Owners and service were accommodating. And authentic. The restaurant was far too loud and the patio, while quiet and nice enough, it’s a strip mall parking lot view. Meal was a just ok.

We were in town for a conference and one of the people from our table was actually from Italy. She was very impressed at the quality of food and service (our waiter was Domenico). Funny enough her family grew up near where Domenico was from - small world!

We highly recommend this restaurant - go enjoy the ambience, food, and service.

It’s hard to find a good Italian restaurant in Orlando Fl when you’re from NJ and used to good food. This place wasn’t even close. My family of 7 were all disappointed with our meals. But again it could be us bc we’re spoiled by living in Jersey

Uber had a hard time finding but what a gem. Really well prepared Italian cuisine with excellent and fresh ingredients. I had the seafood pasta with white wine and garlic sauce. Nice shrimp, grouper, calamari, and scallops with linguine. Delicious. Son had the glazed salmon and he was talking about it 4 hours later. Very reasonable too!

An extraordinary find. Jnlike so many of the restaurants on I- Drive, that really don't care if the tourist comes back (because there are 23 million others coming to town), Vincenzo's product is all about making your dining out a memorable event.

The waiters are professional , the food is so good, the cocktails from the bar are generous. THe only critical comment I would make is skip the gelato that is offered for dessert.

If you haven't been there, make it a point to get there soon. Best meal we have had in Orlando in a looooong time!

The food was delicious! The service was horrible. A crabby old man cam to the reservation desk 6 times and said just a second. A very unhappy old man Then he disappear. Another girl came later and seated us. While this was going on, a black family was passed over three times for seating while others were seated. If it had been my choice, after the raciest treatment I observed I would have left. The five others were hungry. Food great everything else sucked

Orlando is not a mecca for good Italian food. This restaurant is better than the chains but not up to par with what I would reference as 'authentic' Italian found in many cities that are comparable in size to Orlando. The restaurant was busy but not 'jammin' for a Friday evening and waiter did not seem over loaded with tables at once. He was friendly and somewhat talkative.
As main courses, our party had lasagna, gnocchis, and veal parm. They were good, not great (veal was a bit tough and hadn't been tenderized) but red sauce is not overly sweet (a plus). We up-ordered garlic bread (with cheese) which was late coming to the table; the accompanying bread with meal was not offered or provided. No one had dessert.
Wine list is decent.

The food was superb. We enjoyed a succulent full course meal, as well as dessert and coffee. Arnold, our server, was fantastic! He is personable, charismatic, and so genuine. His suggestions were excellent and he made our evening with his impeccable service, but most of all, with his professional yet vivacious personality. It was our first time at Vicenzo's, in celebration of our 23rd anniversary, and we felt right at home. We highly recommend this restaurant for dining if you want to enjoy fine Italian cuisine!

How very fortunate we were to experience this delightful gem! From the first greeting by our hostess Laura to the most quietly engaging and attentive service by Bruno, the noisy (very typically Italian) venue in no way detracted from the meal. The featured osso buco was unequivocally SUBLIME! Additionally, the simple side of spaghetti marinara could not possibly have been more delectable. NO ONE who wishes to experience a fantastica serata should overlook Vincenzo.

The food was good but watered down cocktails and lack lustre service would prevent me from going back. Dining in this particular area is a sham. If you want higher end dining get off the comfort zone of International drive, venture out ten minutes or so and you will.be rewarded by many restaurants not designed to drain your pocket .

In an area full of eating choices, this one is a standout for quality food. Food was well-prepared, service was excellent. We were able to sit outside and it was screened fairly well from the parking lot. Inside decor is very conducive to relaxed dining. The Veal Parmesan was delicious as was the pasta with pesto and vegetable sauce. Wine choices were excellent, the dessert menu was limited to about 6 choices, but were deliciously described and typically Italian. We had the Tiramisu which was fantastic. A good choice for dining, not just grabbing a bite.

In an area filled with oversized, overloud chains, Vincenzo Cucina stands out. Quiet, warm and cozy. Fantastic homemade food. Great service. I go every time I'm in Orlando for work. This time I went twice. As I said to the hostess, it's a restaurant for grownups. The pasta is homemade and the meatballs and polenta was one of the best things I've ever eaten.
