Great food, and lovely atmosphere!!! Well worth the dining experience.

Love, love, love this restaurant. It's close by, the food is always good and so is the atmosphere. They have specialities which are super special and their prices are really good too!! If you like Italian cuisine, then this is the place to go.

We had a surprise 65th Birthday lunch at Da Vincenzo yesterday and it was made a very special event thanks to the staff, venue and food of Da Vincenzo. They had a set menu consisting of various starters (Mushrooms, Focaccia, chicken livers and Italian Salad). The starters were delicious and the service was excellent and all the food was brought...

Their venue is a delight and their food never lets me down. I love the way they've brought Italy to Johannesburg ... chickens roaming around and the décor is perfect. Everything can be opened up during the summer months and it really feels like you're in the country rather than a city.

We visited this firm family run establishment twice within a months’ time. This restaurant has stood the test of time and is still visibly run by the owners. Seating is inside, outside or with other options. It is large venue, and on a Sunday afternoon and a week’s day evening the restaurant was about 40% full. It is most tranquil... More

We recently went back to da Vincenzo after years. The setting is beautiful, the food always delicious and extremely reasonable. The service was as good as we remembered, and our veal and chicken main meals very tasty. I always enjoyed their very fresh simple and delicious salads and was very happy to see that they have kept up their standards... More

I don't know what's happened to Da Vincenzo....virtually empty on a Wednesday night. 4 tables and the waiter got the order wrong. So so T-bone with soft chips. New restaurants at Waterfall Corner, new competition...continued Excellent food & service at La Trinita up the road. When Da Vincenzo burnt down a few years ago and they rebuilt it, they should...

Do not bother trying to rectify any mistakes here. You will only be met with rudeness and blame. I have read the previous bad review from 2013 and nothing much has changed. The owner still engages patrons with contempt when any irregularities occur. I had organised two events in successive weeks bringing in close to 100 patrons but this does... More

Lovely quiet, peaceful location. And there a peacocks wandering around the grounds which is cool! The food takes a bit of time to come out, but our waiter told us about this when he was reading the (very detailed) specials board, and said it is because they cook it all fresh, and it was definitely hot and fresh when it...

The biggest advantage of Da Vincenzo is it's location. It is one of the few restaurants in Joburg which is not in a Mall or complex. This makes it special and a place usually well-frequented. It is situated next to a farm, so don't be surprised if you you see peacock walking in the garden. It is nice place for... More

We dined at this nice venue many times over the years. This time we booked for Christmas Lunch. We had a choice of 4 items each per starter, main course and desert. The quality of the meals was excellent as always. Although it was very busy, the ambience was good. We enjoyed our meal and were not disappointed.
