I haven't been here in a few years. Was really looking forward to having some good Italian food. When we came in there was only one table who left quickly. 4 more people arrived sitting at 2 tables. The bread was good. We shared a calamari which was really good. Then it all went down hill. After finishing the app... More

My cousins and I were looking for a new place to try and we stumbled upon Vincent's. First of all our waiters was practically the only employee working. He was waiting tables, mixing drinks, and bussing tables while everyone else just watched him. My chicken was raw and their sauce was too spicy. I will never ever ever eat there... More

Place has been renovated since Sandy but still pretty much the same. Good standard Italian fare great chicken parm and shrimp be careful when ordering the kind of sauce sweet is mild but medium and hot are both hot. Atmosphere not great but good wine and friendly service good neighborhood place also small catering room has been added

We stopped by Vincent's because Gino's was packed considering its the day b4 Mothers Day, Vincent's accommodated us. It was packed but I felt that it was a tad disorganized and left us unattended without water and bread to feed the hunger. I had penne a la vodka and it was okay. It would have been nice if I was...

The food is great at Vincent's. The fried calamari is so crispy and the raw clams so fresh. Their Manhattan clam chowder is stocked with clams. Their veal, extremely tender. Their wait staff is very friendly. Definitely a delicious stop if your in the neighborhood.

My Friends took me there straight out The Hospital! 1dozen Little Necks, a Dozen Baked Clams and we were off to the races! We had a Party of 4. I ordered Shrimp Frav Dealvo. My friends order mussels, shrimp balls, calamari and scungelli! And lots of Pasta! Ended with cannoli and tartufo! Everything was Great!
