Vinci’s has served up no-frills, dependable Italian food since 1995, buoyed by neighborhood regulars who order pizza, baked ziti, and meatball subs to go. To service them, the entrance opens into a standard take-out setup, with slices, heroes, and vending-machine soda. A brick archway leads into the fancier back room, where green-and-white checked tablecloths evoke a Lady and the Tramp excerpt: Flower pots, straw-covered wine bottles, and other tchotchkes sit atop exposed brick ledges, but two flat screen TVs emitting a constant stream of chatter detract from the Disneyfied charm. The menu runs to marinara-based stalwarts like eggplant parmesan, stuffed shells, and ravioli with cheese, but these are best skipped in favor of the undeniable highlights: freshly baked bread and thin, slightly sweet pizza crusts from the brick oven. Layered with fresh mozzarella, the crust stands up admirably to toppings like prosciutto, ham, and Italian sausage.
