Our lunch was absolutely delicious! We really enjoyed the chicken piccata and the Chicken tetrazzini as well as the deserts! The service was incredible. The owner also came to our table several times to check on things. This is a very nice Italian restaurant and will definitely make it a "Must" stop when we are in Louisville

First I had viewed the menu online and decided my top 3 choices. Unfortunately, they didn’t use their regular menu and switched to a fixed price menu for Derby and none of my top three entree choice were included. So I went with the Crepe for my appetizer, the Veal for my entree and the cheese cake for dessert. The wine I was familiar with and it was great. The Crepe was excellent but downhill from there. The veal was under seasoned, over cooked and cold! I would have sent it back to the kitchen but our waiter disappeared for 15 minutes. The cheesecake was average at best, totally flavorless. I’ve eaten in 4 and 5 star restaurants all over the world but this was, by far, the worst $450 meal for 2 that I have ever been served. I know COVID has disrupted the food industry but there is no excuse for this food ever leaving the kitchen. Actually of all the restaurants we ate at over our 5 day stay, this was the worst. Jeff Ruby’s, Doc Crows, The River House, our Hotel were all better and lots less expensive. Our breakfast from Smashburger was even better.

Had an Open Table reservation for dinner as a single. When I arrived, I offered to sit at the bar; the hostess said it was up to me, but I was welcome to sit at the table they reserved for me. Nice touch.

The meal was borderline surreal. The food and service were first rate—gourmet meals finished table side by experienced waiters. But, unlike other haute cuisine white table cloth restaurants with snooty wait staffs, there was not an air of pretension in the entire restaurant. Instead of arrogant, standoffish servers, these folks were having fun—with the patrons and with each other.

I had the Dover sole. I’m of the opinion that Dover sole is the world’s greatest fish and I never miss the opportunity to order it unless I don’t trust the kitchen or the price is too high. Vincenzo’s charged $45–not inexpensive, but a fair price. It was cooked perfectly and boned expertly table side by the waiters. No complaints at all. The sauce was very good; honestly, I’ve had better, but it was very good. I’m probably undervaluing it because I prefer more of a French based, rather than an Italian white butter sauce, on Dover sole. But, it was still very good. Did I mention that the fish was cooked and boned impeccably?

This is a really good restaurant and I commend it to you. The Italian meals I saw being delivered to other tables looked outstanding. I’d eat here again in a heartbeat.

The lamb was cold. The waiters offer food that isn’t on the menu as if it’s sort of the meal. More upset with the lamb .

This is our Holiday / Special Occasion Italian restaurant. The servers are very polite and personable, the restaurant space itself is very elegant - request a table under the high windows - and Tony Bennett Sonoma Cutrer. Very pleased with our Anniversary dinner; kudos all around!

Delicious food, great service, crazy low prices.
My son and I went for lunch. Our server was so helpful and friendly. We shared a salmon special and a pasta dish.
The prices were very reasonable.

Another good meal at Vincenzo's. Covid kept me away for a year but chef was able to whip up my favorite chicken pasta, even though the menu has updated. That's service! Gabrielle was there to great us with his usual flair and gratefulness. Worth a trip downtown.
