Fantastic food, excellent service and great atmosphere! True authentic Italian food! From the appetizer to the after dinner drink it was top notch - I would highly recommend and will definitely go back when we visit the valley of the sun!

I went in this Italian restaurant several times. All dishes are very good and some time I was able to taste even some authentic traditional Italian dishes that were excellent. Like the ravioli filled with a meat called in Italy "Brasato" ( a long coked beef). Unfortunately is a special and it is not available all the time. The tomato... More

When you walk in, the ambiance grabs you! warm tones, inviting seating, welcoming staff! The owner walks around greeting everyone and the complimentary garlic bread is wonderful. We had a party of four and got there at 4:30 p.m. on a Saturday (best time, no wait!) Our dinner party chatted for quite some time and the server was great about... More

One of the few restaurants that serves butternut squash ravioli....they serve it YEAR ROUND! Eggplant parmesan is excellent. Huge selection of wine, pizzas are excellent as well. By far one of the best tiramisus we have ever had. Always love coming here to visit Mario and Ginger!

First off, having to wait 20 minutes to be seated when we had made a reservation is unconscionable. Then, the food. Very average. We started with a small cheese pizza...lots of cheese, but very little sauce, and the crust was soggy. Entrees: The eggplant was very good. It was served with a side of pasta in marinara. And for some... More

The food here is always good. Mario, the owner is from Puglia, Italy. His recipes are genuine Old Country. Service is friendly, and prompt. Mario's wife Ginger, is a very clever decorator, and has created a pleasant, and relaxing atmosphere. Try Wednesday evening, when all wines are 1/2price. They also have a delightful wine bar, for a drink, or light... More

I love Vincitorio's, the food is fabulous, the quality never changes. Service has always been great. We took relatives from out of town there, thirteen of us and we had a fun time. I didn't hear any complaints. Ginger and Mario are always friendly, they gave me a bag of corks for my daughter's wedding decore. I've never had the... More

PROS: - Great pasta, all fresh ingredients, cooked just right, the Italian way. Same for appetizers: we tried the Italian wedding soup and Mussels and Clams in a tomatoes broth, both delicious. Canolli made in house, crispy and nice but overwhelmed by large amounts of whipped cream - Large servings, entrees come with choice of soup if the day or... More

Went there for lunch w/my boyfriend and there was only one other couple, so why did we have to wait to be seated? Oh because the hostess was busy chatting. The cook let her know we were standing there. We ordered the Italian Wedding soup and it was a bit watery but otherwise okay. This is where they lose points... More

We were looking for another restaurant located on Elliot Rd (and couldn't find it). We turned into this complex -- people were lined up waiting to get a table at Vincitorio's (usually a good sign). Waiting 20-30 minutes for a table was a good decision. The food was very good (and we have enough leftovers for an excellent snack tomorrow!
