A very nice experience. I wish it were closer to us, we'd probably go more often.
We left thinking about all the people and groups we needed to tell about this restaurant. It could become a regular for us. Worth the drive across town.
They short changed Groupon users. No salad with dinner that normally comes with entree. No seafood entrees. 2 tiny rounds of french bread was all the garlic bread. Chicken Marsala was way over salted and pasta was watery/over cooked. Chicken Alfredo was smallist serving ever seen for an entree. Would have fit in a salad bowl. Cheesecake was frozen boxed like Sara Lee.
Wonderful Italian food and atmosphere. Loved the music also.
The place was not decorated and seemed depressing. We were told that the dessert was store-bought???
Upon entry tables was not clean, during the meal the waiter would not take any dirty dishes from our table. The dirt dishes were stack on our table. The Stuffed mushroom sauce was good. The veal calabreze was good. The Seafood Adriatika was horrible, I could not eat. The sauce on it look like have some foaming and was very clump. Service on this place was the worst ever. I will definitely do not recommend this place to anyone. In the end of the meal I had a Groupon that was not honored. The groupon stated one appetizer, Two entrees and One desert they make me pay extra because they said the Groupon only cover $36.00. That was nothing on the Groupon description stating that I need pay extra
The manager and the server both tried to bring up some "exclusions" to Groupon but I pointed out that there wasn't any. The manager also tried to bring up how his business relationship with Groupon was not very good. As a customer, I don't need to know that nor care to. I can tell this establishment is hurting for customers.
My best advice for this restaurant would be to determine is identity and establish what kind of customers is seeking. It looks like they were trying to cater to middle class families but based on the quality of tables, silverware and noting that there were no pictures/artwork on the walls, they maybe in trouble as they need to get better.
Thanks for the great service and offering very good food as great prices.
Food was super and service delightful. I will be returning for more in the near future, anxious to try some of the other entrees.!
really nice and very casual.

Vinine's may have found itself a comfortable spot in the heart of Texas, but its roots come from farther away—its founders moved here from Pennsylvania almost a decade ago. That may explain why the menu, full of Italian dinner classics, also harbors a few shout-outs to its East Coast roots. Perhaps that's most evident in the chef's pizzas. Beyond classic margherita or pepperoni pizzas, chefs top their pies with Philly steak tossed with green peppers and onions and compose their New Yorker with grated parmesan, olive oil, and basil. But the dishes here go beyond slices with meals as varied as shrimp and crab in a white cream sauce and housemade pastas, which honor Italian culinary traditions without dying anything green, white, and red.
