Every time you have the good fortune to dine at Vincenzo's, you're met with amazing and attentive staff. The food is beautifully presented to you (almost too pretty to eat), the wait staff have been there for a long time, and it's evident -- they anticipate your needs and they do everything possible to ensure any meal there is a special event.

Our small group (table for 5) had a most delightful lunch -- we will return!

Enjoyed our experience. Our only concerns were the gnats that were plentiful and harassing. Also, preferred less sauce on the lamb.

The ambience is very elegant and service very friendly. The food was pretty good. Not amazing but pretty good. The portions were kind of small but that’s to be expected with fine dining experiences. When I mentioned to the server that we were there for my boyfriend’s birthday she actually brought us out a free piece of dessert of his choice that was decorated! It went well above and beyond what they need to do to make sure that we had a good time. if you’re looking for an elegant fine dining experience I highly recommend

This place was not LGBT friendly to say the least.

My wife went out of her way to make a reservation (noting that it was our anniversary) at the very popular Vincenzos in Louisville, Kentucky for our anniversary. We thought we were getting an excellent dinner with some awesome service and maybe a “hey, Happy Anniversary!” At the very least, but we got none of that. The couples to our left and our right got the best of service, kind conversation, free dessert, and the friendliest staff you could imagine for their Anniversaries. We weren’t once asked if we were celebrating anything, if we needed anything and we could barely get a refill on waters. It was very apparent that we were treated differently than the couples to our left and our right. They got all the bells and whistles, the congratulations, friendly staff and free dessert to top it all off. I don’t expect extras or even a congratulations. I and WE expect to be treated like every other HUMAN BEING in that establishment. Like a paying customer.
Thank you to the hostess and valet for acknowledging us.

The tomato/mozzarella appetizer was great. We were disappointed in the veal parm. We normally have dinner there and it is always great. We just happened to be in town and tried lunch for the first time.

I will start by saying the food was really good. I highly recommend the spaghetti with lobster tail and shrimp. However, the service is what really hurt our experience that evening. It was a good 10-15 min before we were greeted after we were seated. It was another 10 min after that before we were asked if we wanted to start with a drink. At which time, we were also asked if we wanted to put in our food order (feeling very rushed). We declined and waited to get our drinks. At some point another server came by and said they would be helping us because the other server was too busy. And we never saw that second guy again. We were in a tight corner and I felt like I was going to get hit by a server walking in and out of the kitchen area. All in all - we were there an hour and a half, had one drink each and only ordered our main dish. Again, great food. But the service was well below par.

We went to Vincenzo’s for a special occasion. We made reservations and were seated in a very comfortable booth in the center of the restaurant under the sculpture. (I will always request this seat now that I know of it for special occasions.) We were surrounded by beautiful ambiance, art and music. The wait staff were outstanding and worked together well to care for the customers. The food was absolutely amazing! We had the rack of lamb and crepes. Vincenzo came out and greeted the tables. It was a wonderful experience.

We had 7 people and considering the circumstances they did a great job. The service was a bit slow but that’s to be expected with Covid and people bit fully back to work yet. All the food was excellent and their wine selection is great. Highly recommend.

What a fabulous experience! My son was unable to be with on Mother's Day, so last night we had Mother's Night at Vincenzo's. The waiter was gracious and attentive. The food was delicious. It was nice to meet Mr. Vincenzo himself as he came to our table to make sure all was well. The white tablecloths and fresh flowers on the tables contributed to the elegant and festive ambiance. Because the waiter knew we were celebrating Mother's Day, at the end of the meal he surprised us with a large slice of a delicious cake.

We were celebrating our son's college graduation and had a lovely evening at Vincenzo's. The meal was outstanding and the service was impeccable. There was special menu for graduation which we were not aware of before our visit so we were initially disappointed to not have chicken piccata or fettucine alfredo but the dishes from this special menu were out of this world!!! This was our first visit to Vincenzo's and will certainly not be our last.

Vincenzo's is the type of restaurant where presentation and service are every bit as important as the food. They use the old system wherein a captain addresses every table and directs the assistants under him. Frequent attention to detail made for a very nice dinner. I ordered the special Prix Fixe dinner consisting of house salad, baked salmon and mousse for dessert. Everything was delicious. Yes, this place is very pricey, but it's very much worth it.

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
