The food is excellent. The service however, was not. And we were there before the rush. The server did not tell us about any specials. After we had ordered we heard the server tell the couple at the next table about the specials. We felt rushed, being asked for our order almost upon being seated. Then when we said we needed more time, the waiter disappeared so long another server came to ask if us if he could help, whereupon our original server returned. Took forever to get bread, etc.
Great dinner!! Plenty of food with each entree.
Excellent ambiance and service. Pre dinner drinks in the bar was excellent. Very engaging staff with wonderful music. Great location with easy parking. Great evening.
The service was excellent. Food was ok but pasta was overcooked.
Very loud from restaurant upstairs. Decent Italian restaurant and food was pretty typical of a Anywhere, USA restaurant (way above Olive Garden). Not exquisite, but not awful. Decent wines by the glass. Bartenders also waiting on tables in the main dining room. Took a while to order.
Our waiter, Patrick, was attentive and knowledgeable about the restaurant's menu and history. Great experience, great atmosphere and fantastic food.
Always a pleasure to eat at this place. Food and service are excellent.
Staff was extremely accommodating, the food was absolutely delicious, and the atmosphere was classy and relaxing!
We had a 7 pm reservation. We were places at a tiny table in the middle of the floor with people at the bar right next to us. It wasn’t a great spot and there were many empty tables where we could have been seated. Our waiter was also the bar tender. The food was very good. My wife had the salmon and it was cooked perfectly. Overall, it was ok. I would go back but only for a special occasion.
Enjoyed a pleasant Saturday evening once again. Nice bottle of Antenori wine. Veal piccata and marsala were very good. Pasta fresh and tasty. Will return.
Presentation was great, service was great.
I just wasn't wow'd over the food for the amount spent. It was just good....
Had dinner and show deal. Dinner was pre fix but was fantastic, added in a few glasses of wine that were great. Check them out you won’t be disappointed.
As always, excellent experience
The service and ambiance was great. That said, the food was poor. There are many other Italian restaurants downtown that put Vincent Chico’s to shame. I imagine you can always get a table at Vincent Chico’s, but visitors are better off trying somewhere else and waiting to be seated. Doubt we would be back.
Five Star Food, Service and Ambiance!!! Thank you for a wonderful experience!
Service is excellent. Scallops were great. The pizza was just ok.
Service was outstanding and the present I and taste of the food was amazing
We both had different fresh pasta dishes and they were delicious! The Sunday pasta sauce had scrumptious pieces of pork that were tender and tasty!
The servie was great right from the beginning to end The food could not have been any better and the presentation of the food was fabulous.
Went on Valentine’s day, service and wine were good. Food was subpar. Mine was way too salty, wife’s just didn’t taste good. I had the marsala, wife had the meat and cheese board.
Food was descent. Service was a tad better. Very cool place though.
Excellent service. Beautiful place. Food is just ok. I was fine with my meal (salmon). My husband had the veal Marsala and found it to be very heavy, veal and pasta over cooked. Saw other dishes that looked good so our experience may have just been “unfortunate.”
Great service and food.
Great food! The wait for dinner after ordering was long, although we were enjoying the company of our dinner guests. Will come again.
This was our first trip to Charleston (love it btw). After a few days of fried chicken and green tomatoes, fish sandwiches, shrimp and grits, etc - we were in the mood for Italian. The Hutson Alley is beautiful - several restaurants including Vincent Chicco's are located there. We wanted to sit at the bar, but the bar stools in Vincent's had no backs. The waiter (terrific by the way - he helped us with wine for dinner). So we were allowed to sit at their sister restaurant's bar next door (Victor's Social House) and order from Vincent's menu - perfect. Nice and quiet. Great music. The bartender at the Social House did call on the Vincent's waiter to assist with the wine however. He was also very sociable and talked to us about Charleston etc. The salad and pizza were delicious - just what we were looking for.
Great dining area, outstanding meal and service. Would recommend for anyone wanting a relaxing fine dining out with family, friends or your bride.
We were so impressed with this restaurant! They were very attentive and totally into making sure their customers were happy, satisfied and enjoying themselves. From our waiter to the owners everyone was involved in making this an experience to remember and all their efforts paid off! We love it!! We did the dinner and a show package. It was our 38th wedding anniversary and the owners surprised us with a wonderful glass of champagne and a extra delicious dessert. Food was top drawer. Will definitely go back!!
We were the only ones in the restaurant which was odd but fine. Food was just ok. Tried to do too much with basic items which went a little too far. Caprese tomatoes were over soaked in balsamic. Veal picatta was fair. Salmon was decent except for the tart strawberries and the liquid that was all over the plate. Server was very nice.
What a great restaurant! This was our second time here, and the food was delicious especially the Sunday Gravy dish with fusilli, our waiter Patrick was top notch!
Thank you Connor,
What a memorable night. They exceeded my expectations and made her birthday so special. I made a special request through the open table app and they were able to make it happen. The food was amazing Connor took the time to explain about how they make their bread in-house and how they prepared the butter. He made a great suggestion for the chicken which my wife enjoyed and the salmon was amazing great flavors. The tomatoes on the bruschetta was so fresh. I only wish we had room for dessert. Thank you for making this night special for my wife on her birthday...
We love Vincent Chiccos! It is a hidden gem and the food is fabulous. Reminds me of an old speak easy back in the day. The service was excellent too!
I had a pre-concert dinner with my lovely wife and we couldn't have selected a better place to celebrate our 20th anniversary! Dinner was fabulous and the ambiance was right up our "alley"! Pun-intended! Service was excellent! We highly recommend Vincent Chicco's! Classy joint!
Amazing service, food was beyond delicious. A beautiful hole in the wall
We were there for my daughter’s 18th birthday with a few of her friends. The restaurant was great. Atmosphere is upscale but not overly “fancy”. The food was terrific- especially my chicken piccata. One of the best I have ever had ( and I order it a lot). Service was great. Desserts yummy- would definitely return !
Wonderful dinner off the busy track... fine Italian... Kyle was an attentive and fun server... short but select wine list... will return!
We were in town for the weekend and had a group of 7. College age and high school. The Alley is charming and a great value for really good food and setting!
Just ok all around. Pasta was in bowl and just piled in there with limited flavor. Just expected more...
The food was wonderful and the portions were so large. Service was excellent. Will come back again.
Very attentive wait staff. Food arrived promptly and on proper plates - cold for the salad, hot for the entrees. House made bread and compound butter. Good wine and cocktail selections. Highly recommended.
I had the pleasure of having dinner here with my fiancé & a close friend on Saturday (01/12/19). We initially came for restaurant week but the menu was so enticing we opted out of the special & i decided to get the Salmon! It was incredible!! Juicy, flavorful & prepared very uniquely (strawberries). Definitely a must try dish & we will most certainly will be back SOON!!
