This is a BYOB very close to Smithville Village. Doesn't look like much from the outside but very cozy and pleasant inside. Menu is quite extensive with specials and we were very pleased with our dinner and also the service.

We stopped in to Vincenzo's on a Friday night for for a party of 5 on the way home from AC and were pleasantly surprised with their selections and quality of food. This was the first time we ate there. We ordered the calamari as an appetizer which was very good and a generous portion. Their Italian bread was excellent.... More

We had pasta Alfredo with shrimp. The pasta was a little harder then I cared for and the shrimp had no flavor. Also ordered was crab ravioli with... More

Once again we tried this establishment after we received a gift card from a friend of ours. Our waitress was very unorganized and could not multi task. We noticed their was an additional menu which I assume was the special of the day given to others but we did not get one and when I mentioned it to the hostess... More

We ordered two pizzas with lots of toppings and soup. We were told regular pizza could not be served in the dining room and we would have to... More

This is my goto resturant. Great food for the price. Big food portions. Very friendly staff, and the food is delicious. If you want good service and great food visit Vincenzo's.
