My mom turned 75 and we decided to have a "Lunch Birthday party" for her at Da Vincenzo. Forty one people attended. It was such a great success. Dealing with the staff at the restaurant before the time in arranging everything made me see that these people knew what it was all about. The venue was perfect, the service was... More

I decided to take my better half for a romantic dinner. It was such a special place, my favorite Italian restaurant. I don't give out 5 stars unless I think it's the bees knees... and it was.. The waitor was unfortunately average and was too busy. . but the food hit home.. love it and will definitely go back

We were invited by friends while traveling. It was fully booked. The staff were excellent working hard to make sure everyone had a great time. The food was fantastic. I had their lamb shank and it was cooked perfectly. A small menu is a good sign of a restaurant that cooks fresh ingredients and knows what they are good at.... More

The waiter put the bucket of ice in the sun and... More

I have been coming to this restaurant for ten years now and it never disappoints. We've had birthdays, New Year, family visits from overseas and even our wedding. The team at Vinnie's never disappoints. My husband and I visit regularly, and we love the food, ambience and most of all the staff.
