  • "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."

  • "Amazing restaurant and friendly staff. They were very patient as this was our first time there and wasn't sure what to order. 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!!"

  • "Mediocre expensive food, though I realize we were paying mostly for the wait staff, not the food"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • " 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!"

  • "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"

  • "We have dined at Vincenzo's too many times to count over the years -- lots of birthday, anniversary, and pre-show dining. We have only been disappointed twice and once was last night. The service was excellent, but I ordered capellini pasta with marinara sauce and lobster (a modification of a dish on the menu). The marinara sauce was so spicy hot that my lips were burning. I was very surprised, as I have had this prepared tableside by Agostino Gabrielle and it was like sauce just picked from the garden. In addition to the sauce being too spicy, the broiled lobster tail was just tossed on the plate -- not even right side up. It was very unattractive. My husband ordered Crepes Agostino and he noted that the sauce was very spicy. Too bad."

  • "This was our second time to dine at Vincenzo's. The food was amazing, the wait staff was attentive without being bothersome, the atmosphere is truly nice. I wish we could dine here more often. It is no wonder why this is one of the highest rated and respected restaurants in the the city. I would highly recommend getting the groupon when you see it. "

  • "Vincenzo's has been a pillar of the Louisville community for a long time. Our experience on Saturday night proved that good food and good service is what a restaurant is all about. Jonathon, the host/maitre de was wonderful making us feel welcome and at home. Our servers, Erin and Alex were great. Our entire experience was wonderful and we will be back for more good food and good service."

  • "Dinning at Vincenzo's was a wonderful experience. We have always known that it was there but never dreamed we would eat there. The service was excellent and every one was courteous especially our waitress. She helped us with the menu and with wine to drink with our dinner. Lights were low, music in the background and a corner seat made it a fabulous anniversary dinner."

  • "1st of all, My marriage has been the best ! Therefore I chose Vincnzo's for my Bride and I to celebrate. I had been there once before for a business meeting, and mentally catalogued Vincenzo's for a future personal occasion. The Filetto Di Vitello Al Madeira was exceptional, and my wife's Fettuccine Mondello was great ! Let me tell you about the wine, Garry recommended the Palermo 2011 Cabernet sauvignon, and to my wife's surprise, she put it on her "the best ever list" ever ! Consequently we purchased a bottle for later. Bonus on the Dessert, finely crafted by the kitchen ! All I can say is Bellissimo ! Additionally i would let you know we travelled from Hendersonville Nc for this occasion."

  • "The dining room was extremely warm. The staff was professional but the food was mediocre. All dishes just basically lacked flavor. Went 3 years ago and had the same experience. Thought we would try it again but it was the same experience."
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "By far the best restaurant in Louisville, Great veal dishes that none can compare with in Louisville and Southern Indiana. Fine wine list, very good appetizers and wonderful Italian staples. Their tortilines are to die for!"

  • "We came for brunch for mothers day and they employees were extremely kind. Delicious food! The only thing in would suggest is that they state the hours of the brush a little better. We were under the impressing via the website that it was over at 3 however there was still patrons arriving. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Went for Mothers Day Brunch and it was fabulous and not buffet like, more separated into stations which I loved. Brought my 1 year old and 7 year old and was even accommodating for them, they are accustomed to dining in higher end restaurants and enjoy it so they thought it was great too because they got the same top notch service and treated my older daughter like a queen. Would love to try dinner for a date night soon!!"

  • "Had a very nice anniversary dinner. We have been to Vincenzo's many times, and the experience never disappoints. Our chief server was very knowledgeable. We ordered off the menu a bit and it was wonderful. We received a lovely complimentary dessert with "Happy Anniversary" written on the plate which was so nice of them. We'll be back again!"
