I got take out from here yesterday, and although it was a lovely place, and the staff I encountered were very pleasant and courteous, I can only give 3 stars as my baked ravioli was average. I come from a really Italian neighborhood and the food is fantastic where I live, but here, average, and pricey. The ravioli was covered... More

Met some friends here in December for drinks and appetizers. This was my first time at a Vincent's, even though I grew up in the city. We got there early & waited at the bar for our friends. Once we put our names in, we were seated within 15 minutes. They first put us at a table by the door... More

I was with a friend 12/18 and she took me to this place for lunch. Our server was Rick who made the experience absolutely fantastic. He made recommendations to what to order and he was right on the money. Food was great (gnocchi). Dessert was fabulous (crime brûlée). Finished with specialty coffee. Hmm hmmm good

Vincent's never slows down. 25 minute wait for a table on a MONDAY night turns into an hour plus. Ive been coming here since Anthony and Bobby were waiters and the restaurant was in a smaller store down the strip. The portions have gotten smaller, the prices have gone up, the waitstaff turnover is incredible. The noise is intolerable, the... More

It was my first time there and it was packed, but the smells were fantastic. It took a while to get in and it was worth the wait. The food was really good , the service was ok . When the server never brought back my doggie bag I asked him and he made me feel like I was a... More

First time visit. Dec. 26th. The place was slammed. People battling to get in and out of the front door. To keep the peace they had pizza at the hostess stand to enjoy while you waited. After a short wait for a bar seat Crystal quickly had a drink in my hand. Ordered fried mozzarella and frutti di mare. They... More

I was recently in Italy for a month and skeptical about eating Italian food back home. However this restauraunt was just as good as food in Italy definitely the best Italian food I have had in the usa. The mild sauce is on the sweet side and so delicious.

Stopped in rather on the fly hoping for a simple Italian dish. This restaurant has been in business since 1904 in Little Italy and now in Carl place you have the opportunity to experience this wonderful Italian cuisine. We shared an antipasto which was outstanding, the olive oil is outstanding and like butter. Try the shrimp Parmesan it is to... More

Been dining here well over 25 years. Food is always very good, never left this place hungry. Very busy at times so expect to wait. Staff is always friendly and prompt service is usually the case. Always find the food very fresh and seafood cooked properly. Getting hungry thinking about it. Give it a try.

Thank vrodusa
