    First time at this restaurant. Didn't know what to expect. Went with husband, son and his girlfriend on a Friday night. 7:30 reservation. The restaurant was almost totally full. The noise level was loud but the people were smiling and having a good time. In the bar area was a wonderful male singer. He had one of those background music machines to accompany him. His voice was excellent!! Sang songs from the 50's to Josh Groban, Andrea Bocelli, even Coldplay!! The people in the bar all clapped for him! Even the people in the restaurant part! There were some ladies dancing in the bar. The appetizers were great. Fried calamari and bruschetta-excellent! I had chicken Marsala, husband-lasagna. My son had the special lamb chop, a house specialty. His girlfriend had a traditional pasta dish. We were all so pleased with the food. Everyone enjoyed their meals immensely! We all are so pleased to find this superb find. Much better than Brio, Volare, Roberto's and Maggianos!! Give it a try!!

    The kitchen was a bit backed up, but the steak was impeccable. Our server made sure to ask if we needed anything and apologized fortune delay (not his fault, these hints happen). We will return... This is one of our favorite places.

    We had a very nice evening at Vincitori . The place is somewhat dark but not to where you can't read the menu. There was a nice crowd of patrons for a saturday night. The server was really nice and friendly and helpful about the menu. The food took a little longer than normal but it was deeelicious. Just a great restaurant for dinning.

    Ordered the grilled calamari and it came on a bed of fried spinach greens. I would think that if the customer wanted fried food they would have ordered the fried calamari. Also our pizza came blackened so it was not visually appetizing, however it did taste fine.

    This is not our first time at Vincitori, but as always, the food was fabulous, and the service great. Will, our Server, was extremely attentive and personable. He made a great suggestion for our appetizer, the Grilled Calamari, and it was to die for. We had the house Merlot and it was very smooth. it It was our 41st wedding anniversary, and the staff was very congratulatory, and surprised us with a slice of their wonderful Tiramasu for dessert. And an evening there is not complete without a cup of their superb coffee. We will be back soon. Kudos to All!!

    Came here for my mom's suprise 60th birthday party. Everything about it was perfect! The server was polite and patient with our group of 12. The food was amazing and the wine list was notable. For a fairly big group, it was very accommodating. Reservations highly recommended ahead of time.

    We can't wait to return to sample all the mouthwatering items on the menu that we didn't try during our last visit. Loved the squash ravioli with brown butter sauce. Veal piccata was also a hit. Pasta portions are large enough to share. Great wine and cocktails. Friendly and attentive service. A real gem in downtown Westmont worth the effort to reach.

    Enjoyed a recent Saturday evening dining at Vincitori for the first time. Must be a popular place as the restaurant was quite busy by 7pm. Hosts and servers were friendly and attentive. Menu selection is very good. My chicken marsala entrée was tasty. Overall, fair prices for the value received.

    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.
