Excellent Italian Food

Excellent food all around. Everything on the menu is good, fresh, and delicious. Parking can be a problem, especially on a weekend or whenever a big event is around. The pesto sauce is particularly good.

if you go to an Italian restaurant and they serve your bread with very low quality olive oil, that should be your first sign your food is also likely to be poor quality. if the chef does not care about the oil quality, they are likely not to care about the food quality. let me first say that i know...

We had heard a lot about Vincenzo's and decided to try it out one night prior to a play at ACT. First thing I noticed was a soured water smell as I walked in. It never left. Not sure what it was but it made me feel like the place wasn't clean. The wine selection was very good but he... More

I have come here several times with friends of mine, each time was a joy to behold. The building is older, and split into two levels, seeing as i rather enjoy the ambiance of the bar downstairs we usually eat there. They make it a point to have a piano available and usually have a musician on hand most nights... More

We have eaten dinner here twice. It is a very cozy atmosphere with decent food. Service was average but we love the upstairs. I would go back in a heart beat and love the at home cottage feel. I have had the salmon and pasta dishes as well as gnochi all very good.

Very old building which seemed cozy enough. Service was so so. We had to add salt and pepper to the olive oil dip to give the bread enough flavor. My husband had the beef carpaccio to start, which was not noteworthy. We ordered Alfredo and a chicken dish. My Alfredo smelled strongly of burnt garlic and tasted close to the... More

Don't pass up this place up. There are many places to eat at in Asheville, this place offers the best authentic Italian food hands down. The Lasagna is a must, not to mention the Formaggi starter. Nice ambiance. I'll be back for sure!!!
