The service was very slow and not harmonized.
They just drop the olive oil plate without bread and no comment or attention.
The pasta was not as expected from an Italian restaurant.
The mussels wee small and traces of sand present.

We arrived early ,a bit early and the staff were doing there line up/pre shift meeting which is a good sign they communicate effectively. Warm greeting from the waiter and a good description of the nightly specials. They accommodated my wife’s dietary requirements and my request for some adjustments to my dish without reservation. Family friendly, professional and warm. Well done to both the front and back of house. Valet was courteous and efficient. We were here from New York on vacation and struck it lucky at Vincenzo’s. Great job guys!!

We went to Vincenzo’s for my birthday dinner. I was craving some homemade gnocchis. Their ricotta gnocchis were very good, and their marinara sauce tastes homemade. We also got a Parmesan chicken breast, but the chicken was overcooked and tough. The deserts were delicious. Overall, it was a good meal.

We sat in the outdoor dining area. The noise level inside is super noisy with large parties having a good time. No a quiet romantic venue but the food and service are excellent.

This is an amazing restaurant with amazing staff and amazing food. We enjoyed every dish we ordered. Everything is tastefully prepared with much attention to detail.The pasta fagioli was so tasty and the Vongole was very very good. The meatball appetizer was delicious and the tiramisu was out of this world. I highly recommend this restaurant. The service is wonderful. Everyone who works in this restaurant cares about you and your experience. I can't say enough about this place other than try it you won't be disappointed.

This was a beautiful restaurant. My only complaint is that they added 18% tip on a bill that was only $144 with three people. We were actually going to be more generous before we saw they had already added the tip.

Food wasn't anything special. I make better chicken marsala at home. Food wasn't super hot when it arrived to the table. My side spinach was super salty and I couldn't eat it. I understand the restaurant was busy but service was super slow.

Excellent Family options, family owned and operated. Delicious food and good portions size. Meatballs were seasoned and looked and tasted homemade, not frozen. Fresh ingredients and sauces. We had a party of 9 with three kids. Kids enjoyed food and so did the adults. Our waiter was great and attentive. Would definitely come again in future Orlando visit

We were looking for a restaurant with open reservations and found this gem of a restaurant. The ambience was great - very simple European and Italian. Jerry was waiting on us and did an excellent job with recommendations and attentive service. The food was excellent, authentic and tasty and just right. Bread was great, sparkling water also. What a surprise great dining experience, especially given the service problems so many restaurants face. Fantastic service ans passion for the food! Highly recommended.

Our server was extremely busy with a party and we waited 45 mins for our appetizer. I had to go ask him if he could check on it and when it came out the bruschetta was inedible. The bread was hard as a rock. I ordered the special of the evening which was seafood pasta and when he brought it out, it was very obvious that it had been sitting for quite some time. The pasta had soaked up all of the sauce and was so over cooked, you could not even get it on the fork. It was also incredibly loud in there, I had to move to another side of the table to be able to hear anything my date was saying. They seemed a little scattered, maybe understaffed for the evening.

What an amazing place! We sat outside for dinner. Everything was delicious! From the drinks, to our appetizer, to the main course, and of course dessert to go. Our waiter was very detail oriented and made us feel special throughout the whole meal. His attention to detail was appreciated and his recommendations were phenomenal. Definitely will be back when I visit Orlando again!!
