    We try to come here each time we visit Louisville. Last time we could not get a reservation so this review compares our visit pre-Covid. Our waiter was very kind however he had too many tables and smaller groups were kept waiting. It was a least 10-15 minutes from the time our dinner plates were taken to the time we were asked about desert. Coffee that was requested never came. Please don’t seat tables and take reservations when you don’t have the staff to give attention to guests. The food was good - but I used to think it was amazing. Nothing about it seemed special and many of the true Italian dishes have been taken off the menu in favor of heavily sauced dishes with lots of cheese.

    Had to send back the filet twice. 1st time it was undercooked. 2nd time a large tendon ran through the middle, while still being undercooked. Got it taken off the bill. Other food was good, but not worth the expensive price. Go to a different, hole-in-the-wall restaurant for better, cheaper Italian food

    We have been eating at Vincenzo’s for six years every time we come to town for the NSRA Street Rod Nationals. Every year we look forward to this meal and gathering. It has always been excellent in the past. This year was a little different but not horrible. No more tableside preparation of the Caesar Salad and the taste changed a little. Our waiter Justin was torn between too many tables so the service was a little off. I guess sooner or later the Service industry will come back to normal as Covid is in the rearview mirror. The owner always comes by the table with a big Welcome and sincerely appreciates everyone that dines in Vincenzo’s. If you visit Vincenzo‘s Facebook page your heart will melt when you see what is given to the community from this restaurant. We will be back next August

    Great service, low quality food. Recipes overdone. Destroyed my rack of lamb with a sauce that was one step beyond katsup. The whole experience was overpriced ordinary food in an elegant setting.

    Simply amazing. The food and service were both excellent. Best caesar salad I have ever had. The sauce on my husband’s salmon was like nothing we’d ever tried before. My fettuccine was outstanding. I cannot say enough good things about this place!

    Perhaps it was a result of poor menu choices on our behalf, but our meals (sea bass and filet) were underwhelming. Service was fine- not overly impressive but still nothing to raise a complaint over.

    considering. we reserved a table and asked for a booth. we got stuck in the courtyard (basically for the “poor”people even though dinner was $215 for 2 people before tip) at an uncomfortable table. the risotto was undercooked. i received the wrong $55 piece of fish. BUT I COULD HAVE NEVER IN MY LIFE ASKED FOR BETTER SERVICE AND THE FOOD WAS GOOD. AND THEY EVEN MADE ME A SOUFFLE!!! that was amazing. THEY HELPED US GET A CARRIAGE TOO. LOVE THE OWNER AND THE SERVICE LEVEL AND BARTENDER. ALL THE PEOPLE THERE WERE AMAZING. i will return for the service and souffle. but not the fish. lol

    Fro the moment we arrived we felt appreciated and important. The staff was great and the manager stopped by a couple of times to wish us happy birthday and make sure everything was perfect. We started with CARCIOFINI MARINI Baked artichoke bottoms filled with crabmeat and scallops it was wonderful tender artichoke with flavorful crab and scallops, topped with a great tomato sauce. The Caesar salad was very good and I ordered anchovies which were provided without questions. The entree SPAGHETTI CON ARAGOSTA, POMODORO E ARUGULA Spaghetti with lobster tail, shrimp, sun-dried tomatoes with extra virgin olive oil, garlic and Italian parsley it was WONDERFUL lobster and shrimp done to perfection with a sauce that demanded we use bread to capture every bit of the flavor. It was not inexpensive however it was an experience I would gladly pay for again…

    We have been dining there occasionally for over 25 years and recently have noticed a bit of a decline in the normally elegant experience. We suspect that some of the causes are the unrest in downtown and clearly the lingering effects of COVID.

    Food and service were great. However, don’t believe the menu on Open Table or on the restaurant’s web site. Old and outdated. Prices were $5 to $10 more than shown. This isn’t the first time that Open Table menus were current. They should ensure that they are. Vincenzo’s web site showed a fixed price theater menu. When we asked they said they weren’t doing it even though it said Monday through Saturday but then they brought it to us. Selections were all different than on their web site.
