Make sure to make a reservation because it is small and a little cramped. I had some of the freshest, best pasta I have had in a very long time.
During our week long stay in Santa Monica we chose to eat here twice because the Vincenzo Ristorante is that good! Great selection of dishes, wines, authentic taste, not too heavy, with wonderful specials and a quiet lovely small town atmosphere which makes you feel at home.

We have driven by here countless times and quite frankly did not realize that this was a separate restaurant.

The only table we were "allowed" to... More
