Vinny’s Italian Kitchen
There's a reason why Vinny's Italian Kitchen has a reputation for serving some of the Valley's best and most authentic Italian cuisine. The origins of the restaurant actually began on the island of Ischia, near Naples, Italy. That's where Vinny's owner and head chef, Vincenzo DiCostanzo, was born and raised. He and his father opened a restaurant on Ischia when Vincenzo was just thirteen. "This is where he learned to cook," said his wife, Virginia.
Vincenzo left Italy when he was in his twenties, moved to New York and married Virginia. He as since opened restaurants in New York, Arizona and now owns and operates Vinny's.
"Our three children were all born in New York, but somehow they all wound up in Medford," Vincenzo said. After living in Arizona for a while, the couple decided to join their children here in Medford to reunite the family and be with their grandchildren and great grandchild. "It's been eight years now and we're so happy to all be together and living in the beautiful Rogue Valley."
