“Nice food - Great owner”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Such a nice, intimate restaurant. Ate here after a long day at Six Flags and my wife and I were extremely impressed by the service and quality of food. Vincenzo himself roams the restaurant and is extremely amiable and friendly, making sure you are enjoying the food and service. He seems extremely passionate about the quality of the food and accommodating to any dietary requests. The desserts were simply out of this world.

“Really wonderful”
Reviewed May 9, 2012 via mobile

We have enjoyed dinner several times. We are blown away at the welcome we have always received when we came with our well behaved two year old grandson. The staff was welcoming and the meal was always special. We applaud the wonderful food and the care the owner and staff gave to us. This restaurant is a gem.

“Too much for too little”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

Unfortunately I had heard rave reviews about this small restaurant located on the west end of trendy Montana Ave.
The restaurant was empty except for 1 table, as we were walk-ins without a reservation, we didn't expect the best table, however we were denied every table that we requested (In an empty restaurant!). The only table we were "allowed" to have was near the kitchen and near the waitstaff station.
The food was delicious but it was very hard to get past the idea that there were so many EMPTY tables, which remained empty until we finished our meal. The staff (owner) acted like they were doing us a big favor. Good food spoiled by rude staff.

“Try the Shrimp Vincenzo!”
Reviewed September 14, 2011

Very nice, small Italian restaurant on Montana. The Shrimp Vincenzo is absolutely delicious and the ambiance is very nice. Everything from a cozy date night to a meal with friends. Cant go wrong here.
