True authentic Italian - the real deal!

This place is a glimpse into Italy. Not only is the food outstanding the staff is awesome. Their house bread and marinara are out of this world. Shrimp with Vodka cream sauce is my favorite!

Fresh salads, good entree and bread. Nice wine selection. Slow service and our waitress, though very pleasant, needed to improve her hygiene.

This was one of the best restaurant meals we've enjoyed for many a year. Anna was a friendly and knowledgeable waitress. She suggested a Chianti wine which was the best I've ever tasted - even with its very reasonable price. The food was excellent too. Just all-round great. The decor is Italian cafe. Very comfortable and homely. This will be... More

Outstanding authentic Italian food, excellent wines and bar, perfect service and a great ambiance. Best place for Italian food in the entire Elsinore/Temecula Valley area. Try their homemade desserts and pizzas too. Our favorite restaurant close to home, by far. Frank Cimino

The restaurant is in Walmart strip mall. It is an excellent Italian restaurant. Salad and garlic bread are very good. Each of us had a pasta dish. Both were excellent and the portions are large. Save room for dessert or take it home. Desserts all looked delicious and some are homemade. When in the area again we will definitely go... More

We always reccommend Vincenzo's to all our friends. On special and not so special occasions that's where we prefer to go for Italian food. The portions are always generous. The desserts are fabuloso! The service is excellent. It's just plain good. Multo Benne! Margie & Don Sparks
