“Old School Italian Restaurant. Recommended!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

If you are middle aged (Boomer/ Gen Xer) like this reviewer, you will love this "old school' Italian restaurant in West Sacramento/ close to downtown (3 miles?). Food was very good overall, large portions and reasonably priced. Decore very 1970's and will not impress if you're looking for 2013 'look & feel' or being trendy. If however, you fondly remember good Italian restaurants from your youth and food as it was when you dined with your parents a few decades ago you'll love a visit to Vince's in West Sac. A bit of enjoyable time travel! Staff were VERY friendly and efficient, food very good and ambiance offered an enjoyable visit back to circa 1975. Highly recommended! Enjoy and don't worry about impressing others or being trendy! Food and great vibe makes the visit worthwhile.

“Good Italian Food in West Sac”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

It was a little hole in the wall, but had good food and very good friendly service. I had the Spaghetti and Meatballs and it was good. Hearty Portion. The lady at my hotel recommended this place. I enjoyed it and would go back next time I stay in that area.

“Go NAVY, Beat ARMY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Three drenching wet and windy storms, created by a Pineapple Express, blew into Sacramento for the annual California International Marathon. The runners from the U.S. Naval Academy flew from Annapolis to participate in this prestigious event. Vince's arranged in advance a specially priced menu full of carbs the night before, Throughout the packed restaurants, hoots and cheers for the Midshipmen were shouted. "Thank you for your service to our country!" is something the 99 percenters will never hear.

“A traditional hole in the wall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Good pasta dishes with a bar type atmosphere. Good steak sandwich and not bad for the pocket book. This has become a regular for me.
