NY Mag says:

There are certainly better and more crowded places on Bedford Avenue to grab a slice than Vinnie’s (Anna Maria Pizzeria down the street, to name one), but the pies here will do if you’re in a pinch. This railroad-style restaurant has a slightly desolate feel that’s only somewhat improved by one large window facing the street and a smattering of 80s-era Sylvester Stallone and Al Pacino photos on the walls. The friendly, shy guys behind the counter make a thin crust pizza with a well-done edge—crisp on the outside and soft on the inside—but the slices turn soggy at the center and toppings slide off. For piling on the tomatoes and peppers, their thick pan pizza offers a heartier base. Entrées aren’t the draw—baked ziti is creamy but bland, the flavor of eggplant gets lost in a parmigiana plate, and, unsurprisingly, the Caesar salad dressing comes from a bottle. Not happening, but not demanding either, this eat-and-run joint tends to host lone guys and families out for a quick lunch or dinner.

An old-school pizzeria with a modern edge, Vinnie’s serves up unique pizzas, like the Ranchero (BBQ chicken, Ranch dressing, bacon and sharp cheddar). They also keep eco-friendly folks in mind by offering vegan slices. And just so the old-school Williamsburg locals don’t feel left out, they keep plenty of Gino’s Italian ice in stock.
