Vinnys moved from Main Street to S. Caroline St. for more space, unfortunately Feb. snow storms caused the roof to collapse on Feb. 27th 2007.

The Utica Observer Dispatch covered the roof cave in here.

This is where it all began, on Main Street in Herkimer. Vinny opens their first pizzeria and stayed here for 19 years.

About 60 percent of restaurants go out of business within their first three years. The first year is always the hardest— with 44 percent failing to get off the ground.

At Vinnys we’ve been around for 30. With the industry and economy constantly changing, Vinnys has managed to stay abreast of trends, regulations, consumer wants and a number of other dynamics. We’ve done this by keeping it simple: serve Mohawk Valley area residents the finest homemade foods made fresh daily, with generous portions at a fair price.

Another key factor for any restaurant’s success is location, below are Vinny’s locations over the last 30 years. The entire family’s focus is on one restaurant and providing a consistent product that our customers have come to expect and deserve.  

We’ve come a long way in 30 years without ever leaving Herkimer and we’d have it no other way. Thank you for your continued patronage, we're looking forward to the next 30 years. 

A family business in a family setting since 1986.

It took us almost a year to find a place to relocate. Our present location is our biggest restaurant to date, more than double in size to accommodate a family setting and dining room.

To celebrate over 30 years in business, the Herkimer Business and Professional Association declared March 6, 2018, a day of Recognition and Thanks by honoring its founders, Vincent (Nonno) and Catherine (Nanna) Marchese, for all their dedication to the Herkimer community.

A BIG thank-you to all our loyal customers throughout the years!
