This was one of our best dining experiences in a while. The food was outstanding and I would recommend the fresh made-at-the-table ceasar salad. Excellent. The wait staff was friendly and helped make our special occasion special.

Once again, Vincenco's provided a wonderful dining experience! The food and drinks were excellent. All of the staff were friendly and accommodating. They always make you feel welcome whether you are casual and ready to go to a concert, or dressed upscale to celebrate a special occasion.

Vincenzo's is one of my favorite restaurants which I like to visit for a dressy night out. The service is always great and I have tried to sample the whole menu over time and never been disappointed with my meal. I like to take my grandson, so he learns what fine dining is like.

We ate at Vincenzo’s before a concert. It was a wonderful meal. We started with Caesar salads which were flavorful and crisp. I had the veal Madeira which was the best veal I’ve ever ordered. My husband had the pork tenderloin which he enjoyed, although he wished he had ordered the steak. Our friends had the leg of lamb and shrimp pasta, and they both enjoyed them. Dessert looked amazing, but we were full from dinner and needed to get to the show. Staff was friendly and very attentive. A wonderful place for dinner. We will return.

First night in Louisville to check out the Bourbon Trail and we wanted some Italian. Looked at other reviews and saw this place has some good ones and close proximity to the hotel. When we arrived we seated quickly as the restaurant was a little empty with only about 5 tables. Figured maybe light night being Wednesday. Limited pasta options on the menu but the two we got were really good. The trio of waiters that served us were all exceptional and one made a homemade Caesar dressing right in front of us that was awesome. Worth stopping by and having a nice meal with friendly and attentive staff.

Vincenzo’s epitomizes what ‘real’ fine dining is all about with impeccable service, food & personal attention to customers who have special needs. I took my aunt there for her 70th birthday. She is on a walker and is legally blind. Mr. Vincenzo greeted her at the front door to wish her a happy birthday and the young valet was extremely helpful in helping her with entering and exiting the restaurant. I want to personally thank the entire staff, including Mrs. Vincenzo who recommended the Tiramisu for dessert, which proved to be an excellent choice. I highly recommend Vincenzo’s for those who enjoy five-star dining!!!!

I visit this restaurant frequently. The food is always outstanding as is the service. On this particular Saturday night, due to the NCAA basketball finals, the restaurant was completely full and unusually noisy. Nonetheless, I will always recommend Vincenzo's to locals as well as out-of-town visitors for its consistently high-quality dining experience.

Fantastic restaurant. I came here due to a friend's recommendation and gift a year ago and have returned for more. The food, ambience, and service can't be overstated. As a middle class individual dining at a high class restaurant, I was worried about the portion of the food compared to the pricing, but I was not disappointed!

If you have the chance you should visit here when in Louisville. The level of service is like the old days of table side attention. The food is presented and plated table side which is a unique presentation.

Gormet food prepared tableside. Impecable service. Upscale dining at a not-so-upscale price. A dinner for two less than $70! True, we didn't have wine as my wife recently had a liver transplant, but still a great value! Definitely going back!

What a great experience. We found the restaurant on OpenTable and needed to a table on a Saturday night. It was one of the best overall experience that I have had in years. The staff was great, the food was awesome and the atmosphere was splendid. If you are looking for a great meal and dining experience...this is the place. I will be back the next time I am in town.

The food was excellent. We were seated next to a stanchion or wall, so not an intriguing view. We were offered bread, but I had to remind them to bring the bread. The server was a seasoned pro but seemed disinterested. As an example, when the meal was finished he didn't ask about dessert and when we mentioned interest in dessert he didn't suggest coffee. It seems that he spent the minimal amount of time at our table, but still got a 20% tip. We enjoyed our evening and the food and Mr. Vincenzo came to greet us and thank us which was appreciated.

For my first time visiting this restaurant, I am so pleased to say that the experience was wonderful. The staff was polite, attentive, kind and professional. The atmosphere was quiet, romantic, clean and beautiful. The food was outstanding. My guest had the ravioli and it was delicious. I tried one of the specials, the red snapper, and it was made to perfection. Often times, ordering fish at a restaurant can feel like gambling, and this time I won. When our evening there ended, they wished us an enjoyable time at the show we were attending afterwards. Left us heading out with satisfied bellies and big beautiful smiles. Thank you vincenzos for such a wonderful experience! I’ll be back!

I’ve dined at Vincenzios on many occasions but not in recent years due to relocation out of state. The occasion was my son’s Birthday. We arrived and were seated in a very cold corner. Initially it was very busy and load, must have been an event in city that evening as it cleared out shortly after. We had two servers. One was pretty attentive, the other seemed to go thru the motions.

My son and I each ordered an appetizer, Cesar salad & entree. The salad was enormous and neither of us could finish our portions. Feel that server should have made the recommendation that we share due to its size. Our entrees came and were good but we were both so full that we barely ate much of the entree and took them to go. Our bill was over $170, which I find quite expensive. Don’t recall their prices being this high. I dined at many high end restaurants but felt our dinner was over priced. The next day but my son and I were not feeling well so our left overs were thrown away.
