OMG Great -- Better than Great

As a food snob I was hoping for the experience we had but was a little cautious. We had reservations for 7 pm on 12/23/15 -- we all ordered something different and everyone raved about how delicious their food was. My all time favorite is the Veal Piccata with oglio olio -- Well knock me off my... read more

Service was good. Food was ok. Had veal marshals. Found the gravy too salty for my taste. Others had stuffed shrimp and catfish with no complaints. Expected better. Will try again.

This place makes no apology for being the type of Italian trattoria Tony Soprano would enjoy. All your all time favorites are here. I don't remember if they serve clams in white or red sauce but they make up for the clams in astonishing oyster dishes. The red gravy is authentic Sicilian: thick and sweet. Instead of Italian dressing on... More

Delicious! Friends and I went out here and the food was delicious. We will return to this restaurant - try the crab and Corn bisque!

Vincent's is always very consistent. His tomato "gravy" is superb, portions are very adequate, service is very good. It's a relaxing experience.

This cozy neighborhood restaurant transports your tastebuds to Italy. The veal piccata is savory and served with a delicious salad. Close your eyes for a second to be in Rome! The limoncello gelato for dessert is perfect. All the veal and seafood entrees are superb.

Vincent's in Metairie is a good place to get Italian cuisine. The ambiance is very nice. The speed of service is good. The Veal Marsala is excellent. The Veal Picatta is just so so... The veal was dry and the sauce was very heavy. Vincent's prices are reasonable.

Vincent's has incredible atmosphere and is consistently good. The chicken or veal parmesan is our favorite dish and the kids live the bread sticks. It is a warm and inviting atmosphere.

I had the lasagna and my husband had the cantaloni. The food was excellent. The owner Vincent came over several times to make sure we had everything that we needed and asked if there was anything that he could get us. Very personal service. Will be going back again before we leave to head home.

food was OK. Waiter tried to remember each of our orders for party of 6 but messed up several things. Foolish! Plus he would constantly interrupt and start speaking to us when he was 6-8 feet away. I was a waiter for 7 years so I know was is good service and what is sloppy. Not in any big rush... More
