After all the great reviews on tripadvisor we had high hopes and they did not disappoint. We did have the table side Caesar and it was great. My husband had the duck and raved about it. I had veal with shrimp and crab and it was also delicious. The owner was very pleasant and put on quite a show flipping... More

The current Vincente's is the third incarnation of the same restaurant. It started and prospered some 40 years ago in Little Italy. It then moved in an elegant Mall in North Wilmington and finally settled at its present location. Being Italian born, I am a bit leery of so-called Italian restaurants because I am usually disappointed. I went to Vincente's... More

What can I say Vincente's rocks!! Best in everything they do. Food=10,Service=10, Atmosphere=10. It was my wife's birthday and she cannot stop talking about the experience. Dan the man, Amanda the amazing and Tom the terrific made my party of six enjoy the evening beyond the norm. If you decide to go and try Vincente's, make sure you do the... More

Simple strip center across from the All Saints Cemetery - Not a likely place for an excellent restaurant. It has been in this location for about 4 to five years. Prior to that it was in three other locations. The same family has owned and operated this fine dining establishment for all of this time - probably over 40 years.... More

Keep up with me here. Walked in for the first time and was treated like a stranger. Didn't feel very comfortable. Eventually others came to the bar and it was more friendly. Bar tender was a bit sluggish though. Cocktails were very under poured for the price. Food was decent, but again a bit over priced. Tableside ceaser was pretty... More

Recently went to Vincente's. Had not been in years. "You get a salad with the meal" was followed by a tableside demo of Caesar Salad for 2. Charged $18.00!!! Strong dressing! Should have been informed ahead of time. Sodas refilled and charged for each!

Everything, including the pasta, is freshly prepared in house from fresh ingredients. The kitchen will make anything the customer would like of they have the ingredients. Recommended: salads, any steak, any of the veal (they can produce an infinite variety of them!), and any pasta. Deserts are also made to order. If only the wines matched the food. The list... More

Yesterday was my wife's birthday, as a gift my daughter invited us to dinner. It was truly an outstanding meal. I found the ambiance to be very relaxing, the service was excellent, and the meal was great. We had the Caesar Salad which in my opinion was the best I have ever had! The entrees, soft shell crabs and the... More

I had a very difficult time choosing from the menu; it is preferable if pictures were added. Beyond that difficulty, everything was well. Great service. I ordered Pasta La Roma and I really enjoyed it; the angel hair pasta truly lives up to its name. Caesar's salad came as a side to my pasta and they did it side table.... More

Our last visit was not good. We wanted to give them another chance. BAD IDEA! My small plate of veal piccata was overcooked, tough and rubbery. Our stuffed flounder was from frozen, like the kind you buy in the supermarket. Tasted fishy too! Side dishes were no better. My spaghetti aioli was so oily, it was drenched in oil. The... More
