Upon arrival we were sited promptly, however once sited we felt rushed to eat and get out.
We did not even finished with our meals and were asked if we wanted them wrapped.
The veal parm. was rather tough, therefore: another meal was suggested.
Noise level was very high, hard to hold a conversation with our group.
I will not return to this restaurant.

I love the food and the staff is always pleasant. My only complaints are how loud it is and how close the seating is to other tables that you can hardly get out of your seat to use the restroom. We ordered 3 appetizers for 8 people and there was no room for me to even eat them because the tables are so small that the apps were right infront of people that they had no room for their own plates. The food is great and the servings sizes are good but the space is a bit overpacked. When they wrap deserts they always wrap the leftover I scream (for a brownie sundae or apple pie) with it which I understand but it’s always ruins the leftovers because it gets soggy. I’ve been before and I will go back but not with a big crowd. It’s better for smaller groups I feel because it’s SO LOUD and tight seating.

I made a reservation at 8am, called to confirm and showed up on time. I still waited an hour to be seated and people who walked in after us with no reservation were seated before us. Absolutely no point in even having a reservation if they don't honor it. Usually a good experience but this time ruined it for me. It was my boyfriend's birthday too and I felt horrible we had to wait so long.

In town for the PGA. Soon as we walked in and saw the decor, I knew I had made the right choice. Seemed the place to be even on a Thursday night. Portions were huge and the Caesar Salad was the best we had ever had. Growing up with an Italian mother I am very picky about my red sauce and normally don't order it out but I'm glad I did. This was some of the best. Can't wait to go back.

Good food. Authentic Italian. Wait times are usually long so it's recommended to make a reservation. Lasagna is delicious. A bit cramped and noisy.

Have gone to Vincent’s since their opening. All was good then, but now, all they want to do is throw the food on the table, take it off before you’re done and get out. Service has gone downhill and the Managers don’t care. They are very insensitive to handicapped people. When waiting, no chair is brought over(waits are long on weekends). Seating is where ever it is too bad attitude. Most times sitting in back of restaurant. Food came out luke warm, even the cappuccino. This has happened the last 3 times. Even called their office to relate my experiences, nothing has changed. Never going back to a restaurant that doesn’t care about their customers, only how much money did they make.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. But it get very crowded and can be impossible to get in. I love that they are on Open Table. Not only did we get a reservation for Mothers day, but we got there early and got seated 15 minutes early. Service was great too! got food super quick.

Vincent's has always been a favorite of mine and is definetly the best Italian resteraunt on Long Island. Every bite from bread to dessert is absolutely delicious! Well worth the money - serving sizes are generous and I look forward to leftovers the next day. Highly recommend.

Always outstanding food. But service is always lacking. Waitress was slow, clean up guy was abrupt and reaching over our heads and practically leaning on me to get our dirty utensils and placemats, and it’s very loud. You have to yell to have a conversation.

The food was great. The only downfall is that you feel rushed . You can’t even finish the appetizer before the meal gets there . The waiter was new I think . Pleasant , but couldn’t remember who ordered what . Overall is was a very good dinner .
