Vinny’s at Night

Word about its low-priced, generously portioned Sicilian fare got out a while ago, but dinner at this no-longer-hidden gem in East Somerville still makes you feel you’re in on a well-kept secret. It could be because the no-frills dining room is set up in the back half of a corner store, where the handmade mafalda noodles are magnificent. Once you’ve feasted at Vinny’s, you won’t be able to resist boasting to all your foodie friends about your find.
