If great Italian food is what you're looking for, this is one of the few spots in NOLA you can find it. Growing up with grandparents who emigrated from Sicily, I had the pleasure of eating amazing homemade Italian food throughout my youth. I love that I can go here and get pasta that is cooked perfectly with a sauce... More

This is neighborhood restaurant that many people come to in order to eat great Italian food. Atmosphere is very casual and the wait staff is excellent.

Have been there numerous times because it is mostly dependable. Should be a lot better given how long its been open and ex-chef now has his own restaurant around the corner. Ordinary old-school Italian menu and wine list, but nothing exciting or remarkable. Decent but not great. Not much else to say

My only complaint is the system does not allow me to give them a sixth or seventh star! They are just that damn good! Ate here last night with my wife's family (It was her sisters birthday) and Nathan was our waiter. Hands down he was absolutely outstanding. His assistant was a young blond boy (I'm 63 so everyone under... More

If you're looking for a romantic dinner, or a great place to take the family, Vincent's fits both descriptions, and most importantly, has GREAT good. Vincent the owner is usually on site and will pass by your table and say hello. Don't miss THE place to have a great dinner when you're in the mood for Italian good.

Starry, starry night Paint your palette blue and gray Look out on a summer's day With eyes that know the darkness in my soul Shadows on the hills Sketch the trees and the daffodils Catch the breeze and the winter chills In colors on the snowy linen land Now, I understand, what you tried to say to me And how...

First time visiting, and found the atmosphere cozy and quiet. Our table was set nicely, and was waited on quickly. The waiter recommended trying the fried Eggplant with lump crab meat covered with a light red sauce appetizer. We ordered this and was very delighted with the taste, and would recommend it. Highly recommend the Cannelloni, one of the house... More

This restaurant is a little piece of Italy - from the little guy meeting you at the door to the pistachio ice cream at dessert. Eggplant parmesan met expectations and we really enjoyed the bread sticks that adorn every table. The restaurant is sort of hidden behind Pelican Point Car Wash, but worth the time to find and dine.

This is another one of those venerable New Orleans establishments that it is so well hidden, it is patronized primarily by locals. This traditional Italian restaurant serves some of the best Sicilian food ever to find its way to America. the Artichoke Vincent and Rose of Italy appetizers should not be missed.

The atmosphere is cozy, the tables are close to each other. The waiter was more helpful to make suggestions, selling items. The recommended wine was a flat overpriced red. The entrees tasted "ok", americanized italian dishes. Given the large number of competing restaurants in the area, it will be some time before I come back.

Thank Michiel T
