    Great restaurant, we try and visit every time we visit the Gold Coast . The food is always great and portion sizes are generous. I was a little disappointed in the service this evening, no record of our booking and as we were the only customers dining in the time taken to serve the meals was not up to the usual standard. Having said that, we’ll be back !

    Food was excellent, nothing too much trouble, enjoyed the experience. Happy to recommend. We had 2 small children with us and they were welcomed ( which is not always the case at other establishments )

    The restaurant decor gave it a homey feel. The dining room felt nice and open which was pleasant on a warm evening, and made the room feel bigger. We really enjoyed all the food - pesto chicken pizza, Roberto pasta and garlic bread. Service was attentive

    Prices have increased and the quality seems to have disappeared. We ordered a glass of wine each and the wine glasses were very small and not what we were expecting and pricey for the quantity. Having garlic in my sweet chilli prawns with rice meal I thought it would have been fresh garlic and not from a jar as it affected the taste and left a bad aftertaste in my mouth, and the sweet chilli sauce was from a bottle and not “their own” as stated on the menu. The veal special we ordered looked very anaemic and again a small quantity for the price. It has been a while since we were last there and was disappointed so we will not go back with the decline in food quality and increase in pricing.

    This was the second time we visited and a friend recommended that we should try the ribs as we did, they were amazing! To quote my partner “The best ribs he ever had!” The staff was very friendly and there was a good atmosphere. We’ll definitely come back! The tiramisu makes you feel like you’re in Italy, it’s the best I had in years!

    Really great food we had the bruschetta as an entree and all the ingredients seemed really fresh and full of flavour. Mains were a calzone and a pasta dish I can’t recall the name of. Both were fantastic, great amounts of toppings/fillings in the calzone and just all round great taste. Dessert was a tiramisu and a chocolate pudding both were amazing, the tiramisu was easily the best I’ve had outside of Italy. Really great restaurant

    Small suburban Italian Restaurant. Quite crowded with tables close together but that’s usually a sign that the food is good and it certainly was. Staff were clearly flat out busy but did a great job. I will be returning.

    We love Vinnies and have pretty much made it our "go to" restaurant for a chilled, casual evening out. The staff are friendly and the food is always delicious and portions very generous. Meals are well priced and the atmosphere super relaxed. Highly recommended for a casual catchup with good friends ??????

    Great Local Italian Joint. Food was tasty and not expensive with huge serves. Menu is extensive with lots of choices. Wine list is somewhat lacking. pPreviously was more extensive but now seems to only have Margaret River WA Wines. The owners need to get some S.A. reds into there wine list and to stock the mid strength Peroni. Also red wines are refrigerated. They are too cold. Need to adjust the temperature on the Wine Storage fridge. Otherwise great inexpensive evening. friendly pleasant staff. Will be back for the food and friendly atmosphere if nothing else Don't expect quick meals as all food is as you would expect cooked to order.

    had dinner here on Thursday. Great food. Good service. Tasty food and best of all not expensive. I have found myself Southport local Italian Joint and fully expect to become a regular. Overall really nice inexpensive venue for great cooked to order Italian in a quaint friendly family owned and operated place. Will definitely be back

About the restaurant

A touch of Naples in the south Family-owned and operated, Vinnies Italian Restaurant has satisfied residents and visitors to Southport since 2000. Your hosts Peter, Carol and Craig make it their mission to give diners an authentic Italian experience in old-style surrounds. Vinnie’s sweet chilli prawns are an excellent way to start the meal while deciding on your main. The ribs are famous at Vinnies, although we do like to enjoy a pizza calzone, a pizza of our choice folded in half and toppedwith hot Napoli sauce and mozzarella. We think they’re best enjoyed al fresco at one of the outside tables when the weather permits. Admittedly, that’s because it takes us right back to a balmy weekend we spent one summer in Naples. The pasta comes with gluten-free options, so there’s no reason not to indulge, especially with sauces as good as these. Best dish: spare ribs
