I've been to Vincente's twice, and BOTH times the ambience was amazing and exceptional. Friendly hostess, great waitstaff. A very romantic place to take your sweetheart, or to share wonderful food with your family. I'm making Vincente's a restaurant I'll be frequenting.

We had an outstanding dinner and a great time! We prefer to order from the talking menu because chef Danny is a great help in designing new and different dinner options. My wife had Lamb and mushrooms with the demi-glaze sauce while I had mixed seafood Over angel hair. We started with the Caesar salad which is always a fun show. Finished dinner with a freshly made cannoli which was crisp and The filling was excellent and plentiful.

We LOVE Vincente's. We have been going there for years. We were a little worried when Mr Vincente passed away but Danny has carried on very well and is doing his father proud. We have celebrated Birthday's, Anniversary's, friend dinners and romantic dinners for just the two of us. Tom makes a great Cosmo, which Vincente's is the only restaurant I will order one.
If you've never been, you have to have the table side Caesar Salad prepared by Danny and if you do not like whats on the menu, Danny is a walking menu !

Needless to say, we will always go back.

I was more then happy with our evening. I had 8 adults and 2 children. It was my wife's birthday celebration and they were kind enough to let us sit away from the normal Friday night crowd. Food and drink were excellent and Vincente's son is taking up right where his father left off. Been going to Vincente's since he started on Union St. Even had my daughters rehearsal dinner at Vincente's. Love the place.

What a elegant, decadent place to take my Mom. Special thanks to Danny, Tommy, and Amy. Everything was spectacular. The food was decadent. I love how all we have to mention is a type of food we are craving (like steak, fish, etc) and Danny, Tommy, and the staff miraculously make all these wonderful suggestions on pairings, how to cook, types, etc. This is exactly why I keep coming back and why my Mom loves this place. I had a decadent peppercorn encrusted steak with Gorgonzola cheese topping this feast of perfection. It was sidelined with sauteed spinach and garlic. My Mom had rockfish with this ever-so-light dusting of this melt in your mouth panco breading and she could even get the garlic wine butter sauce on the side. It was perfect. Of course, a wonderful wine pairing with the main meal was a necessity and spot on. The ending was evening more delightful than the main course with Mom's lemoncello cake.

I have been to Vincentes many times and have never been disappointed. The food, the atmosphere, the service, and the Caesar Salad table side is hands down the best Caesar salad you will ever eat. And be sure to try the cafe diablo but have a designated driver; the creation of it and the actual drink itself are phenomenal.

Good prices. Food was good, but not great --- veal was overcooked. We enjoyed ourselves, but the owner kept dropping by. While I'm sure he meant to be nice, it became annoying when it continued. Once would have been enough.

It was our 7th anniversary dinner. We had never dined there, but they welcomed us as family. Service was prompt, the staff was very friendly, but unobtrusive. Authenic Italian, and they make special requests with dishes they have ingrediants for. Perfect for a casual evening. Great Sinatra music background. We'll definitely be back.

I'm never sure how to review this establishment til Dan the Executive Chef/Owner made a comment about "They've been dining here for 40 years."
The place is fun when it comes to watching tableside items being prepared. But the food is, well, lackluster. It's good, but it's not great. It's home-style and satisfies, but nothing WOW. Salad is always good.
Waitress seemed either busy or preoccupied. We ordered a bottle of wine when we placed our main order but that didn't arrive until after the main courses. Would have been nice to let it breathe. Then it took a while to get our check paid.
The bar area had several patrons in there and a Phillies game on. You could clearly hear them cheering from our table on the total opposite side of the restaurant.

Just don't go expecting any new age dishes. This is a long standing menu of good food, but it needs an update.
And the real killer that gets me every time..... The CHEAP cafeteria utensils. Even upgrading those would give it a better feel. Nothing like eating nice food with cheap utensils.

I made this reservation for my mom and her two friends that live out of state. They couldn't stop talking about how great the food was and how personable the staff was. They will definitely be back next time they are in Delaware. Thanks Danny and Tommy for making this an experience they won't forget!

My husband and I really do love Vincente's. The food is very good. Danny offers a "walking menu" you can take anything from the menu and have it changed up if you want. Danny does a table side Caesar Salad that we always order, as it is not only delicious but entertaining. Always recommend it to others.

Food is always top-notch and creative. The Caesar Salad made right at your table is a must and very friendly and entertaining. Service is just adequate, but not up to par with the actual dining, which is quiet and comfortably romantic without being "uppity." We were not offered menus until we finally had to ask for them, after being at our table for about 5 minutes and already giving our drink orders. Wait staff does not appear to be as "dressy" as one might expect from a dining experience such as this. And the silverware seemed very cheap; light and dull. Otherwise, this is always a nice dining experience because the food is excellent and the owner is terrific.

I wanted to take my girlfriend somewhere nice because it had been awhile since we had a nice date. I came across Vincentes on open table and it looked like a great place to surprise her with. Not only did this place meet my expectations but it blew them out of the water. It was some of the best food I had ever tasted. We started with the table-side made Caesar Salads and now every other salad is a disappointment compared that one. The meals were great, along with amazing service. The staff was very kind and very helpful with menu choices. We ended with the amazing Banana foster, which was the perfect way to end any meal. You could taste every ingredient that went into it. The fact that this restaurant has been here so close to home without us noticing blows my mind, I am happy open table helped me find it. Needless to say we will be returning, and I will recommend this place to all of my friends.

Celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary at Vincente's. From the time we were greeted by the hostess until we left, service was so on point. Our waitress congratulated us on our anniversary as soon as she came to our table. The owner-chef also stopped at our table to acknowledge our special day.
On to the food: complimentary appetizers was a nice touch. Of course, who can eat at Vincente's without experiencing the table-side Caesar salad "show?" Best Caesar salad ever! The Flounder Vincente was very tasty...my wife's filet mignon was cooked to perfection.
The crowning point: a complimentary anniversary cake that was just the right touch. But, to top all that, on our way to our car, a waitress (who hadn't even served us) was outside on break and wished us a happy anniversary!! Little things mean a lot and go a long way!! Extremely impressed!!
