We had the chicken caprese with beefsteak tomatoes and mozzarella with arugula, we found the chicken to be tough. That was the only thing.

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!

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!

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.

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!

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.
