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

I went to Vincenzo's after co workers recommended it. So here is the breakdown. The staff was very friendly. We had calamari which was very good. The bread was warm and fresh. 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

I have never had a problem with food but service sometimes is lacking. On a very slow early weekend evening four of us sat down to have dinner in the dinning room. 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.

Good menu selection - appetizers, soups, salads, burgers, wraps, pizza, pasta, chicken & veal entrees, daily specials - nothing priced over $10.99, most include soup or salad. Even though it was "lunch" we could order anything from the menu. I had veal Vincenzo (2 "real" veal cutlets, roasted red pepper, mushrooms, artichoke hearts, light marinara over choice of pasta) with... More

Went to a wedding anniversary party with a group. The food was good. Everything else horrible. Grossly over priced. We never seen a smaller coffee cup. When we asked for a refill waitress was gone for 15 minutes. Came back without the coffee and took the creamers off the table. Never offered water. You had to ask. Never did any... More
