The food was delicious. However we felt as if we were being rushed. That was a bit understandable since the restaurant was full. It is definitely not a place to go for a quiet dinner. The lively atmosphere was nice. Definitely recommend.

My party of two had Opentable reservations for 7 pm and we arrived on time. We checked in with the outside hostess and only had to wait about 5 minutes for our table. We were seated inside and near the front entrance with petitions in between our table and the other tables. The restaurant was packed for a Tuesday evening so glad we had reservations. These servers really hustle, they are moving from table to table very quickly yet they are attentive, at least our server Stephanie was :) The food was very good (pepperoni pizza and Trio feast, as well as the pitcher of White sangria. Our only gripe was they didn’t have moscato although it was on the menu. We ordered Moscato and were given Prosecco. We were told that was their rose Moscato yet both were on their menu so my daughter and I were puzzled. Hated to return the Prosecco but that wasn’t what we ordered. I will definitely return, the food was the best Italian food I’ve had in a long time. The true test will be when I return with my boyfriend who is a true food critic.

Seating was prompt, service was quick and friendly. The atmosphere is family oriented and the portions of the entrees are enormous. The taste was excellent and dessert was fantastic as well.

The restaurant was packed. The service was very poor. It took so long for wait staff to come by. The staff forgot about bringing our drinks and other requested items. It took 3 times for us to ask before we finally got themto when the staff brought the drinks, he just threw the straws on one of the guests's plate and they went all over the place. Again, the staff needs pull back training on how to give a good customer experience.

We didn't see our waitress for about 45 minutes at a time. They seem to over work the staff.

Very good place for a family meal. A little disappointed at the shrimp balls. More filler than shrimp. Meatballs were good. Pizza was on the small side.
Pasta was good Also chairs were sticky…. Yuk.

They sat us at the wrong table to begin with. Food and drinks was not worth the drive we did. We were barely there for an hour and felt completely rushed and uncomfortable. Definitely not returning.

Our food was very good but the music was way too loud to have a conversation the sound level was that compared to a nightclub. It was very difficult to hear my family speaking

There is always a great meal waiting at Vincent's. This neighborhood gem is super popular and deservedly so. The food is delicious, the waiters super friendly and the value is terrific. And there is always plenty of leftovers for your second dinner tomorrow.

Food and drinks were DELICIOUS!
Our server Tommy, was one of the best servers I’ve have had in quite some time. He even engaged my 92 year old dad, which is not an easy feat. I made sure to let the manager know how great he was.
As usual, the serving sizes were very generous, my sister and I split a meal and even had leftovers.
It was loud… but that is expected.

Highly recommend!

We had a bit of a wait -about 40 minutes for a table outside even though we had a reservation which is to be expected. However, once we were seated it was about another 30 minutes before our waiter took our order. He was pretty scarce throughout the meal, but other than the service, the food was excellent! I had the zucchini pasta with shrimp oreganato. It was amazing as was the brownie sundae for dessert!

Very loud inside. Even though we had a reservation we were still waiting for 30 minutes. The food wasn’t as good as I expected. a lot of sauce and not enough actual pasta. Also, very garlicky. The portions were great though and the dessert (brownie sundae) was very delicious. Staff inside were very helpful and quick!

We dined on a Saturday night. Time management at reservation is poor. We had a 6:30p reservation but didn't get a table till it's after 7p. The portion of the food is very generous, which is why almost everyone needs to take the leftover home. The seafood are really good and well worth it. The place is so noisy that talking to people across the table requires shouting.

Excellent service and good food. Definitely feel rushed thru your meal. Italian restaurant with a marinara sauce that is not really very good is not the best of situations

7/11/21- party of 4. Very casual atmosphere. Staff was plentiful - Very kind and enthusiastic. Never once had to ask for anything twice and was seated on time in a packed dining area. Old time Italian music playing along with some Billy Joel favorites. Orders were placed and appetizers were out immediately. All of our choices were great and take home plates were given. Our waiter Nick was A+!! Would recommend and would go again

Food is great - service is outstanding -overcrowded. Despite 7:30 pm reservation on Wednesday evening , had to wait 1/2 hour outside in the heat. Dining room extremely noisy (contributed to by loud audio). Outstanding food, poor on ability to hold conversation
