    Vincitori's is a local favorite for us. They have a nice varied menu, good daily specials and a decent reasonably priced wine list. The ambiance is pleasant; lively without being overly noisy, and the weekend entertainment is great for 1950ish and 1960ish songs. We just returned from a 10 day vacation in Italy before going there and it felt just like we were still in Italy. A very nice meal for a reasonable price. Highly recommend.

    I keep getting emails from Vincitori, and I am glad for then because they serve as a reminder to go back and enjoy another fine Italian meal in Westmont. My wife and I had a table at the window so we could watch the folks outside ogle the vintage autos on display. Every Thursday night in the summer, vintage and muscle cars line the main street of Westmont, making it difficult to get to the restaurant. But the food and service make it worthwhile. There are specials every night, but the menu items are also very good. I have never had less than an excellent meat at Vinicitori. A true neighborhood gem.

    We live along the Metra and made a point to try out restaurants along the line this summer (to avoid driving). When we saw a Groupon, we had our first stop. We think the ambiance is nice, and the staff is energetic and attentive, but the food is underwhelming. The bread was tough, overcooked or stale. And we expect Italian cuisine to be so flavorful that we savor every bite, but the flavor was either unbalanced or missing. My husband had the blackened duck with a sweet ravioli-the flavors were there but lacked balance for the price of $30. As a vegetarian, I had the eggplant (recommended), but the pasta was the star rather than the eggplant. And the tiramisu was covered in whip cream, which hid the beauty of the dessert.

  • Best Marinara Sauce-Look No Further
    Linda1117
    Dined on 6/20/2014
    Unless you have an Italian grandmother to please, look no further for great sauces. The simplest sauces like a basic marinara, are often too salty, to sweet, or have a sour note. This one is great ... really nicely balanced. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner. Just the right background ... The sounds of good conversations, Friday night singer at just the right decibel level, and great spumoni as a topper. Couples and families will feel welcome, yet you could bring a small business party here as well. We will be back!

    Our server, Paco, was fantastic with helping us with choices. We started with a frozen daiquiri and a long island ice tea - both excellent. Appetizers included the stuffed banana peppers, pasta fagioli and french onion soup. Main course was the beef roll and portabello pasta. Pistachio gelato was a great way to top off our experience. The food was outstanding and the service was great. We will be back to try other items.

    We used a Restaurants.com coupon and noticed several other diners using them. Food was good but can't say it was outstanding. Maybe I didn't read the menu closely enough, but my meal had a lot of cheese, which I don't usually eat, which I didn't expect. Our waiter was very attentive.

    The specials were excellent, my wife had the lobster and linguine and it was fabulous. I had the Papa Vinc special with shrimp, chicken and veal and it was very good as well. We also tried the Shrimp Vincitori and sausage stuffed banana peppers and both were outstanding. Had no room for dessert so we have to go back.

    We did have one small issue. There were seven in our party and six of us were able to take home leftovers. We had appetizers and my daughter also had a salad. When it came time for the entrée, my daughter, who ordered a stuffed meatball and a pasta side, was no longer really hungry and asked that her food be boxed. When we came home and distributed the food, sob, sob, the meatball and pasta were missing. I do not want you to think I am being cheap/picky because everything was wonderful (and we must have enjoyed everything because the bill was $344.29) but that's what happened. Otherwise, perfect dinner and wonderful waitperson. Sincerely, Ida Ray

    A special birthday was being celebrated and first told restaurant when making the reservation, then told hostess upon arriving at the restaurant, and then told waiter. I can't believe nothing was mentioned by the restaurant staff. A small gesture would have been most appreciative. The food is very good, but the staff are very unfriendly and cold. We will not be going back.

    Went there on Sat, 4/26. Would not seat us (party of six) where we requested even though restaurant was half empty. Veal marsala was tough and a stingy portion for the price, though it tasted OK. Sides extra. My wife's desert of gelato was half melted by the time she got it. Waiter did not bring out deserts for our table all at the same time. Had to ask for a second cup of coffee. We have been here about three times and this was the worst experience, going down hill each time we have come. Too many other Italian choices in the western suburbs and downtown in this price range to go here.

    I have only had carry-out from Vincitore's until we were there on 4/23. I knew the food was good but I was very pleased to bring my friends and enjoy everything when were there for dinner. We eat out a lot as a group and individually even more. We are also familiar with most of the recommended places in the western suburbs and the consensus of the group was that our dinner was great and Vincitore's is a place that we will return to again.

    Nice comfortable restaurant. the staff is very friendly and knows the menu. Service was a little slow on our last visit but nothing that would stop a return visit. My husband had the linguini with Mussels. They have a rich unusual taste. We inquired and found out they were baked, not steamed. The cavatelli was a little disappointing. Not much flavor to eh sauce and the past was a little too flat. Try the gelatos for dessert. They are all flavorful and are paired with a perfectly crisp traditional pizzelle.
