Really disappointing
"Where shall I begin? The service was slow to non-existent. The waiter said he'd go get our bread. He never did. Finally we asked the bus boy (the only bright spot in this restaurant) he brought it to us. The waiter was short and unfriendly. The place was virtually empty. we saw 2 other booths with customers. I'd hate to see how long it took to get service on a busy night. It was half price night for the wine. We paid full price. We printed out the coupon as did our friends (seperate checks) we were only allowed to use one, in spite of the amount of food we ordered. The veal and chicken were overcooked. The scampi was skimpy. The salads looked like they opened a bag of fresh express from the grocery store and put a menial serving into a bowl. Not an onion, tomato, crueton, cheese anything embellishing the salad. Denny's would have been a better night out. If this place is in business in a year I'll be shocked!"

My Brother's Vinny
"Excellence service and great food each and every time we visit. Our collector's club hold its annual fall meeting there after the Veteran's Day Parade. Our members come from all over the state and rave about the great food and service. Without a doubt it is one of best restaurants in Folsom."

My Favorite Restaurant
"I've never had a bad experience at this restaurant. The wait staff is always pleasant and attentive. The food is always delicious and filling. And the coupon provided at this site makes it affordable. I highly recommend this restaurant to my family and friends on a regular basis. It is, without a doubt, my very favorite Italian restaurant."

Disappointing
"My Brother Vinny's was recommended to us as a casual alternative to Masque in EDH. We were misled! The service was slow, and our waitress acted like the place was packed, when at least half the tables inside were empty. The patio where we were seated was full but there appeared to be plenty of staff to cover the normal Saturday night sized crowd. Our salads came out before our appetizer, the Brie, which was cold and greasy-that became the theme of the evening. We ordered the gnocchi and the riggatoni, both were cold and ordinary. Basically if you think the Olive Garden is good you'll like this place. The pluses are it's location and outdoor seating, the bread was hot and fresh and the man who brought our wine was really knowledgable and friendly. Also there is a good selection of half bottles of wine. "

A solid choice can improve
"The food is usually solid but does miss sometimes. The Prime Rib (try the Cliffhouse) is spotty but the Italian faire is a better bet. The pastas are always cooked close to perfection. Staff aims to please but inattentive at times as well as forgetful. Though the wine list is good, we bring our own for a corkage fee. Seating is always the sticking point. Even with reeservations, others will be seated before us. This is one of my pet peeves and happens more times than not at Vinny's. (Bro, I hope you are reading this!!!)"

Pricey
"I went there for Mother's Day. We had never been there before. My husband brought me and my mother-in-law with our children. The food was quite good, but definitely on the pricey side. Was a little suprised at the portion size given the price (smallish portions). The ambience is great- definitely try the balcony if weather permits. Would be a great place to take a romantic date. My boys behaved, but not the most family friendly place in Folsom. "

"Never made it in. Was told that it was a 20 minute wait. After being ignored for almost 45 minutes, we left. Watched people that came well after us get seated in front of us. I'll stick with Visconte's, much better service."

great food!!
"The atmosphere was wonderful, the food absolutely perfect. They have a pretty good wine selection and a great looking bar. Our service was great, the waiter very friendly. The only down side was waiting for someone to seat us."

Good Atmosphere :)
"My family and I enjoy the downtown Folsom surroundings. The food was good but the young servers lacked the attention to make it one of my top choices. Better customer service would place this experience in the 8 to 9 range."
