    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!

The waitstaff dress in tuxedos and are truly knowledgeable and very helpful as well as attentive, there are white linens, the atmosphere is wonderful and of course the food, wine and lemoncello are exquisite!

    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.

    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.

    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.
