Nice restaurant however, the price of the pasta dishes is terrible! My pasta was $45 and had 3 very small shrimp and a sliver of a lobster tail. Very disappointing!

Cuisine qui se veut raffinée mais qui ne l’est pas - une fausse impression de haut de gamme - un détail qui en dit long : avait commandé un mint jelup un cocktail bien connu au Ky et ai un grand verre avec un sirop industriel, de l’eau qui sentait le chlore et quelques feuilles de menthe qui surnageaient ! Que dire aussi des raviolis qui baignaient dans le gras ... Bref je choisirai un autre restaurant italien la prochaine fois

We’ve always recommended Vincenzo’s, especially for special events and before performances at the Performing Arts Center. The food is always first rate In a spectacular dining room, with careful, attentive service. Critics of the expense of the menu should consider the overhead of the fabulous downtown dining room tuxedoed service staff, and full silver and crystal service. We were a bit surprised to see a service charge applied on our two bills for our foursome; this would be Expected for groups of six and up. 20% was added to the total food and liquor bill. Had we been given the discretion for the gratuity our practice is 20% of the food bill only.

Food was amazing. Our server seemed a little distracted. I had made sure they knew it was my boyfriend's birthday. They had it down to bring him a piece of cake. however the dessert girl came around twice as I hummed and hawed waiting for the Server to bring the dessert. Unfortunately my boyfriend went ahead and ordered a dessert before he got his surprise. Disappointing for sure...
But none the less. An overall fabulous dinner to celebrate a 60th birthday.

We love this place! It has been part of our life for a long time. My wife and I first went there together on our honeymoon and we visit as often as we are in Louisville. This evening was for my wife's birthday celebration. The food, wine, service were perfect! This is a true dining experience not to be missed!

Stephen was an outstanding waiter, a real experience! Would recommend more
Pasta dishes and wine a little pricey, maybe offer more lower priced options. Desserts were wonderful. Overall a memorable and positive experience!

We (2 of us) had a reservation but was still seated by the kitchen door so very noisy.
The service staff were all very friendly. The salad was pre-made, wilted and cold. The pasta was outstanding but the $200 price with one glass of wine each was to to much (did not order dessert) for overall experience.

Went there while in Louisville for the Utility Contractors conference. The food was fantastic. The manager, Brandon, went out of his way to give me a tour of the wine cellar which is in an old bank vault. Enjoyed our dinnee

Love Vincenzo’s! Our family went here for my wife’s birthday. What a treat. The food and service is outstanding. We had grandchildren with us ages 14 to 11. Vincenzo’s accommodated them nicely with modified menu items. Mr. Vincenzo was most attentive to them and our family. We had a great family night. I highly recommend Vincenzo’s for special occasions, date nights, and business meals.

We were here last year and had a fantastic 5 star experience. We brought some friends with us this time and were disappointed. We had bragged on the restaurant so we all chose this for our fine dining experience. Our drink at the bar was excellent and the bartender is first rate. When we finished we were seated slightly before our reservation time. So far, so good. The ladies ordered the pork tenderloin dish, my friend had the airline chicken breast and I had the stuffed veal medallions. We all shared Caesar salads. The salad was way too peppery and the ladies couldn’t eat it. The main courses were dominated by heavy sauces that hid the flavors of the dishes. Service was precise but slow. The desserts were tasty but the coffee served with them was only lukewarm. I felt bad for our friends as this was the priciest meal of the trip. My wife and I will probably not return.

We haven’t been to Vincenzo’s for almost a year. It was once a favorite place. We noticed immediately that a lot had changed. The plastic menu with fewer choices stood out the most. Ironically, when we went there before it wasn’t very busy, but the food and service were impeccable. This time, it was very crowded and the food and experience felt more like Olive Garden. I’m glad they are doing well, but it feels like they have decided to put volume over quality. I doubt that we’ll return.

Best restaurant in Louisville! A birthday dinner was enjoyed at this special restaurant. The pasta appetizer, caesar salad, grouper special, Dover sole, soufflé, and almond joy dessert were outstanding. We appreciate the excellent service.

We were in Louisville for the first time with friends for a football game and saw good reviews on the restaurant. It was wonderful, Stephen and Tony did an excellent job waiting on us and the food was delicious, my husband and I had the pasta with shrimp and zucchini and our friends had the veal and fettuccine Alfredo. They didn’t offer the Alfredo dish on the menu but Stephen said he would have it prepared for us. Such a nice and relaxing dinner! Highly recommend!

My husband and I had a fantastic anniversary dinner tonight. I had the stuffed pork tenderloin and caesar salad. He had the ravioli with chicken, mushrooms, spinach and medley salad. Both were fantastic!! We've been here twice and never disappointed.
