What great Italian food! Everything was top notch from the salads to the garlic bread. Very attentive service.
Dinner was fantastic. Entrees were cooked to perfection. The service was gray as well! Highly recommend!
Amazing experience and food was very tasteful!
Great food and service
We had a great experience. Really good friendly service and the food was great. We celebrated 2 birthday's and they took really good care of us.
Owner not wearing face cover according
Very disappointing ingredients
Food not fresh
This place is a hidden gem. Fantastic food, excellent service, and nice ambiance.
This was our first visit here while in Orlando and it was fabulous! The service was great, had the house Sangria, also great! Home made hot bread with olive oil was brought to the table. We ordered the chicken Alfredo and the Spaghetti Bolognese. Both were very fresh and tasty!!
We are adding this to our list of favorites and will definitely be back
The food was delicious. Authentically Italian. Loved it.
The food was outstanding, excellent, superb! What more can I say??!! It was amazing. Our new favorite place!! 🙌🏼❤️😋
First time going there and it won't be the last. Went to try out the Magical Dining menu. We decided to share the Carpaccio and the Antipasto. It was definitely the right amount. The Carpaccio was so fresh. The beef was sliced very thin. The arugula was a great touch and went well with the beef. The meat in the Antipasto also has was fresh. You get mozzarella, mortadella, prosciutto, salami with little black olives.
We both decided on the Cernia which was a pan-seared florida grouper, shrimp risotto with middleneck clams and a saffron tomato broth. This was out of this world. Such a wonderful combination of flavors. The risotto was cooked to perfection and that saffron tomato broth went well with the fish and the risotto. The service was excellent. Definitely would recommend it to all my friends.
We are locals and were pleasantly surprised by Vincenzo's menu, staff and attention to detail. (It is in the heart of tourist areas.) The food was authentic Italian and tasty. Our server was reasonably attentive and friendly as well as able to answer questions.
We were NOT impressed by their complimentary valet. He had NO concern for covid precautions - no mask and no respect for distance. He basically tried to put his entire head inside our vehicle where a passenger was seated when we stopped the car to ask a question. Furthermore, we noticed he was blocking people's access to the disabled parking spaces (against the law in FL), and also parked vehicles in the hashed sections between spaces. This is not only against the law, but dangerous (not to mention rude). If a wheelchair van is parked in one of those spaces, the car that pulls in the hashed section could be damaged when the ramp is extended.
In summary, go to Vincenzo, but park your own car further away. It's worth it to be safe!
IF YOU WANT TRUE ITALIAN FOOD, I RECOMMEND IT, THANK YOU
Food and service was amazing. 10/10 would recommend. We started with the arancini rice balls, presentation and taste were one point. I ordered the gnocchi, delicious. My husband ordered the spaghetti and meatballs and added meat sauce. Best he’s had. For dessert we ordered the Nutella cheesecake and limoncello cake. Again, delicious. The atmosphere was great, service was excellent, and food was perfection. Best dining experience we had this trip. Food was so good we forgot to take pictures. This place is definitely worth a try- you won’t be disappointed!
our waiter Davide was molto carino! Antipasto selection was all our favorites - olives, mozzarella, prosciutto, salami, and awesome mortadella :) ArancIni were also delicious, hot with a crispy coating. tortellini w filet mignon tips was delicious especially the sauce, as was the fish (perfectly cooked) with risotto. The limencello cake and chocolate cake were so fresh and buonissimo! The wine list is extens and we selected a red cab very very good! Highly recommend Vincenzo!!
I have been to this restaurant twice and both times the service has been outstanding! Unfortunately, with that being said, I am not a fan of the food and have tried multiple menu items. I have had both the lobster ravioli and filet on separate occasions and I didn’t finish either entree.
Surprisingly good restaurant! Didn't expect such good, authentic Italian food right off of I-Drive. Will be back. Soon!
Excellent food and wonderful service! Will visit next time in Orlando!!
Wow! Absolutely unbelievable! This meal was amazing! I would give it 10 stars if I could! Service was impeccable...our server Arnoldo was not only so fun but so knowledgeable and on point! We loved him! My brother and sister-in-law did the Magical Dining but bc me and my husband don’t do dessert(although I tried theirs and they were amazing)! The drinks were incredible! I highly recommend the Espresso Martini or absolutely anything on the wine list which is fabulous! My brother said their Margaritas are the best he’s had and for an Italian restaurant, that’s saying a lot! The food?! Oh the food!!!! I had the Carpaccio and added truffle oil...it was perfection! My husband had the house salad, brother had the Carpaccio and sis had the Antipasto Plate...all were yummola! For our entrees my sister and brother had the Filet Tip Tortellini(he added shrimp) and Grouper w Shrimp Risotto off the Magical Dining Menu! Hubs had the GF pasta w Bolongnse sauce bc he’s Celiac and Vincenzo’s did a great job accommodating his allergy! I had what I like to call the Chef’s Special which was the Porterhouse w shrimp and scallops and I added a side of their Truffle Marsala Sauce which I could eat on dirt it’s that darn good! I always have a problem w my steak being cooked a true RARE and this team of chef’s KILLED IT! It was fabulous! Thank you Vincenzo’s for a fabulous and truly perfect meal! We will MOST definitely be back!
Everything was GREAT. FOOD, SERVICE, ATMOSPHERE, SOME OF BEST ITALIAN FOOD I’VE EATEN IN A WHILE. THANKS
Went for Magical Dining. Food was good and they have a small outdoor area, which is nice in the COVID era.
The service was a little slow. We felt the waiter was a little overwhelmed. They sat us back by the bathrooms and there were other open tables so we did not appreciate that at we were by the kitchen as well and felt like we were dodging food and waiters the whole time. Not very relaxing.
Service was good considering he had a very large party at the same time. Food was ok. Not much ambiance as tables were crammed in to maximize seating.
Absolutely amazing Italian food, and even better service. They make you feel like family. Josie and Vincenzo are the kindest people and I love local family owned places like this! It is a fine dining experience on international drive that I highly recommend to anyone!!
This past Saturday I tried the magical dining menu. I was not disappointed with the lobster ravioli but I had also really wanted to order the seafood too. The dessert was an absolute winner… Don’t miss out on ordering the chocolate mousse. My dad loved the food so much he is planning his next trip to Orlando so we can eat at Vincenzo’s again.
Very disappointing. It seemed like after we asked for the magical dining menu the waiter really had so interest in serving us. The food was most disappointing. The carpaccio had no flavor. The grouper was very dry and over cooked. They did give me another entree- the lobster ravioli. Unfortunately the tomato sauce totally overwhelmed the lobster flavor. The dessert was very nice. The waiter never came back to ask if we wanted coffee or anything else. My husband and I will not go back
Dined via Magical Dining the main server was very helpful in recommending certain dishes on the menu. I had the grouper it was okay I should've gone with the lobster ravioli since I love spicy as the broth was a little on the bland side for me. The drinks were great! Overall I will come back as the overall experience was enjoyable.
Who would've expected an "old school" Italian restaurant next to a big tourist attraction? This was a white-tablecloth sort of place with reasonable prices and excellent food. The service was perfect and unobtrusive. We would highly recommend...
What i had to eat was a little salty for my taste.
Absolutely lovely setting featuring excellent service and amazing food! Great spot for birthdays and anniversaries. Best garlic bread I have had in years. Delicious pasta, homemade sauce, and desserts. Highly recommended!
Lovely, Elegant and the food is amazing will definitely return.
One of the best Italian restaurants in Orlando. Always a great time
Great food, great service, this was our second visit, will return.
We had a great night with friends. Our waiter was very good. Kept a good conversation but still gave us our privacy. The food was delicious and exceeded the expectation!
Sauce was too heavy on the Tortellini.
Overall good experience. Felt that prices were a little high for the portions and quality of food. May return back.
Entrees were average . So so dining room. Very good service.
It was amazing!!
Great food, great service will repeat. Good menu on the Magical Dining.
I took my girlfriend here for Orlando's annual Magical Dining event. It was excellent at every step. The service was courteous, and anticipatory. My drinks were refilled before I realized they were done (I always appreciate that). Our waiter made good conversation when it fit the moment. The ambiance was so suited for a nice night out with a loved one. There was great mood music playing and the lighting was perfect. I could probably write about the food for ages but suffice it to say, this is FINE dining. My compliments to the chef (Feel wealthy saying this lol) and if you are able to get out for Magical Dining ($35 3 course meals per person, do it.) this is a great place to come and eat. You'll probably be stuffed and happy way before their incredible desserts hit the table.
Service -and food were awesome!!! Best restaurant experience I have ever had!!!
Went for Magical Dining. Food and service was fabulous. What a value! Grouper was amazing. Also had the tortellini with beef. Delicious! We will be back again. Had a wonderful evening.
