    Excellent food & very attentive service. The daily specials are a great bargain. Vibe is like the old supper club (so, not trendy, but I liked it). I’ll be back.

    Took my two best friends there for the first time for a birthday celebration for my friend Kathy. They loved it! Table side Caesar Salad was a huge hit and delicious! Our service was wonderful and so informative. Entree's came out perfect. And my friends just loved the complimentary appetizer that they give. They want to go back with their husbands. My husband and I go there frequently and love it!

    Very accommodating for our much earlier arrival than we’d anticipated, and it was Saturday night. Great hostess and very helpful waiter. They also gave us a complimentary appetizer because we were first time guests. I thought that was an extra special touch. I would say the food was very good also. I had Chardonnay with a generous pour and my husband had a Manhattan he really enjoyed.

    The worst restaurant in Wilmington! This is not Italian cuisine. I rather go Olive Garden (which is also bad) Server was throwing cheese in a bowl from a distant. All fell on the carpeted floor. Carpet looks old and dirty. Most served items are bad quality store bought and microwaved. White wine was warm. I can’t believe why this restaurant has such high ratings…

    I really enjoyed my experience at Vincentes and the main reason for that was because of our server named Maddie. She was as pleasant, polite and considerate as could be!! Her positivity and thoughtful words and gestures made a difference and I really appreciated that. I hope to have her be our waitress every time as her personality was really excellent!

    Thanks to the staff at Vincente's for helping us celebrate my daughter's graduation. They were very accommodating with our reservation time, since we didn't know how long convocation was going to last. Everything was delicious and served with a smile. It's not a meal at Vincente's without the table side Caesar salad and some fancy drinks. Everyone really enjoyed their meal selections and dessert. If your in the mood for something different, try the crab cakes - no filler and a delicious pineapple salsa on top.

    You will need a reservation and it is worth it. Despite being short staffed there was a kind and relaxed atmosphere there. The wait for food was not as long as some other reviews described. It was very fun to have the Cesar salad made at the table. The salad maker was a great conversationalist. It was clear that he enjoyed his job and he brought joy to all the tables, creating a very happy feeling in the restaurant. The Galliano cake was the perfect dessert at the end of a meal, light and refreshing. The entire meal was completely satisfying. I have told many people about the restaurant and hope to return soon.

    Took my wife here for our 37 year anniversary. We dined here for my birthday 2 weeks ago and loved it so much we had to return to celebrate our anniversary. Caesar salad is an absolute must order here - they use the freshest ingredients and have one of the best dressing recipes I’ve ever tasted. And the preparation, including the famous “cheese ball toss”, should not be missed. It’s worth the trip just to have this salad. For entrees my wife had the Penne Bolognese (she’s an Italian food fanatic and rated the Bolognese one of the best ever), and I had the Blackened Chicken and Sausage (hot) over penne, which was delicious too. Bananas Foster is a must have special occasion dessert (you can have it over vanilla ice cream or cheesecake). Made from scratch with the best ingredients and oh so decadent…. My wife’s birthday is in a few weeks, and if I’m a betting man my money’s on Vincente’s for her birthday dinner. Or we might be back next week…

    We moved to the area almost a year ago and have been eyeing up this restaurant ever since. Our recent trip to Italy had us craving some good Italian food. Vincente's did not disappoint! The staff were all so nice and you could tell they loved being there. Our food was delicious and the portions were plentiful! We didn't have any room for dessert but we'll be back to try that. Such a gem of a restaurant and so close! I highly recommend Vincente's for anyone looking for a great meal and a family feel!

    Excellent as usual, despite bing understaffed. Always cheerful and welcoming. We so look forward to every visit. I had the veal parm with long hots. Cooked to perfection with penne on the side. Delicious! They always serve a free fish appetizer along with cheesy bread. So good for a start. We also get the Caesar salad, which is served table side by the owner. It’s a unique performance you have to see. Can’t wait to go again on a few weeks.

    We had an amazing experience with Rachel as our waitress. The service was top-notch and the food delicious, as always! Thank you to Danny and Chris for making it possible for us to add two people on short notice for our get-together with friends from out of town. We appreciate your kind flexibility! There were 5 guests in our party who were new to Vincente’s, and they especially enjoyed Danny’s delivery of the walking menu and the fun Caesar Salad table-side prep. They all said that they had a most enjoyable time and look forward to their next visit!

    The food was excellent. I had angel hair pasta with red sauce, a house salad, and a bottled beer. My wife had the chicken diane brie and fettuccini marinara with a glass of house wine. Serving sizes were plentiful. Neither of us had dessert as we were stuffed. The restaurant is in a little strip mall and doesn’t look like much from the outside; parking is sparse in front but plentiful in back. There was no obvious handicapped parking or curb cutouts out front. Inside was spacious with the bar between two large dining rooms. Decore was plain. The place was crowded when we entered and for that night reservations only (the night before Mother’s Day). We had reservations and were quickly seated. Drink and food menus were quickly supplied. Both menus are rather varied. The food menu had a variety of dishes available including pastas, pasta with chicken, veal, or seafood plus steaks. The current menu is online. Even though the place was nearly full, it was reasonably quiet with American Standard music playing in the background. I did not have to yell across the table to my wife to be heard. Our waiter was a pleasant and courteous young man but a bit slow in delivering our food. All in all I would recommend Vincente’s for a nice evening of Italian dining.

All food was smashing tasty, they're hurting for help so extra time is needed but who isn't these days and it's worth the wait. Thank you Vincente's we'll be back with bells on!!

    First impression was encouraging despite the less than appealing exterior. Inside the place had a warm inviting atmosphere. Staff was welcoming and personable. Our seating area was comfortable and spacious. We were greeted with a complimentary small bite appetizer and bread and water almost immediately. The waitress gave us a wonderful overview of the restaurant, menu and offered to tailor our wishes anyway they could. The menu had a nice variety of traditional and innovative choices. Our group all tried different dishes and were completely delighted. Table side prepared Caesar salad and bananas foster are a nice choice. Portions were amble without being oversized. The food was tastefully prepared and nicely presented, served piping hot. All around really good dinner. We all agreed to come back soon and often.

    After years of reading great reviews of Vincente’s, I decided to celebrate my birthday here this year. What a great decision! Everything from start to finish was exceptional! Cocktails and wines by the glass were creative and tasty. The amuse bouche of flounder Vincente was delicious and served as a very promising start to what was coming from the kitchen. The famous Caesar salad lived up to its reputation. Fresh and crisp lettuce and an entertaining tableside preparation made this one of the best Caesar salads I have ever eaten. Veal Oscar and Spaghetti Pomodoro entrees were bellisimo! Absolutely delicious. Dessert was Bananas Foster, also prepared tableside. Decadent and worth every calorie… I waited far too long to try Vincente’s. And now I’m already planning my return visit. Authentic old school Italian cuisine in an old world setting - perfection. And Maddy was a fantastic server - very knowledgeable and truly wanted us to have an excellent experience! Mission Accomplished!

Caesar Salad made at the table is the best there is! Plus enjoying the fun of it being made at your table. Veal Oscar is outstanding (3rd time I have ordered it) The veal jr was outstanding too! Waitstaff were friendly and accommodating! Highly recommend!

    I love taking friends to Vincente's, especially if they've never been. The Caesar salad table side never disappoints and neither does the service. Maddie was friendly and pleasant as always. My friend got the linguine and clams and said it was really good, so much so that he sopped every bit up with the bread. I usually end up with the straw and hay appetizer pasta portion because, after I finish the Caesar, I don't have a whole lot of room left. We took a slice of limoncello cake to go because my daughter loves it and could not make it to dinner. We will be back again soon.

    Unfortunately, we had a very unpleasant evening at Vincente's. They were terribly short on staff and did have a sign on the door informing patrons of this. We waited 45 minutes and then, since we hadn't received any food we nicely asked that our food be packaged to go. When we did this, the owner and waitress screamed-yes, screamed at us and said that there were many people in front of us. We left very dissatisfied and shocked at their attitude. We won't be going back!

    Fun night out. A bit pricey and they were admittedly short staffed. You must order the Caesar salad - it's delish and the "show" is always a hit.
