The buffet was excellent, the R & B tribute troupe was excellent and my wife and the other two couples had the best time ever. We can't wait to return with an even bigger group.

Service was not good at all. My boyfriend and I walked in and the bartender just stared at us instead of greeting us and sitting us right away and one of the three open tables. Service was very slow, their waiters are very young and are not focused. We only saw our server about 3 times and someone else had to take our payment because our server was not around.
Also, the music was extremely loud for a dinner setting. I would not recommend this restaurant. It's more of a bar setting.

A friend of ours was performing at the restaurant and so 5 of us went to see him. The place was packed. We opted for dinner menus instead of having the buffet, which most people seemed to have chosen. The fried calamari was good as was the mozzarella and roasted peppers. The Caesar salad was just okay. An entree, penne vodka was good, but the two chicken breast entrees looked pure white as if they were boiled, The meat was tasteless, floating in a clear watery mixture and not an oil garlic sauce described on the menu. The artichokes were cold as if they had just come out of a can. The Veal (Sorrentino) pounded the thickness of a dime, was tough. The spaghetti frutti de mare was sub par. Between food, alcohol and tip we spent $300 and our dinner party was unhappy with their meals. I do not know if I will return.

Although the restaurant is quite plain in appearance, the live music is a throw back, but fun. The husband/wife team are sweet and personable and make you feel overwhelmingly comfortable. All the recipes are created by the owner and the food is EXCEPTIONABLE (especially the sauce)! We were with friends that are gluten free and there was no shortage of items for them to pick from, including chicken parm.

We found this restaurant by accident and we were really surprised by the Menu!! It is truly a Homemade Gem!! The food was done like Grandma used to make and the staff were all very polite. We will definitely make Vintage a regular stop. Keep up the good work.

Great burrata and fried calamari appetizers. Husband's homemade ravioli entree was just wonderful and prepared al dente.
My veal sorrentino was light and savory with fresh plum tomato sauce, tender rounds of eggplant on a bed of thinly pounded veal.
Our meal was enjoyable, servers attentive, owners present to greet patrons. This particular evening Dr. Jack was on the keyboards crooning our favorite Italian songs. It was just like a visit to nonna's house.

As part of a birthday weekend, we went to Vintage on Saturday and Per Se on Monday. I liked the food at Vintage better. Ravioli was to die for and cakes were amazing. I missed the eggplant rollatini, but mozzarella sticks, salad were solid. We had 25 guests, an extremely diverse group of diners, and every single one left this place happy. If you want to plan something with family that doesn't break the bank, this is your place. Reserve dinner as early as possible so you overlap with the entertainment at the end of the meal - it was a huge plus, music was classic, but noise volume would have been tough if it was for most of the meal. Service was warm and friendly. We "felt the love" at this place and hope to come back again.

We walked in and sat down. Based on just the set up alone, we weren't sure about how our experience was going to be until all of a sudden, an oldies band started singing and people got up and started dancing. We thought it was really fun to watch and completely changed the tone of our evening. Then the food came out. SPECTACULAR! It was REAL Italian food. Not processed or generic like so many places around here. The burrata mozzarella was out of this world. I love mozzarella, and I know when a restaurant has burrata, it says something about the restaurant. My ravioli dinner? Amazing. Both of the owners came over and chatted with us. Very friendly. Very personable. We will DEFINITELY go back!

Great little neighborhood place. During the recent cold spell, we were the only diners there mid-week. Needless to say, the service was great and the food was very very good. Picked the restaurant that night for location, not knowing what to expect.....will definitely return, especially since we learned they have entertainment several nights a week.

Entertainment Saturday nights. Good 2 person bands, but the music was a bit too loud for how small the restaurant is.

Open in October, food very good-homestyle Italian cooking without any airs.

Service has many problems which have to be worked out

Owners are very involved in getting the service right and are very caring to the patrons and are comitted to woring the service issues.

Can't wait to go back and try some more dishs.
