“Great italian food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2010

Vince's is consistently good at what they do, serving great Italian food at a decent price. For lunch, I stop in for their lunch specials, most under $10.00. The portions are decent and the pasta is done right, perfect al dente! The veggie minstrone soup is always flavorful and a soup and salad combo is always great for a lite lunch. The pizza is first rate, a hand crafted (as opposed to hand made ala Domino's) pie with a crisp crust on the edges and a great chewy texture. The marinara sauces have a bold tomato taste with a subtle basil/oregano flavor to them. The Cabonara and Alfredo sauces are very rich and creamy, need an extra hour at the gym after eating them. Vince Mottola also offers a unique culinary tour of Italy for his regulars, we are looking forward to joining him on one of them in the near future.

“Very dissapointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2009

Had heard good things about Vince's so I decided to have lunch there one day. Food tasted like a frozen dinner, not many choices either. And all the staff stood 15ft from my table having a water-cooler chat, swearing the entire time! The only time I didn't tip.

“My favorite place for Italian by far...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2009

Outstanding food at this place. It doesn't look like it would be such an authentic Italian restaurant from the outside since it's set back from the main drag in a strip mall. But everything tastes made from scratch, the pizzas are execellent and the prices are very reasonable . They dim the lights for dinner and it creates a nice ambiance during your meal. We brought my parents in for dinner and they are pretty picky when it comes to restaurants and they really enjoyed it. Make sure to stop in for their Monday night dinner special, it's a GREAT value and you get plenty of food!
