The Vineyard Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

I have been going to the Vineyard for 20+ years. It is comforting to always find it the same. The atmosphere is relaxing and the food is delicious! My husband lived in Rome for three years and finds the food to be authentic. We live in Ohio now but make a point to return to the Vineyard each time we return to PA.

Our dining experience at The Vineyard is always excellent! It's a great place to take our out of town guests. The food is always amazing! Our server was great also. We have had him several times and he is amazing. He is server #10. Thank you for another wonderful dining experience!

This restaurant was ok - nothing special here. The food tasted good, but I though the atmosphere was dreary. We made reservations at this place and our table was in the basement. It looked like we were in a banquet hall with about 10 tables (all the same size). No decor, quiet and a little creepy. Would definitely try a different restaurant if I come back to this city.
This is the second time only this restau ...
This is the second time only this restaurant was available on Open Table during a big university weekend. So, we went.
Don't get me wrong, the food is above average, but there is nothing special here. It's hard to get past the dingy, musty, old decor. Every now and then a business has to invest in new digs. It is well past time they take out a loan and improve the physical plant.
This is a neighborhood restaurant. Pretty much a checkered table cloth Italian, service was good, not elegant. Some dishes were left on the table and not cleared for dessert.
The experience is like going to a neighborhood diner. The good news, for those that have a tight budget, it is relatively inexpensive.

I am new to the area and found it on Open Table. Went by reviews, When I drove up I was not sure as from the outside it looked sketchy. Don't let that deter you.
The people are really friendly and the food delicious. I was very happy with my meal and the experience.
Will go back again.

This restaurant serves authentic Italian food in a fun atmosphere. The food is consistently fantastic each and every visit we have made over the past several years.the cold antipasto for an appetizer serves two. We love any of the veal dishes. The veal is hand butchered by the owner/chef and the freshness is apparent with the first bite. Desserts are made in house and are not to be missed. Seriously, just go. You won't be disappointed.

We dined at the Vineyard early Saturday evening with company from out of state. Part of the group had more driving later that evening, hence the earlier time. This was the first time for the out of town group and they enjoyed the meal. The staff had a booster seat for the 1 + year old but he preferred mom and dad. He seemed to enjoy the food as well as watching all the people. We were able to enjoy a relaxing, delicious meal without being rushed. Our friend treated us as she wanted to celebrate my husband's birthday. Everything from the salad and soup to the chicken and veal dishes as well as the stuffed shells dish ending with desserts; at our table chocolate cake and tartuffos were most delicious.

Great food, good enough to compare with most high scale restaurants. The waiter was a bit lax. Never asked if we wanted another drink and our water glasses were empty and were never refilled. But all in all we had an enjoyable time and good food.

Have eaten there for special occasion for over 20 years! This visit however did not go well. Had reservations but had to wait 20 minutes for a table. The service was good but the quality of the food was poor - my favorite dish was horrible! Not sure if there is a new cook or cutting costs on food quality but will not be going back.

The food was all excellent. Don't miss the Prosciutto wrapped in fresh
mozzarella with roasted red peppers appetizer. Awesome! Our waitress
was spot on with all recommendations right down to the wine choice of
Montepulciano D'Abruzzo. Excellent Red and totally complimented the
main entrees. The Shrimp Fra Diavolo was perfectly spiced, I'll get that
again for sure.

This is a classic family Italian restaurant, with really good food prepared in very traditional ways. My wife had the cheese ravioli and it was very fresh with terrific marinara sauce. The mozzarella is made in-house and was delicious with sliced tomatoes and italian seasonings. Quality and quantity of everything was very good, including two cocktails from their extensive specialty menu. Total cost for two with cocktails, appetizers, entrees, and tip was $100. We've already recommended it to friends and will be going back soon. If you like classic Italian delivered in the old manner in a neighborhood setting, you should try it.
vineyard restaurant continues to shine after
we come to the vineyard for the veal dishes .. they have incredible veal plain and simple ! we also enjoy the sleeper wines that Maria recommends .. most recently a delicious brunello ... also very much enjoy the shrimp diablo appetizer and the garlic bread ... it's a true family affair here and they do a great job !
