  • "We have been going to Vincenzo's for 25 years and it is a great place for special occasions. It is amazing that the staff turnover has not impacted the great food and wonderful service. We will be back1"

  • "My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here, great service even better food. I love how they top off your food by warming and plating your food over an open flame at the table. We had the best desert, I have no words for how good it was."
    Dined on 8/25/2014
  • "The service provided by the staff was superb. Meals were final prepared at the table side, ensuring they were hot, drinks were always full, and you never had to wait for anything."

  • "Wonderful everything. Wish we could gave heard the music in the dining room. Great wine recommendation."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "The service was amazing and the food was very good. I'm just lost as to why people would bring a baby and a toddler to a fine dining place. Please have some consideration for those who are spending much hard earned money for a special occasion. Not the restaurants fault and would recommend this place."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "Good food; moderate service; seemed a bit pricey (over $700 with gratuity for 5 people)."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Vincenzo's is one of our favorite special occasion restaurants, or just for when we'll be downtown for a concert or show. Vincenzo himself always walks around greeting all the guests, and he sometimes assists with preparing the food tableside! It's always a treat to eat there, and the staff treats you with respect and like family."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Great experience here and loved everything about our evening. We enjoyed the fantastic selections made by the chef especially for us which added to the overall experience. We always have a great time here and will continue to be patrons from many years to come."

  • "Wonderful. We were late getting in after a wet day at the PGA. Steve quickly noticed our desire to get in and get out without fuss. The best part, we fussed and on his suggestions said what we wanted and it came out of the kitchen. How many places do you know where you just say what you're hungry for and out it comes. Perfect all around."

  • "Food, service and ambience add up to make it one of my favorites. Owner is friendly and most servers are excellent. I used to always have risotto and one of the veal dishes but this time ventured into the pastas and was delighted. Discovered that you can have a split dessert if you can't make up your mind. The pistachio Herde cake and a coconut cake were both delicious."

  • "Awesome food, Pappy Van Winkle in stock and Vincenzo himself serving our food!!! A+++++"

  • "We had our reservations for a Saturday night. The atmosphere was perfect for our anniversary. Rick and Adam were our servers. We had a special request for something off menu. They did a fantastic job! Presentation for dinner, & dessert, was fabulous. Rick made us bananas foster as a special. As we were leaving, we stopped to inform manager about our excellent meal. He stopped eating his meal to continue to talking with us. As we were leaving, severe thunderstorms were in the area. Strong winds and rain. The manager took us back inside and called us a cab. Then, he escorted us with umbrella to cab. I imagine this is where we will spend future anniversaries."

  • "Excellent experience!! I would suggest this restaurant to others who are looking for a nice, quiet dining experience. The best thing, there were no children in the dining room."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "From the greeting to the goodbye, this long-time Louisville eatery does not disappoint. No special request goes without consideration; thoughtful and graceful service and food that is out of this world, all equal Vincenzo's. Want an appetizer as a entree? No problem. Want to savor a cup of rich coffee for 30 minutes after dinner? No problem. Want to talk with the chef about the creation of the night? No problem. Make a reservation. Sit back. Enjoy."

  • "My husband and I went to Vincenzo's with my parents to celebrate their 51st anniversary and our 17th anniversary. The bartender greeted us as soon as we walked in and wished us happy anniversary. The owner and the head chef came by our table numerous times throughout the dinner. The wait staff was very attentive, professional and polite. The food was amazing! The experience from the time we entered until the time we left the restaurant was wonderful."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Vincenzo's is one of my favorite, special occasion restaurants to visit. The food was delicious, and the service couldn't have been better. Recommendations were made by the wait staff and everything was explained perfectly, so I knew exactly what each dish consisted of. I will definitely return in the future."

  • "I have had a better experience at Texas Roadhouse. I ordered the filet rare. Upon arrival I would say the steak was cooked medium, Pink center with brown edges. When I brought it to the attention of a manager, after he flipped a dirty steak knife onto my Louis Vuitton and almost onto my toe, he had me cut into the center with a butter knife and argued that it was cooked correctly and walked away. When requesting another knife, the assistant informed me he had already brought me one. My husbands napkin was taken three times, bot sure the logic in that. When my uneaten steak was taken away, I was asked how everything was and again mentioned the steak was not cooked correctly yet the $40 charge was still on my bill."

  • "We were celebrating my husbands birthday and were visiting from out of town. Get the Caesar salad- you can split it, and they make the dressing at your table. Excellent unique flavor. Service was excellent but I would not say it was genuine. The veal was amazing. Piano player was a nice touch but could not hear it from the dining room. Nice decor, food presentation, and atmosphere. Worth the money for a special occasion."

They also graciously gifted us with an anniversary dessert because they heard it was our anniversary. We will definitely be returning customers. My complements to the chef. The food was amazing. My husband even at some fresh salmon!!"

  • " If you want a fancy setting for a special occasion, this is a very impressive restaurant with attentive servers. My friend and I each ordered appetizers for $15 each which consisted of 2 bites! The entree was delicious and slightly more substantial. The desserts were amazing. Bottom line: Vincenzo's is elegant and overpriced."

  • "My husband surprised me with a trip into Louisville for the Lionel Ritchie concert. We had hoped to have dinner in an intimate downtown restaurant we discovered nearly 20 years ago but it isn't there anymore. I wanted Italian food, and our hotel manager recommended Vincenzo's. What an outstanding evening !!!! The food; the personal attentiveness of the staff and the special treat of having Vincenzo himself, prepare our food tableside! We will recommend this restaurant and we WILL be back!"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "The food and service was awesome!! My husband and I are trying new places and I bought a groupon to try this restaurant. We live in Southern Indiana and I personally hate crossing the bridge. But Vincenzo's was well worth it! We were treated as special guests and the owner came to our table and welcomed us. I can't even begin to describe how good our food was. . .mouthwatering! We had a very good bottle of wine and we loved the ambiance of the meal being finished table side. We will definitely be visiting again. Next time we want to try the theatre menu."

  • "The prime steak we ordered was tuff! We picked a 100.00 bottle of wine on the menu it states a specific year.. When brought to the table it was a much newer year.. So they tried to push off a not so good year for the same price as the other that is listed on the menu.. Very disappointing since we have been before.. We will not be returning"
