrimon exit); travel .8 of a mile north; Vinnie’s is on the right. Look for the neon sign.
