Smoked salmon with shallots, olive oil, lemon and capers

The food was beyond excellent. The service was amazing. I believe this is a four diamond establishment. The pricing definitely reflects every single diamond. Well worth the money and time for any special occasion.
Outstanding service and food!
fantastic dining experience. great service, excellent and interesting food with many great selections.
Very romantic and peaceful setting. The food was amazing and the staff was very polite and professional. They even offered to take pictures so that we could have memories for our date.
I will go back to Vincenzo’s just as I have been doing for almost forty years.
We love this restaurant! Food is fantastic along with the customer service! Be sure to bring a sweater. Super Cold!!
Had a great dinner with friends!
As promised from my last review, we returned 2 days later....It was great! As always, I will miss getting back there. The food was great, the tableside (Request it upon making your reservation) just makes the whole experience more special! The salad tasted much better made tableside...it does make a difference. This is a MUST TRY Restaurant and you should go out of your way to get there!
Absolutely, the best Italian food in town. Worth every penny. Not, one thing to complain about. Top notch!!!
We Love Vincezos! This particular trip wasn't the best. The food wasn't cooked as well as normal, but Augustino wasn't there this trip. The rolls were over done and the easier forgot them. The desert we wanted was not available. In these stupid times, we fully understand things are hard to predict what will happen night to night. But, we are not concerned as this is very unusual and this remains our favorite restaurant! We are going back just 3 days later, tomorrow night.
I ate at Vincenzo’s for the very first time this night, it was my 31st bday dinner. Everything was beautiful and the staff were pleasant and so tentative however, I ended up VERY sick to my stomach after leaving that night. I had the Alfredo, not sure why it made me so ill but it really dampened the experience and night as whole. I appreciate the staff nonetheless, they were so nice and welcoming.
Had an excellent time with my girlfriend at Vincenzos. My salmon was good, my girlfriend absolutely loved the veal, but everything was prepared beautifully and finished at table side. On top of this, the chef made his rounds to every table. This care in the food and service shows at Vincenzos.
Went with family for 31st Anniversary. We are regular diners at Vincenzo’s for all special occasions. Excellent service as always
Incredible - tableside food prep was outstanding!
Vincenzo's is a favorite of my family to celebrate special occasions. They do a fabulous job making everyone feel special. They also work around our food allergies.
We arrived for our reservation at exactly 7 pm. The doors were locked and thankfully our driver did not leave us standing alone but waited and suggested elsewhere. We had received zero notice they would be closed. In fact I received a noticed that they were expecting us at 2 pm on the day of our reservation. I understand the closing but think I should have received some notice. Had our driver simply driven off we would have found ourselves in a scary situation. We are sorry we missed what we heard to be a great dinner.
We wanted to celebrate each other and some recent accomplishments and decided Vincenzo’s was the spot to do that, it was an excellent decision. We felt welcomed from the moment we walked in, being greeted personally by the Head Chef, to the end of the date. The Maitre D made sure we had everything we needed, and recommended a wine that both of us agreed was the best we’d ever had. The food was cooked to perfection. She had the rack of lamb and I had the gorgonzola stuffed steak, both were to die for. Amazing experience, excellent service and wonderful food.
Absolutely fantastic meal! True Italian delight with top notch service! I highly recommend!!
Celebrated our daughter’s high school graduation with an amazing dinner at Vincenzo’s. The food was amazing from the appetizers to the dessert - best place for tiramisu in Louisville. Vincenzo, himself, congratulated our daughter and provided our family with memories for years to come. Outstanding dinner and restaurant - highly recommend!
Can't complain about the Head Waiter or the food. Both fantastic. Stars would be higher but we were sat beside a very loud speaking couple which ruined our atmosphere. While I am all for affirmative hiring, the busboy/asst. waiter interrupted our dinner too many times, and some inappropriately.
My guest and I both ordered Caesar salads. The salads sat at room temperature too long, the lettuce was half crisp, and there was far too much Parmesan cheese on them. I ordered the veal medallions and the sauce was very, very salty. I scraped most of it off and it was edible, but when I brought it to the attention of the service staff my comment/complaint wasn't taken seriously. Lastly, the door to the stall in the men's restroom was in disrepair. It wasn't what I expected from a 4-Diamond restaurant. The food was just okay for highly Americanized "Italian" food.
The food and service was outstanding. I would recommend the restaurant highly.
I TOOK A BUSINESS CLIENT THERE FOR LUNCH. THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT, SERVICE WAS PROMPT, PROFESSIONAL AND PRESENTED VERY WELL.
This s THE BEST RESTAURANT IN THIS WORLD! Not only is Augustinos food the tastiest, but ALWAYS CONSISTENT meal after meal, year after year! The Friendliness of the staff is a reflection of Vincenzo and Augustino! I HIGHLY recommend that everyone makes the effort to when you are ANYWHERE CLOSE to Louisville! My wife and I drove 100 miles just to celebrate our Anniversary and as always, we were not disappointed! We have been going there 15 years now and I cannot wait to get back there!
The food was outstanding. My wife and I loved everything we tried. All of the courses were expertly prepared and of course great portions. The service however, was lackluster. Our server did not really seem to care and was barely even going through the motions. We listened to how other tablets interacted with the staff and we just had a very different experience. We would still come back, but definitely were turned off by our server in particular.
The food and service was amazing as always. Highly recommend for lunch or dinner.
Very nice meal as usual.
The staff was so attentive and friendly, they really made our meal special. And the food was incredible!! Would definitely go back.
We traveled through KY on our way down to SC and ate here. We made a point to stop here again on the way home. This is a fabulous place- fantastic food and love the presentation table side. We will be back!
Wonderful as it always is at Vincenzo's
Always one of our favorite places to eat! Hope to go again soon.
Amazing experience. Larry and Steven went out of their way for us!’n
The experience was amazing. And the food was even better.
This place is fabulous! I love the ravioli. The cream sauce is out of this world. They make the Caesar dressing table side and it’s the best I’ve ever eaten. The desserts are wonderful also. The staff and owners really make you feel special. Love this place!
Perfect evening out with my best friend and our husband. 💜
This was my 1st time to Vincenzo's and the experience was truly awesome.
You will not find a better dining experience anywhere. Food, service, it is a pure dining experience. If you are celebrating anything or it’s just Tuesday you will not be disappointed! Steve & Tony created a great night for my business associates & I.
Great food. Excellent service.
I've been all across the nation and I have never been to a place with service that makes every customer feel like VIP with oustanding food and pride of ownership and excellence. Gary the maitre'd greeted us like long awaited guests and treated my 90 year old mother-in-law like the Queen Mother. Ms Fischer, the GM, stopped by to make sure the table and accommodations were acceptable and then our server, Ruben, was pleasant and knowledgable with that special ability to be there for every need without being over bearing and intrusive. It is very obvious he is part of a professional wait staff more commonly found in by-gone years. And to top it off, Mr Gabrielle himself stopped by, introduced himself and made sure his guests were enjoying his establishment. You could tell, it was important. He made us and my mother in law feel very special. Top shelf. If you are in Louisville, you need to stop by and find out what your hometown is missing!
The food, prepared tableside, was wonderful. Our waiters did a superb job, both in knowing the menu and making recommendations as well as in waiting on us.
