“busy, delicious = GO OFTEN!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Gourmet deli!!!
This is not for the faint of heart- incredible sandwiches for 4.99. Sushi made to order.
The desserts (READ: CANNOLI LOVE!!) and cheesecakes, sweets and tarts are lovely to see, and we make a point of trying something new every time.
Fresh bread and lunches to go. New location is perfect, plenty of parking, open and welcoming.
I originally found this treasure, via the Globe and Mail- an article describing cheese only found at select stores. It was a treasure of fresh produce and large variety of cheese and meat.
Organic oils, antipasto, olives the list goes on! Try the creamy Canadian Feta in your next potato salad!!!!!!!
This shop is always busy, the prices are competitive and the quality has NEVER disappointed. Simply put, 5*****

“A little taste of Italy”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

I have gone to Vincenzos for my weekly fix for many years, at both the old and new locations.
The atmosphere is cool and often there is uplifting fabulous music playing as you shop. I go for the variety of delicious breads and bagels, quality grain/mushroom/leafy salads and fresh herbs. I particularly like that the fresh herbs are packaged in smaller, less expensive bunches so I can choose a few different kinds and not waste as much. There are always customers in line for fresh deli meat and sandwiches; willing to wait longer for the freshness and variety of toppings. There is now a high quality/organic fresh meat and seafood counter. Impressive olive bar and a beautiful dessert counter. Awesome capanota dips and huge variety of quality crackers. Huge variety of everything. Special events and food tastings. Tables on one side if you wish to eat in. A few tables outside too in a very attractive modern part of town near a few great shops and unique restaurants/cafes. Excellent website including daily hot takeout menu. If I had to comment on anything negative, I’d be nitpicking - therefore, I have nothing but good things to say about Vincenzos.

“Deli delight”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Get the sandwich of your dreams for $4.99. Toppings and alot of fresh deli meats you will find at this busy lunch place. Interesting desserts and bakery items, my favourite is the Ace onion bread. Simply delish! The eating area is crowded and not very well kept for such a busy place, could use more people to keep the place tidy and organized. Love the Indian take out items from Vijays as well as the garlic expressions dressing from the USA. Recently purchased a Peugeot peppermill and loved it! So much to see and taste....love it!

“Great Grocery Store”
Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

Vincenzo's is a great gourmet grocery store where you can pick up some fantastic food!
The sandwich counter is always a favourite as is the pastery counter. They offer extras like layering the deli meat that's cut and putting paper between each piece of cheese that's sliced.
