I had lunch at their Carl Place restaurant today. I ordered the Chicken Francese and penne with red sauce. My friend ordered a large salad. She was happy with her salad, but I have to complain about my meal. The chicken was entirely over cooked...More

My New Hampshire Clam Chowder was delicious. Large enough for a main meal. My wife was very pleased with the house pasta. Meals are very tasty and very large. Large enough that you will take away a Doggy bag for tomorrow.

Vincent's is an excellent Italian restaurant hidden away in a corner next to Toy'r Us. We've seen it for years but never thought about going in util now. The inside is much bigger than one would expect from looking at the front. Italian/American music is...More

NEVER a disappointing meal. Especially busy on weekends. Food is delicious and always served hot. Every now and then I am disappointed with the overcooking of the pasta. Potions are HUGE and can be shared! Enjoy!

I come to Mineola frequently for business and my first stop is always Vincent's. The food is amazing and wait staff has always been exceptionally nice. Yes, it is noisy but that is part of the appeal. It really makes you feel like you are...More

It may look like any other strip mall, but the moment you set foot inside you realize this is the real deal. The place is always packed so have some patience as the wait can be 45 mins. It's worth the wait however. Huge plates...More

Came for scugiis and was disappointed. The place is very noisy, the service was efficient and cordial, the food was lacking in presentation, taste, and overpriced for what they served you. Will not be back.
