Everything we had, from appetizers to drinks to dessert was exceptional. Service was very good. It was recommended by a friend. We were in Florida for only a week and went back 3 times. Prices are very reasonable and portions are plenty. Upscale feel to it yet still comfortable.

At Vincenzo’s, the ambiance, menu, waitstaff, and food quality was excellent. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. The quality of food was exceptional and the price was very reasonable. The bread and pasta were homemade as were all the recipes.

My wife and I were visiting Orlando on vacation recently and made a reservation at Vincenzo's. We decided to ask to sit at the bar and we were served by Francesco. He was charming, attentive, amusing, polite and very good at his profession. He informed us of the menu choices and answered any questions we had. The food we had was very tasty, presented well, and of very good quality and value.

We enjoyed the experience so much that we stopped in the next day and again sat at the bar as Francesco was once again working. The beef carpaccio was a very large portion, sliced very thinly and along with the parmesan, capers, arugula, and balsamic dressing was absolutely delicious. The pasta was freshly made in house cooked perfectly and along with the Bolognese sauce, was stunning. The limoncello cake was to die for and we ordered it each night we were there.

If we ever visit Orlando again, be assured we would visit Vincenzo Cucina Italiana again. We highly recommend it.

Once our waiter seated us, he disappeared. The two meals we had ( my wife had cheese ravioli and I had a seafood pasta dish) were WAY TOO salty. The volume of food, the temperature at presentation, and the appearance of the meals was fine. However it took a good part of the evening to erase the salty taste from our lips and palette.

We have dined at Vincenzo every year probably since 2015 and have always enjoyed our experience. Our server, David, was excellent!! My wife had the Ravioli Aragosta and loved it!! In the past, I have always ordered a dish featuring cinghiale which I learned to love while traveling in Italy. Last night it was featured in a $31 pasta special which was VERY disappointing. The flavor was very good, but there was very little cinghiale and a boatload of pasta!! This is the sole reason for my low rating on value.

The best dinner we've had in a long time. A very pleasant surprise -- friendly, excellent service; wonderful food; nice menu -- can't wait to try some of the other items!! Marriott just gave us a list of restaurants in the area. Vincenzo's was one of four listed. Ratings we found were not helpful. Decided that it is an Orlando born-and-bred place, so, what the heck...
Great decision. We had the two specials -- Lamb chops and Papparadelle with boar -- after our carpaccio and before the tiramisu. Absolutely over-the-top good.

Parking was scarce but eventually found a spot! Perhaps a valet service would help in situations where the rides are going and promotes a busy parking lot. Aside from that everything else was very pleasurable.
Thanks for checking in and appreciate the opportunity to present feedback.

Great experience at Vincenzo’s. Pastas were very good, tortellini and gnocchi were recommended and we liked both. Half portions for appetizers or sharing were reasonably priced and offered. Lasagna was also really good. Driving out of the parking lot on a Saturday night was about the only thing that wasn’t perfect here, don’t let that deter you as this place was a real find.

The Garlic Bread was so good along with all the dishes that we ordered. My husband and I shared a huge basket of garlic bread, calamari (done just right), spaghetti with shrimp and as a main course, a fish dish that they were kind enough to plate for each of us. We had no space left in our tummy for a dessert at the end of the main dish. Over all, we really enjoyed the evening!

There is alot of hype about it being the best italian in Orlando. It did not live up to the hype for me. The gnocchi we as homemade and delicious. The spaghetti and meatballs was just ok. The staff were not warm though. We were ignored at the hosted desk by two different people who did not speak to us. That turned me off

Our waiter was a nice guy, Francesco(?), and he started out with some good suggestions and was attentive. However, our lasagne came out with half the noodles crunchy and uncooked. I have had lasagne where the edges are caramalized and crunchy on the outside, but that was not the case here. It was undercooked on the bottom and sides. Also, i understand al dente, rest assured these noodles were simply uncooked and hard. After we told them of the issue and sent it back, we received a new order, however, after a long wait, the same crunchy noodles ...this time they forgot to give us the meat sauce on top. The owner came out and thought we didn't know how a lasagne is cooked. She clearly didn't taste the crunchy noodles. We expressed our disappointment politely, but she just walked away and was quite rude. After another long wait and empty water glasses, we finally ordered a salad. Every step of the botched meal was long and frustrating with no accountability by the owner whatsoever. I think that she refused to listen to our valid complaint was the real issue here. Pass on the lasagne!

This restaurant was so beautiful and the food was wonderful! The only reason I gave four stars instead of five is because our steak was over cooked and we had to send it back. When you’re paying $97 for your meal, it should come out correctly the first time. That being said, the service was fantastic and the staff was more than happy to correct the mistake. They were very kind and accommodating.
