    M th wife and I recently moved to Louisville and I celebrated my birthday two weeks ago. Due to weather I postponed my visit to Vincentos but it was worth the wait. The table side service was wonderful and the food incredible. We had the veal and pork loin. It was so good we changed our Thanksgiving menu. We are already planning our next visit with family. We'll be asking for Stephen again as well. Bon Appetite!

    I have been to Vincenzo's numerous times. Always pleased. This was totally different. The service was terrible. The waiter had too many tables -- forgot one of the drinks we had ordered - took at least 30 minutes before our salads came out. You don't expect this kind of service when you are paying this kind of money. A true disappointment. However, once my salmon came, it was delicious but overall to spend $100 for 2 it was not a good experience.

    As soon as I walked in Vincenzo him self greeted me at my table. The wait staff were prompt, knowledgeable, personable and attentive. The evening specials were outstanding including the antipasto appetizer. The tableside food preparation was impressive. Quiet setting, but lively with the sounds of patrons enjoying an exquisite dining experience. I was looking forward to the table side violin music but I was there on piano night which was delightful. Go if you haven't been! See you there as I will become a more regular guest.

    Dined on 11/8/2014
    There was no communication regarding the dishes or what what comes with them. My husband and I shared an appetizer, carciofini marini, and received one 1-inch artichoke bottom each. We paid $14 for those. Because of literally no communication from the server, I did not get a salad. When everyone else's salads came, I realized I apparently got the pathetic appetizer in place of the salad. We were not told what sides come with our entree. I finally asked and the explanation was so vague, I still didn't know after I asked. I ordered the fillet ripieno which was outstanding, but the sides were tiny and pathetic. I was hungry and angry when I left. I won't be back and I will not recommend this place. I would rather go to Fazoli's.

    I was part of a small group that dined here recently. Some of us had dined here previously, and we were all looking forward to a great pre downtown event dinner. We arrived two hours before our event and notified our server and others of our timetable. However, an hour and forty minutes later, our entrees had still not been served. We had to gulp down our dinner as we begged for our bills. During our dinner, our waiter was mostly AWOL even though the water glass filler was always present. Several in our group were very pleased with the food, however several were disappointed considering the extremely high prices. None of us will return as there are dozens of great restaurants in Louisville the appreciate your business

Veal was great and the Almond Joy dessert is to die for! Then to top it off was Sir Paul himself! This was a check off my bucket list!

    This was our first visit to Vincenzo's and will absolutely be back. The food was outstanding as was the service. The food is prepared and plated table side which was a nice surprise. Wait staff was extremely knowledgeable about everything on the menu. Huge wine and custom made spirit list. The beer list was less than impressive I would have expected more craft brews/ local beers for this type of restaurant which wasn't a huge deal however. The head chef personally stopped by every table to ensure everything was to his standards. Again amazing food and amazing service. We will be back!

    We came here for my birthday. Our server was Steve and his helper was Casey (I think). Both were very attentive. We both ordered Caeser salads that were outstanding, as always. We also ordered "appetizer portion" entrees which ended up to be more than expected. That's ok because it made a great lunch for the next day. And as a surprise, Casey brought out a "on the house" birthday dessert which was plenty for 2 people to eat. Wine, dinner and dessert at a great restaurant...what more could I have asked for!

    Great food, well prepared and presented. Noise level from piano made talking difficult if not impossible. Service was slow and somewhat inattentive. Water level was not maintained and dishes were not cleared immediately after the food had been consumed. They were allowed to sit for an uncomfortable period of time.

    I had the fettuccine with shrimp and crab meat. It had a white wine and olive oil sauce that tasted very similar to a Healthy Choice meal I have had in the past. It was a good flavor for a frozen meal, but it didn't fit the upscale Italian I was expecting.

    Being out-of-towners, we'd heard great things about this place. True to form, it was nearly perfect, save for the main course, which was OK, but not spectacular. Essentially, our veal dishes were both smothered in a overpowering and very thick tomato sauce that really detracted from the flavor of the veal. Maybe our bad for our menu choices, but still, it was not what we'd hoped for. Otherwise, excellent service. A great bottle of wine from an exceptional wine list. Table side prep of the apps (which would have been the perfect main dish). Delicious desert. In the end, next time we're in Louisville, we will find somewhere else to spend $250 on dinner.

    This is my husband and I's second time here. The wine was excellent and the service impeccable. Our waiter never rushed us. Let us take our time deciding what to order and answered our numerous questions. My husband had the Salmon with a champagne sauce and I had the Marscapone Cheese stuffed Ravioli with chicken/mushroom/spinach cream sauce. We finished with a chocolate souffle. The food here is so good it is truly indescribable. We will be going again!
