It was my Birthday and Augustino made the evening so special for my family an me...
The best Italian Restaurant in Ky
Great atmosphere, relaxed and excellent service.
I had incredible Dover sole, and my friend had Chilean sea bass. Both were incredible!
Always a pleasure to dine. Staff are great, food is excellent and the warmth of Mr. Vincenzo is so sincere.
Vincenzo’s is always wonderful - from Vincenzo’s warm welcome, delicious food, expert tableside preparation, to lush desserts.
Always special when you are at Vincenzos
He is always there to meet and greet you and make sure your dinner is special
We visited Vincenzo’s as a result of purchasing a Groupon voucher. So glad we did! The food was phenomenal, the service was fantastic. The overall experience will keep us coming back again and again
Food and service were outstanding. Had the Crepes Agastino. It was delicious .
I was celebrating a birthday and was offered free dessert. The dessert was wonderful.
I highly recommend this restaurant. I will definitely visit again.
Wow! What a disaster! Started off badly and never recovered. The beer ordered was warm. They were sold out of dishes (7pm on Saturday). Missing the table side preparation. Scallop seared too heavily on one side, not at all on the other. Filet well overdone, not even close. The soufflé has fallen. The coffee was cold. The toilet wasn't even working properly. Good grief! I've had very nice experiences previously. Hopefully, this was just an off night.
Normally have an amazing evening, this time I found myself frustrated, thirsty, hungry and needing a cigarette. We have came for many years to celebrate our wedding anniversary, not sure if our waiters were over whelmed or what, but my table was not of importance. Did not even get offered dessert asked for the check and was brought a dessert to go along with my check, guess he got my frustrated vibe. I will return just will ask for a particular waiter. #happyanniversary17badservicedidntruinourday
Fantastic food and service...
Wonderful as usual...been there many times and always great
This was our first visit to Louisville passing thru on our way to Michigan. Saw this restaurant on GoogleMaps and TripAdvisor - decided to give it a try. Excellent food and service. We were under dressed for the location but everyone made us feel very comfortable. Food, salads, soups, and dessert were excellent. Loved the table-side service -- don't get to see that very often any more. Thanks for a great night out.
Wonderful date night experience! Always a memorable experience to go to Vincenzo’s.
The food and service was wonderful. Loved how Vencinzo stopped by our table to greet us and make sure everything was satisfactory.
The food was great. Definitely fine dining with dishes you can not get at many authentic Italian Restaurants around town. Both Vincenzo brothers came over and greeted and spoke to us. Very nice touch. Service was great. There is a lot of wait staff to take care of your every need which is a blessing but also distracting. And that leads to my only complaint. We were seated in the dreaded area next to the kitchen and there was sooo much movement it was extremely loud and distracting taking away from the overall experience. I half heartedly joked I was feeling motion sickness. In the future I will ask to be seated elsewhere and if it is not an option, I will dine elsewhere that evening. In my opinion that table needs to be taken out of the restaurant. I would return but will never sit at that table again.
Can't Go Wrong With Vincenzo's. I've never had a bad meal there.
Arrived on time, but had to wait 30 additional minutes after our reservation time. Hostess didn’t seemed concerned, so I think this is a normal event.
Table service was excellent, food delivery was extremely slow, food tasted excellent as always.
I’ll recommend to others, but wouldn’t be my first choice.
Our party of 4 arrived early for our 7:30pm reservation on a Friday night. Although our table was not ready, they did offer us the opportunity to sit in the bar. We were seated by our hostess who helped out getting us settled at our table. Kyle our waiter introduced himself and state we would be served by himself and his assistants Tony and another person. He informed use that bread and water would be out and offered to serve cocktails, instead we selected a wine recommended that was a red Italian wine. This later turned out to be one of the best features of the meal. Unfortunately, a slight low point arrived with what seemed like a long time to get water and bread. It was very busy and apparently water glasses had all been used! Kyle recommended a pasta appetizer and all in the party were ready to order. In addition, we all ordered Caesar salad that was excellent and was made at the table side. The different entrees arrived after completion of our salads and each thought they had made an excellent choice. The range of entrees included scallops Rockefeller, veal with mushrooms, cheese stuffed ravioli with chicken, and NY strip steak. All were at the right temperature and tasted great. We were all too full to have desert, but maybe next time. That red wine from Italy was full of fruit, well-mannered tannins, and velvety smooth. I wish we could have had more, but price for each bottle can break a budget!
Nearly everything was great at Vincenzo’s except that we were never served our dinner. Just one of those nights that seemed like a Hell’s Kitchen episode. We had reservations at 7:15 and had to leave at 9:00 to catch our show. Our salads came out promptly but waited until 9:00 for the main course and we just couldn’t wait any longer. We were not the only ones and the servers took all the heat from the customers. It’s not what you would expect from a restaurant that plasters all of its awards at the door.
I loved ambience of the restaurant. My husband said the veal was excellent and had a very good flavor. The filet was tasty and cooked to perfection.Salad was refreshing and crisp. The wine was reasonable and lots of different wines to choose from to go with entrees. I would recommend this dining experience to others.
This was only my second time here, but it was still as great as the first. The food is priced very well for the type of environment that they provide. The service is excellent and were always timely. I would recommend this place to treat that special someone in your life! Great place overall!
Great atmosphere. Staff was A+. Food is to die for.
Vincenzo himself was greeting people at the entrance to the main dining room and also plating food for many of the tables (they lightly heat the entree over flame then plate it right in the dining room after cooking it in the kitchen). They had all 5 dining rooms open and were packed, so having the owner involved to the level of plating my dinner and patting my shoulder repeatedly as he walked by, was a great touch. It wasn’t cheap- exactly $200 for my wife and I, but that got us a delicious tortellini appetizer to share, a half bottle of moscato for her, a good authentic Kentucky Old-Fashioned for me and also 2 more obscure bourbons from their extensive list, 2 excellent entrees, and a big tiramisu. It is well lit and not too silent, but plenty high-end enough for us before heading a block down the street to the Kentucky Center for a play afterward. It was a great choice.
tasty food. great preparation. favorite family spot for birthdays and holidays.
Had a dinner reservation prior to our musical. Seated us promptly and were greeted by our servers within minutes. Had an app, salad, and main course plus a couple of adult beverages. Service was excellent, food was delicious. A bit pricey, but worth it for special occasions
My wife and I throughly enjoyed our meal. It was the best dining experience we’ve had in a long time. We have been telling everyone about it.
Waiter was rude and inattentive, food was good but nothing special. Valet service was good.
Vincenzo‘s is always great. We learned to go there before theater. The food is always fantastic, service cannot be beat and location and atmosphere or the best. Casey’s service was excellent.
Vincenzo's offers an upscale dining experience that's fun for a special occasion or when you've got a guest to impress. My feedback is based on my recent dinner experience.
Overall, the service is great, but if you've got somewhere to be in a hurry, Vincenzo's is not the spot to go. Dinner service usually runs about an hour and a half, maybe a little longer for a larger party. You might feel that you've been forgotten from time to time, but the timing allows you to converse with others in your party and also digest each delicious course before moving on to the next.
One of the best aspects of the entire experience is Mr. Vincenzo. He stands near the entry way to great the guests, and he walks around to interact with people at their tables. When the food is brought out table side, he plates each dish himself. He interacted with my friend and I quite a bit, which made the overall experience more special.
Our server, Lukas, was helpful when my friend and I told him about our respective food allergies. He even double-checked with the kitchen and came back to tell my friend that she wouldn't be able to eat the original dish she selected because there was an allergen in the sauce (which wasn't obvious from the menu description). I really appreciate that attention to detail because I've been misinformed about ingredients at other dining establishments. In my friend's case, he prevented a case of anaphylactic shock. My friend ordered the tomato and mozzarella salad (it's AMAZING!!) and a ravioli dish. She said that pasta dishes elsewhere don't even come close in comparing to Vincenzo's. I ordered a caesar salad and salmon with champagne dill sauce; both were wonderful. We received a lot of food for the price.
Vincenzo's also offers coat check and valet parking. Tip: take advantage of the $5 valet fee!! It'll save you time and walking if you try to find an open space somewhere else; this is especially helpful during the winter to avoid the cold and rain/snow.
We have gone to Vincenzo’s for Valentine’s dat now 5 out of the past 6 years. As always service and food is excellent. However as the years go by when you walk into the restaurant the first people you are greeted by are the hostess. Their attire has gotten worse and worse over the years. They should be held to the same high level of standards that the rest of the restaurant is at. We are at this point not sure that we will return to your restaurant due to this.
We thank you for all of the years of wonderful food and excellent service staff!
Halibut dry. Ravioli very thin and tasteless. Caesar salad very plain.
Party of four seated couples separately for 30 min. All four checked in within 5 minutes using the same name for the party of four. Each was told the other couple was not present yet.
Prices doubled and were outragrous. $18 split fee unacceptable. Special fish entree was dry and tasteless. Bill was not itemized.
Had a $50 Groupon expiring that night was not allowed because Valentines is considered a holiday. Wont be purchasing anymore Groupons or returning to Vincenzo’s.
I was very disappointed in our experience. Upon arrival it took 4 hostess a good 5-6 min to find our reservation. Then a discussion about where they were going to put us was very uncomfortable. Our waiter didn't seem like he wanted to be there and was slow to respond. We had to wait a little while for him to take our order and refill our beer and wine. There were people seated after us who left before us. We didn't even have an appetizer. My husbands glass had a crack in it. When we told the waiter he said "okay". Never apologizing. He brought him another glass and went to fill it, realized there was something wrong with that one too but didn't say a word. Picked it up and left for a good little while. When he finally came back he poured my husbands beer with an inch of beer and literally 5 inches of foam. He couldn't even drink it. Again waiter says nothing just walks off.
My husbands chicken was good but I got the filet and it wasn't very good. For a filet it was tough and not something I would recommend.
The restrooms were beyond awful. Dirty, outdated and scary really. I made the comment a step above McDonalds maybe and my husband said oh no way. Step below.
Everything in the restaurant seemed like a facade. The wait staff looked like they were playing dress up with oversized jackets and the hostess were wearing shorts with high heels kinda thing. The tables in the main area slanting down most of the room looked like those collapsible grey tables you put up at a home party. Our table had such a thin cheap white table cloth that I could very clearly see a gaudy flower pattern underneath.
It was Valentines day they gave a rose to the women. Everyone except me and another lady in the restaurant received one. I didn't even complain about anything we were experiencing. Just taking it in. So I am not sure why I didn't deserve to get a rose. :)
Overall not good. We will continue to frequent and recommend Ruby's and Merlot's.
The hosts/hostesses who greeted us were very friendly, but the server was a bit unkempt, not overly friendly, and almost didn’t seem honest when my wife ordered a glass of sparkling wine and was told they only serve those in half bottles. When she showed it to him on the menu, he advised ‘it’s...not...ready’. She was able to find another drink but that felt odd. My $17 Caesar salad was mediocre, with most of the lettuce starting to wilt. Our table felt cramped, especially when the servers kept bumping into us while wheeling their portable grill around and reheating food inches away from us, including my $52 filet, which was over cooked and so covered in the mushroom sauce that I was sick of it by the time I was finished. For a $189 tab, I’d expect a vastly improved experience, which is always the case at Jeff Ruby’s for example, so we’ll probably not return.
Looked for special Valentine’s Day menu online, none there. Disappointed the lamb chops weren’t available because they’re always amazing. Ordered the Gorgonzola stuffed filet instead, ordered medium, got well-done but they checked promptly on our food and immediately took it away and brought another that was perfect! Love this place!!
The food and service are fabulous! We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating Valentine’s Day at Vincenzo’s. The food is always wonderful but the service elevated the experience to another level. Thank you for a wonderful evening!
We were able to get reservations on Valentine's night. Vincenzo's made it a fabulous evening.
We love to come here and will of course return. Treat yourself to great service, amazing food, and fabulous traditon.
Valentines dinner was great. Great staff and great experience. Highly recommended
