I totally agree with Freddy's review in every thing he said including the comment that the chef is deluded! Could not agree more! We were there on adifferent evening and I would have to say this is the worst restaurant I have ever eaten at including basic cafes. I have eaten at top restaurants all over the world and if Vincenzos aspires to be a top restaurant for Adelaide the chef needs help.... and needs to attend cooking classes . I suggest the chef visits and learns from the chefs at Villa d' Este in Cernobbio in Lake Como Italy.The food there is Italian and exquisite. Not giving out menus is terrible and the waitress saying the chef cooks what he feels like is apalling! Sounds like he serves up the same thing each night The risotto we had was uncooked, surprising to find since the chef is Italian! I have cooked better risotto dozens of times following a recipe book! Serving meat on a platter to be eaten with fingers is also apalling! One would expect this on a picnic in a field not in a restaurant claiiming to be one of the best! I have also never experienced being brought wine without being shown the bottle to what I am drinking! For all I know it could have been cast wine! Serving the wine in fancy glass decanters might look impressive but I would like to see and know what I'm drinking straight from the bottle to the glass! The waitress insulted us by saying we did not appreciate the style the chef was presenting but I'm sorry.... serving inedible food in all courses is the sign of a bad cook not a new style! If you look at the top cafes and restaurants in Adelaide you will see they are always packed with people because the food is good! If Vincenzos was a good restaurant they would be booked out weeks in advance! They are not... hardly anyone else was in the place which indicates their reputation for good food has yet to be achieved! My guess is that unless the chef has a wake up call soon the place will close. Vincenzos would be packed if they cooked good quality Italian food at reasonable prices. Very, very disappointing and overpriced
