It was our last night in Absecon, and we had seen the billboard advertising Vincenzo's. We were in the mood for Italian seafood, so we went here. Are we glad we did! The bread and olive dip were awesome! The crusty, seeded bread came out piping hot....crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Their house dressing was very... More

Every meal I have ordered has been out of this world. Every employee is friendly and the service is quick. I had my son's 21st birthday dinner there and they were so accommodating. The desserts there are to die for.

went there for the first time after passing by many times. worth the stop. great service, excellent food quality, taste and value. Large portions at very reasonable prices. BYOB even makes it a better value. Very nice building as well, not very noisy even when crowded thanks to smart use of acoustic ceiling tiles. will definitely go back.

I thought Vincenzo's was really good however out appetizer was not. We ordered the antipasto platter for two. I didn't like the pitted olives and the prosciutto was very fatty and cut too thick. You couldn't even chew it. For my main dish I ordered Penni Vodka with chicken which was very good and my boyfriend got the ravioli with... More

We were invited to Vincenzo's Restaurant by friends, who told us that we were in for a treat - that the food is really delicious. It is located in an unassuming little strip store area, although the restaurant's facade is very nice looking. We made reservations and when we arrived, we did not have a wait. The menu had plenty...

We've visited this restaurant about 5 times and had excellent food at times and average food at others. I had a delicious veal marsala dish a few months ago but when we returned recently, it was not nearly as good. Unsure if we will chance it again.

From someone out of state, we chose this for convenience and randomization. I've eaten at many Italian restaurants and being from the Akron area, always a fan of Luigi's. It is actually my favorite restaurant. I never thought I would find a restaurant that is better, but then I experienced Vincenzo's. We ordered spaghetti and meatballs and a calzone. All... More

Couple of years ago we were looking for a restaurant in Atlantic City area. We decided to try Vincenzo's Ristorante in Smithville, NJ. We didn't know what do expect. Amazingly the place was great. It's very clean. Service and staff was wonderful. Food was great. Each time we went back we ordered something different and it always was amazing. For... More
