Better than Mama's RecipeYou must try the Lasagna. The most flavorful and unique I have ever had. It had a twist of small white grapes, that added that bit of sweetness. The stuffed green peppers with sausage was amazing. Don't pass this place up.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Italian FoodPasta cooked perfect. Sauces were delicious. Too full to try any desserts.
Highly recommend.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and food.The service, including the hostesses, bar tender and waitress, was outstanding, we felt very comfortable and welcome. Good traditional Italian food is hard to find in the South making Vincenzo's a real find. We enjoyed a glass of wine at the bistro bar and then an excellent dinner in the upstairs dining room.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful findMy friend and I were attending an out of town wedding and were looking for a nice, relaxed place for dinner the night before. I made reservations and we were immediately seated when we walked in. The service was friendly and attentive. The food was fantastic. And the price was amazing. If I am ever back in the Asheville area, Vincenzo's would be high on the list for a return visit!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMNote about the noise levelNote about the noise level - there is sometimes entertainment on the 1st floor & it can be loud. If you want to avoid the noise, ask for seating in the 2nd floor dining room. We were asked about our seting preference when we arrived & our 2nd floor preference was accommodated. Beyond that, pretty much anyting on the menu is good. The oysters florentine are execellent. Another very positive thing about Vencenzo's is that many entrees are available as smaller portions. We had the oysters florentine, the seafood special - halibut and the chicken saltimbocco - all very good. If you are not within walking distance, there is free parking after 5:00 PM in a surface look nearby.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite placeVincenzo's is our absolute favorite place for special occasions (birthdays, our wedding anniversary, any special occasion/celebration). We have been coming to Vincenzo's for at least ten years.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAuthentic Italian Food!We decided to try Vincenzo's because the online menu reflected true Italian fare. Prices were reasonable, considering the top notch food they put out. You can get a "piccolo" (smaller) for about 1/2 price. We had the arancini with basil aioli (fried rice balls stuffed with provolone) as an appetizer, and ordered Cannelloni Di Vincenzo Al Forno and the Filetto Gorgonzola (which they've won awards on) for entrees. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the food, and was attentive but not overbearing. We sat upstairs in order to enjoy a more quiet table, but loved hearing the live pianist downstairs. We will DEFINITELY be back...the meal, the service, and the ambiance took us back to Italy. I would highly recommend this restaurant!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentVincenzo's is a great restaurant. The food is wonderful and the staff is very knowledgeable. We sat in the Bistro area. Although it was loud, it was a lot of fun! We will definitely go back!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMVery broad menu selections
WeVery broad menu selections
We really liked the Chicken Saltimbocca.
The smaller portion options are a great idea and our server was able to suggest several smaller portion options and appetizer combinations.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Dining on Prom Night.The visit to Vincenzo's was extravagant. The service was exponentially better than any other restaurant I've ever been in. The food was exquisite. The atmosphere was excellent, and it was set just right for the occasion. I would definitely recommend Vincenzo's to a friend.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful eveningWonderful anniversary dinner. From the moment we sat down Vincenzo''s made sure our evening was memorable. David D. was an excellent waiter and the food was delightful. Can't wait to go back.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty Italian StandardsVincenzo's serves tasty "old standards" in Italian cuisine - veal parmesan, chicken marsala, various pastas. No squid ink pasta or sauce here, just the recognizable tomato- and cream-based sauces most Americans (and especially their kids!) love, flavourfully-prepared. Several entrees are available in "piccolo" versions. These are not tiny portions, but are large enough for a hungry diner who also wants to take some home. The "regular" sized portions will serve three or four famished adults handily. Waitstaff are friendly and helpful. The wine list is a good selection of Italian, American, and other locales' reds and whites. Cheesecake is excellent.
A guitarist entertains, providing musical background to the lively chatter of happy diners.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience!Can't say enough about this restaurant.

Chose the smaller portion sizes, plenty enough. Service excellent. If you want quiet, upstairs dining is available. Definitely would go back.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMagnificoThis was the second time we have eaten at Vincenzo's and we absolutely could not wait
to get back. The dinner specials were amazing. The produce was so crisp and fresh. Their
use of herbs and spices is magnificent. This restaurant is a true find and is one of the many reasons Asheville N.C. is a must visit town.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMA very excellent dining experienceA very excellent dining experience in a very quiet romantic setting.
