Had such high expectations for this restaurant and was thoroughly disappointed. Atmosphere is non existent. Decorating style is old and outdated
Overhead light fixtures had bulbs that continually flickered and were in need of replacement. Carpet was dirty, walls were paint chipped. Roses in the vase on the table were wilted, droopy and dead. Charging cart with oily covering remained right next to me even though I requested it be moved or move us to another table. Appetizers were so so. I had the smoked salmon which came on toasts with a small salad. The salmon was sliced too thickly and tasted no better than supermarket salmon. The greens were overly dressed and wilted. Husband started with the Vesar salad. It too was way overdressed, and soggy. The entrees were better but definitely over priced for what they were. Husband had the veal saltombocca which was very tender. The order was accompanied by very oily green beans and a pepper which couldn’t be eaten. It also came with a small red potato that was stuffed. Ok but nothing special. I ordered the Sole Menuire which was tasty even without the sauce. Unfortunately when they deboned it they didn’t do a great job and I had to spit out fish with bones 4 times. The same greasy vegetables accompanied by entree.

The website states that masks must be worn but only one server had on a mask. Even the hostess and the owner who did our chafing was maskless!! Website also indicates free valet parking but in reality valet parking costs $5.

Would I return to this restaurant?? No way. There are much better options in Louisville and they cost less as well. I’ve been to Volate, Roc and Sarino’s and they all beat out Vincenzo’s by a mile.

A very dissatisfied customer.

First off the positive - food was really good and served hot. Rest of our experience was poor. They were obviously understaffed for the number of people in the restaurant. As a result it was over an hour between finishing our appetizer and getting our meal. We spoke to the manager and the owner neither of whom seemed to care. I know restaurants are short staffed, I get that. But the answer is to take only the reservations that can be served appropriately, not to fill the restaurant then make people wait long periods to get their food. Just a disappointing experience at what appears to be a good restaurant.

The food is always delicious, and the ambience is lovely, though a bit loud. The service is normally impeccable, but our experience on this visit was a bit lacking in that department, though certainly good. We were expecting valet parking to be an option as usual, but there were no staff for valet for services when we arrived and when we left; be warned if you're relying on valet parking. But, there is plenty of reasonably priced parking nearby.

What a simply incredible dining experience! Every aspect of the evening was incredible—the drinks, wine, food and service. Our captain guided us perfectly with superb recommendations. We were only visiting town for a few nights and wished we had dined here every evening. I highly recommend this restaurant and we can’t wait to return to town to dine here again. Thank you for a perfect evening.

Always enjoy bringing out-of-town guests in for a meal here. I'm never disappointed. If you don't see what you want on the menu, don't think for a minute they won't make a custom made-to-order entrée for you.

We recently went to Vincenzo’s for our 4 year anniversary and it was spectacular! Although we did have reservations we were seated immediately, the staff was so courteous and made us feel like we were the only ones in the room.. I couldn’t possibly say enough good things about this restaurant! It was a 2 hour drive for us and definitely worth it, we will be back.
