Probably the finest meal we’ve had in a long time. Casey was delightful, knew the menu well, couldn’t have been more attentive. The Caprese salad was rich and flavorful, and the Dover encrusted sole was perfection. The surprise dessert-4-2 for our anniversary was kind and generous. Beautiful atmosphere, impeccable design, quiet, romantic - just perfect. Delicious cocktails and wine . A memorable evening. Kudos to Casey and the chef. What a sweet young man. We will return!

Our experience was wonderful. The service, ambience and food were super. The only reason I downgraded the food 1 star is because my husband’s potatoes were cold which may be a result of the table side food service. The ravioli dish is to die for!!

We had an excellent experience dining at Vincenzo’s from the fresh bread served with olive oil,herbs and balsamic. This was followed by stuffed Artichoke Hearts as an appetizer. Followed by their Cesar Salad which was prepared at the table. We had the Sole special with a lemon sauce and the Veal Medallions. We finished our dinner with the tiramisu and cannolis. This was an exceptional experience where everything is prepared at the side of your table.

What a great experience for my family! We went to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday and it was my wife and myself, my daughter, and our three younger sons. I was a little skeptical about going here as I was worried about the menu items for my younger boys. But the waiter and host were awesome. They made it very clear early on that they could make anything the boys wanted even if it wasn't on the menu. And that's what they did for the boys and we all had a great dinner. Then they brought out complimentary desserts for the entire table for my daughter's birthday. Just a wonderful evening!!

Reserved a table for dinner for me and my 7 bridesmaids here. They catered to dietary restrictions and service was amazing. Met the owner and he was the sweetest. Definitely will be making a returning visit next time in Louisville.

I was disappointed because I had such high expectations! The place is beautiful & the service was attentive & on point. Where it started to take a turn was when we sat down & could visibly see dust on wall hangings, could see old stains on their white linen napkins - I mean this wouldn't be something that was so shocking at a Fazolis but for a place that's supposed to be on this high of a caliber? I also want to mention, we went on Saturday night - I even made reservations based on my assumptions of the popularity, ha! No reservations needed at all - there were literally maybe 4 other tables in use & even though they were open for an additional 2 hours no one came in after us, no one. Ok so the food - the menu had us excited, it was written in Italian with 'fancy' explanations. The appetizer we chose was described as a crepe stuffed with veal & beef then baked with a marinara sauce - honestly it tasted like ground beef & Prego sauce, nothing better than a Stouffer's meal, unfortunately. I got a filet, which for the price I expected to be as good of quality as the steak at Ruth Chris, it was more comparable to a filet I would get from Walmart. The portions were ridiculous - I mean, I wasnt expecting a huge amount of food but we're the type that usually have leftovers & we didn't even leave full. I didn't 'complain' to the staff because they did nothing wrong & the meal was as described - just so underwhelming. We had just returned from a trip to Chicago & ate at an amazing quality, actually authentic, Italian restaurant called Tuscany Taylor's & I was hoping to find a local option with equal quality & authenticity. Absolutely did not find that - I'm not sure how they're keeping their doors open for the price they're charging while delivering sub-par quality & laughable quantity. Overall we ate the meal, it tasted fine, the service was great, we paid & tipped but we will NEVER go back, we left without being full, we're let down & price doesn't match.

Our party of six had a great meal at Vincenzo’s. We ordered six different entrees and they were all outstanding. The service was impeccable. This was our first visit to Louisville and Vincenzo’s was recommended by a friend. We were celebrating a milestone birthday and they made the experience incredible. I would highly recommend this restaurant to any and all.

The best restaurant in Louisville. Vincenzo is always there greeting customers and checking with them throughout their meal. The servers are very experienced and the room is beautiful. Best of all, the food is spectacular. Plus, if you don't see what you want on the menu or want a different preparation, they will likely be able to fix it for you.

It was my first time at Vincenzo and I enjoyed my experience. At Vincenzo they put on a show by warming up the food tableside I ordered the Branzino which is the Chilean Sea Bass and it was cooked to perfection. I also had the best Cesar Salad too. Everyone at Vincenzo caters to you so you shouldn't come out disappointed especially when it comes to service.

We had another Great dinner At Vincenzo’s. My wife made the comment the restaurant has a great atmosphere and we always feel special and welcome. They are so Professional here, every detail is taken care of. Its very Romantic and very upscale......we enjoy getting dressed up and going to dinner, its a shame some people come to such a nice restaurant in flip flops, sneakers, shorts and the type of clothes worn to a summer picnic rather than an upscale venue like Vincenzo’s. I would be embarrassed going to such a nice place but some people have no class. Thank you Vincenzo for always going above and beyond with your food, service & Hospitality!!

We were celebrating our 33rd anniversary and had a very nice meal. We started off with the appetizer specials which were delicious. I had the special entree which was a tile fish dish. It was prepared perfectly. My husband had chicken which is on the menu. We had very good desserts- white chocolate cheesecake and tiramisu specially presented. Everything was delicious and the staff was very attentive.
