Francesco our waiter was fantastic!
Awesome Italian food and service, we stop by every year during our expo!
A fantastic restaurant and experience. Food and service were both fantastic.
We had the chicken caprese with beefsteak tomatoes and mozzarella with arugula, we found the chicken to be tough. That was the only thing.
The ambience is relaxing, the food; papardelle with boars meat, gnocchi, chicken parm, calamari bruschetta was very good! Thanks to Arnold our server. We will return on our next trip south!
Delicious food in a comfortably elegant dining room. Not pretentious. Only drawback was the server who was efficient, but brusque. Gladly not overly familiar but not engaging or seemed genuinely interring our pleasure.
We both enjoyed our meals - the Florida grouper with clams on spinach and the salmon with sun dried tomatos, mushrooms and spinach. Very tasty and done well. The tomato sauce on the side penne was okay but not nearly as good as the sauce on the main course. The service was very good. One of the nice touches was the chef coming by after dinner to ask how we enjoyed our dinner - that makes it very warm and personal. We will return!
Excellent food and service!!!!
Excellent, friendly waiter. Excellent food, especially the pasta. Top marks and every reason to repeat.
Excellent food, very friendly service but a little pricy for pasta! But would certainly recommend the restaurant if your looking for good home cooked Italian food.
The appetizer was amazing we had the Calamari and it did not dissapoint. The drinks where really good bartender was not cheap with the liquor. For dinner we had the Chicken Parm and it was so delicious would highly recommend and will definitely go again.
Ricotta gnocchi is outstanding.
It brings me back there every time I'm in Orlando.
Manuel is an exceptional waiter.
the tips expect were too high, asking for 25% tips, but the food was excellent
Was interested in this restaurant because it was listed as one or Orlando’s best Italian restaurants. Was in the area for business and work team went. Ambience was very nice but food was only so so. Two people had to return their food because it wasn’t warm enough. Bread didn’t come with butter, just olive oil, didn’t get large spoons to twirl pasta. Salad was ala carte,not included with meal. Honestly get better portion size and value at Olive Garden or carabbas
The food was delicious! Larger than expected portions. Our server Manuel was attentive and efficient. We didn’t have wine this visit, but the wine/drink menu is extensive. The lasagna and the gnocchi were so good and I’d highly recommend the meatball and polenta appetizer. I’d definitely look forward to dining here again!
Appeitizer, salad and dessert were good. I had the day's special and was dissapointed. Drinks were overpriced. Food portions and service was good. Next time I'll try one of the veal dishes.
We really enjoyed this restaurant the food was excellent. Not your typically "tourist" restaurant, it actually felt like a nice neighborhood place. It was very nice. Highly recommend
Our first issue was with the different prices in our menus. In two menus prices were lower than in the other two menus. When we asked our waiter about it he simply said that the menu had been changed, the higher prices were correct and the old menus had not been discarded. Not a professional start.
The antipasto appetizer was very good, fresh meats and cheese.
I wanted to order chicken parm but needed it to be gluten free. The kitchen could not accommodate and the waiter was not helpful with suggestions. I chose the salmon but wanted to skip the potatoes and asparagus for a side of gluten free pasta. Even foregoing the two sides , I would have had to pay an up charge for the pasta, so I skipped it. My salmon had 3 very large bones that a chef should have been able to detect by touch. The sides were ok. No salad with the meal.
Disappointing. The food prices were not bad but the wine prices were outrageous and that it what makes the final tab higher than it should be. It's a decent meal for a reasonable price if you stay away from alcoholic beverages and order strictly off the menu.
Simply the best Italian food in Orlando in a comfortable, aesthetically pleasing setting. Service was spot on, but the star of this show is the authentic, expertly prepared, incredibly delicious offerings. Bravo, Vincenzo's. See you again VERY soon.
Great service- not a rush to clear table
I found Vincenzo's on Tripadvisor and based on the good reviews, made reservations a couple weeks before we'd be visiting Orlando. We arrived about an hour early than our reservation time and they were very accommodating to seat us right away. We ordered a calamari appetizer and it was very good. My son had a bowl of lobster bisque (which we all sampled) and it was very enjoyable. My wife and I also ordered a house and ceasar salad. They were fresh and the dressings were not overpowering. My wife and daughter ordered the Fettuccine Alfredo. It was fresh,cooked perfectly and very tasty. My son had the chicken parm and again was very tasty. By the waiters recommendation, I tried the Pappardelle Cinghiale. It was rich with bold flavor and I enjoyed it very much. It was a little loud in our seating area maybe due to a larger dinner party in the room but overall a great dining experience.
So glad we could make a last minute reservation, while visiting from out of state. Alex was friendly and helpful in our dilemma in deciding on appetizers & wine. The Chianti was perfect with our brushetta classica, frito misto and carpaccio. two of our party was nervous to try the uncooked beef, but we were glad he encouraged us. Enjoying the appetizers so much, we made a meal of it, and ordered a fourth: bruschetta al cinqhiale. While the smoked smell was a bit too much for one of us, the others really enjoyed the "Italian pulled pork." Nice atmosphere, and we never felt rushed. Next time we'll go for the entrees, which looked amazing!
Exceptionally delicious Italian food and craft cocktails. Service was top notch as well. Prices were a bit high and strangely higher than what was on their website. All in all it was a great evening spent over a fine meal.
This place continues to knock it our of the park. Great Meal and Great staff
The service was so slow that it hurt the quality of our experience although the food was very good.
Our server was super friendly and nice but food came out at different times and some dishes were not as hot as they should have been.
On this night we had a delicious dinner of grouper and a medley of seafood over pasta. We did have an issue with ordering our wine but the server seemed to be in a big hurry and brought me the wrong wine, a rose'. What I wanted was a Chardonnay but he didn't take the time to listen to me. He would not take the rose' back so my wife said she would just drink it. I have never had this not corrected by any restaurant.
One of the best Italian dinners my husband and I have had outside of Italy itself. We got cheesy garlic bread, chicken parm and tiramisu. The portions are huge. My husband and I probably could’ve split one order of chicken parm but it was absolutely delicious!! We highly recommend it!!
The meal was less than memorable. The service was just okay. We brought our own wine and they wanted a $25 corkage fee. In a restaurant of infinitely more atmosphere and quality I might not have objected. This restaurant possessed neither. We declined to open our wine and drank soda.
It is not likely that we would ever recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Top notch. The food was sooo good and our server was friendly!!
Everything was awesome we really love the food, the music. We will come back soon.
Fantastic my fiancé had the pasta special and she loved it. Maybe a little pricy but worth it
Our waiter Francesco was excellent. The food was good but the veal was a bit tough
We had anticipated a more "fussy" experience but we found it quite comfortable. We had "classics" and were impressed with everything we had (pasta) the meat sauce is very good. A place you could go often.
our waiter spoke Italian — we were treated like royalty from the moment we walked in. Bread and olive oil was delicious and all of the dinner guests enjoyed their meals. My only complaint was that my main dish was too salty.
The restaurant is ok the appetizer we got was good but my meal was dry .. nothing worst then dry chicken :) Staff was friendly.
DO NOT LET THE STRIP MALL LOCATION DETER YOU. Saw great reviews, pulled into parking lot and started making a back up plan. We avoid chains like the plague, but private can be hit or miss. This was definitely a hit. Outstanding food and service.
It was a very nice restaurant. The food and service was amazing.
